truck is bogging and ticking when it gets hot on the highway. ideas?
When I drive about 30 km on the highway I start to hear a loud ticking sound (like a lifter) and when I press on
the gas it boggs like I I can't get gas to it, then it cools down and stops
Thermostat is not functioning properly, Coolant Level is Low, Oil needs to be changed....has this engine cooked in a past life and has the water jacket buggered up with rust? are you runnin with water instead of coolant? that'd ironize it up plenty.
New thermostat new Rad new water pump new pcv new plugs and wires fuel filter changed 3 years ago
the ticking may be detonation from hot carbon a piston destroyer, ever look at catalytic when doing this may be red hot ,partial plugged with carbon also
Hmmmm, electric fan isn't comin' on (if you've got one)~
