So the truck in my sig the other day starting to have a tick come out of the drivers side on top of the engine. it almost sounds like an air leak but i cant find anything leaking anywhere. so i hooked my smarty up to it and there was a dtc that said cooling fan speed, so i cleared it and it has not come back yet. my mileage has dropped a little bit but not much only like 1 mpg or so. I just changed my fass filter and went with a 2 micron and it almost sounded like the tick got a little bit quieter, so im thinking fuel related. took it to several diesels guys and they all say" never heard that noise out of a cummins but i would have your injectors checked?" So im gonna pull em tomorrow evening. there is a shop round here that will test em for 30 a pc if i pull em. what do yall think? My truck got 132000 an as far as i know they are stock injectors. any help is appreciated.

The DTC most likely means that your fan clutch is failing and needs to be replaced. The tick could be that your are due to have your valve lash adjusted.
