I have another question. Is it normal for these engines to make a rattling lifter noise? I grew up around semi trucks but this is the first Diesel that I have owned. The noise is generally noticable when accelerating. Sounds like gas engine lifter noise.
Yes vee, My 03 does the same thing. Sounds like lifters. Been doing it since new. 110k later it's still plowing during storms and towing 7000lbs on the weekends. No worries, just put fuel in it and run it hard.:rockin
