Does anybody with 5ltr windsor's suffer from ticking or tapping noise when the car is idling. i have heard its common on the 6 and have heard a few people suggest the v8 too. i've notice mine since using synthetic mobil s 15w-40w oil. it seems as though there is a ball bearing in the sump bouncing around making a tick noise every now and then.....
has anybody experienced this or any noise from the 5ltr v8??
Stand next to the L/F headlight with car idling & listen. If it sounds like the ticking noise is coming from behind the bumper then it's coming from the purge canister solenoid. It's controled by the PCM.
I've heard numerous windsor AUs with the ticking noise including my own. Don't believe the lifter thing because there doesn't seem to be a solution.
