WHY DOES MY 5.4 TRITON ENGINE SOUND LIKE A DIESEL?


i have seen this alot with fords modular engines, not to say for sure in your case but usually it is the timing chain will jump causing it to sound just like a diesal, hook up a obd2 scanner and check for codes. if there related to timing then theres your problem. i would suggest letting a shop tackle this job...very advanced and not for your typical do it yourselfer

Most likely a lifter slow to accept oil and "pump up". This is ometimes caused by possibly need of oil change or wear to the internal parts of lifter.

The egr vavle could be on the verge of freezing up. When it does the check engine light will come on. However, I think it may be a sticky valve or lifter. Try changing the oil and replacing one quart of oil with one quart of Marvel Mystery oil. This will help lubricate better. I do this in my 2000 Expedition and have never had any problems with it. CD2 is a product designed for sticking valves and lifters if you would rather go that route. I have used it too on an old mustang but not in my expedition.

The engine valves are rattling like a desiel, on my 1998 ford explorer 5.0. How can i solve this?


This engine has hydraulic lifters that depend on clean oil with good oil pressure. Check the oil dipstick for proper level. Try an oil additive that is supposed to help sticky lifters. If no help, you may need to replace the entire lifter set which requires removing the intake manifold and removing the rocker arm assemblies to get to the lifters. If the engine has high miles, you may need other repairs as well. Good luck!

Tapping motor in my 2004 expedition


It may have hydraulic lifter froze up. You might try
a good oil additive in oil. If the engine has a lot of miles it may need new cam & lifters

Looking for the number 5 cylinder


I believe that would be the drivers front cylinder closest to the radiator. At one time, I think on the 1999 model of that same vehicle there was a problem with a radiator hose leaking and dripping on the coilpak and #5 plugwire. Might be same thing.

You can take it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan to verify a misfire.

How to stop lifter and or vavle noise in car motor?


Generally if it's being caused by wear you can replace what's worn...rocker arm, lifter , cam etc. If noise just began, sometimes an additive like marvel oil will clean out the lifter and make it quiet, but it takes time...It took time to get that way.Lucas additive sometimes also works for that. But, as I said, if it's from wear you need to replace the worn parts.
