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.

Ford F150 5.4L 3V Triton Ticking Noise & Rev [solved]
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
sure to add it.
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.

My 04 Ford F150 makes a soft ticking noise
My 04" Ford F150 has a soft ticking noise. It has a V8 5.4lt. I have taken
it to 4 different Ford Dealerships to ask why my truck ticks...it started
at 107,000miles and they all said its normal. I don't believe that...they
say its bc of large injectors. I have Googled different reasons like oil
pressure problems, injectors or spark plugs. All i know is, it only does it
when the engines warmed up and only at idle. At 124,000miles my truck died
when i was driving it. I took it in at ford dealership 30miles away. They
put a new Cam Phaser in on the driver side " but the ticking comes from the
passenger side,HMMM??" changed the VCT sensor and spent 5 days working on
the timing chain. Oh, they also said they had to update the
software....what software??....It still ticks!?!

How To SeaFoam 2004-2008 5.4L Ford F150
Here is a quick vid of how to SeaFoam a 2004-2008 Ford F150 5.4L V8. The
best way to do it that I have found is through the Brake Booster Line, as it feeds all the cylinders at
Disconnect the Brake Booster Line,
or whatever Vacuum line you plan to use. With the engine running, start
feeding the line into the bottle to suck out the fluid. You will have to
have someone inside the vehicle to keep the RPM's between 1600 and 2000.
Going over wont blow your engine or anything, but it doesnt allow the fluid
to fully saturate the components.
After you have sucked up the amount of fluid that you want to use, turn off
the engine and let it sit for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, go ahead and
start it up and start revving the engine as you see in the video. This
will clean out most of the gunk and buildup, but like I said in the video,
after the smoke starts to dissipate, take the vehicle for a drive. Punch
it once or twice to make sure to dislodge all the extra crap.
This stuff will work wonders. You will notice a smoother idle and you will
gain a bit of power that has been lost to the carbon buildup in the engine.
Sorry for the undershirt and shorts, it was a lazy Saturday haha.
