diagnosing cylinder knock
On my wifes 99 I have knock. Let me start by saying I believe the injectors are tired. At first diagnosing, I needed 2 injectors, cylinder 7 and 3. They were real loud an and making a ton of racket(real bad when cold) I have ticking coming from some others but I am chasing a knock. I am thinking piston or wrist pin. AT 50 mph when I take my foot off the accelerator all goes quiet like it should, but if you listen carefully the knock is there, just a lot quieter due to no fuel explosion in the cylinder. I believe its cylinder 3.
(new reman injector in the hole) (casserly)
When i unplug that cylinder its odvious that thats the loudest source my noise.
I find that if I unplug a cylinder and walk into my house, or walk away from the truck, that the noise I am trying to fix is easier to hear. Getting away from the other injectors makes hearng the knock clearer.
It does not seem to get much louder when driving it. I think I have a piston that is failing.
My truck had injctor noises a while back, but made no noise at 50 mph when i took my foot off the pedal an let it coast, this one does have a quiet
