I couldn't be happier with them. Especially after my experience at Sheehy Ford of Ashland. I sent the owner, Eli Patrick, an e-mail letting him know how happy I was with how I was treated.

It hasn't always been that loud, it just got that way since around fall. I don't drive the truck a lot, which may add to it. I bought it new in Dec 2013 and I have 43k.
I've started paying more attention to it, and on my truck it seems that I don't get the ticking when engine is cold, only when it's hot. This leads me to believe that it could in fact be an oil issue.

I noticed that on the Mustang 5.0 with performance package, they spec 5W50 oil. I'm wondering if a 5W30 or 5W40 would actually be healthier for these engines long term instead of the 5W20 which is like water on a summer day. Hmmm....

Well, now, this thread caught my attention. My 2012 5.0 has in service date of 4/12/12, but only has 36,000 miles. No unusual noises now. It does not get much use in the winter. It is 2WD, and I hate salt. Besides, I have 2000 3.0 DOHC Taurus with 200,000 miles for that.

If nothing else, I will inquire about extended warranty. BTW, found this thread only because I want to learn about towing....

HELP PLEASE!
Is there an hidden warranty on this issue? My 2012 5.0 L truck is at 55,000 miles and has this problem. My power train warranty ran out last July.
I have had my truck since new and two Ford dealerships have diagnosed this as bottom engine noise. One has said already to put in a new engine.
Any advice I really could use.

Hi Mike, I have not heard of anyone being able to get a replacement engine out of warranty. Could try and reach out to ford service and see if they can be any help. Phone number: 800-392-FORD. Not​​​t sure how helpful they will be but could be worth a shot .

Thanks, I know it's a long shot. It's my only vehicle and $9000 I don't have.
Might just have to run it and hope for the best.
Had it re-checked yesterday, compression, timing everything is running perfect.
I figured a piston problem or miss shaped cylinder would throw something off.

Here's a clip of mine with 125,000 miles on the clock:

Thats what my truck sounds like now. I found out that my sound was coming from a loose heat shield. Finally found it and fixed the problem. Glad it wasn't anything serious..

Hey Guys/Gals. Is this knock/tick a ongoing thing? My 2016 F150 Lariat 5.0 with just over 72,000 K is in the shop right now due to a knock at idle and slight misfire. Worried as I'm past warranty. Man I hope this doesn't get expensive, my last truck was a 2006 5.4 and she cost me a mad bundle of cash fixing the timing chain and phaser issues. The knock is very apparent now that the weather is warm and after a trip towing a dead Civic through the mountains is when the misfire began.

BTW: Mine is 90% highway use and we tow a 24 Ft boat often from May-October. I've always ran synthetic oil and its changed well before recommended intervals. Trucks been a great performer otherwise, my only real disappointment has been fuel mileage. I also have a aftermarket Borla exhaust system, Bone stock otherwise.

Looks like you're in Canada? Your powertrain warranty should be to 100K if I'm not mistaken. Have you taken it to your local dealer?

I'm thinking you can get this fixed at no cost.
