Hello, I have an '11 5.0.
It had 1723 miles on it this morning.
My wife works at the Ford delaership where I bought my car.
I decided it was time for the 1st dreaded oil change.
I started the car this morning. Made my wife listen to the engine run.
It was very smooth and quiet.
Today an oil change and it has valvetrain noises out of both heads. I could hear them as soon as she drove it into the driveway. A constant "tick-tick-tick-tick-tick" very noticeable to me. It gets faster with the engines rpm range.
It has another noise out of the right side of the engine. An intermittent deeper sounding "tick tick..tick" every 5-6 seconds.
The car now has 1756 miles on it.
My first new car ever and the fun is going away with all of the issues creeping-up.
Thanks for any replies or help, AW.
this car has way to much wheel hop too.
especially when I am told by the dealer service manager that up grading the rear control arms to something like steedas stuff will void the warranty.
convieniently now ford racing sells the tune that the car should come with for 300 plus dollars and of course that will void the warranty too
but change the oil take care of your new car and enjoy all of the extra issues for free!!!
as it becomes something you want to sell.
