it makes a hard to describe noise only if you push the pedal past halfway (like to accelerate to merge with traffic)
when cruising or putting around town, quiet as a mouse.
Has anyone had engine or exhaust system to body contact that made a noise during acceleration? Anything typical I should look for? Has anyone had issues that were cured by replacing motor mounts? and what is that baby shock absorber that you can see in the driver's side front wheel well??
the little shock is ford's attempt and muffling some of the motor's rattling. V6's aren't very harmonically balanced, couple that with it always wanted to twist off the motor mounts and wahhlaahh, small shock is supposed to fix all that.....rolls eyes lol
I think my truck does the same thing...it sounds and runs more rough above a certain RPM value, and I never could figure out what it was. so I just left it....
How much louder does your's get?
