Your truck only has plugs and oil and air cleaner. You have coil over plugs which you dont replace until one is faulty. You could get some MAF cleaner and clean the sensor in the air boot right after the air filter. You need a special torq to remove the sensor bolts and spray the wires in the sensor if they look dirty. Be careful not to break the wires. Being your truck has that many miles they could be brittle. I would be hesitant to add anything to quiet up the lifters. If you did and the lifters did quiet up I would do an oil service again to remove the stuff. With that many miles you could run into a problem of oil sludged and if you were to break a piece off you could clog an oil passage and cause further damage

Basic tune up consists of plugs, sometimes cap and rotor, fuel and air filter, PCV valve and filter....

Try Casterol high mileage blend. It has polymers that help seals and actually reduces oil consumption on vehicles that I have tested..

This oil is a semi synthetic...
How long does the noise continue? what does it sound like?

Oil soaked plug electrode and loud lifter tick


Oil fouled spark plug is caused by excessive oil entering the combustion chamber through worn rings and pistons, excessive clearance between valve guides and stems, or worn or loose bearings. Correct oil problem and replace plugs.

Adjust valves to correct tick and inspect stems at the same time.

Hope this helps Mike

My son has a 1994 Buick Skylark that is experiencing a ticking with lifters. How difficult are these to replace?..Does the head have to be removed to replace them?..Thanks


What engine?

If its a 3.1 liter try this first.

Get a can of Seafoam Motor Tune which is usually available anywhere that sells auto parts and sometimes walmart or target will also carry it in there automotive section.

With the engine cold and shut off add 1/2 of the bottle to the oil. Start the engine and let run until warm or until the lifter noise has gone away. If the lifter noise stops have the oil changed and add the other half of the bottle to the clean oil. If the noise does not stop it is not a lifter noise and lilley something more severe.

I have never had seafoam not fix this complaint on any GM V-6 or V-8!

I have a ticking sound when my engine is running, should I use a thicker oil?


No, absolutely not. The ticking you are hearing are the lifers starving for oil or they are out of adjustment. Using a heavier weight oil will just make it worse. You need to make sure you are using the correct weight oil. Your 2005 Ford F150 requires 6 quarts of 5w20 weight oil with filter change. If you are using this weight oil with a quality filter such as Motorcraft, Purolator, or Wix, then you may have carbon or dirt in the lifters. Purchase a can of Seafoam Engine Treatment. Add 1.5 Ounces to each quart of oil. That would be 9 ounces on your Ford. Add it directly to the engine oil. Drive the vehicle for 200 miles and then change oil & filter. If the ticking is still there, add another 9 ounces to the oil and drive it until the next oil change or until the tick goes away. Then change the oil/filter again. You can purchase Seafoam at most auto parts stores. Walmart has it in some stores, and man marine supply stores have it. It is a wonderful product that I have used for years. Works great as a fuel injector cleaner and fuel stabilizer when added to the fuel tank. http://www.seafoamsales.com/how-to-use-our-products.html

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.

Rapping/ticking sound in my 2001 Chevy tracker engine.


does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should
