Clicking/Ticking Noise

I have a 08 6.4 F250 and i'm starting here a clicking/ticking type of noise coming from what i believe is the fuel cooling pump. Has anyone had this type of problem or know what is going on? This my first diesel truck need some help or ideas on what I should be afraid of getting ready to take a 1,500 mile trip in two weeks.

I'm also new to my diesel truck and I've heard a dripping sound the other weekend coming from under the front passager side floor. Is that where you heard it?

My noise was coming from drivers side by the hood and firewall. A friend located the noise it and found out it was a vacuum pump, either the pump is bad or I've got a leak somewhere. he disconnected the power to. Now noise is gone!

If your vacuum pump is running constantly, it's probably a leaky or disconnected vacuum line. If you turn your key to the on position but don't start the truck, you'll hear the pump run. It should stop after 30 seconds to a minute or so. I don't really know how long exactly, but it will stop. If it doesn't, you've got a leak somewhere. The vacuum system in these trucks is fairly limited, meaning it doesn't run very many things, so it shouldn't be too tough to track the leak down.

If you don't have the pump plugged in, certain things won't work. These might be things you'll miss, like air conditioning and ESOF 4x4. Then again, that's all the vacuum system runs, so maybe you won't miss them. However, I like AC and 4x4, so I'd be inclined to fix the leak.

For dnaber, a drip coming from the passenger side could have been condensation on the AC compressor. The amount of water that builds up on that thing when it's humid out surprises a lot of people the first time they see it (including me).

Yes it was running all the time. My goal is to track down the leak. We are pass the AC season, but 4 X 4 season starts soon (maybe this weekend, depending which way the storm goes) but thats fun of living in North Dakota!, thanks for your help and info. I enjoy this forum reading and I'm learning a lot.

It's normal.
There's a TBS about it.

Here's mine:


Mine only happens when she's been sitting for a while and I start her up and last until she's warm.

Also happens when I'm towing a heavy load on a very hot day.
I was thinking it was oil issue aka metal on metal but it comes and goes sometimes...

Does the sounds and location match?
I did the video for this one reason so other can see if it is the same.
