Over the last few weeks I've been encountering a new problem on my '18 SV (around 54k miles) - when I start the truck there is one loud knock, but not every time I start. It's a dieseling type sound...like if the engine was dieseling at shutdown, but just one single knock. I can't pinpoint what is different anytime it happens. Anyone else experience anything like this?

Are you using an aftermarket oil filter? Lots of the aftermarket filters lack the anti-dranback valves these engines require, and would cause exactly this kind of thing.

Either OEM or NAPA Gold are the filters to use.

I use whatever filter is on sale at the store (Fram is my go-to but I use Purolator or Carquest too). I will definitely give that a try though...can't hurt. Thanks!
