klacking noise .... truck sounds like a diesel
I have the same clicking problem. I was told by the dealer that there is no fix but not hurting the engine (do not believe). I was told by an owner of a Lincoln Navigator that had the same problem and told the same thing b Ford but went to another service center and they fixed it by replacing the 7 and 8 plug. No more ticking. I think I need to try this.
5.4L engine has ticking sound and has gotten very louder lately. Now truck has started loosing power and idle at slower than normal RPM. Now yet can get it repaired under warrant or even get the dealer to acknowledge there's a problem.
