Then I sold the truck about a 6 months ago.

PS. some of you really need to learn how to communicate in a readable way. 6 lines of non-punctuated text is just worthless.

The only thing I had was an initial rattle but it went away after the first start up. Now if I could just get rid of this knock and ping under heavy throttle. I'm on my second tank of fuel system cleaner. At least I can run with 87 now instead of a higher grade...

have you tried sea foam? I've used it on all my rigs and it always seems to help clean em out. My friends and a lot of people on here like it too.
