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.
01 F150 KingRanch 5.4L SeaFoam
This is the first time I ran SeaFoam on my 01 F150 KingRanch. I ran it
through the Vacuum line connected to my intake. Throttle is a bit more
responsive. I never had a problem before but thought I'd run it through
anyways. Makes a lot of smoke so make sure you're in a well ventilated
area and your windows and doors are closed
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.

2008 f150 engine noise
Just bought the truck has 55,000 klicks had the vct's replaced and both
timing chains. Did the oil among everything else I could think of. And this
is the result. Only happens from time to time. Can't replicate it in front
of the dealer. They can't figure out the problem. Any ideas or help?
Usually only happens when I'm parking the car after a long drive and has
never happened when I have the heat running. I shut off the vents and the
motor runs a little rough. I shift from drive to reverse and voila. You
have your ugly noise. Any feedback would be appreciated.
Replacing blown out spark plug
A common problem with Ford Triton engines is that they will blow the spark
plug out, usually # 3 or # 4 on the passenger side. Some people say the
only repair is to take the head off. There is a tool designed to drill
out, re-tap, & install an insert. I've done it many times and so far they
all are still holding. I thought you might like to see how it's done
before you do one yourself.

Ford 5.4l Rebuild
This is a slideshow of the progress I have made with the rebuild of my 1998
Ford F150 5.4l Triton V8. I put this together because I was not able to
completely shot video of the whole process and thought m viewers might like
to see some pictures. The slideshow shows the final stages of putting the
motor together and putting it back in the truck. It took about 5 hours to
get the engine and transmission back into the truck's engine bay. That was
with the help of my dad and my buddy (VW guy working on a Ford lol)
Long story short, The motor and transmission are back in the truck, hooked
up, the motor cranks but I have not fired it yet.
