Re: 2013 expedition el xlt miles?

If you hear the slightest ticking, it probably needs full timing chains, guides, cam phasers and chain slack adjusters. For the good stuff you are looking at $1,000 in parts alone. While it is apart, best to put in a new oil pump too, another couple hundred there. Put 5-30 oil in it instead of the 5-20. Ford started with that thinner oil for mileage purposes, but it lead to all these other issues later out of warrantee usually @ 100,000 miles (but some sooner/some later). If you go to the expedition forum, you will get detailed answers.
