2000 F250 Ticking/Knocking Noise

I have a 2000 F250 5.4 that has a ticking/knocking noise. After about 30-60 seconds of first starting the truck in the morning, the ticking/knocking noise appears. It sounds like its coming through the exhaust system and seems to be louder under the front passenger side wheel well. When I rev the engine up, it seems to go away. Does this engine have a cam phaser? Could it be timing chain slap? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!

I too have the same sound in my 01 CCSB 5.4. Goes away after awhile. I do know that our yrs don't have cam phasers. My mechanic said that one of the rods has become mis-shaped and after the oil pressure builds up the noise goes away. Told me I have 10,000-50,000 miles before the motor is toast. Anyone else have this issue?

Maybe a bad exhaust manifold? Mine ticked like crazy at startup (2004 2v 5.4L). I replaced my muffler that had a hole and it became apparent that I had a leak.

I could see a broken stud and feel the leak.

It's not a ticking it's a knocking sound.

Find a new mechanic. I'm willing to bet it's a common exhaust leak, the studs break off and once the engine warms up the sound lessens.

Piston slap is common in these engines at a higher mileage if the cooling system wasn't maintained. That's how my V10 was retired, two burned pistons and the truck was overheated at one point causing the damage.

I've got 219,000 miles but like I've said not a ticking noise definitely a knocking/clacking noise.

I just did get this truck a few months ago, the odo says 190K on it but I think it was rolled back a few years ago so it probably has 250K+ on it according to past title searches.

Mine does the same for about 10 minutes when I first start it up, it will just stop then come back then stop like something is adjusting in the engine, it will eventually go away once it is warmed up. I have thought about going with a thicker oil to see if that helps.

What do you mean rolled back? Is it not digital?

Since I'm nearing the 200k mile mark quickly, I recently switched to running 5quarts 5w20 conventional and 1 quart hyper lube. Seems to be doing pretty good, could just be all in my head though HA!

I have an old vid of my truck when it had the piston slap, I will post it once I get home.

Ahh learn something new everyday. There are quite a few small differences between 1999-2004.

One thing I meant to add about the oil is that from what I have read thicker may not be better. I ran Rotella 15w40 in my AMC 360 in my wagoneer to bring oil pressure up (before I rebuilt the pump), but these over head cam V8s are a different animal. So I'd stick to stock viscosity and maybe an additive if you like.
