Loud noise

#1
Hey guys so my 2009 v6 is making this loud noise somewhat like a clicking but not the kind you get when yoir low on oil. Taking a look around i see in my oil cap this thing that can be moved rubbing against my chain is this the issue ? And what is this ? Please ill take all educated guesses. I have no codes and I idle fine.

Take the Mustang into a reliable shop for a diagnostic. From what you described it could be a minor or major issue. Sorry i could not be of more help.:stang5:

It looks like a shield or part of the tensioner came loose and moved to interfere with the chain.

I really have no idea with the SOHC engines- Id agree with the above, have a shop diagnose it. They may be able to tell just looking at it like you did.

Hey guys if an admin can close this thread feel free too. I took it to my mechanic and ended up getting a new engine. Apparently the guide to my timing chain wasnt getting enough oil and dried out then broke off inside.
