Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
hello, is this a new or used engine you installed? is the tick noise coming from the top end of the engine like a lifter or possible spark plug wire breaking up? Did you replace the ignition wires and do a tune up with the replacement engine? original ignition coil?is the check enginelight on?
Ok so it sounds like you might have a lifter noise, need to isolate the noise to see if it is a lifter or rocker arm issue since its a reman engine, either can cause a slight miss if the valvetrain isnt opening and closing properly as it should. You can remove the valve cover from the side that is making noise and run the engine which is little messy to inspect the valvetrain and isolate the noise
Hello, do you need more help with this concern?
