Just got this truck yesterday! I love it, except that
engine noise is driving me absolutely crazy! On top of
that, the dealer's people are shining me on, telling me,
"they all do that...can't fix something that isn't
wrong...I don't hear it....I can't hear anything....if you
had the one with the cast iron block, you wouldn't hear
that...it's the injectors, they all make that sound, some
less than others, some none,....I definately hear
it....[then mum when all the rest of the guys are around].
I believe its getting louder just today, and the salesman,
an hour ago admitted to hearing it. Finally, some
I had the day off today, unexpectedly. I've put only 250
miles on it. I took it down to one of the lead men
mechanics where I work, and though he didn't know what to
make of the noise, he noticed the crank pulley was running
out badly. I pointed that out to the salesman, and he told
me to bring it in my next day off and leave it a day.
I don't know about you people, but for $34,000.00, I don't
think you should be able to sit in a quiet spot, in an
otherwise quiet truck and hear a rhythmic clanking bell
sound coming from the engine compartment. They've got
their money. Am I going to have to settle for this truck
if there is something wrong with it? I just don't feel
comfortable with that.
Have you heard any similar experience? Thanks for reading.
I feel sick.
