Bonehead move on a 2014

Got a "Friend" that put 3 quarts too many in his brand new 14 F250 6.7!! after a morning of running around (less than 30 miles) I noticed a ticking or knocking sound. I removed the extra oil (while crying) but the noise still comes back. It doesn't happen when it first starts up but starts after a few miles. What have I done?!?!

Jack, I wish I knew what damage, if any, was caused by the overfill. I am curious tho,what prompted you to add the oil, were you switching to synthetic after an oil change or what?

I doubt 3qts is going to hurt anything that much. Have you searched for 6.7 ticking noise? I have noticed threads about and don't even own a 6.7.

Stroker 8, the reason for the overfill was partly a mistake on the dealer's part. they sold me the oil and told me how much to use. as a matter of fact they even called me a few hrs later to tell me that they had made a mistake. I have the receipt and the message saved fwiw. The other part of course is mine

Jesilvas, thanks for the tip!! I looked into it and now ill be able to sleep. seems that this noise is common after an oil change! not exactly sure why but sure am glad to see other people asking the same thing.
