Dealer Service for next week

Taking the truck in to get the Tensioner/ Idler pulleys replaced as the squeaking noise is becoming more consistent now.

I was also going to have them install the latest flash (trucks a '10 built in '09), fixed cab creaking under driver floorboard and check over a few other odd noises I pick up on every now and then.

I have a stupid blend door (bottom one) that is very intermittent when it comes to the random seeking (HDD/type writer) noise. I'll bring it up too but dont think they will care if it is not doing it when they have it.

Are there any other recommendations you have that I should bring up or look at and add to the list of items I have above?

Thanks much.

48K on the ticker. Dailey Driver 90% of the time and it sees the road 2-3 times a week. I do not tow. I have put on a average of 6k this year.

Mine is a '10 doing the exact same things except my creaking is when I drive through a ditch and flex some it sounds like its coming from my rear passenger door area. The blend door that clicks and all is also intermittent on mine and is the lower one. I can put pressure on it while its doing it and it quit. My tensioner/idler only does the squeak/chirp when it gets really cold, but a friend of mine's '10 does it when he cranks up at no matter what

if it were me, I would change these fluids:

1. coolant fluid:
- don't do a chemical flush unless your prepared to replace a clogged oil and or egr cooler, just drain and refill the system with appropriate coolant/distilled water ratio

2. rear differential fluid
- limited slip re-ends require a friction modifier and/or full synthetic fluid

3. transmission fluid:
*transmission flush with a machine is never reccomended don't listen to ford guys...
-just drain the pan, drop pan and replace filters, reinstall pan and refill with appropriate amount and kind of fluid.

all these you can do very easily too.

I do trans, dif, and coolant at 40-60k and oil at 5k and fuel at 10k. granted im a 6.0 but im sure they're not that different from a 6.4

Any sort of articulation causes it for me including hard right hand turns and hard breaking. I checked sway bar and cab bolt and all looks tight. So I gave up.

Ford sells a grease with some sort of synthetic blend/ fiberglass material in it for joints on the undercarriage. you can ask the parts/ service department to grease everything at your service appointment. it should be a complimentary option.
