That's exactly what it sounds like on my car, and I only have 2000 miles on it and I have not even changed the oil yet. I don't think the dealers and Ford will be so easy with giving us a new motor.

The service Tech at my dealership told me the XL-17 friction modifier stuff isn't designed to be a fix. It is supposed to be a tool to help find problems. He said it's like $45/bottle, and was worried about the cost. I told him it's a lot cheaper than replacing my engine. One item to note... I changed from 5-20w to 5-30w last change. Seems worse. So, it's quieter with super-thin oil??? Hmmmm.....

Has anyone reported problems with the engine related to the ticking, besides it just being annoying? I'm just worry about what can happen in the long run.

The video I posted was my car when the dealership changed my oil on the second of July.

Just dropped my car off at the dealership this morning, bad service aside already, let's see what they say. My car has just over 2000 miles and I did not even change the oil yet and it has the ticking.

Apparently I can't post my video via iphone app. But the video makes the sound a little different than in person but watching yours and mine back to back it's the SAME EXACT noise.... It may be harmless but I didn't drop over 35k and 7 years of my life to listen to this thing tick. It drives me nuts!

Hey guys... Need your help. My dealer thinks this tick is lifters. I haven't been around very many vehicles with noisy lifters. The few I have been around were consistent and in concert with RPM. This tick is random. Do you think it's lifters?

In my experience, lifter tick is generally consistent and in line with engine RPM but if they're thinking it is at least they're not telling you it's normal.

If it is or its not doesn't matter. Let them fix it. Read up on google you will see that there've been instances if it is a lifter problem Ford authorized a whole new motor although the examples were majorly new cars with only a few thousand miles. Not sure if you have like 20-30k miles will they give you a new engine.

Either way... Let them fix it before you're warranty expires. What are you waiting for second guessing them them? For the engine to get worse, for the warranty to expire, or a fairy to magically make the sound go away? Lol

Lol! I'm at 6,000 miles. If it needs it, I suppose... But I'm not convinced they are anywhere near the right thing. Still haven't gotten back to me with any solutions. In fact, I got their diagnoses because I interrupted their lunch break by showing up. Won't even call me after 2 days. Let's see what their solution is.

I have a rattle in 5th gear above 2k rpm. Its the shifter. I can put my hand on the knob and it stops. I can upshift and it stops. I have 10k miles and might take it in on the warranty and see if they'll pull it out and let me hand them a better one to put back in in its place.

The dealer told me they think it may be the lifters too after having the "specialist" check it out, but they are performing other tests too.

Whatever it is, I will let them fix it, and if the tick keeps coming back, I will bring the car back in till it's fixed, Ford gives me a new engine, or I can lemon it.

Well, a lot of people have this problem, they got ac compressor belt replaced, timing chain parts replaced, other parts replaced, and it still comes back. I feel uncomfortable letting them take apart the engine, but that sound just isn't normal when other people have a perfectly fine 5.0.

I'm just worry about what it may do to engine performance or life, I really am enjoying my Mustang and I wanted to keep it for a long time, but I don't know now. I will keep it as long as it has a warranty.

I've been looking for a form about this noise... I have a 14 v6 and I have a ticking noise in idle too. But I can only hear it when my hood is open.

So day 3 at the dealer: they concluded the sound is lifters on cylinder 5-6. They actually began replacing them without letting me know (yes, they got an earful...). Parts didn't come in, so hopefully Monday they will complete the work. I got past the desk and spent time with the lead tech. He seemed pretty sharp and pretty convincing this was the issue. More to come once it's put together.

You gave them an earful when they're trying to help you fix your car? Clarification... While they're fixing your car?

Ever heard of never criticizing or yelling at the waiter until you've paid your bill and about to tip? Not to say you can't cordially ask for them to notify you first before they do anything additional or next time or whatever but the tech and grease monkeys are performing open heart surgery on your car after all. Lol

My techs love me. Why? I demand stuff. I'm OCD about stuff on my car. But I'm fair and even keeled.

One time they washed my car even though I asked them not to. I was really upset cuz they put scratches and swirl marks all over. I brought it to my advisor's attention and explained that i'm letting him know that there's something wrong with their washing procedure if its scratching the cars like this. That is If I was as anal as I was ten years or even five years ago that I would blow my roof off. But this I'm letting him know so that he can save himself and the company from other more anal customers.

He waxed my car, buffed and shined it and I got a free oil change next time round.

3 days no communication. Yes. I explained my dissatisfaction that they have not called me at all. No updates. I specifically told them to call before doing any work. Why are we doing this right now? The thread is about the ticking sound... Not the drama of me telling the dealer they should have called me. Thanks for you TECHNICAL input. Update to follow when lifters are replaced.

I am glad too. Their communication has been poor, but they are doing excellent as far as admitting the car has a problem, and going at fixing it. I'm totally stock still, not even new exhaust.
The tech has seen a couple of ticking 5.0's. He said some are actually piston slap when the engine is cold - said it's normal (YIKES!!) But he is convinced mine is lifters on 5 and 6. He hasn't seen enough to lump them all together as a common problem.

I've got high flow cats with no tune and CEL on so have been cautious to take it into stealership.
I get a tinkling that sounds like its in the CatCon on the drivers side till it warms up. Tinkling like a heat shield or other slight exhaust noise. I dont think we have heat shields on our Cats do we?

There are heat shields above the lower portion of the exhaust. But not on the physical cats no.

Hi JD, I am curious about the year of your GT with 6000, and if you know the build date. Its on the drivers side door sill sticker, but its at the dealer right now so you can't look.

Edit: I found its is a 2014 in past post, when you get it back can you tell me the build date?

Mine is a '14. I believe the build date is Nov or Dec of '13. But it's still at the shop. I can check for sure tomorrow.
Replacing lifters did not help. Same sound. Next step is tearing the engine down. They admitted this is headed toward a whole new engine. I asked them to hold off on that. They agreed to let me drive it, and proceed with a tear-down in the future. I'm going to get something in writing if they will - in case the guy I'm working with disappears. They had to put covers back on and change the oil. Should have it back tomorrow.

Lifters did not change the tick. My options are to let them tear it apart, with no diagnoses, or drive it. I'm opting to drive it while I think about it. They admitted it was heading toward a new motor. I don't really want a new motor. I like original 😢
Several owners have found the tick to miraculously cute itself with miles. Another option - loud exhaust may "cure" it. Not sure if I should let the dealer tear it apart without a destination in mind or not.

I would go with new motor, only generally offered during very new ownership. Unless you have such a special COPO ordered car that will be a concourse queen someday? New motor vs "The Tick". New motor would get my vote, if they already tore into it, its not going away without coming back when your older and pissed about it.

Is the Car Fox really intimidating us that we wont let them change a motor now and live with bad things? That's the reverse of what it should be doing.

I just got my car back from the dealer after sitting there for a week, and now they claim the noise is "normal." First they acknowledge there was ticking, then they say it was the lifters or fuel injectors, they said they performed different diagnosis, had their "specialist" inspect it, and talking to the Ford hotline they decided it was normal on Mustangs and it should go away after 7,000 miles. I do not know whose a$$ they pull that explanation from, I don't know what to do, take it to another dealer?
