Hi Folks
Sad to report that my '14 Big Horn, at 188k km, is at the side of the hwy awaiting a tow to the shop. Heard a knock develop and on the way to the shop it got very loud and immediately pulled over.

Anyone else experience this?
All hwy driven, minimal towing with small boat, babied this thing....

Hate to hear that @Nanooser . What was your oil change intervals? What oil did you run? Not that I think it matters but I'm curious. I'm assuming the truck was all stock with no engine tune or anything?

I ran it close to the recommended limit, never over and ensured the correct grade of oil was used. No modifications. The only thing out of the ordinary that I did prior to hearing a change in the engine sound was using a fuel additive recommended by my dealers service Dept. for cleaning the fuel system.
