Dropped the truck off for the warranty work on the egr valve and the dealer had the truck for a couple days but replaced the valve and housing. Long story short I get home and the engine is ticking at idle goes away when u accelerate calling the dealer tomorrow anyone else having this problem? Also steering is grinding when slowly turning and it was not like this when I brought the truck in for the warranty work. Thanks

First, welcome to the forum and if you have time feel free to start a thread in the New Member Introductions section. Great to have you aboard! I haven't heard of either of those issues and it sounds like you may be headed back to the dealer. A few random thoughts on my part first though.

I think they may remove a section of the steering shaft for easier access to the egr valve. I am not positive on this. If they did, perhaps it didn't get replaced properly. This is easy to see from above so give it a look with the hood open. Also look at the repair area closely. It is tight in there and it is easy for a component to not get firmly reattached.

Others should be along soon with comments, hopefully we can be of some assistance to you in your work to keep your truck running like new!

@Stavi27 - steering issue most likely related to 20E04 recall work, as they need to remove the steering shaft for unfettered access to the EGR cooler assembly. Check your parts list to ensure there is a Bolt listed = this is a one-time use that must be replaced (cannot be re-used). @Laytunes just mentioned that his steering is much better after his 20E04 recall = he is thinking that they didn't reassemble his steering assembly after the first 18E02 recall.

As for the engine ticking at idle, I don't see what in the 20E04 recall could be the root cause of this. Only reports of engine ticking that I recall is after Ford rebuilt the oil pump in @lawdog's truck in attempt to fix Low Oil Pressure Message? which we have since determined is being caused by the nub on the rubber stopper in the oil filter assembly being sheared off by improper filter installation. #SaveTheNub! #SnubTheRub!

I'd bring it back to your dealer and report neither existed prior to 20E04 warranty work and let them diagnose. Please report back with anything they may find on either issue!

Are you sure you're not in Regen? you will hear your DEF injector at idle if your truck is doing a regen.
