400 miles and i recently got the 5.0 back from the dealer. Had a few concerns, some answered some not. Tranny noise, and some diff ticks i was concerned about.
Needless to say the dealer says its a "characteristic of the car". So i had posted a video a few days back where you can hear the exhaust tick coming from the front passenger wheel well.
I had the dealer start up 3 different brand new 5.0 and they all had the same exact exhaust tick. All loudest from the passenger wheel well. I firmly belive this is just a normal characteristic of the vehicle now.
When I returned home i popped the hood and was listening......and what do u know. The ignitor tick has found its way into my brand New 500 mile 5.0
A few thoughts on this. Since I have noticed it, it has gotten a little bit quieter (i hope).
So im sitting here thinking about how prevalent this problem is. I would probly have never noticed this isuue if I had not found the related video looking for somthing different.
Im willing to bet alot more 5.0 owners are plauged of this issue than we think. If i never would have leaned into my engine bay to listen and try to isolate this noise i never would have noticed it.
So, next time you take a drive and return home pop the hood before you turn her off and listen closely to the right valve cover twords the rear two cylinders and see if you hear anything.
Im prayin that this really is a break in issue.
I guess well find out in a few years.
