Question about 2006 Ford F-150
MY TRUCK STARED KNOCKING AND THE OIL PRESSIRE GAUGE DROPED TO 0 THE TRUCK RUNS NORMAL INTILL U HIT 40KH THEN STARTS KNOCKING REALLY LOUD
STOP DRIVING IT UNTIL YOU DETERMINE WHERE THE PROBLEM IS!
If the oil pressure dropped and then the knocking started very shortly after that, your engine is receiving NO lubrication or cooling from the circulation of the oil.
Your engine will seize and cost a ton more than it must if you continue to drive it.
What you are hearing is most likely rod bearings and the rattle comes when they no longer have a cushion of oil to keep the metal parts from hammering each other.
Either you have a catastrophic oil leak and have lost most of your oil or your oil pump has failed - the latter is very unusual in a truck only a couple of years old unless it is high mileage already - 100,000 miles/160,000 km or more.
If you are not famliar enough to know NOT to drive it, you won't be repairing that yourself either.
