03 7.3 ticking issue
Read through most of the posts on the ticking issue.
I'm getting an inconsistant ticking after warm up on my 03 7.3. No white smoke, lots of power, and the ticking goes away after idle. Almost sounds like a exhaust leak. Maybe it's normal. I don't know.
Just pulled a 15K load through the mountains in safe superchip tow mode, and I assure you I wasn't going at the rated speed limit. OODDLES of extra power. Zero problems and Zero codes.
So no ticking sound when cold, just when the unit is warm and only at idle.
What should I look for?
