I have a 95 F350 4X4 PSD. It has a horrible engine noise that sounds like somthing inside the engine is coming loose. I have only had the truck for about 500 miles and its been the same. When you are driving at a steady speed the noise is there. IF you accelarate it goes away. AND IF YOU ARE PARKED AND TURN THE STEARING WHEEL TO THE RIGHT THE NOISE GOES AWAY. we have spent hours tightning and greasing everthig on the frame and running gear, but nothing???? PLease help

remove the belt and see if it still does it, could be a tensioner or something coming apart. If you remove the belt and start it up for a second and the noise isn't there, you know you need to be looking at what the belt is on, tensioners, water pump, alternator, fan clutch, etc.
don't drive it with the belt off, just let it idle for less than a minute, and see what you hear then.

Is it an automatic transmission or a manual transmission?
Describe more of the horrible engine noise.
Is it a shaking rattling noise? A knock thumping noise?

IS an automatic, stock suspension, the noise is like a large vibrating noise, like a bad roller bearing, with no grease, you step on the gas and it goes away...UNTILL the engine reaches cruse speed and it reappears again, give it more throttle and it dissaperas, with the stearing turnd to the right, at idle it stops.

do you have an after market downpipe? even the stocker can hit the firewall so. I would give the down pipe a once over, an exhaust hanger may have rusted and broke so its putting extra weight on there.

I would look at all the pulleys, the idea mentioned above of to take of the serpentine belt and see what happens, is good for that.

Check your engine flywheel flexplate for being cracked. Pull the dust cover on the bell housing and take a peek.
