    Hey, as the title states- are the 2019 coyotes developing the same tick as the 2018? Has Ford made any adjustments?

    Yes, same tick as 2018 cars and no Ford hasn't changed anything.

    Does anybody know what causes the tick? Does it lead to engine failure? How noticeable is it?

    I never had the issue with my 2018 or my 2019. Its hit or miss. Seems some people think they have the tick but is just the DI they hear. Others have it for sure and could case engine failure. Seems to be loose tolerance in the ring land. Someone posted pictures in Mustang6g. Ford says its normal with regards to the DI sound and does not cause any issues.

    Is it possible to unplug or disconnect DI at idle?

    The noise fades at full operating temps so it's hard to believe it's DI related.

    I've been fortunate enough that I haven't experienced any ticking in my 2018 as of 7,000 miles. Matter of fact, the Gen1 5.0L in my FX4 makes more "noises" than the Gen3 in my 2018 Mustang.

    I thought the tick originated way back in 2015 it's just more noticeable on the 2018 and 2019 cars.
