08 Rattly. after sitting 2 weeks,

All,
I have an 08 with a spartan tuner dpf delete. thats about it.
running perfect 50K miles. I go out of town for 2 weeks. Im in Florida.
My baby is sitting in the garage. the whole time.

I get back... and at an idle and slightly above.... She sounds like an old skool diesel. Once I get going she quiets up.

Ideas? sitting too long? etc.. or Am I about to drop some bucks.

It's not a ticking is it? These trucks can have a tick that comes and goes. Mine does it. Sometimes it's pretty loud. Other times you can't hear it.

No idea but mine sits for 2 week periods quite often and she fires up sounds normal.
