Sounds like a bad cam follower. The 4.6's were bad about it. I know this is a 5.4. Same type of valve train. Gunslinger did ask a good question though. Does it get faster with engine speed? Once the noise starts turn it off and take the belt off. Start it up and if the noise is still there that eliminates all the accs.
