Yes just goes in the tank. The true cause of the sound needs to be found though so you know exactly what is going on.

I agree that it is probably an exhaust leak. See if you can locate all of your manifold bolts, to see if 1 might be missing. Sometimes there easy to get out, other times there no fun. If you find that is the problem, soak the bolts with some PB Blaster for a couple of days. This will help from possibly braking more.

ok so today i checked all of my mainfold bolts and first off they are all there. i checked around the ports and i dont see any carbon where there might be a leak in the gasket. same with the donut gasket. all seems fine. the truck only has 70K on it and has been garage kept sinse it was new with an oil change ever 3K. so idk what the heck it could be. it almost sounds like it comming from the second plug from the back of the engine on the driversside or the injector. i have fuel cleaner in it and ran er a lil hard today and still hearin it hot or cold

Can't hurt to re torque the plugs and eliminate another thing.

Default Ticks me off

IF YOU GET BAD GAS FROM A FLY BY NIGHT GAS STATION OR SOMETIMES EVEN A REPUTABLE BRAND STATION, THIS CAN AND DOES MANY MANY TIMES CAUSE A TICKING SOUND FROM A CAR MOTOR. IT MAY TAKE 3-4 TANK FULLS TO ELIMINATE THE TICK DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH WATER IS IN YOUR TANK. THIS USUALLY HAPPENS AFTER A HEAVY RAIN ESPECIALLY IN A STATION WITH NOT MUCH TURN OVER AND WHERE TANKS ARE NOT UNDER PERIODIC INSPECTION. TRY PUTTING IN A HEFTY AMOUNT OF ANY RECOMMENDED FUEL ADDITIVE WHICH DISPERSES WATER AND GIVE ER' A GO. I'VE BEEN DRIVING FOR OVER 55 YEARS AND SEEN A LOT WHEN IT COMES TO BAD GAS. I ALWAYS USE 'MARVEL MYSTERY OIL' AS AN ADDITIVE IN ALL MY ENGINES AND IT IS AN ADDITIVE WHICH HAS GOOD MARKS ON MANY IF NOT ALL MECHANIC WRITEUPS.
