My truck started a ticking sound months ago but I took it to a place and they told me that I have to replace the whole engine. I try to look for an engine but they are ridiculously expensive and with lots of miles. Now the truck turned the engine light and its losing power.
klacking noise .... truck sounds like a diesel
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.
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.
The noise sounds like lifters, but since there are none in this engine, I initially thought that it was an exhaust leak. The other day, I pulled up to a friends house and he said, "I didn't know that you had a diesel."
We bought the 2008 linclon mark lt and every time it went to have a oil change I was told it had a ticking coming from engine when I brought it to ford they never heard it was told that was normal for this truck the engine to big to get oil to all parts a shame for a linclon
