Question about 2006 Ford F-150
Try to start truck and got a pop sound. now when i try all i hear is the bendix actuating followed by a high pitched squeal
Pull the stater and check the teeth on the geat and also check the flywheel teeth, it sounds like the starts is not engaging the teeth of the flywheel.

Check your battery first. Cold weather does horrible things to car batteries... if it's more of a grinding sound I would say that your starter gear is bad. I believe they call it a ring gear? I had a similar problem with a kushman scooter that I use to deliver snowcones through the neighborhoods. It has teeth that need to engage and if those teeth have been grinded down it will have a hard time engaging....

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com my name is David.
It sounds like the serpentine belt slipping possibly from either a weak belt tensioner or
your alternator may be trying to lock up look at your belt to make sure it is good and tight
and there isnt no signs of wear or cracking if all that looks good my suggestion is have your
alternator checked out at your local part store.

I'd check the passenger side mirror first, make sure it is tight to the window frame, no gaps. It causes a wind noise or whistle. It could be from the outside of the truck, try to pin point. Does noise go away with either window down? Does noise get louder turning in one direction (wheel bearing)? Does it get worse then seem better (could be tire noise)? Eliminate fan motor, and radio. Does it get worse with vehicle speed or just engine speed?
