A 5.4L Triton doesn't have a distributor........it's a coil-on-plug engine. Ticking can be the pintles in the fuel injectors....... A tick in a pre-'02 Triton would have been a signal to grab a torque wrench and torque the spark plugs before one exited the cylinder head..... Maintained correctly, they're good engines. Seen 'em go over 500,000 miles with proper maintenance.
