Any theories/reasons why the cam phasers go bad?
The other day I took in a trade. Its an 04 FX4 with 77k on it. And the cam phasers are knocking to beat hell. I didnt believe it, because I didnt have it running long enough to notice. SO i went back to service because they had said they were going to change them out. And sure enough they were pretty bad(way worse than mine). So the service advisor, and a tech and I got to talking about reasonings why they go bad. And nothing ever came up about Fords mistakes. They both said its lack of proper maintenence. They know the springs go bad, but they say its lack of good oil getting there. Any one else heard of this?
