  1. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    More vids of the knock: Vid 3: Vid 4: At the end of Vid 4 you can hear it really bad.
  2. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Put in the new vct solenoid and the codes went away as well as misfire on startup codes and random misfire. Still knocking. I’ll post videos in a second. It’s really quiet when the car first starts but after a minute or so becomes pretty loud. When I first fired the car up I thought I fixed the...
  3. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Cranked the car with no valve cover and didn’t see anything obvious. Only the 4 and 5 # cam caps are wrong atleast. Don’t know why I switch those 2 and didn’t catch it…
  4. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Assuming no damage has been done, how should I swap the cam caps? Since it's the 2 rears I am a little concerned about just taking off both rears and swapping them. I know ford says to take off the front cam caps before taking off any of the others to avoid damage. Not sure how much of a...

    Hard to tell from that photo but I think you are right. No idea how I got it wrong because I took reference photos when I took the original cams off… well that sucks. I wonder if I just accidentally swapped those around or if I did the other side wrong too. Edit: checked my photos from when the...
  6. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Typical for a modified car. Lots of people revving even higher. Car has upgraded cams, upgraded springs and retainers, upgraded timing chains, and upgraded tensioners. I would be revving higher but the car doesn’t make more power.

    It’s possible to pull balancer just a big pain in the ass for the reinstall. Easiest way would be to take out vct solenoids and rotate engine to verify secondary timing chain marks are correct. To verify primary you would probably need to pull the whole timing cover off not just the balancer...

    Hard to do when I don’t have the timing cover off. The timing marks only align once every 4 or 8 rotations (can’t remember).

    @Cobra Jet Have you heard of vct issues causing a knocking sound?
  10. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    No i have not yet. And unless the cams jumped timing then I think they were timed correctly. I actually had to re-time it twice because I had to pull the cams off because I forgot the vct filters. I double checked that the timing marks were correct. Car also ran fine for 5.5k miles. I also...

    The cams were previously used. I don't think they were 100% mark free when I installed them. The marks don't concern me too much.
  12. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Nope. I think if this doesn't fix it ill look at compression and use my borescope to check valves. If not compression/valves then I'll look at the oil. If oil looks good maybe ill replace the vct phaser (especially if I continue to get the one code). If not the vct phaser then probably rod or...
  13. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    I thought about doing that, what should I be looking for? The camshaft and everything feels nice and tight and the chains also look tight.
  14. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Pulled the valve covers off and don’t see anything suspicious. I think I am going to replace the vct solenoid and see what that does. The little sparkles on the vct phasers are just some dust that fell in when taking the valve covers off. I checked the oil that’s on the top of the head and...
  15. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Confirmed it is the passenger side intake by unplugging them and seeing which code description matched up. Car revs to about 8100. They are the stock vct solenoids and cam phasers. Totally possible the solenoid failed due to age / abuse.
  16. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    I cleared the codes once but they were those same ones and they just came back.
  17. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Parents house in Mesa, and I live in the dorms at ASU in Tempe
  18. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Here are the codes: P0011, P0103, P0113, P0300, P0316, P061C P0103 and P0113 are for me not having the MAF plugged in cause the intake is off
  19. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Don’t see any oil pressure codes. I’ll post all the codes in a second. And maybe at high engine rpm it was burning oil…
  20. Knock Knock. Who’s there? Rod.

    Haven’t drained oil yet but I plan to. I don’t think coolant mixed with oil inside the engine as I checked that about 1000 miles ago. Maybe they mixed together on the outside after leaking.
