Is this the Imfamous Tick?

Hey guys, I woke up this morning and came to work. Is this the tick everyone talks about with the 6.4 that ford won't aid with? There's no check engine light or anything. Thanks

Video's:

Mine is on the drivers side in the engine bay. Can't be heard at idle. but whenever the gas is applied, you can hear it. Almost sounds like metal grinding or something along those lines.

That video is so awesome.. That guy rocks!


Pop the hood and do what I did:

If it sounds like this then you are good to go

I used Opti-Lube oil additive and mine is gone now.

Also run a blackstone report on your oil.

I've heard the bad rocker arm before, it doesn't quite sound that bad. Its more on the drivers side like the second video. I'll have to try that and see what I get. It mainly does it when its cold out.
