Expedition Limited V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles

I purchased my 2005 Ford Expedition in June of 2005

and everything was peachy until I started to hear a noise coming from the engine about a year or so after I purchased it. I took it in for a oil change and I mentioned the noise to the mechanic, since I was still under warranty. He told me it was normal and that I had nothing to worry about.

To make a long story short the noise has only gotten louder. It kinda sounds like a diesel.

I have people tell me my car's making too much noise & to check the oil. Funny thing is last week I changed the oil and two days later a man approached me to let me know my truck sounded like it needed a really bad oil change. Lol

Expedition 5.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,000 miles

The worst sounding engine ever. The ticking noise in the motor got worse and I told the mechanic at the ford dealership he said it was normal. Now this is the worst sound in the world for a newer vechicle. I am so disappointed in the motor of this ford product. I told the mechanic at the dealership that again at about 30,000 miles the noise was getting worse. The mechanic continues to tell me its a normal noise for this motor. Normal hell. Its going to cost over about $2500 to fix this problem and even when its fixed not sure the noise will go away. Hoping it will.
