Hey folks,

The best first step is to get your vehicle to the dealership so they can inspect. Ford certified techs are specially trained to track down mystery noises like this one.

I hope to pick it up tomorrow and will post more details once I know more.
Thanks for sharing your diagnosis, kam327! Hopefully this will help out the other folks when they go in for service.

Have a great day, everyone!
