Unhappy Annoying Ticking

So I've had this problem from before the first oil change, not sure what it is> I asked the dealer to see if they could figure it out, but wasn't occurring when they had it. Basically its a ticking sound, kinda rapid fire type, at first it would do it some and then stop, but now it is doing it constantly and its really pissing me off. Today I had my window down on my way home on a backroad and I could hear it speed up as I accelerated, and slow down when I let off.

Anyone got an idea?
Thanks.

do a search for "typewriter noise"...very common and normally occurs after oil change until you get about 1500-2000 miles on new oil.

Thanks.

If the truck in your signature is the truck you are asking about then I retract my previous post as I was speaking to a known 6.7L problem...Don't know anything about 6.4L and this is the wrong forum, maybe mods can move your post...good luck

No, I'm talking about my 2014 F350. And it's not the typewriter issue, as I stated the problem started before first oil change, and it continues after my second oil change and 7400miles.

@Hansel, you may be right about that, I'm going to make an appointment and just take the service manager for a ride so he can hear it.

Ticking noise solved, it is the infamous typewriter, as my srvc manager showed me the TSB for it. Says it occurs after the truck has reached 150* and does it from idle all the way to 1700RPM. So basically the only time I won't hear it is when I'm going 80+. The TSB actually says to not attempt to repair the noise, says that it is a common noise for the 6.7.

No choice but to put up with it. There are thousands out there with this issue and it hasn't caused any issues other then being annoying

Thats exactly right, the TSB states that there are no long term issues with the engine, transmission, or anything on the truck, other than the fact that it is F..KING ANNOYING!
