Re: 2008 mustang v6 3000 miles on it
I would try to find another car to compare it with to see if it is a normal noise. Don't compare apples to oranges. Make sure to compare with same year, engine, etc. If you have the concern documented while the car is still under warranty, if something should happen later down the road (out of warranty) you'll have a good case to get it repaired under factory warranty. Good Luck

Not sure if there is a question here or not. If the pressure is always below 40 and you are hearing engine noise, chances are the oil pressure really is low. You could replace the sending unit or use a mechanical gauge to verify.
For most vehicles it usually means a lifter out of adjustment, I have actually heard a timing belt do this as it began to fail (if your vehicle has over 90 thousand miles) Both items would require a visit to the auto repair shop. I hope this is useful.
Sounds like you are describing lifter noise. Go to the car store and buy a pint of Berrymen's Chemtool. Next time the engine is cold, pour the Chemtool into the engine oil. Do your normal driving for the next few days or weeks until you have 150-200 miles (none of them should be highway miles) on the engine, then have the oil changed. Drive for 2000-3000 miles, and do the same thing all over again. Repeat this a couple of times. If the lifter loosens up, your good to go. If it doesn't, then it will have to be repaired by tearing into the engine.
08? park in in the ford service driveway in front of the serve manager and leave it running. This is definately a warrentee issue. It sounds to be a sensor malfunction.which is part of emmidions which they should really deal with. Sorry.
I don't know how loud the noise is, but its weird that you mention 50 mph. At that speed or above you are keep a constant rpm level. I say this because it might just be your air box loose and the sound of the intake air is making it. A 2008 truck should not have any major problem. Sometimes an alternator will sing or whine but never heard anyone say something is whistling. One other thing is sometimes for some reason ive heard a noise like that coming from the speakers of my car that goes up and down with the speed of the motor, but that was when I was tinkering with speakers and sub outs and amps. Thats all I can think of.
It sounds like the lifters are still sticking. Change your oil/filter then after 500 miles change it again. Since motor oil has a mild detergents, a couple of changes should hopefully remove any buildup from around the lifters. Do not use "motor flush". Even though your engine is fairly new, it may remove too much buildup and flush it onto your crankshaft bearings. You may try some marvel mystery oil also and I've heard seafoam does a good job, if you can find it. Mine started ticking after using one of the super thick oil additives. I'm still trying to flush that stuff out.
