Hi Famine,

To answer your second paragraph on the new block. Ford (not the dealer) told me the TSB would have no effect on the car since it was made after the fix was already implemented into production. They quoted other complaints on the issue where they tried this per customer request. The Dealer did duplicate the sound, and did not diagnose. First, they called Ford Company to ask for similar sounds on their record. According to the Dealer, Ford told them they have replaced a few blocks for a similar sound but the Dealers were not able to give a good answer after trying to diagnose and multiple part replacements In other cars with the exact same sound, the only KNOWN solution by Ford was to replace the short blocks.

Regards.

For those with the new short blocks, did they try the tsb before replacing? Did they tear it down or what to diagnose? Was there any compression lost?

It used to go away after 500-1000 miles, It did reduce its consistency but now is ALWAYS there on warm start. I'm at 19.8k right now and about to take it in for the 4th service this upcoming week.



Hopefully it doesn't keep getting worse

The same thing has been happening to me except this time the same thing it didn't go away after 500-1000 miles. (35k miles on car)

Is yours the tick on the right hand side by the front wheel or the one that sounds like it's coming from within the block? No matter what, get it on video. Then I'd search as many threads as I could on all the different forums and canvas the screen names of those who claim they got a dealership to take them seriously. I have not yet seen a resolution that did not end in a new engine but the goal is just diagnosis and fix. Then see if any list a location in their profile which you can reach. Find out what dealership they took the car to if you can, or cold call them if you can't. Then make sure you have your issue on clear video, and get them to change your oil. Go from there. Worst comes to worst you have to do what Peachdown did and go through Ford if they acknowledge the situation. This is an ongoing engine problem, Ford is still trying to figure it out. The dealership with my car shipped my engine to Detroit last week, and if it doesn't get stolen in Detroit, Ford plans to try to figure out what went wrong with it.

The sad part about that is the new engines don't have any fix and have the same chance at starting the tick all over, which puts my stomach in a knot.

Update on my engine:
After a complete rebuild (new block, crank, 1new piston, all new rings and bearings) - the rings never settled in. I drove it 3,000 miles, burning a Qt. every 300 miles. After 2-3 diagnosis, they finally ordered a new engine. This is a complete engine - heads and all. Contrary to other's story, my dealer said that a "short block" was not available for these. Either way, I'm 1000 miles in, 1st oil change, and all is well right now.

All this is what makes me nervous to even have a 5.0 somewhat.

Your dealer is full of it, as you know. I'm glad it's being done right for you now. The case must be that Ford does not have 100% of discretion. Your dealer must as well, because my dealership did not send me through this rigamarole.

Yeah... Stressful months trying to get here! The best thing - they never told me the sound was normal. Kudos on that part.

Congratulations finally getting here. I got told it was normal at first but when they actually heard it they admitted it's what they saw before. I'll try to find out more Wednesday when I hope to pick up the car, but they said there were a lot of metal shavings in the engine. Enough that they replaced the long block.

Some dealership has to say what it is.

And some are astonished that I don't want to/won't mod the engine in any way.

That's mine prior to TSB fix. Sorry for delay on replies. Keep forgetting to check.

Mine sounds something like that, specially when the a/c is on.

Mine is more prevalent from the passenger side. Warm, idle only. It is rhythmic but the volume/sound of the tick/tap varies with each tick. Sounds like a belt/tensioner/pulley sound to me but I can't seem to find the problem.

2 friends have the same sound as I do. Was there since day 1 when I bought it at the end of 2013. 14 GT with track pack, currently 4.6k miles as of yesterday.

Drives me nuts but the dealer and I haven't been able to figure it out

It's annoying to hear it every time I'm driving. I can hear it at idle when the car is already warm. If I get it around the 1,5k rpm I can hear a constant tick. Hopefully is not something bad, I'm taking it to the dealership on Thursday.

I commented on this thread about 20K miles ago. My tick is as loud as ever after an oil change with a warm engine and is completely gone after about 400 miles. Not one thing has gone wrong and I am now at 67K miles. About to do a tune up and throw some power adders on.

I post this to hopefully put some of you at ease because I am confident that if you have whatever I have that causes this tick (there could be several causes) you'll be just fine - especially if you have less miles than I do (which I'm pretty sure you do - 67K miles on mine).

I will comment again after about 10K miles with the 91 tune, off road h, and CAI I intend to install. Just to give you guys an update. My car currently has a completely stock power/drivetrain.

It's likely your ac belt. It's a stretchy and not a tensioner style assembly. The TSB fixed mine even though mine was built outside the TSB year range.

Sorry to revive an older thread, just wanted to update my issue. Ford did the TSB above late last year. Just did first oil change since then and the wonderful tick has returned. 7 months of a tick free coyote and 1 oil change later and it's back. Same exact tick. However, seems it's much more prominent when I turn the AC on this time.
