Loud Ticking sound 2004 F150

My truck has always made a ticking sound but it has been getting louder lately. Even when idling it makes a ticking sound. It gets really loud when you accelerate. It also just recently has started making a loud almost screaming noise when accelerating. If anyone knows what is going on with it that would be great! Please help!

    Where is the tick coming from? Engine? Tires? Transmission? Rock in the hub cap :) If it's coming from the engine...Valves may need adjusting...May be low on oil...needs an oil change...Screaming may be caused by a bad or loose belt...Ticking may also come from the belt if it is frayed and is slapping against something as the engine is running.

Check the Alternator / Powersteering belts .
One of them will be damaged and loose.
Hope this helps.

Ticking sound engine


Sounds like you need to have your valves checked and adjusted. Do it sooner rather than later. This can eventually cause serious damage to the engine if not taken care of.

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.

Ticking noice gets louder when warm


If it goes tick, tick, tick, you might be low on oil or your lifters may be pecking. It is usually a sign of low oil or engine damage in the block. Check your fluid first. It may be a quart or two low. If not, it will need fixed eventually. That is up to you.

Ticking/reluctant start 05 f-150 5.4L


Ok... I'd do this. Drain all the oil from the crankcase, and refill with the EXACT amount of oil as specified by the makers handbook. Now withdraw the dipstick and note the level the oil now comes to.Mark this point with a scriber or file and always top up only to this level. Now we know the oil level is correct. If the noise still persists, get a can of Winns Tune-up and follow the diections. This will flush your valve lifter and make them operate as they should. If this doesn't fix it, you may have mechanical problem inside the engine.

Engine knocking, valve ticking loud in engine, when idle or drivi


Make sure the oil level is good, and have the oil pressure check by a garage or someone who can, by using a external gauge to see what the actual oil press is. Low oil pressure will give you the ticking, start there.
