  • 1998 FORD RANGER
I have a 1998 ford ranger 3.0 and it is making a very loud knock/screach. I have taken the serpinteen belt off and it still makes the noise. I have taken the oil pan off and replaced the crank and rod bearing and the oil pump. I didnt see any metal shavings in the bottom of the pan. After I put it all back together it still makes the noise. It sounds like it is coming from under the intake manifold. The oil levels are perfect. I can not find out the problem for the life of me. So could you help me out.
Do you
have the same problem?

Can you record the sound then PM me I will give you my email. And I will listen to the noise, but if you dug that deep, it sounds like you know your way around a wrench!

Nope man no turbo it is only a 3.0 liter v 6 with only 60,000 miles. I was wondering could it possibly be the oil pressure relief valve?
