Ok, So I Get In My Truck This Morning, Crank It Up And Take Off. I Get About A Mile Down The Road And I Start To Here This Clanking Noise Every So Often. Granted, This Is The Coldest Morning We Have Had So Far 33 Degrees. Its An 06 With Only 17000 Miles On It. So I Was Wondering If This Is Just Because Of The Cold Or Is It A Problem That I Need To Consult The Ford Place About?

Put the tranny in drive , hold one foot on the brake , and touch the throttle a little.
If it starts to rattle , shut it off and check the insides of the fan shroud for scrape marks.If the fan is hitting the shroud , chances are you have a broken engine mount.

well you can get a stethescope from harbor freight for $10 or less and that can narrow down internal noise... maybe a loose bracket?
