I just recently installed axel back exhaust on my 05 mustang gt
I have a problem with my engine like a ticking
problem I went to a shop and they told me it's my
variable cam timing thats messing up but I just
recently installed Corsa Extreme Exhaust on my 05
Mustang and it doesn't sound any better as far as
exhauste sound could the problem with my engine
have somthing to do with my exhaust sounding so
first of all...its not an exhaust leak right?
is it a 302?? valves adjusted right?
I'm not sure but could an exhaust leak mess with the exhaust sound
It's a 4.6L
The 4.6 can have an exhaust gasket blow, causing a ticking sound. I've had a blown exhaust gasket on two 4.6 engines. One on my '06 Mustang GT and one on my wifes Mercury Mountainer. Most likely that's the ticking sound. I'd take it to a Ford dealer service department or another well know mechanic to have checked out. The factory gaskets are very good so if that's the problem, upgrade to a better gasket. I really don't believe an exhaust gasket leak will cause a mellow tone through your mufflers. Might put your hand at the exhaust tip with engine running and see if you can tell if the same exhaust pressure is coming from each side.
