I dont know where the oil is leaking. The knock is in the lower part of the motor from what it sounds like, when I rev it its not as noticable. It also ticks when it gets almost a quart low. Then when we just got alot of snow, I got stuck and went to use the 4 wheel for the first time and it makes the noise when you turn the switch on the dash, you here a clunk and feel the truck jerk a bit but no power to the wheels. Its an XLT not an Eddie bower. As far as money I may be getting some, enough to afford a reman if thats a better choice. Just want to make sure whatever I do it lasts. I switched to synthetic oil as well. When I changed the oil the oil lines looked wet with oil, havent looked again though. As far as the 4 wheel someone told me to check the vacuum lines and I have no idea where to find them and have checked everywhere. I'm In Choconut Pa I paid 4800 for this not even a month ago. It had HID's remote start, backup camera with monitor in rear view mirror, dvd, rear tail lights and front were changed to euro lights, and has a custom stereo. Now the check engine light came on yesterday, and the ABS light has been on since I bought it.
