View Full Version : Valve covers bubbles

03-27-2008, 08:02 AM
I have a 2004 with 6000 miles on it and the finish on the valve covers is getting bubbles on it. I know it will eventually start to peel. Very disapointed. I called Ford and obviously they do not want to do anything about it. I really do not want to buy new ones but until I have then taken off and try to match the finish at the body shop with a heat resistant paint and clear coat new ones might not be much more expensive. Any one out there have this problem?

Are these valve covers powder coated!

I have not seen any bubbles on mine (yet). Engine has 38k miles on it now. However I did notice one thing, once the engine is at operating temperature the paint seems to get tacky and soft as if it was not cured properly. If I get issues with the paint I will move on to polished valve covers (not painted).
