Exclamation engine sounds like diesel

When I start my 2005 screw, 5.4 it sounds like a diesel. After the engine warms up, it quiets down. Is this the injectors? Something else? Should I run some injector cleaner through? Help me out here, new owner! Mileage is 121, 319 km.

2005 had injector problems. From what I understand ford extended the warranty on them as well. Go talk to the local dealer and see what they have to say.

VMP and 5-Star tuned no more

cam phazers and crank thrust bearings were an issue on these engines,most caused by aftermarket filters coming apart and clogging the head galleries,is the noise still there at 1200rpm?if not suspect the phazers.

a moments silence for the shelbyx,i hope her new owner enjoys as much.
