    Does the ticking get faster with speed of the engine? If it does, there's a bad valve lifter.

Look closer and check the pipe with the vehicle running. Look for black carbon trails at connections as these will alert you to an exhaust leak. Connections should be tight and clean all the way around the connection.

I have a 1999 5.4 f150 4x4 loud knocking started on passanger side also guages all pinned and bounced around truck runs rough and stalls what could it be


it sounds like a critical internal failure is eminent . if the oil pressure is ok,it could be a bent or broken valve as the exhaust leak can let the valves cool to fast and warp. however it sounds more critical than that. do a compression test on that side and see if the #'s are consistent.

I got a 2005 Chevy silverado and it's got a ticking sound coming from the engine no check engine light so don't know really where to start looking for what's wrong can you please give me some ideas on...


Check oil level and color. It could be a sticking hydraulic lifter. If oil is low or dirty, change it and the filter. Could also be a loose connecting rod (not good) if it's a loud tap. There are other possibilities but stay with the oil check.

Why is my engine making a ticking sound?


If there is no noise in the engine at idle but when you drive off then it is the movement that i9s causing the ticking sound. If you have a front wheel drive vehicle check the cv joints for wear or check u-joints for dry and worn on the tail shaft.

1983 f150 with 351 windsor. Recent problem of bogging down when climbing moderate hills. Also sounds of ticking noise, lifters or manifolds leak? Any help much appreciated.


A leaking exhaust manifold could make a ticking noise. So could a lifter or valve. The exhaust noise would be louder under load.
If the carb is running too lean, or you have a vac leak, the lean fuel mixture could make the exhaust leak worse, and cause the loss of power.

I have a 2003 f150 with the 5.4 that has a loud tick and intermitantly have no oil pressure. ???


The loud tick is the hydraulic cam followers bleeding down from no oil pressure. If you continue to drive the truck the engine will be destroyed, have it fixed ASAP!
