If the engine is not started the noise keeps up for a few minutes then quits.

When we asked the Dealer, they really couldn't tell us what what was making
the noise but assured us that it was normal...
Hi WilliamT,

If possible, take your vehicle for a test drive with the Service Advisor sitting next to you. If you can replicate the noise while they are in the vehicle with you, they'll have a better shot at accurately diagnosing your concern. Also, as whynotthinkwhynot stated, swinging by a different Ford dealership for a second opinion is an option as well.

Feel free to contact me via PM if you have any other questions or concerns. I'm happy to see how I can help!

Thanks for the good info, whynotthinkwhynot!

Have a great day,
