lol, k ive had my F**d for 2 weeks now, of which its been in the garage being fixed for 10 of those days.
i have never heard of this ever in any car. it blows the oil filter gasket. except the last time i stripped the sump off and cleaned everything, reassembled and it was all good. then it didnt blow the gasket, it blew the friggin crimping around the filter itself. so if anyone has heard of this happening on any car and what the problem was it will be much appreciated.

ps im pretty sure its not just the fact that its a ford.

the oil pressure relief valve might not be operating or it is trying to kill itself:yeah: joking... might want to start at the source with a mechanic and get his opinion
