Oh, you're seeing 3 of these crankshafts? Just pick the one in the middle! No one will notice.
They were not building engines.

Just another small update, I took the service manager for a ride and duplicated the sound and he agreed that its not normal and it's not the exhaust causing the problem. So it's going there tomorrow to get looked at again. Also I put the truck on jack stands and put it in drive and made it make the clicking sound... No spicific part is clicking, the entire engine shakes something ferce when it kickin in to 4 banger mod. So I have no idea what it could be.

Also the truck is definitely burning oil, the dealer did an oil change 1.5 weeks ago and the oil Level is already below the safe mark... And it only has 500km on it so far. I have videos of it blowing smoke while driving and I'm not even driving it hard... If I set the cruise to 60km and drive for about 2km's then just touch the throttle it smokes like I'm rolling diesel coal but only whitish grey... I'll post the videos later on tonight...

And one more thing... I think the service manager is on my side even with the mods because I received a cheque in the mail yesterday from the dealership for the money they charged me to look at it te other week when they denied my claim... Hopefully things are starting to look up for me...

Great! However, if it turns sour again, don't take NO for an answer. If they are going to deny your claim because of your exhaust, they need to prove the exhaust is causing, or caused the issue. And in order to prove that, they need to figure out what the issue is. If they don't know what the issue is, how can they say it was caused by exhaust.

Also, document, document, document. Write EVERY conversation down in a document, and write exactly what things were said. If this goes sour, you will need this documentation for CAMVAP.

If this goes sour, I can help you with any questions you have about CAMVAP. I have an open case going myself.

Cliff, I admire your persistence with this issue(s), and I hope things are resolved soon....sounds like someone is on your side now. Maybe they can convince corporate to give you a new motor if necessary.

I don't buy the exhaust excuse and I don't think the Y pipe has anything to do with these problems! I scrapped the stock exhaust including the Y pipe for a custom built with a pair of Flowmasters and I have had no problems at all. Burning that much oil I would expect you're about to get a new engine. Good luck man!

Always a good thing to have your dealership's SM on your side.

Kudos to him.

Now you're clutching at straws.... but I admire your unyielding persistence.

Hmm... have you checked to see if it's been choking down antifreeze with the oil?

So I started an oil consumption report last Thursday and I'm supposed to bring it in every week so the can check it and record anything if they have to.. I have 400 kms on the oil change so far and I brought it in last night after work and it was down 1.5 liters already... So there definitely is something going on inside the engine somewhere... It's at the dealer today for the clicking noise again and most likely the oil problem.
