Truck Is Out Of The Shop!!!
Ok, here is what ended up happening with my 6.4 that I was hearing the tapping, knocking sound from. Went into the shop on friday Feb 1st, and the service team at my dealership isolated the noise at an idle, after the truck is warm. The noise was determined to be coming from the driver side of the block near the back cylinder 7 I believe I was told. The head service tech, removed the valve cover and visually checked the lifters, valves and the cam with no luck. Next he removed the oil pan to check the bottom half of the motor also with no findings. Ford and International Engineers were contacted and advised my technician to hold off just guessing and throwing parts at the motor until they can research the problem further to determine the EXACT cause of the problem! I was told that driving the truck with the noise will not cause any permanent damage to the motor and was advised to drive the truck until my service technician hears from International and Ford as what to fix on the motor. At this point I now have my truck back and will drive it until a fix is found. I was assured that Ford and International are now currently investigating the problem, which has been discovered in a large number of trucks. As soon as a fix is found, my truck will go back to the shop to be fixed with the parts needed to correct the problem. My dealership/service dept has been great and I really can't complain at all about how I have been treated. Just thought I would put this out for all to see because I know there are many with the same complaints. Good Luck to everybody
