Hi,

I have a question regarding this engine noise. I just test drive it and it seems fine but I do hear this noise. tsk tsk tsk tsk.... (check the video)

Is this normal? if not, what do you think the issue may be?

This is a 12 year old F250 4x4.

Thank you very much for your help.

    How many miles on it? Which engine is this?

    It doesn't sound "alarming"--it's more like a lifter noise. If it were a camshaft issue, the noise would be heavier. But it could be a sign of wear or neglect, or maybe just a normal high-mileage engine that needs better maintenance.
