Unless you do a complete oil change, the oil will be black seconds after you run it. A good portion of old oil is trapped in the head rails and the HPOP reservoir, and doesn't drain. So you have to suck it out and pull the drain plugs to do a full change. Which is of course ridiculous , and nobody does that unless they have some mental issue that requires them to do needless maintenance. lol . If you have removed the valve covers and visually inspected the valve springs, and they are fine. Then too much back pressure is from your exhaust some were. EBPV to tail pipe, something is blocking it. Only other way to build pressure is a broken and stuck exhaust valve, and that would be a definite dead cylinder. Knocking is a funny word, hard to determine what that is. A knock in my car happens when I shut it off and it keeps running from hot carbon build up. Your trucks running real bad if its doing that.
Stiction crap. Don't like it, messes up crap its not meant too. Like real main seal repair crap, it effects everything in the motor it touches. I think it was RT that posted a memo from Ford about and issue with injectors appearing to have stiction problems, but its actually a flaw in the injector. Repaired easily. I will try to find it , but maybe send RT a pm about it.
