Question about 1999 Ford Expedition
I have an 97 ford expedition. i have it for 6 years now and it runs great. but the other day i was driving i heard this pop sounf as if something blew off from being underpressure. i didnt see no visable signs of damage and the truck run normal as usual up until a drive and a hour later. i started hearing this flaping sound like the tuck was rolling on a flat tire or a flag whipping in the wind. once again i pulled over and checked every where trying to see whats wrong. it only made that sound when i was driving which made me believe it was something with the tires didnt see a thing. the truck still ran fine and that sound went away shortly. now this pop and flap sound happened once before about a year after i bought it, only that time it pop and flap flap all at once. so obviously what ever it is cant be critical cause 5 years later it still running strong. i just wonder what is that
I had the same sound that you mentioned. I found it to be the roof rack sliding backwards. Tightened it and the noise went away. Occasionally, it will make the same noise, depending on the wind, but I have always found it to be stopped by tightening the roof rack. Hope this helps.
