Yeah Barry, its called "6.7 Typewriter noise" you can do a google search on it, there's a lot of info about it. I had it happen to my 2014. It is harmless to the engine. It will go away when you get about 1500-2000 miles on the oil change, or, if it bothers you, just dump a bottle of Motorcraft XL-17 oil additive/friction modifier in it. That stuff cured it for me every time. It costs about $33 a bottle.

I hope this helps you.

I ordered a bottle of the XL-17 because I've got less than 500 miles on this oil change but I was wondering if I went back to the 15/40 T5 if it would quit? I think I'm going to try it and if it doesn't I'll add another $37 bottle of XL-17. I also wonder how wide spread a problem this really is if my dealership doesn't even stock the XL?

I wasted $37 on the XL17. I put it in about 400 miles ago and the tick is still there. I'm going back to the Rotella T-5 15/40 and see if will go away.

I’ve used T6 5-40 and MC filters x 3 oil changes w/13.5k miles- never had the tick when new or current...never had the tick w/my ‘13 either.

I am deleted and I use PM-22 in every tank of Shell diesel only. And, I tow heavy at high altitude.

SCHAEFFERS Fixed me up

I just changed my oil after 9500 miles on my Schaeffers 9000 when the oil light came on. When I changed to this oil I had the tick that went away after some miles.

This oil change I added one pint of their Molly EP, (Supposed to treat 2 1/2 or 3 bottles with our oil capacity, but I decided against it since the 9000 is not suppose to need more Moly, since it's already in there).


My Tick was there for about 15 seconds and went away with this Oil change. I started it again tonight after sitting for a week after the oil change and only a short trip to the store. There was no ticking tonight also.


Buy your Scheaffers from a local rep if possible. It is much cheaper that way. 1/2 price compared to Amazon currently. If you can't find a rep, PM me and I can put you in touch with Mine. He is a great guy and worth the 45 minute drive to his house. If you order $375 worth of products, there is free shipping to your door.

Do you agree with this ? Other than this thrust washer explanation, does anyone else know what is producing the noise?

What noise?? There is no noise when using MC 10w30. This "noise" is a hoax.....LOL


With the depth of people reporting/experiencing the noise then resolving the "issue" based on their oil choice. It's just the way it is, so find an oil that you like that doesn't allow/helps prevent the noise.

I have only use MC 10w30 and MC filters, dealer does all the changes whenever the display message comes up, usually around 7500 miles since last one, it gets taken in for all scheduled service intervals - The typewriter noise has occurred on a few occasions after the oils changed, but not every time. But it did occur this last time changed 2 days ago... which got me to wondering if the actual cause was ever discovered... I have read the service bulletin about it being normal and always there just more noticeable with the new quieter engines... but why is it not always there.?..I have 2 pints of schaeffers molly ep that is going in today, be the first time anything other than MC10w30 has been down that hole...

On this last change also sent a used oil sample to black stone labs to see how the engine is doing with 115k having only used the MC products. Will post back the results when received.
