That's what the general consensus is. Ive read so much I'm no closer to a starting point. Ford said to replace the motor, and they only did a comp. diagnosis. I call bs. They didn't visually inspect anything inside motor. How can they determine that without even checking crank play? Weird thing is truck runs perfect.
Unfortunately I did. At a dealer. I took it for a test drive. Didnt notice any issue at all. In fact the truck is in immaculate shape. Runs perfect. EXCEPT when I back in my driveway when it's hot. And I kind of have to induce the noise in the video by playing with rpms and shifting from neutral to reverse. I'm fighting with the dealer as we speak. They offered a Jasper motor and want me to pay $3000 for it. F that. I had the truck for a month. They have to do better.
