If there is any way to get them to buy it back, do it. When a 5.4 3 valve starts doing stuff like this, it's going to be a money pit. The variable cam timing system is a piece of shit.

To get it running right, plan on spending about 2 grand. That's for a full timing set and a high volume oil pump. It also may need followers and lash adjusters.
