    Yeah let's see hopefully there is nothing bad :D
    This is my second engine, I cannot take another failure haha

    Not sure if you read the thread I linked to in my post, when I drained the oil I only got out 8 qts.....

    I noticed. It's supposed to have 10qts. However, the oil pan is huge in this new version. As long as you still had normal oil pressure, it will still run with only 8 qts with no real adverse affects.

    Maz, Have you seen this video? This a guy in the UK has a 2017 2nd gen motor, yet also had the typewriter tick. He had the whole thing torn down by a professional 3rd party, because his tune voided his warranty. Yet, even with all the add-ons tune, and equipment that put even more stress on the engine than OEM stock, they found nothing wrong with it. So, he tossed in a can of Ceratec, and VOILA! the tick was gone. LOL

    Thing is, they only made a visual inspection and didn't do any main and rod bearing clearance, or rod side clearance measurements.

    Ford can say it is normal, that is fine. It is their own ass they are covering and protecting from a recall with a $10k part replacement, with no fix. I have had the "tick" since 1k. The car now has 5k on it. I run the piss out of it and enjoy. But also, in the back of my mind are the facts that :

    1) The noise did not emerge till 1k
    2) Ceratec got rid of the tick
    3) After my second oil change (at 4500) the tick came back.
    4) Adding another bottle of Ceratec got rid of it AGAIN.

    More importantly, SOME have the tick, SOME do not. So, the cars that do not, are they "abnormal" then?

    Engineering basics, if they ALL do it, then call it normal, if say, 25%-50% (number out of the sky) do, then there is a tolerance or production issue that Ford is sweeping under the rug. The fact that a band aid product like Ceratec eliminates the issue, if sometimes temporally, is another glaring point.

    All Yotes are noisy....? My 15 GT was not in the least. from 88 miles at pick up to 13.8k when I traded for the 18. Not one tick, squeak, rattle or whimper.

    Please don't take this as a bash, I love my 18' to death. I will be keeping this one for a long time and eventually going sc'd down the road. The car keeps getting faster and faster as the miles increase, but there IS an issue here.

    Final thought and question...

    Anybody buy, drive, listen to a 2020 Yote yet? Tick and rattle?

    We shall see.

    I don't know what the source of our tick is and I don't really care. My car hasn't done it yet at 2,000 miles, and I have zero worries.

    That being said, the point of my post is to say that if you think our problems are bad, go check out the valve train noise threads in the Miata forums. Those cars have had lifter tick since they came out. People still complain, but still no one has been able to document a failure. Most have just accepted that this is the way of things. I suspect we should do the same.

    True regarding the oil pressure I guess the car would throw a code if the oil pressure would be to low (I hope)
    However if there is still oil in the pan do I have to much oil in the car :D. The dip stick looks ok though...

    I have not yet seen the vid, will have a look later today, thanks.

    MY BUY BACK IS COMPLETE...special ordered car , MAY 2018 got all the bells and whistles in wanted. I noticed the 2 k rattle at 10 miles on the car, no ticking...the car was a 6 spd convertible so I could hear it very easy with the top down.I waited to do the the first oil change and still the rattle. Ford said sound is normal for 5.0....I had a 2011 5.0 that did not make any tick or rattle.... parked car for winter..then in may 2019 I asked dealer to bore scope motor..ford agreed and found scoring in a few cylinders... the car had 3500 miles,,requested buyback and ford denied it. Ford ordered a long block for the car. The dealer was great and fully agreed. The new engine was a 2019 engine...took over a month to get swaped….tech did a great job..took their time and no scratches or any damage...I let Ford know that I would not be happy if the engine was like the factory one.The new long block ticked and rattled louder than the original...I requested a buyback July 29th 2019. Ford RAV approved buyback AUG 6 2019. The buyback was complete on OCT 5 2019. Ford stepped up to the plate and did the right thing. I loved the car and it was a pleasure driving it.. but for 50k I shouldn't hear an engine rattle as I go through the gears. Still love Fords! just not the 2018/19 5.0

    It sounds like a mechanical lobe driven high pressure fuel pump that starts to resonate as the DI system starts engaging around 2,000rpm.

    Oh wait...that's because it most likely is.

    Yeah mine starting ticking. Colder weather brought it on. It sounds more like a clicking when turn on a gas range to start it. Only on the first cold start of the day and it only lasts a minute or 2 before it quiets down to the point you can't hear it. I'm not even sure it's the engine. Doesn't sound like an engine noise but who knows.

    Yup. If it isn't drinking oil or down on power drive on.
