Default 5.4L ticking noise?

I have a 2010 xlt w/ a 5.4L motor. I have about 31,000 mi and for the past few motnhs I can hear a ticking noise in the cab, kinda like a lifter or something. Wondering if anyone else has had this problem or heard of any fixes or TSB's for this? Does it all the time, doesn't matter if it under load or not.

Welcome to the wonderful world of the 5.4. My 05 F350 does and so does just about every other 5.4 I have ever had experience with. Wouldn't worry about it.

I know some older ones have that noise. We have some of those older
F150's at work. Just thought maybe they could have fixed that problem.

My '04 Lariat had the Cam Phaser knock. I think that started after about 10K. Didn't hurt anything just really annoying.

The 2009 & 2010 5.4 3valve engine Cam Phasers can make the ticking noise from oil "starvation" usually when 1st starting engine on a cold day & oil still thick( my 10 xlt with 9k sometime tick on start up & several minutes when cold out)
If you changed oil regularly you should be fine - I heard some cheap non motorcraft oil filters creat some restrictions that can lead to ticking - keep that in mind

Default 5.4 Ticking Noise

Hey...many of them sound a bit like a Singer sewing machine (for those that know what that is) with a quiet fast tick tick going on and can be heard outside...appears to be absolutely normal. As for what causes it, maybe others know better.
