Hey Nick,

Welcome to the site.

Right at the top of this forum is a really large and detailed thread regarding the “tick” for 2018/19’s:”-is-a-normal-characteristic.116925/

Definitely read it; you’re gong to see that many S550 18/19 owners don’t have any issues regarding anything major (catastrophic) with the Gen3 Coyote. Early on there were a few issues, but since that thread was posted, there are really more positives than negatives. Also remember your only getting a sampling from just this site, not all 18/19 5.0 owners are members of this site.... so take that into consideration that thousands of 18/19’s have been sold and are running just fine (even being abused at nationwide and worldwide tracks).

Engine Tick

I have the same 2004 3.8l and have noticed a tick at idle. If I rev the engine a bit, the tick goes away temporarily but returns when the engine returns to idle. I added 6 oz of seafoam to the crankcase a few days ago. It's a little premature to tell and could be wishful thinking, but it sounds like the tick is starting to subside. It seems like the tick drops off earlier when I start to rev the engine and it seems to return a second or two later then it did before when returning to idle. The car is driven only 6 to 10 miles a day but I plan to keep the oil/seafoam mix is there for at least 100 miles, then change the oil and filter. My understanding with the type of lifters in this engine, which I believe are the hydraulic roller type, they can get gummed up and not lift like they should. This would explain why I'm not hearing the tick when revving the engine, since oil pressure is built up and pushing enough oil the restricted passage to do its job of lift. When back at idle, lower pressure and no or not enough lift. Anyhow, I'll try to update to share the results over time.

Help Us Figure Out What's Causing This Strange 'Typewriter Tick' in the New Ford Mustang Engines

Image for article titled Help Us Figure Out What's Causing This Strange 'Typewriter Tick' in the New Ford Mustang Engines

A strange problem has been plaguing 2018/19 Ford Mustang GTs—when the engine is running, a strange non-rhythmic ticking sound can be heard coming from the engine. We want you to help us figure out what it is.

We recently got a tip from a fella named Dave who is looking for help. After discovering a ticking noise in his two-day-old Mustang—which Ford calls a “Typewriter Tick”—he tried to figure out what it was. Nothing has been particularly helpful. We’ll let him tell you his story in his own words:

I recently bought a new 2018 Mustang GT (build date 4/18) in December of 2018. The second day I had my car (12/22/18) I noticed a non-rhythmic knocking/ticking sound coming from under the engine, loud enough I could hear it from 10 ft away. Very similar sound to a mechanical Typewriter. At the time, the car had maybe 100 miles on the odometer and I had the car since 72 mile mark. After ignoring the sound for a week, I eventually did a YouTube search and found tons of other 2018 owners with this same exact issue. Many have had engine components like CAM phasers, CAMS, lifters, and rockers replaced, which has not eliminated the noise. Ford has also been replacing short block and long blocks, which does apparently fix the issue but diminishes the car value greatly due to it showing on a CarFax as an engine replacement. Ford knows about the issue and references it under “Typewriter Tick”.

My car has been at the dealer for several days. I was told they hear the noise and are waiting on Ford to step in.

Here’s his video:

You can check out the abundance of YouTube videos for yourselves—there are plenty of folks out there trying to figure out what’s wrong and some who even claim to have solved the issue, but nothing has been officially established by Ford. Folks are hoping that the tick will, at the very least, be acknowledged by the company—some are even asking for recalls.

We’ve reached out to Ford for comment, but at this time haven’t heard back. We’ll keep you updated if we hear anything.

So, we’re calling in extra hands: What the hell is that noise?

Engine tick mustang

Over the past week on the way, I managed to make friends with Vladimir a little, when he stopped acting out of himself A homeless woman. Climbs onto a pedestal, - And only now I understand why the platform was designed, a lady of small stature, and when the trash can is less than half loaded, digging in it becomes impossible.

The homeless woman on the building looks stable, and I can't believe my eyes, the structure seemed very shaky, so much so that even a small gust of wind could overwhelm her, but the lady lowers her torso into the container, while with her small legs she stands on a pedestal near the garbage can.

A homeless man asks passers-by to smoke, he is rude and is not given a smoke, he looks at the floor, and I can imagine how ashamed he is in front of a lady and I become interested, - How often did he endure humiliation. Which one was the scariest.
