Question about 1996 Ford F150 Regular Cab
I have a almost like a valve ticking noise but a little louder at the bottom of my oil pan, it almost sounds like a disiel. i cannot figure out what it is and i am missing on cylinder 5 i have good compression changed all of the wires plugs cap and rotor but cant figure out what the noise is.
You need to do a compression check on all cylinders i think you will find one that is low.
you say you have good compression what is the compression in each cyl?
also is this a 302 or 351?
