exhaust leak or normal sound????

I recently purchased an 01 with 65k miles on it. In the lows rpms when I'm giving it gas it has a loud tick tick tick to it. Almost sounds like an exhaust leak to me but coming from under the Hood? I've had a buddy say that its normal with the 7.3s. Any input?

No it sounds nothing like that. It just sounds like a small exhaust leak that's the only sound I can compare it to

I don't hear leaks on mine,you might want to check for soot around the up pipes. Cause you might Jacobs leak.

check around the up pipes for soot. you can see the up pipes from under the truck they go from the exhaust manifold into the back side of the turbo. you'll hear an exhaust leak more from these as they are right against the fire wall. pretty common on these trucks to have them leak.

Just changed my up pipes last week because mine was making the exact same sound. Go ahead and upgrade to the beveled up pipes....youll be glad you did. Its restored my power and my truck runs like a top now. Replacement O-rings for Ford Diesel Engines is about the best price youll find.

Well, 43 big ones. If it were 430 big ones, you may have gotten in over your head by purchasing the truck.

What the other folks described is extremely common for the truck and you will have to do it one day or another. Its a dirty job as well. Make sure to replace the O-rings that come with the kit while youre in there. I would also purchase a new FPR from the same shop. Its a must with any truck over 100k

You wont hurt anything by not doing it - you simply wont have the power and fuel efficiency the truck was designed with.
