Question about 2004 Ford F150
But like others here, my lifters make the truck sound like a diesel...Ill try the oil....
THESE ARE THE CONCERNS AND MOSTLY CAUSED BY NON FL820 OIL FILTER AND PROPER OIL 5/20. THESE TRUCKS ARE VERY SENSATIVE TO AFTERMARKET OIL FILTERS,AFTERMARKET OILFILTERS PLUG OIL GALLEY'S BECAUSE OF DETERIORATION. FL820 MOTORCRAFT FILTER ALSO HAS A ANTI DRAINBACK DIAPHRAM IN OIL FILTER TO KEEP OIL IN TOP END FOR COLD STARTS SO ENGINE WONT BE OILSTARVED ON CODSTARTS. PROBLEMS IT CAUSED IS CAM PHASERS,IF ENGINE CAN REV TO 2000RPM AND NOISE IS GONE IT'S CAM PHASERS. LASH ADJUSTERS ALSO GET DAMAGED AND CAN CAUSE A TICK NOISE LOUDER THAN INJECTORS. ENGINE IS NOT REALLY COMPROMISED AT THIS POINT BUT IT'S AN ANNOYANCE. IF WANT IT FIXED GO TO THE DEALER,THEY ARE WELL INFORMED WITH THIS CONCERN ON 5.4 3V. NOT TO CHANCE AFTERMARKET SHOP CHALLENGING THIS,PARTS FOR THESE ENGINES ARE BUILD DATE SPECIFIC AND DON'T WORK WELL WITH AFTERMARKET PARTS. SEE A VERY REPUTABLE DEALER FOR ANY CONCERNS PLEASE.
