Have Truck Repair Questions? Ask an Expert
Hi Stanley, My name is***** will be glad to help. Is the engine smoking and if so what color smoke? Is it running rough like a misfiring injector or runs ok but a steady knock from idle to high RPM?
Does the knock go away once at operating temperature? Is it only at cold startup? I recommend servicing the engine and cutting open the old filter to inspect for signs of metal/bearing material indicating internal problems. Squeeze the excess oil out in a vise for better viewing of the sample. Also check the bottom of the oil pan and drain oil for the same and for signs of coolant, etc. If any are found do not make the trip or you will be stuck as those are all signs of a failure occurring.
