Loud noise following head gasket repair
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I blew my head gasket and did the tear-down, repair, and build-up. The oil was pretty bad, like chocolate milk. Heads checked out good. After the repair, truck was putting out significant blue smoke and had a contribution 5 fault. Tried running it for ~200 miles (on advice from a friend) but was not clearing up, and then it started making a loup **whopping** noise. I replaced injector 5 but noise still remains. The noise sounds like it's coming from the turbo. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Do I need to replace the turbo?
I'm trying to put a video up, but having problems with file format. If I get it figured out, I'll post the video.
Thanks for looking.
