Question about 2004 Ford F150

1 Answer

When I accelerate at a significant rate in my 2004 F-150, there is a ticking noise that occurs until I let off the accelerator. This also occurs when I accelerate up an incline. However, if I accelerate at a normal rate, there is no noise. What could this possibly be?

It sounds like an exhaust leak where the exhaust manifold meets the cylinder head. V-8? The studs have a tendency rust off and the manifold is not held tight anymore. Bummer!!

Ticking noise under hood/ possibly tranny


First thing I would check is the oil level. Sounds like a upper engine (valvetrain) problem. If oil level is ok then you will need to pull valve cover to inspect for proper upper oiling.

Clunking/ticking noise during acceleration in 3rd and 4th gears


This sounds on the base of it to be pre ignition, if so the moment you take the foot off the gas it goes? The cure is to retard the ignition timing slightly, have you recently changed your octane of fuel? this will also cause this?
The noise is caused by the expansion of the compressed gases expanding before the piston reaches top dead centre causing the piston to \'rattle\' left unchecked will cause permanent damage and engine failure

1995 saturn sl2 ticking noise when accelerating


these are known for carbon build up on the valves that cause several problems.this could be the problem as the carbon can cause the valves to stick a bit in the valve guides while its running and show up as a ticking noise with the gas applied.have the top end service done which cleans the fuel system injectors and any carbon build up on the back of the valves.if this gets bad enough it can cause the cam holders to break locking up the motor if the piston hits the valve.another thing to check is oil pressure and the lifters may be worn to the point that they need replacing.check the cam lobes as well if worn these can cause a ticking noise on acceleration.

Clicking noise when accelerating


Hello, this noise may be a stuck or warped lifter. This also can be a warped wrist pin or a thrown bearing. I would check and see if your oil is sludgy for a lack of better words for starters. I would check your oil level as well. Your valve lash can be off as well and this can be thrown off by this causing the ticking noise you are talking about. Is the noise coming from the top or the bottom of the motor. I hope this helps. Thank You.

Ticking noise


A small exhaust leak can sound like a ticking noise during acceleration and can get better or worse as the system heats up. I had a similar problem when the engine was cold that was solved with a new exhaust manifold gasket.

I believe you may be referring to 'pinging', Try a tank of premium gas and see if it stops. Check your timing, and when was it last tuned? Let me know what u find. countrycurt0

Rear acceleration noise


Try rear wheel bearings. The cause a roaring noise that increases with acceleration. Sounds very similar to loud road noise.
