    Hi all, I just wanted to chime in and say that I had the timing tensioners and the guides are done on my 5.0l, along with timing chains.
    A previous post referenced the viscous fan being the issue. I think that would be the case too as mine just exhibited the same ticking after all that work done.

    I guess I'm left with replacing the fan and hope the sound goes away.
    By the way, the service bulleting that addresses the ticking sound related to the chain guides is this
    LTB00474NAS3. See attached too.

    And I was just thinking about trading in my 2010 for the v6. Might be better off doing the repairs...
