Right on, good tip there (on the SeaFoam).
Speaking of the 5.4L, just the other day, I had a look at my father-in-law's 5.4 F-150 to hear a ticking sound. Didn't sound that bad to me. The dealer quoted him 6-10 thousand (Scary!!!) dollars to replace cracked exhaust manifold and cam phazers/timing chain setup. I told him to just drive it and not waste (or get ripped off) his money. I hear many trucks ticking like his and hear it's a common trait.
He was hinting for me to fix it...I ain't! I have better things to do. I thought my 6.0L was a pain to work on...looking at his 5.4L, it's worse IMO.
