Thumbs down clicking/ticking sound

Been hearing a clicking/ticking coming from the engine area....seems to happen when stepping on the accelerator and coming to a stop. I read another post on here about a clicking sound, but every response on there says the noise starts right after an oil change and stops after a couple hundred miles...... Just took it to the Ford "Diesel Guru" at the dealership by my house, and he says its normal...i have 3 other friends with the same truck (2011) and nobody has that problem!!! WTF?!?!?!?!

I have had all three manufactured trucks cummins, duramax, and now ford 6.7, my duramaxes did this ( type writer) noise, especially after a oil change, I have notice it did this more often with conventional oil then synthetic , both trucks that did this lasted me a long time, this is cause by air bubbles in the filter housing as the pump pumps it thru, I was told its normal, I got used to hearing it, at the end I liked hearing it, it will go away with in a few hundred miles.

Just changed my oil at 1000 miles. Just for peace of mind and to get the 10w-30 out and put some 15w-40 for heat purposes. Filled the oil filter up, started it no tick, drove 15-20 miles no tick, came back home 15-20 more miles and now I have the type writer noise. I've read quite a bit on this. I don't understand why all of a sudden after changing the oil it does this

It's normal all it is is the break in process of the motor all diesel motors do it, when you change the oil its at its thinnest state so until the oil thickens you will here that noise.... You can especially here it with the new 6.7 because of the new quite emissions and the multi sequential firing objectors make the motor so quite... It was harder to hear it with other motors because of the motors firing process (single, split, multi injector firing process

Well I mean it makes sense but why don't they do it brand new before you change the oil?

I actually don't remember if I heard it at first or not.... But I would assume those parts are coated from factory so at first it doesn't do that until it wears off a little and I'm betting that's somewhere around the first oil change .... I tend to only hear it for the first couple hundred miles after each oil change... When that motor was new I bet the first couple hundred miles the new coating just started to wear off as the oil thickened so then by the time the first oil was due you were able to hear it

Well Im just glad most trucks are experiencing this and it's normal. Hope it goes away after a couple thousand miles bc the quietness was really nice and got used to it.
