The video that trippen1999 showed of the clatter on start up is identical to what my bosses 2011 f150 ecoboost would do almost every morning on cold start ups starting at around 70,000 miles and he just traded it in with 150,000 miles still running strong. Other than the annoying noise on cold start up it caused no other affects to the engine for 80,000 miles, at least noticable any way.
That's interesting because after a while my truck started running in limp mode. Significantly reduced power, a weird sound made by the wastegates opening and of course a constant check engine light.

I wouldn't think so but anything is possible. I think he was just trying to low ball me. The nada paper he was trying to show me didn't even have all the options my truck had. Nada says the rough trade on my truck is 26,800. That's all I'm asking for it. The truck is in very good condition. Not beat up no scratches no dings or don't new tires. It has every option except the navigation. All maintenance is up to date everything works. I take care of my vehicles.
My driveway has a slope, and is still very spotty when it does make the rattle on start up but it has done it parked both ways. On another note, has anybody noticed how much condensation comes out of the exhaust weep hole when it does rattle. The other day when it rattled bad a lot of condensation came out of the weep hole. Today, no rattle, no condensation.
I am starting to think its the turbo I have had my truck back from the shop since Thursday and it yet has to rattle. If it makes it thru the weekend its definitely fixed. mine only did ever 4-5 cold start ups.
