The ticking noise is either coming from the tappets or the cam phasers. It is not a common problem on the 5.0L. But it does need to be properly diagnosed. If you are taking it back to the dealership, have them fix it.

If you can give me the VIN#, I can pull up the warranty service history if there is any on it.

Below is the OASIS print out.

There is no reported warranty history on the F150. I can only look up any warranty repair history. If there was an cash repair work, the dealership the vehicle was taken to will have that. Ford does not retain the cash repairs in their database.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
