Well this probably has been said before and mentioned before but i was having a motor tick that sounded like a lifter tick, but it wasnt a lifter tick. The front spark plug on the passenger side of the motor ended up being loose causing my motor to dog and loose compression to it as well. I was looking in the motor feeling for an exhaust leak and I accidentally touched the plug wire and it completely stopped the tick. Thank goodness I found it as early as I did before it caused a bunch of issues!

Nice catch.

I remember seeing someone change plugs on his F-150 with the 5.4, and he didn't tighten one of the plugs down enough (or at all). So, when he tried to start the engine, the plug shot up and the mounting ear on the coil pack broke clean off.
