2008 Triton 5.4 3v Phaser Knock Fixed with LockOuts
2008 F150 with the "fixed" cam phaser issue. Search around and you will quickly find that this is a wide spread issue that Ford is unable to fix. Most times you end up footing the bill and still walk away with the same problem either instantly or within a short time. I will be installing a cam phaser locks and updating the PCM to resolve this issue. Yes you will loose some HP and Torque but in the long run you dont have to keep paying for failed phasers and VCT solenoids. Currently the parts are back ordered (seems its hard to keep up with demand) but once they come in I will post another video of the results.

I need help diagnosing this noise. Any help would be appreciated! If I
left anything out that would help than just comment or PM me and I'll be

Update: We had the truck taken to a mechanic a week or two ago and he
replaced two or three coil packs, a couple spark plugs, and it runs like
new. The ticking is gone and it's gained power.
