my '01 7.3 excursion started idling rough and lost all power. I was away from home at the time and my extended warranty made me go to a ford dealer. the dealer said the #8 inj was bad and fuel was leaking into the valley from either the fuel heater or thermastat faulting out. both were replaced. The truck runs fine now but has a rod knock sound that you can hear when idling. Not loud but noticable...every 3-5 seconds or so.
The truck idled for 15 minutues or so under the rough idle condition. would this have effected a rod? the service tech said the one bad injector effected the amount of fuel/oil pressure getting to that entire side of the motor. Am I being anal or should I be concerned?
I've had that problem that sounded like a rod at idle but it was a broken motor mount.
