The loud ticking started about a year ago but has gotten louder over time. When it first started the shop said it was normal. The other ticking sound just started and it sounds like its the top of the engine. Maybe injectors? Idk. I had a shop last week recommend replacing the ac belt with a special kit but they werent sure if that was the cause of the noise. But because there was a repair bulletin or something out they would want to start there. Also, the truck still runs great. And once Ihit the gas the noise is gone. But no lights on and no rough idle or anything.

I have a 2012 with a 5.0 and 52,000 miles on it and it is currently at the dealer right now getting everything under the timing covers replaced. But mine ran wierd and only had slight noise. It would run like it had a tuner at times. Shut the truck off , go in the store or wherever, start it back up and it would run like normal. But,,, sometimes it would have no power at all, barely move down the road. With mine it was the cam phasers are throwing the timing off . Mechanic said the timing would go way advanced, then way retarded, then back to normal. All while driving down the road. So they are replacing it all under warranty.

My 2012 has that same sickening sound to it, only maybe not quite as noticeable. I began hearing it not long after I bought it (probably around 36000 miles or so). It now has 46000 and has either gotten worse or I'm just fixated on it. Anywho, after having one dealership blow me off with the old, "sounds normal to me", it's currently at another, much more cooperative dealer waiting on a new long block to be installed this week.
