Do you have a more exact location of the ticking noise? Is it loud enough to over come the radio on mild volume? Or can it be heard only in absolute silence?

I have 60k big turbo. Always had that noise. I've given up worrying about it.

Yea, I hate that sound. It's disheartening cause it sounds like there's a dang problem, sounds ghetto, and has no rhyme or reason to it. But like other have said...10,000 miles now and runs great. This is just my personal interjection so take it with a grain of salt like anything else on a forum, but I disagree with most of the "suggested" causes. Seems to me if it were a fuel pump, or injectors, or valve train, or A, B, or C, it would have a rhythm or a cycle, or a frequency or something to the sound. It would/should be repeatable or predictable. This sound has none of that. It's just a flippin ugly ass rattle.

There quite a few cases of the Mustang Coyote engines with strange ticks too.

I've had the same noise sitting at idle on both my ST's. Kinda like a small diesel engine would make. I have heard it is the direct fuel injectors or fuel pump. It doesn't sound like a performance car. More like my 43hp Deere tractor at idle.

I have a rattling noise as well. I had a 2004 SVT Focus that sounded the same and was told it's the flywheel. Think they said it was a dual mass flywheel or something. Said it was normal. Before I found out I *****ed enough so that they replaced the transmission and the clutch. It still made the noise. That's when the techs said Ford told them it was a normal sound of the flywheel. If it breaks that's what the warranty is for.
