Subject: Another Tick Tick Tick Question


Hi folks,
    My '89 6 banger has been parked since Tuesday because of a ticking
sound.  It's to "tinny" to be a knock, the closest I can come is to say
it sounds like a pcv valve when you give it a shake, or a bb in a beer
can (the old steel cans).  This occurs at briefly at start-up, when I
"goose" it, and a few times when I depressed the clutch.  It's
definitely in time with rpm. All I had to go on was that it seemed to be
related to the engine leaning against the mounts with load, but after
the previous post on this topic I'm now going to look at the exhaust
manifolds this weekend.  Will an exhaust leak loud enough to hear in the
cab be detected with a strip of paper, or by blowing smoke in search of
an exhaust pulse?  Can I burn a valve by driving while this condition
persists?  Any tips appreciated.

Thanks to all,

Mike Luks
1989 F150

This would be pre-igniton or advanced timing. This could destroy the piston
top after continued abuse.

If its a singular tick, it probably is an exhaust manifold leak. Have you
tried re-torqueing the studs? Usually a bit of discoloration around the
manifold port is a sign of the leak. It will blacken the area around the
leak.

Assuming it is an exhaust leak, you won't burn a valve any time soon. You
need to ascertain the problem though.

Are you EFI or carb? I've got an EFI 302 that plays a little injector song
for all to hear,
tick ta tick ta tick tick tick... It became more noticiblw when I went to a
K&N cone. The stock air box was muffling the sound.


Good luck.

Bob

Hi all,   I have a possible overheating problem with my 85 F-250 460.  For
no apparent reason, the temperature gauge will suddenly climb into the top
ofthe "normal" range.  It will stay that way for anywhere from 10 seconds to
several minutes.  Usually when I change my driving habits (i.e. speed up or
slow down), it will finally drift back down into the middle of "normal."   I
suspect that the gauge might actually be at fault.  The wire that appears to
go to the cooling sensor (pops over a stud in the top of the block?) has
rubbed away against a bracket and now is holding on by only a couple of
strands.  My question is, is there another way I can verify the operation of
the sensor?  Can I maybe stick a candy thermometer somewhere in the cooling
system to get an idea of whether the gauge is accurate?   Thanks.   Tim

Hi all,

Are the searchable archives still up?  I can't seem to find them on the site
or in the FAQ.

Thanks.
