Sounds like my truck. Exact irregular knocking sound.
Now after dealer had the truck for over a week, I started it up this morning
to listen to the noise. It seems to be lot quieter then before.
I asked service manager if they would possibly put some oil additive in the engine oil to quiet the noise. His reply was that they would use additive in transmission, but they wouldn't put anything in engine oil.
He did not say "No we did not" and I could not get him to repeat that sentence. Kept saying "why would we do that" . I am no psychologist
by any means, but I didn't like the indirect answer.
So I am in contact with a lab and will be sending oil from engine, sample of virgin oil that they would use for oil change and sample of additive that they use if customer requests it (service advisor did say that add it if requested).
The lab said that they cannot always determine additive in oil, but said it is worth the try.
I will post results of the testing and if I find out that they did add any crap into my engine.
BTW I was looking for place on forum that would be appropriate to post experiences with various dealerships and repair shops. Any suggestions MOD ? I think it could be great help to others is we can the word out on how different dealers treat their customers and their vehicles.
What do you think ? I would love to share my story how this dealer messed up my two rims and had truck for 8 days trying to re-finish the damaged rims that now look worse then they did before. Now they are ordering two new rims.
