When Ford replaced your motor, did they use the heads off of your old engine? If they did, this will almost confirm that the heads are the cause of the death rattle. I made the call of the noise being in the heads the first time I heard the noise. If it was piston slap due to piston design, all 2001's would make the noise. I read on a thread here that someone had their driver side head replaced and noise went away and car ran like a raped date. My Pops completely ruled out piston slap/detonation as the cause of this noise. His word is good enough for me because he does know his stuff. I have an appointment for thursday and I'll let you guys know how it goes. Late.
