This is the 2nd engine on this car! First one was an act of nature problem. The 2nd gave me 4 year of service before the tick came! Nothing has worked so a rebuilt engine or junk the truck are my options! Ford replaced the engine the first time but I don't trust the anymore!

The damn thing made a humming noise when i started it starting like four months ago. that stopped about a month ago but then it started ticking when the motor was cold. within the last few days the ticking became constant and gets louder when i hit the gas. Its so loud its embarrassing! I don't know what the f*ck could be the problem!?!
