Rattle noise at idle HELP!
I've searched the forum but cannot find anything that sounds like my issue.
I have a '99 7.3l F250, 140xxx miles. I have an extra sound other than the normal diesel engine at idle sound. It's usually only at idle and goes away under power.
I took it to a local heavy truck shop and they say it's the torque converter.
They gave me two options, an equivalent replacement for $375, or a "heavy duty" one for $750.
Does anyone know what the difference is, and if it's worth another $400 for the heavy duty?
