Default click

got a click from the engine when its on, and it sounds like its from the block. as the truck is running, there is a very faint click that can be heard and it doesnt go away. anyone know what that is?

A crankshaft wouldn't click. A crankshaft would clunk, or at the very least clank.
Now a valve train might click, you can take that to the bank.

Default Re: click

cam sensor maybe ?Mine clicked when it was goin out.Your best bet is to get a cheap mechanics stethoscope to narrow it down.
