Not happy to be posting in this section-

Well I have only had the truck for about a month thing ran MINT. I was on a cross country trip and was about 55 miles from my destination and smoked a mule deer, a big one and at 70mph. SO that being said the radiator, intercooler, fuel cooler, well all the coolers had to be replaced.. And ever since then things haven't seemed the same.
I have this loud clattering type noise after the truck has been run. It goes away after a little bit but as soon as I shut the truck off and turn it back on its there again..
Also I have this weird ANNOYING whining type noise when idling and I think a little while driving.. Truck only has 52,000 on it. ANy ideas.....

Thanks Sniper-
From reading some other threads it seems to me that the shop didn't bleed the air from the new fuel cooler and its the pump making the noise... Gonna call tomorrow.
Hope its something minor..

if you had to replace the turbo/fuel cooler the system will have to be bleed or you'll have a huge air pocket trapped in the cooler. Hopefully you don't burn up the pump in the mean time

The bleeder is actually up on top of the VGT actuator, it's a hex plug

All of the stuff replaced was done by a body shop.. SO I will probably assume they didn't bleed it.. Is this something I can do myself? Or should I call them up and have them pay the bill @ ford?..... I have only put 100 miles or less since the repairs were made.
AS far as the clattering type noise goes, it sounds like its in the lifter valley.... Any ideas on this? I should shoot a sound clip of it..

you may just wanna get it checked out at a dealer. if you want i'll type out the bleed procedure but it might be tough to figure out the noise.

I appreciate it! Yeah I will just call the dealer... What I am wondering is where the truck was worked on by an auto body shop will Ford still warranty my engine? This is a BIG certified shop and they did an AMAZING job on the paint and body work.. But there are NOT diesel techs.. know what I mean..

As far as bleeding the air I will assume its something along the lines of unbolting the cooler and having it below or above its mounting point and open the cap and the bleed bolt? But I will see if they will take care of it 1st.
