Strange ticking from left side.

Hey guys,

I have a ticking or grinding noise coming from the engine, it seems to be coming from the left side near the air filter and you can hear it over the normal diesel engine sound. Its pretty loud when its idling but not sure what its like while in motion. I did a search and came across this thread 6.4 in the shop with motor noise
but I am not sure the answer is there. I am kind of scared to bring it to my dealer because I have the DPF and Tuner and CAI installed. They will probably try to F me over with warranty work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

So I was chatting to a HD Diesel mechanic at my work and he said it sounds like a bad bearing or it could be a pulley. It goes in Tuesday to get looked at. Should I remove my Tuner and DPF just to be safe?

I have a 2008 F550 with 84500 miles on it. My noise started out as a "tick", this tick seems to be a problem for alot of people. I found that it was comming second hole on the right bank. I then pulled a oil sample and it came back high on iron. I talked to Ford and they did nothing. The tick went away about as fast as it came. Now after about 10000 miles I now hear a popping noise coming from the aircleaner. This noise I know well. I pulled the oil filter and cut it open and found iron. I now Know the camshaft has a bad exhaust lobe. Iam not a@# but i had it figured out after i heard the poping coming from the air cleaner, and it took Ford a week. So my point is if you have heard a tick or a poping noise. Pull your filter and cut it apart. Iam sorry to say you will not like what you find.
