Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

This is an interference engine, if it jumped then most certainly valve damage. Ford also had series issues with these cylinder heads for valve seat recession.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
