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!?!
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.

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
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.
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.

This is a rebuilt 2005 Ford F150 Engine being tested after a rebuild. This
engine failed because a cam follower bearing wore out after 140,000 miles.
The engine started making clicking sounds from under the head cover. This
