    I have the same problem. It sounds like a valve shuttering or a gargling noise, coming from inside the top of the intake, right where the air intake hose screws onto the throttle body intake port. ?????

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Noise from front drive shaft area. U joints are good and does not do it all the time. More noticeable on accel.

First Examine the air intake tube( the big black one).there are two silencer chambers on it-one on the side by the elbow and one underneath. I f either one is missing, when the Idle Air Controller (IAC) opens to compensate for the A/C compressor cycling it will make a gurgling/thrumming/roaring sound. if this does not fix it, check around intake/throttle body for loose connections.

Car makes a thrumming noise at 65mph


It could be that your shocks need to be looked at. I'm not sure what the specific repair would be though.

Sounds like a cylinder misfire to me. Scan your computer system for fault codes. If no codes are present, you can use mode 6 data to determine which cylinder or cylinders are not contributing and diagnose and repair accordingly.

Why does my rpm rev while stopped at a traffic light?


There are so many things but here are a few to check.

  1. With the engine running raise the hood and see if you hear any hissing sound. What you are looking for is a vacuum leak. The vacuum leak caused the idle to raise.
  2. Use a can of fuel injection cleaner and spay around the intake area while it is running. If you hit a spot that makes the idle come down a little, test it a few times to verify. You have found a leak probably in the intake gasket area.
  3. Have a scan done. you could have a problem with the idle air control, air temp sensor, or egr. If it says egr, it is more likely an item called the DPFE. There were so many of them replaced in the late 90's and early 2000's that you almost never replace the egr it was always the DPFE. (it is cheaper than the egr too.)
Hope this helps

2003 Mercury Mountaineer with 4.6L is loosing coolant, no steam coming out of tail pipe or fluid leaking on the ground. The dealer thinks it intake manifold or head gasket. The hot oil light has come on...


dont know of any head gasket concerns, usually when the intake manifold leaks it either split and pours out or the heater hose fittings crack and leak. Check the hose connections at the intake and make sure none of the hose clamps have cracked and are leaking
