Injector Tick or Something else?
I recently purchased a 2002 f350 7.3L. It seemed that it blew smoke on startup (it's cold here, but does blow alot of smoke) until it warmed up for a few minutes, and has an loud anyoing ticking (almost like a rod knock, but not quite). The motor also had a miss in it a little.
I failed a contribution test on #8 cyclinder, so I replaced the injector yesterday. The engine sounds smoother, and has plenty of power. Runs great, still blows smoke on startup. But this ticking noise has to give. Can injector cackle be this loud? It starts up fine, after 3 minutes the cackle begins. Is there anything I can do to help make ti quiter? Thank you.
