1995 Ford F-150 Question: my truck is making a knocking noise
the knocking noise in the engine is messed up i first noticed the knock when i would turn the steering all the way to the right or left only then it started knocking all the time at idle but if i turn the distributor i can make the knock go away when retarding or make it constant if i advance it but when retarded and driving if i give it a lot of gas it will knock when the truck shifts between low and second when the r.p.m. drops it never did this until the timing gears went and i replaced them and had to remove the oil pan to clean it also had to pull tranny to remove oil pan when i was done it ran good at first then it would not down shift when taking off so i would have to manually shift to low 2 to take off but that has since stopped and the knock started about a week or 2 after - futuretech
