Is there a check engine light on?

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Can I have your VIN to check for recalls?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No light
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Can I have your VIN? Where does the tick sound like it is coming from? Valve cover front cover? Is this a 6.2?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
6.2 The nearest I can tell it's coming from both sides of the valve cover.

Have you had a stethoscope on the engine to try and pinpoint the tick?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I tried using a hose but I can't pin point it. Seems the same on both side
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, there are no recalls for this VIN, I have seen several come into our shop with rough running and ticking noise and we found broken valve springs, I bet we have done at least a dozen on the 6.2's.

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

The broken ones were on the intake valves, but they still ran remarkably well.

Any tips while I'm on there?
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Are you going to do the repairs?

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Yea
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Here is some repair info, pretty straight forward, you will need a valve spring compressor to remove and install.

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

I would remove the valve covers first and inspect, grab the springs when are closed they should be tight and not loose, you can visually see if one is broken also.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Should I replace all of them? Should I do any thing with the rocker arms preventative wise?
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

I would only replace the broken sping if there is one, just take a good look at the rocker shaft and adjusters for looseness and wear, I haven't seen any rocker failures but take a good look.

I thought it was consistent but I did hear it stop for a couple seconds then start again
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

I would pull the valve covers and look real close at all the valve train. You may have a roller rocker arm worn or have a flat spot on the roller.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
