With 256k on the clock, I suspect that one of the injectors has failed and is causing a fuel knock. At this time, I HIGHLY recommend to have it looked at. If you let it continue and it gets worse, it could easily burn up a piston and cylinder. Don't drive it if possible until you have it checked out... IF you have a scanner and want to run some testing yourself, let me know the make and model of the scanner and we can go from there...
Keep me posted and let me know if you have any additional questions...
No, There is no test that you can do for fuel knock on a 2006. NEVER,NEVER disconnect a fuel line while the engine is running. Fuel Spray at these high pressures can be deadly!!!! This is a "Common Rail" engine, meaning that if you disconnect just 1 fuel line before starting the engine, the engine WILL NOT start due to insufficient rail pressure to fire the other injectors.. You MUST use a scanner to perform a fuel injector kill test.
If you had access to the Miller Special tools for fuel flow testing, you would at that time be able to eliminate injectors by "Capping off" the fuel rail after removing a fuel line...
