Scotty, You have ranked Ford F-150 as the best pickup truck. In 2018-2019 Ford F-150 with the 5.0L engine went through a major design overhaul for the 2018 model year turning the once reliable 5.0L Coyote engine into an engineering disaster similar to 5.4 L 3 V engine. According to Ford expert in “Ford Tech Makuloco” channel, these redesigned engines have so many problems at low mileages such as the infamous BBQ Tick noise like in 5.2L Voodoo engine with cylinder wall scuffing as a result of liner less cylinder and forged aluminium pistons, oil consumption, rattle on deceleration and the latest is chirping from a failing timing chain tensioner. It seems every week a new message is coming out from Ford with another common failure point popping up that is under engineering investigation.

The 10 speed automatics are also Uber complicated, sure to break when it wears out and a nightmare to service.

My feeling is, these may come out really dirty on Ford and harm their reputation by the time it is 2023 (5 years after 2018).

Would love your thoughts and experience on them. I will post separately the ticking problem and how the dealerships are disregarding them showing the technical service bulletins.

TSB 19-2144 5.0L - Engine Knock Type Noise At Idle

Some 2018-2019 F-150 and Mustang vehicles equipped with a 5.0L engine may exhibit a light to moderate knocking type noise at idle (600-700 RPM) that is sometimes described as a quiet diesel type sound. The noise is usually more prominent on the passenger side of the vehicle toward the rear of the engine. As the engine comes up to operating temperature, the noise level increases slightly. This noise is not detrimental to engine function and has no short or long term effects on engine durability. This an operating characteristic of the 5.0L engine and no repairs should be attempted.

SSM 47787 - 2011-2019 Mustang/F-150 - 5.0L - Tick Tap And/or Typewriter Noise At Idle

Some 2011-2019 Mustang and F-150 vehicles equipped with a 5.0L engine may exhibit a ticking noise at idle after an engine oil change. It is often referred to as typewriter noise because of its similarity to the sound of a mechanical typewriter. The noise in question may be heard on some engines when engine temperatures reach 150°F (65°C) or higher and engine speed is at idle up to approximately 1700 RPM's. It can typically be heard at the front wheel well, and is often isolated to the transmission bell housing or oil pan area. typewriter noise is not detrimental to engine function or durability and has no short or long term effects on the engine. This an operating characteristic of the 5.0L engine and no repairs should be attempted.
