03' F150 4.6L - flutter / ticking noise
There is only 2500 miles on the truck bought 1.5 months ago
When engine is over 35mph - annoying noise occurs.
Noticed it after 500 miles, thought it was still breaking in? Sounds like exhaust leak or lifter knock?
Brought it to dealer and mechanic took a drive with me and he definitely heard it. He thought is was an exhaust leak.
The truck has been there since Thursday morning.
Just now got the answer, that there is some ford Bulletin out describing noise.
There is "supposedly" nothing dealer can do until the engineers come up with solution.
I would NOT have bought the vehicle if I knew this was the case.

I drive alot of highway miles to jobsites and consider this explanation totally unacceptable.
What do you all think / any suggestions? first time Ford owner.
