Then you probably won't have anything done on warranty
I wore out my welcome asking for a factory sealed unit. Not fun! I will keep you posted though.

Yea..maybe so. I would rather them just apply the 11-12 5.0 Tick TSB to it first before randomly guess what it is and replace random parts, as I think its exactly what mine is doing..

Just found out about Seafoam. My car just started having a tick after some gas from a gas station that's not my usual station. At least I hope that's what it is...

Was reading online and YouTubing seafoam and apparently it gets rid of ticks and stuff as well as bad gas (water, particles, bad octane).

Seems real easy to use. I'm gonna try it tomorrow and report. But I don't think I have the same tick as most of you and I won't be pouring it into my oil or suck it thru the vacuum line.

Yea let us know, I actually thought of it to as it works well with older cars...I also got gas from a station I normally don't use, at first thought it was bad gas or something. Yea don't put it in oil or crank case...just gas id say since our cars aren't very old...im interested...I already have a can at home.

By the way Dallasstang, what "Tick" do you have? Mine is from the driver side when warmed and its random not rhythmic at all. isn't constant but its still there, I guess its the igniter tick I have.

Alright. Its sorta like the sound of the fan or ac kicking on but even when both aren't turning on. I thought maybe it was slight knocking. It happens once a minute or so and when it ticks sometimes it'll tick twice in succession.

So I used Seafoam in the gas tank. At first 1/3 a bottle on a full tank of gas. It didnt seem to help so I poured the equivalent of half a bottle. Immediately nothing was different. I figured I need to drive it some so after 20-25 miles the ticking has become less frequent and not as loud.

I'll drive it more and give further reports. But it seems the engine is smoother now. Before the idle went a bit bobbing up and down but now its a bit smoother. Actually lot smoother.

Oh and the tick seems to come from the passenger side toward the mid/bottom basically the combustion chamber.

If after a half tank it doesn't improve I'll pour the remainder of the seafoam into the tank.

If after a full tank it doesn't improve I'll try to run the tank down to fumes, refuel with my normal station's gas and datalog.

Didn't wanna datalog at the moment because that'll require WOT. But I'll do it if it don't get better.

Is this the Ignitor Tick? I thought the Ignitor tick was called the Ignitor Tick because it sounds like someone in the engine trying to light up the BBQ?



Also, this only happens during the first 5-10 minutes of start-up on my car after it has been driven that day. Once the oil is fully warm it goes away, with a tick or two every minute. Does not happen fully cold.

Ticking sound

Non rhythmic loud ting while running. Louder then compressor kicking off and on which I can tell the difference.

Also does it with AC off. Sounds like exhaust pipe contracting but it's front of engine compartment. Not consistent with RPMs

Update: after 50 miles on Seafoam the ticking has become significantly less. Over like 3-5 minutes I heard only two ticks and they were very soft.

The tick does sound like the igniter tick. But I think everything is fine now.

The tick I have happens maybe once a minute but not quite as loud either. I tried recording it but the tick isn't very noticeable in the video.

I tried to google what an igniter tick is but no useful explanation of cause or solution. What is an igniter tick? Is it called igniter tick cuz it sounds like the igniter of a BBQ grill?

So some say an oil change caused it. Some say its been there since like day one. Have there been any catastrophic failure because of it? Seems a lot of people are running tunes and mods without much issue... I might have had this tick for a lot longer than a few days since the bad gas. The only reason I noticed the tick was because the idle was a bit off than normal so I idled the car a bit after getting the gas just to see if it was a temp hiccup or cuz of the gas. Then I noticed it tick.

Yeah been running Motorcraft 5-20 semi by the dealer. The dealer I goto charges $45 for the change.

Although I think I'm gonna do the crank and vacuum treatment in about 4000 miles. I just got my oil changed about a 1000 miles ago.

You might want to do the whole treatment. I have 39k miles now so I guess it might help more if I did the whole treatment. But I think I'm suppose to change out the oil soon after doing the oil treatment. So I'll wait a bit.

Good luck on your tick bossman. I don't think its a huge issue but man I hate weird noises from engines especially if its random as hell and like a good percent of owners have it but not all.

Okay cool, same as I have been doing the past 2 changes.


Oh ok, I only have 8,100 on mine. Yea I may do mine like that around 12k, and yes you're supposed to run it thru if you're going to change the oil in a day or so.


As for now ill prob pour it in and see what happens.

Thanks DallasStang you as well,


Yea see that exactly how mine is, just random and I cant stand it even tho its faint but it hasn't been there, seems it does go away with more driving as some ppl have noted already. Im sure it may not be from what ive read compared to other noises ive heard these car make.

New to this awesome forum but not to Mustangs.
Ive had a 99 GT,04GT, and a 06GT with multiple mods.
Just picked up my 2014 GT July 5th this summer.
Love it and the 5.0 motor. Only mod so far is BMR strut tower brace.
Didnt know about the ticking issue when I bought it.
At 2,800 miles I have no ticking what so ever and no oil usage either.

Yeah unfortunately for some people the tick can be a late onset issue. I didn't notice any ticking until just recently. And I don't think I would have really noticed it had it not been for the $30 of gas from a gas station that's not my usual station. It caused a lumpy idle so I let it idle for a bit and then I heard the tick.

I've checked for the tick every so often. And up to about 24k or so I stopped checking. That was last November and now I have a tick. Lol

Tick is worst:
1) About 10-500 miles after an oil change. Check after 1st/2nd oil changes.
2) My case, Drive the car til the oil is warm (to work).
3) Start the car 2-4 hours later (Lunch?/Break?).
4) After the CPU lowers the idle to the 700 range, you will here a tick like my video above.
5) If no ticks after 2nd oil change. YAY!!!! You got what you payed for!!!

The rest of us are not so lucky :/.
Probably my last 5.0 until I hear of a definite fix.

Anyone save their oil from the first oil change, get the tick, and then try putting original oil back.

Now Im worried about getting my first oil change.
Never known an oil change to be a bad thing.
The Manufacture date of my car was 6/14, so hey maybe they fixed it by then and arnt saying nothing about it, I hope

Update:
It appears mine is fixed! My random, ignitor-like tick was diagnosed as piston slap on No. 1 cylinder. They found the bore to be egg-shaped, 3x's tolerance.
They replaced block, crank, piston, rod, all bearings, all rings. Got it back today, and it's perfectly quiet.
I will update after the next oil change.
It is possible that Ford's tooling has a problem, and a lot of people have this. Try unplugging the injector on No. 1 and see if it stops.
Or, mine could be the only 1...

Wow. That is excellent fortune. Congratulations. You did have a really low mileage tick, to me that increases the likelihood of defect.

Sounds like you got a whole new motor basically.

Not to be a Debbie downer but everyone getting the tick doesn't start out with the tick at new. Logically this would mean the tick would come eventually if you were to get it. If that makes sense.

With that said. I wish you the best not to get it back.

I pushed for a new engine, but just parts. It kinda surprised me they didn't drop a factory assembled short block in it. I have the same pistons in 2-8. I believe wrist pins too.
Mine started about 2200 miles, or within a couple days after the 1st oil change. Not sure how it didn't tick new.

Not the answer I was hoping for. Happy to see you got fixed, but not very happy it took that to fix it. My Mazda6, 4 banger ticks all the time, but it is in the cat, not the motor. Was hoping it was something like that.
