Question about 1998 Ford F150 Regular Cab
After i had my intake manifold changed on my 1998 Ford F-150 Regular cab 4x4 with a 4.6l v8, i noticed a light tick noise coming from the engine near the passanger side of the vehicle. Not too sure what it is...Their was a lot of smoke coming from the exhaust when i first got it back, then it sort of stopped smoking (still smokes a little)-(never smoked before).Their was barely any oil in it when i got it back. i put some in it then it seemed quieter. it kind of sounds like something hitting the fan every few seconds (tick-tick-stop-stop-stop-stop-tick-stop-stop-tick-tick) i hope it's not a lifter...but if it's not, what other possibilities could it be? any help would be very appreciated.
Sounds like when they did the intake,They drained the fluids but forgot to fill them back up and since the oil was near empty,I would say it's a lifter.But they can be reprimed or replaced a whole lot easier than some other possible causes.

How loud is the noise?the tick could be a sticky fuel injector.
the intake involves lifters and push rods....
put an oil additive to remove the varnish
some places it's all about how fast it can be done. heroes
at our shop,it is how can it be done once.
