How many miles on it? The HPFP does make some noise as it is cam driven - could be that I suppose but it seems pretty loud. Mine was bad like yours when I brought it in for phasers to be replaced, the SA said he is sure that is phaser related noise but they would check it out once the valve covers were off. When I got the truck back it sounded like a new motor it idled so quietly.

I always thought plasterers were at start up? This continues all day. Also has new phasers maybe 5k miles ago.
I got 120k miles now

Yeah me too. I mean, I did have really bad phaser noise at startup too but as I let it go for a long while, my idle sounded like yours in addition to the loud ticking/knocking noise at idle.

Thanks. I got an appointment Wednesday. Sucks my warranty recently expired. But I had phasers done maybe 5k miles ago so hopefully it’s all related and covered.
