Hmm, I don't see it in my inbox. That's strange. Can you please send it again?

That one I did get. :) I'm not sure why your first never went through. Thanks for the update! I'll look into this shortly and PM you back.

Thank you very much. The funny thing is it hasn't been doing it as much since the weather cooled off. I just hope I can duplicate the issue when I take it in to the dealership.

So I dropped the car off yesterday morning at 8:00 AM when they opened and got a call at 5:00 PM when they were closing saying that they needed the car longer. I guess the mechanic that they have needs to get a "like car" to compare the two transmissions to figure out what the issue is. I'm going to go pick it up today and take it back on Monday 12/8 at which time I will get a rental car until they are done fixing it.

Kind of a pain in the ass but they are being accommodating after a bit of push back. I'm not sure why they can't do it this Monday or what took him so long to determine that he's going to need the car longer.

So back to the dealership on 12/8 and hopefully they can figure it out quickly.

I've had the whole "take it back and bring it back later" stuff too. Pretty common at the ford dealers.

Keep us posted please! I have that same sound and am wondering what it is as well!

The car is back at the dealership now. I had forgotten something in my car and when I went back to get it I was actually able to speak with the technician who was working on the car and he couldn't replicate the issue. I told him to take the car for a drive and come back so hopefully he can figure it out without wasting too much of my gas.

So the dealership called me up last night to let me know that they got the like car and ran them both and compared the sound of the engine and that the (this is the important part) faint rattle noise is normal operation. So I explained to the guy on the phone (of course this is now after the mechanic has gone home) that the noise is not faint. I can hear it inside the cabin of the car just fine.

Anyhow I picked up the car last night and drove it home, parked it, put it in neutral, lifted my foot off the clutch and...rattle rattle rattle rattle

I made a video and I'm going to go to the dealership tomorrow or Friday after work again to see if I can replicate it for them so they can hear it properly. Maybe I'm wrong and it is normal but it just seems too loud to be normal.

Does it always do this or does it come and go? Is it worse when you first start it?
