Help! my 2013 v6 is acting up on me!

The car only has 23k miles. Since ive had it ive noticed that when I accelerate from a complete stop sometimes I will hear a thump in the engine (maybe spark knock?) Im also hearing an annoying ticking noise when I accelerate rather hard. As well during take off it will rev to almost 3k rpm before actually accelerating. So it hesitates to go. The ticking noise I believe is from valves but not sure. It sounds like a few pieces of gravel moving around in the engine. Its very shuttle until I really step on it. I took the car to ford and all they saw was a leaking seal at the rear pinion. They did not hear the noise ticking so im guessing they didnt check the valves or pistons. The invoice stated they checked for spark knock. Also my steering wheel is off center. What do these issues sound like to you. Any similar experiences?

Are you tuned? Either way, fill up a tank or two with union 76/chevron gasoline (91 octane) and see if it resolves your ticking problem

IMO, make Ford hear it. Even if it means another dealership. Plenty of Stealerships don't care and will ignore problems if you let them.

Yes I edit my posts a lot, auto correct likes to sabotage me!

I'm not tuned. I have tried 93 octane on a few tanks and it does not go away. Ford acts like they are clueless about the knock

Take it to a different dealership, you're covered under warranty anyway.

Take it to a new dealership and GO WITH THE TECH when he/she takes it for a drive and specifically let them know how to replicate the issue. You are under warranty and should not have to pay for them to fix this issue.
