2007 Fusion V6 engine clicking?

So I was sitting in a drive through earlier today and noticed that my engine was making a clicking noise, I thought maybe it was the car behind me so I shut my car off and the sound stopped. Turned it back on and there it was again. Anyone on here with a V6 Fusion have the same noise? Or if anyone on here that knows about the 3.0L V6 could help that would be awesome.

Might be your injectors. I have the same 24V 3.0L in my Taurus and it's an awesome engine. 110,000 trouble free miles.

do you have a warranty? If so I would have it checked.

Nahh I'm out of warranty but I started it again earlier after it had been sitting for a little while and it didn't make the clicking noise. So I'm not sure what the deal is. I suppose I could take it to the dealership since there isn't really any local mechanic that I trust but I can only imagine how much the dealership would charge me. Ugh I get sick just thinking about it.

This article supersedes TSB 07-13-10 to add a production fix date.

ISSUE
Some 2005-2007 Five Hundred, Freestyle, Montego, and 2006-2007 Fusion, Milan, 2006 Zephyr, 2006-2008 Escape and Mariner vehicles built 1/17/2006 thru 5/31/2007, equipped with the 3.0L 4V Duratec engine with exhaust camshaft driven water pumps may exhibit a ticking noise from the left bank cylinder head with the engine at normal operating temperature.

ACTION
Refer to the following Service Procedure to identify and resolve the engine ticking noise.

SERVICE PROCEDURE







To diagnose, with the engine running and warm (normal operation temperature), using a mechanic's stethoscope, determine if ticking noise is coming from the left hand exhaust camshaft at cylinder number 6 (Figure 1). If ticking noise can be verified, refer to the following Service Procedure.

For 2008 Escape and Mariner, check the date on the LH cam cover engine label. If the engine build date is 5/16/2007 or before, refer to the following to identify and resolve the engine ticking noise. For engines built after this date, this procedure does not apply; refer to Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 303-00.

For 2007 Fusion and Milan check the date on the front cover engine label. If the engine build date is 5/9/2007 or before, refer to the following to identify and resolve the engine ticking noise. For engines built after this date, this procedure does not apply; Refer to WSM, Section 303-00.

1. Remove the left hand camshaft cover. Refer to WSM, Section 303-01 of the appropriate manual.

2. Rotate the engine clockwise until the cylinder number 6 exhaust cam lobes are pointing up and the valves are fully closed.

3. Remove all left hand exhaust cam caps individually and reinstall them finger tight.








4. Torque bolts in sequence as shown in Figure 2, to 72 lb-in (8 N.m) excluding cam cap number 4L camshaft cap.








5. Using a screw driver positioned on each side of the top of cam cap number 4L (Figure 3), apply hand pressure and shift cam cap number 4L toward the exhaust side of the cylinder head.

6. While holding cam cap number 4L in the shifted position, torque the fastener number 9 (inboard) first, to 72 lb-in (8 N.m) then torque fastener number 10. (Figure 3)

7. Install the left hand camshaft cover. Refer to appropriate WSM, Section 303-01.

8. Fully warm the engine to verify the repair.

Thanks Phinxter, I feel a better knowing that this is a known issue. Although the procedure for fixing it kinda freaks me out. With TSB's you still have to pay for everything right? If so I wonder how much it will end up being to have this fixed.

If you go to a dealership and explain the issue, they should fix it for free, despite the vehicle being out of warranty (given there is a TSB on it)

well first your engine must meet the criteria. For me it looks rather simple to fix, my post didn't include the pics but I can send them to you if you want to try fixing it yourself. Yes if your out of warranty you got to pay for it but that is up to your dealer, I'll admit I aint no Ford tech so I have no idea how they handle something like this. Warranty time is 1.2 hrs but they may want to charge a diagnostic fee on top of that and even increase the repair time maybe. I would guess maybe 2 Benjamins at most.
