O.K. first I must say sorry to okfordteck for calling him a troll...I guess you could be both a tech and troll but that does not seem to be the case.I want to know;
is this just 05?
what are the symptoms too look for?
Do trucks with melted pistons have bad head gaskets too?(might make sense.)
You said perhaps leaky injectors and other say fords cut off is 5%fuel in the oil, perhaps a new cut off is in order?
I am sure others have better quesions but I would like too prevent this if it is in my controll.. the list...

From the few trucks that we have had in here one was a non modified excursion. It had no chip or program and ran half way descent except for no power. Just went down one day on customer and hole number 3 was missing. After a call to technical hotline we where told that for some unknown reason that #3 #5 where melting...thats all that i know...everything else like leaking injectors and stuck vgt solenoids is purely speculation. Make sure you keep your maintenece up and get a reprogram when u can. I really didnt mean to piss in anybodys post toasties on that first post of mine...Happy truckin dude and good luck
