I talked to the owner today and he said it had the knock before the pump/injectors were changed. Been running like this for 60k miles has not gotten better/worse. The dodge dealership told him it was in the computer programming.....??
The truck was accidented back in 07 and wrote off. (rollover according to the history check)
Now this has got me wondering if its a wrist pin/rod ect that originated from the roll over.
I hear ya on thinking you hear things when you try hard, but this definately has a distict knock when you first start it. If you shut it off and immediatly start it back up no knock.
There is some oil from the blowbye tube on the front of the engine. Didn't see any smoke comming out the tube. I noticed some oil around the oil fill cap, but i have taken the cap off while its running and it won't flutter the cap and don't feel any big amounts of air comming out. The guy said he changed the cover gasket on the side of the block. I read in another thread a guy with a scored #6 blew out that seal.
If it was from the lower end should it not get louder with rpm/load ? And why so pronounced on start up lacking oil somewhere ?
Fired up my 12v and not even remotley close noise from it.
I got some lucas injector cleaner, and no i didn't run any snake oil in the fuel tank. I have not put the lucas stuff in. I'll try some 2 cycle oil to see if it helps.
