how many miles?
The only real issue on the 05-08 V8 &V10 3V gas engine is the spark plugs. To avoid the problems with the threads pulling out on the earlier engines as mentioned above Ford went with a whole new plug design. Unfortunately, when the fixed one problem they caused another, as the new plugs are a 2-piece design and can break when removed. If you are ever going to change them yourself do some online research first so you can learn all the tricks. If you take it to a shop make sure its one where they are familiar with the procedure for changing them. Other than that, these are great engines
