    No sounds of knocking or anything out of the ordinary. Felt like a misfire while driving up a hill and then the check engine light came on so I took it to the dealer. Dealer said the computer picked up a cam phaser code and now they need to verify the code by physically looking into the cam.

    Yes, they replaced them. I've had the truck for about 700 miles since the repair. Leaking oil and engine light back on. Taking it back tomorrow morning.

    Ford has already offered me a repurchase or replacement.

    What's going on with yours?

    Mine has settled down with the noises, my fans stay on longer than I like at start lately and some weird alarms will go off and auto/stop wasnt working for a few days. New battery time ? I am hearing these batteries use up fast and especially with aftermarket lights etc
