Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 f150 that was running fine one morning and went to stop at a red light and motor shut down and engine light came on and said low oil pressure. I struggled to get it to crank to get it out of traffic and when it did it sounded horrible and had no power. I had it towed to my house where I had a friend put a hand held OBD reader on it and it showed a code po345 bank2 so I replaced the cam shaft position sensor. It didn't get any better. I changed the coils and still no better, I unplugged each coil individually and the only one that will kill the engine is number one on bank one, the rest I can unplug with no difference. I had a mechanic part time mechanic down the road look at it and he told me that it had a small knock on bank to and believed my phaser was bad so I had phasers, tensioners, guides, timing chain and oil pump all replaced he showed me where one of the tensioners had broken and we believed that was the cause and after all back together there is still no change. It will crank a lot easier than it did the day it broke down but runs really rough, shakes and has no power at all.

Hello, so it runs, but makes noise and runs poorly now? Any warning lights on, low oil pressure light on? How many miles on the engine?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Service engine light is on. 180,000 miles
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 2 years ago

Ok do you know what codes are stored now? It is still making engine noise? Have you checked engine oil pressure with a gauge?

I haven't done neither since he got through replacing the parts. Has a slight ticking noise when running
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 2 years ago

Ok need to know since the check engine light is on what code(s) are stored, if he replaced the vct solenoids with the timing chins and phasers, base engine oil pressure controls vct operation and with that many miles you can have a worn main engine bearing causing low oil pressure.

It only said low oil pressure that one time when it went dead. I just got the vct solenoid and I am replacing it this evening
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 2 years ago

Ok just checking, you are replacing the vct on the noisey side of the engine or both?

We just replaced it and it's a lot better but missing pretty bad and hard to crank. What is the firing order on this vehicle?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I only replaced the noisy side. The passenger side was replaced a few months ago
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
When we crank it it reads of gasoline

You cant change the firing order, the engine may be out of time when the timing chain was replaced, a compression test would tell you if it was.A check for codes will tell you more.

Can you tell me the firing order so that I can make sure my cams are set right? 2006 F150 5.4 triton 4x4
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It now sounds like a backfire through the intake. Almost a knocking noise

I forwarded video to the man working on truck and he broke it back down yesterday and when he Crunk it, it's still got a miss I watched the video and after watching I realized he has the left cam phaser on the passenger side and right on the drivers side. The video shows the opposite, will this make a difference?
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 2 years ago

Yes, as the timing marks are different on the different side phasers.
