Possible hole out??
I'm hoping I'm just paranoid - but recently the truck just feel's a little off to me?
What I've noticed:
1) slight engine (and yes - verified it was engine only) vibration between 1300 to 1700'ish RPM.
2) Fuel economy has plummeted down to 11mpg (from 16mpg normally)
3) Used to cruise the highway at 70mph at about 1700, now - it's closer to 1900/2000rpm
4) I know the diesel cackle of a 7.3 at idle - but I swear it's louder than usual recently, especially on the drivers side. And at idle - I 'think' I hear a tick, that's louder than the injector solenoid.
No Codes or CES/CEL's being thrown and already checked the harness.
EBPS tube cleaning is on my to do list, (although I think irrelevant at this point)
But I'm wondering if based on those symptoms if it sounds like I may have a hole out (injector failing?)
Thanks for any input.
