Just started to hear a deep knock. It is a bit louder now that it's about 10 deg. but I could also hear it when it was 30 deg. F.
Is it possible to pull the oil pan and change out the rod bearings or is this a ridiculous idea?
I have known people who have done this and got another year out of there motor.
I really don't want to pull the car out of storage until all the salt is off the road so I can either try to swap the bearings or ride it out until spring and continue looking for a crate or low millage motor.
The 5.4 has 175,000 on it and runs strong as ever but has the knock. The body and the rest of the truck is in great shape so I have to keep it.
Any suggestions would be great.
