Vibing, Moaning, Farting, gawsh...
So I'm one of the unfortunate few who's been having annoying sounds coming from his 6.0 lately. I got a moan that comes on about 1500 rpm and tapers off after 1800-2000. My dash is vibrating/humming excessively...and now...turbo farting! It's been cold here in Tally the last couple days and now when the engine warms up I can make it fart consistently.
Marc responded to a farting post saying that not driving the truck hard enough could foul up the turbo, hence the consistent turbo fart whilst the engine is cool.
I've also heard that carbonization can cause the moaning sound.
As far as the vibes go, which smooth out at part throttle, I'm hoping it's just a clogged fuel filter set. The current filters are only 6,000 miles old, but I've run a whole tank of B20 through the truck and who knows, maybe that thing is just dirty. I'm praying that does something about the idle vibration.
So, I guess with the farting I'm guilty of not driving the truck hard enough the last 3 months or so. I do a lot of short trips and stop and go city driving. I try to "Get On It" at least once or twice a day...maybe that ain't enough??? I guess I just gotta race the P*SS out of it eh? Dang fuel prices. Dang them to Hades. Any more ideas guys?
