A little update I swapped out the Flex plate even though it looked ok and torque converter the noise was still there and I damaged a 120$ sensor so had to replace that, after lots of reading and researching also picking the brain of a Ford mechanic where my cousin works I've inspected the cams tensioners and pulleys and they all look ok, with the valve cover removed inspected the rockerarms and rods Cam was not scored and everything looked ok there. Prior to the transmission work I had the noise but no Engine codes after the sensor got damaged I got 3 codes a P0010 Intake Camshaft position sensor actuator bank 1 where I changed out the VCT solenoid and the Camshaft sensor. P2106 Throttle actuator control sensor Where I swapped out the throttle body and the P0175 Input shaft speed sensor as I mentioned the transmission sensor I damaged swapped all those out cleared the codes and went for a drive and she drives quite nicely felt great but the noise is still there no codes came back. I plan on doing a exaust check when the weather cooperates. I was suggested it could be a Rod bearing or a terminal Main bearing. Anyone ever had this before? what are the symptoms? I would naturally think if it were main bearings it would be loud consistently and probably shake the piss outta the truck? I could be wrong. Ive tried alot of different things with no result with the noise!! at some point I got to give up and replace the engine but it would still be nice to know the root cause. I have no noticeable symptoms other than the noise so It's hard to convince me I need a new engine..But im getting close.. so overall review,Starter, Altenator new, Flexplate transmission new, Timing chains tensioners guides new, VCT solenoid changed new. Input shaft sensor changed new, Throttle body New, Camphasers good, Fuel Injectors are all pumping, Spark Plugs are all firing, Rocker arms good. Manual Oil pressure test through the Oil sender by the Oil filter at hot idle was about 29 psi. Lol any input would be greeeattt!
