Knocking, possible #8?
A few months ago, I had my truck scanned with the Ford Rotunda software. #8 cylinder came up on the computer but I didn't notice the truck running any different. Just recently, (250 miles ago) I decided to try the 100 performance setting on my chip for a whole tank to see what kind of mileage I would get. I've dogged the truck a few times between now and then and since i've had it on the 100 perf setting but I drive it as if it were in stock setting most of the time. Tonight when I pulled up to my house, I noticed what sounded like a knock. I left the truck running, popped the hood, and I could hear a knock coming from the passenger side towards the back of the engine. My question is, can I just throw an injector in, or is #8 cyl toast and the whole engine need a rebuild?
Truck is in sig, 117k miles. If you need more info, let me know.
