So have am considering buying a 2006 E350 van with the V10 that has a spun rod bearing. I have been looking and it seems like bad rod bearings is a somewhat common thing on some of the V10’s. Was there a material issue with these that Ford never resolved or maybe a design issue?
I am considering buying or doing some horse trading with the guy. I can rebuild an engine so the expense of an engine swap is greatly diminished. I have seen several of these that have early rod bearing failure and not sure I want to take on a project only to have the rebuild fail prematurely due to a design flaw.
