    So, about 20 miles after the oil change im hearing a slight knocking sound. This happens when I am at a stop light in Drive, it also happens when I put it in Reverse and hold the brake, when I put the truck back in Parking Gear no noise, is this normal? ... Could this type of oil change do this AMSOIL 100% synthetic 5W 30? Has anyone experience this noise?? Please advised if its normal or not. Thanks
