Umm, you need to be more specific. Are you talking about right after you turn it off and the exhaust starts to cool down? Yes, that would be normal.

If I have the same tick you're talking about, then it isn't the ticking that happens after you turn it off coming from the exhaust cooling. I've only noticed mine at idle since it's fairly quiet, mostly when I'm out of the car, you can hear it coming from under the car in my case, usually pretty regular and hardly audible for me unless you're in a place where the sound can echo back like the garage.

Wow surprised this guy has not checked back in.
I'd be checking soon after I posted if I was hearing a tick and did not know if it was normal or not lol

Well let me explain... After my car gets warm.. While it is idling,my car ticks.. It is worse when the a/c is running.. I am guessing the little load makes it worse..?
I took it to the dealer cause of a no start issue where they just re flashed the ecm or whatever they call it now( there was a TSB for the issue)... Mentioned this tick to them.. They looked at it.. Suppose to be a characteristic of the engine.. That's what I am told buy the dealers foreman... He said it was cause of all the chains and moving cams..
I have my own theory.. Once the oil gets hot.. It isn't lubricating a part of the rotating assy on these heads correctly on some engines.. IDK I didn't design the thing... Sounds like a bear metal tick...

Till a TSB or Ford recognizes it a problem.. There is no fix.. They are deeming it the engine.. Mechanics now working on flag time don't troubleshoot.. They are unsure what is making the tick, but willing to speculate . BTW I know what a injector sounds like.. It is not that..

Here is a Video.. Mine sounds like this... Morse code is what I call it.. It's not perfectly rhythmic...http://youtu.be/jB-F409uegg

Sounds like mine. Mine isn't cooling headers. I noticed mine against a wall too. I posted a video that is similar . It sounds like... Well crap... It sounds bad.. I hate it, but seems stuck with it awhile less I figure out a fix on my own...

Did you say there WAS a TSB on this?
If so and you have the symptoms the NO it is not normal.
In that case take it to another dealership that gives a flip about it's customers.
Get them to perform the service procedure that the TSB says to do.

Dont fall for them brushing you off man. DONT do it.
And if you could post me a link for the TSB. I'd like to read it.

There is a TSB for ticking lifters in the V6. It was an oiling issue to the cam followers. It affected only cars with engines assembled during a short span of time in 2010. The fix was for the dealer to put the cams and use a tool provided by Ford to machine an oil groove in the cam bearing blocks on the assembled engine. (or something like that).

I haven't heard of any such issue with the 5.0, but anything is possible.

Is it normal? Could be. Engines make funny noises. Some we hear, some we don't. You have a 5 yr, 50K mile warranty. Stop stressing over it. Document your report with the dealer and keep an eye out for a TSB. Now go have fun.
