Default Ticking sounds on my 2012 mustang 5.0 after first oil change 1,000 miles

I've got a ticking sound at idle and when I rev between 1600 to 2000 it makes a ticking sound, the rev tick sometimes works and sometimes doesn't go faster with an increase and decrease with rpm, the car is a 2012 mustang gt auto.

Hi 2007VortechGT,

Please make an appointment with your dealer and PM me with your VIN, dealer, mileage, full name, and best daytime number so I can get this escalated to the Customer Service Manager for your area.

Although, I would argue that the wheel well noise is "common" and not "normal."

A big part of the tick phenomenon is that everyone assumes we're talking about the same noise. Then, the original complaint gets lost in the discussion and loses credibility.

If there's any doubt about the noise for which I started this thread, I ended up with a new engine and a fat settlement check when it all played out
My '11 5.0 has been at my dealer since the 2nd of this month. I took it in for the tick that comes in around 800-2k rpm's and is not there at idle. They've replaced rollers, rockers and all sorts of other things. Today I was told they were tightening the cam bolts and doing some other things. I almost forgot I owned a new 5.0 Mustang since the dealer has had it for a month now. I was updated today and it doesn't sound like anything they are doing is stopping the tick...I'm willing to bet in the next few days they're going to tell me the motor has to be replaced...

If you wouldn't mind please PM me with the info on how you worked out that settlement check and other details on your situation. Thanks

My name is Chris Hester and I'm CEO of ProTec Lubricants. I noticed several posts concerning our XL-17 lubricants on this forum and feel I need to provide some clarity.

First, ProTec does not manufacture the product with the Ford brand label. I'm not sure who does, but it is not the same as ProTec XL-17. The ProTec XL-17 Anti-Friction Metal Treatment is made for industrial machinery for the automotive industry. Most of the major automotive manufacturers use it in their production machinery.

Now, we do make a similar lubricant for automotive engines called Anti-Friction Metal Treatment. It's not a mystery lube as some here have labeled it. We've been in business since 1980 and our products are proven. However, my point here is not to sell you our product but to provide clarity on the XL-17 questions. The Ford branded product is completely different from the ProTec. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Thanks for your time. I have enjoyed reading your forum.

Sincerely,
Chris Hester

My sympathies for all those enduring this. Really sucks to be told all is fine when you know it is not. I have had mine in 4 times for ticking that started at 17k miles after a oil change. Although several tecs have said it is normal service manager said he could hear nothing???? Had it in for an "service advance track" warning that required replacing steering rack. Miraculasly it has severly diminished since last visit to dealership.

As for others thinking of ordering a 5.0, it would be irrational to think that you likely to have the same problem. However, Ford's response has been enough to make me think I won't be ordering another. My problems are easily solved with a new engine -- but Ford instead wants to throw 2 quarts of tar in my current powerplant.
Terrible idea they proposed. Not only does gear oil flow like molasses in February, but the main EP additive is sulfur! Sulfur is a compound not good for catalytics converters - the whole idea stinks, literally! Jeesh, who is the dealer?

Default Engine knocking - tick continues 2012

Do not be confused by Ford dancing on this - these engines have very consistent problems documented. The TSB's, magic oil... Normal characteristic, they typically result in either engine replacement - lemon law buy back, replacement, or Ford's continual guessing at how or what to replace. ford is now on its 3rd attempt at replacing engine parts in my 2012 5.0. I wish these threads were better documented before I purchased mine. Ford recently came out voiding warranties for even the slightest MOD's - something they rarely did in years past. My vehicle is and has always been stock and well maintained. Engine began knocking after 2nd oil change. It is not faint - the service dept seemed surprised at how bad it was and refused to let me take it off their hands to a different dealer after refusing to provide a loaner car. Ford rep in the area is now involved and took care of a loaner after being in the shop for over 2 wks. I always planned on rebuilding the engine some day - certainly not at 10k miles. I have decided I am going to do everything in my power to document these issues while ford throws parts at my vehicle. For anyone on the Fence camaro vs mustang - the mustang will kick your butt the first few Thousand miles it is out of the shop after that - you can eat their lunch in the loaner cars or busses they will be in while Ford figures this out.

I did my first oil change at 10,000. Used Mobil 1 5w-20 and a wix filter. The only ticking I hear, is the PCV valve at cold start up and it goes away as soon as the engine idles down. I can give it a quick rev and it goes away immediately as the engine idles down. No big deal to me. Fastest car I've ever owned. But, if you haven't checked it go listen to your PCV valve on the passenger side and see if the noise is coming from there. I know some have a real problem, but when I first read this I was sure mine had the ticking. That is until I found out it was my PCV valve, just the little ball in there rattling around until it get some oil on it. Hope you guys get yours sorted.

I'm at wits end with this issue. I mean I love my car, the looks the sound (except the tick) but as many have said its embarrassing having a nice looking car that sounds like an old clunker as it slowly drives by. I have the exact same noise and symptoms as many of the other guys on here and other sites who have had their engines replaced deeming it a bad engine bearing. That's what scares me , not to mention the fact that I don't want my car sounding like that. I've wasted lots of time and money in bringing my car in to have serviced and tsb's done that don't fix the issue for ford to call it a "normal engine characteristic". That's BS, this is my last straw and I will be evoking t lemon law after this.

You seem to be missing the point here. The issue is the fact that they're replacing people's motors for bad engine bearings with this noise. I don't want a new car with bad engine bearings. I am glad your ok with your ls2 sounding the way it does.

Oh yea if its an actual bearing issue on a new engine. That sucks. I hope I don't have that problem.
All the noises on the LS2 I had were considered "normal". I believe most of the noise on the ls2 came from the lifters. After I did my heads and cam at around 37,000 miles it did quiet down but i replaced everything in the valve train. Cam, lifters, lifter trays, pushrods, ported heads, new springs, rockerarms with the comp trunion upgrade.

Don't get me wrong this engine has plenty of noises that are considered normal and I too consider them normal internal combustion engine sounds that just about every car with valves and injectors makes. But the 'tick' most people are talking about on this thread is def not a normal sound. Very close to an engine pinging.

I'm sure you won't have that issue if you haven't already noticed it. As I argued with the service manager today he told me it was a normal engine characteristic and I asked him why don't all new 5.0 mustangs sound like that then. I've heard plenty of these things that sound normal and don't make this noise. So why do some have this noise and not others?
