Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles
i was driving at about 35, driving smooth! Heard a little pop, thought I ran over something but didn't see anything. I then heard a knocking sound, so I pulled over, thinking no oil, afraid of throwing the rod threw the block. Plenty of oil, in need of an oil change but still had oil. When I open the hood I heard the knocking(more like tinging) but more important it sounded like air blowing. You know when you shoot a paintball gun at high pressure with no paintballs. That sound is in sync with the knocking. Engine smells a little like exhaust? The exhaust from the tailpipe is not steady either. Any ideas or thoughts would help!
p.S. Trunk starts fine and there were no changes with gauges.(Oil pressure/temp)
have the same problem?
