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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOUDr0dFggw
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!?!
