Ok changed my oil a couple of days ago and now i have this annoying noise coming from my truck. How long does this usually last? Anybody found a way to avoid it?

Ford posted a bulletin on it, it is normal and will go away after 200-399 miles if not sooner

It might be the def pump emptying the def from the lines back to the tank. Even with deleted tuning the def pump still does this process after vehicle is shut off.

I read that it goes away after a couple hundred miles. I changed it myself this time. Don't know if that makes a difference. I don't think it is the DEF tank. The noise is definitely in the front of the truck.

Just put 2500 miles on my truck going from Florida to Tennessee and back. Still sounds like a typewriter. Can't hear it inside the cab, but no mistaking it when you get out. Ran like a top the whole trip and averaged 17.5 MPG, which included a lot of mountain driving. I don't want to put it back to stock so i can take it to the dealership. Any ideas?

Everything that I have read or heard was it should go away after a couple of hundred miles. The one thing I am wondering is this is the third time the oil had been changed. The first 2 were at the dealership and the this one I did. Never had this problem when it was done at the dealership. I can't imagine they do anything differently. Pretty straight forward job.

Sounds like we performed the same maintenance. I agree i don't think it has anything to do with the water separator being drained.

Just curious, are both you guy's running 15-40 wt oil? I heard the factory fill is 10-30 just wondering if the heavier weight oil is adding to the tapping noise.

Guess I'll try the factory oil next time. Can't figure there is that much difference, but who knows.

Ill say this so take it for what its worth. I have tried other oil than motorcraft twice in my truck. Twice. On each occasion the bearings on the turbo went out. Coincidence? I don't know. Im sticking with motorcraft. I get better fuel mileage with it anyway.

Just speaking on the fuel mileage portion of your post. I cant believe that the difference between one oil and the next is enough to reflect in a increase or decrease of fuel mileage. It would have to be so slight that most people would never notice the difference. That being said, I will be switching to motorcraft at my next oil change.

Just got my 1st oil change on Monday and questioned the service writer when I got my receipt because it said 10w30. She said the 2011's and newer use 10w30. Drove from Kannapolis,NC to Danville,VA and back as soon as I left the dealership and no typewriter noise here.
