I have a knocking noise in my new ( 2000 )ford diesel. The ford mechanic said it sounds like a rod going out. He checked the ford system and found this is a common problem with all new diesels. Ford may or may not have a fix. They say its a fuel delivery problem on no. 8 cylinder ( a lean burn condition ) Im sick of this rod knocking sound that they cant fix. Is any one else having a similar experience???
