Rapid clicking/ticking noise -- HELP?

Hello,

I am hearing a rapid ticking/clicking noise starting at about 50mph+, which sounds to be coming from the motor. The sound is very noticeable when coasting. If you are to be coasting downhill, the sound will be noticeable, but when you step on the accelerator and give it some fuel, the sound seems to disappear. The sound has a sort of metallic sound to it.

I filmed this video to demonstrate:


Go to about 0:32 into the video, turn your volume up, and listen very carefully. It sounds sort of like a metallic, ticking chatter.

Any ideas on what this could be? Should I be worried?

Thanks in advance!

First thing I'd check is ujoints. Drop the drive shaft to check, pry bars are only good when a ujoint is completely toast.

I had originally thought it would have been my u-joints also, however the sound seems to be coming from under the hood. It's odd because I have no loss of fuel mileage or no high EGT's/trans temp.

I also should add that it seems to be an RPM related thing, not so much speed. For example, if I am coasting down a hill and approach 40 mph I will hear a ticking start, but as soon as I turn overdrive on and the RPM's drop, the ticking seems to vanish.

Any further ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Torque converter. Is it a stock one?

Ahh.. I wonder if it is the torque converter.

Unless the guy that owned it before me changed it out, which I highly doubt he did, it is most likely the stock converter.

How would I test to see if it is the converter? I assume it's pretty involved, like pulling the tranny??

Not really any way to physically verify it without pulling it out. It will certainly get louder over time before it finally goes though.

Would a torque converter lock up test be worth anything or no in this situation ?

Ok. What happens when it goes (I'm sorry, not very good with this stuff)? Will the entire transmission be shot or just the tc?

Also, I should add that sometimes when I am going down a small hill (only getting up to about 35 mph) the engine (or possibly the tc in this case) kinda lugs and makes it feel almost as if it slows the truck down and the RPM's rise, then it will go away shortly after I accelerate.

Also, should I just run my tc to near its death, or does it sound to you like it is still somewhat drivable?

Thanks again

Try this.

Turn od off and see if it changes. If tc is making noise it should go away when in lockup mode where its compressed together
