    V10 Specific Topics
    She doesn't sound good. 1500 to 2500 in neutral and or drive, it knocks a lot. Hoping it was the purge valve but not a chance. Exhaust leak at the manifold? Figure if it was rod or such it would make the noise throughout the power band? All other aspects of truck are great. Idles perfect...
