slybarman Thanks. I was more curious than worried. I assumed the car knew what it was doing. :)

Hi slybarman,

You may want to ask your dealer to check out the noise the next time you're in for scheduled maintenance or your next oil change appointment. Ford certified techs are your best bet when it comes to prompt, accurate diagnosis; at the very least, having them inspect the noise will give you some peace of mind.

If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM.

Thanks!

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

We haven't had any problems with anything. Car runs great and everything
works normally.

Anyone know of this noise?

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,
