Unhappy Engine Tapping/Ticking

Well, my 2012 GT with 14K miles on it goes to the dealer Tuesday to find out why I have a "tapping" or "ticking" noise...the noise just started a couple days ago. Can hear the noise very clearly if you scoot down and listen inside the passenger side front wheel well.

I took it to the dealer today and the mechanic that came outside to listen said it sounds like a valve. Wish me luck!

Careful, Ford Motor Co may say "not covered" because the flux capacitor is directly impacted by the dilithium core which is............ Borla exhaust. Sooooooo.

Ha. Jk.

But if you have a tune, they will crush you.

Well, if they blame it on the Borla Axel Backs, then I understand if it negatively affected the flux capacitor...EVERYBODY knows that if you install the Borla ATAKs, you take a chance damaging the flux capacitor.

Well, I did no mods at all to the engine, not even CAI or tune...Borla ATAKs are the only mod so far.

Smoke, if it is a loud ticking, I would get it looked at.

I would hope I'd hear something from the dealer by Wednesday...maybe you can wait to hear what they found with mine. Also Smoke, be sure to check your engine oil level regularly, I was told it is "normal" for these engines to use-up oil for the first 15K miles.

Re: Engine Tapping/Ticking

Well, heard from the dealer service department and they said it is an "internal engine" noise...they have to tear into the engine to find the cause, JUST what I wanted to hear!

Will keep you all posted as to what they find.

Re: Engine Tapping/Ticking

Well, the service rep. I talked to yesterday gave me a story about how the mechanic that was working on my Mustang had hot anti-freeze splash into his eyes and had to go to the hospital (working on another car).
So she put another mechanic on my car and he said that he doesn't hear anything out of the ordinary...the ticking he hears is normal fuel injector noise.

I have my car back now and as soon as I hear the loud ticking again I'm going to bring it to a different dealer in my area.
