    kind of grinding noise, it starts when I drive at least 2 or 3 miles at steady sounds more than when accelerating. Also when accelerating it looks like its sounding less.

It sounds like the big end bearings, it is not easy to diagnose a noise by letter so I would advise getting more than one trained "ear" to listen to it.

Why does the 98 expedition 5.4 triton egine makles a ticking sound at 2-3 rpm


1. Make sure you have a detailed description of the noise is concerned with, including whether the noise is occurring at idle or above idle speed (does it disappear above 1,200 rpm), and if the engine is cold, hot or both when the noise is occurring. These engines generate a lot of "normal" noises 2. Determine what environment is in when the noise is most noticeable to them (inside passenger compartment, next to building with/without the driver and/or passenger window open, or beside the wheel well). Validate by using your own perception. 3. Compare the noise generated with a new vehicle, if available, with an ENGINE build date of 3/30/2005 or later on Mustang and 4/18/2005 or later on F-150 to F-350, Expedition and Navigator vehicles. if the noise is the same, the noise is normal and would be a characteristic of the vehicle. Do not continue with this bulletin. 4. Diagnose noise when engine is at normal operating temperature. Verify oil temperature by using a diagnostic scan tool and monitoring the engine oil temperature. 5. Check the type of oil filter installed on the vehicle. A dirty or clogged filter may cause a pressure drop. Look for aftermarket brands not recognized in the market or a production filter that has gone beyond the standard Ford recommended change interval. 6. Check for signs of oil brand used and viscosity.

My Lincoln continental starts cold fine but when it gets hot or normal running temp it starts to loose power and feels like the tranny is slipping. When I turn it of and start it back up I have to give it...


SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE A TEMPERATURE PROBLEM, HOOK UP SCANNER AND CHE THE TEMPERATURE ON THE ENGINE, DOES IT GET HOT QUICK, LIKE A CLOSE THERMOSTAT, IS IT LOW ON FLUID, DOES THE TEMPERATURE SENSOR READ OVER 200 WHEN WORM, DO YOU SEE THE TEMPERATURE GO BACK DOWN TO 15 OR LESS, ES TEMPERATURE GOES UP, LESS AND LESS GAS GOES INTO THE ENGINE IS INJECTOR SENS LESS AND LESS FUEL, THE TEMP SHOULD BE 180 TO 210 OVER THIS MEANS THE THERMOSTAT IS CLOSED OR THE WATER PUMP IS NOT CIRCULATING ANY COOLANT, BELOW 180 MEANS THE THERMOSTAT IS ALWAYS OPEN.

When I starts the engine at the early morning while cool, I hear a sound from engine. But hot engine I cannot hear that sound.


most likely your engines making a noise because of the oil gets thick when it gets cold. when it heats up it gets thinner. so when you start it cold its running roughly and that the noise you hear. its completely normal don't worry.

Heater dos'nt get hot


First check the coolant level if low add, second start the vehicle let it run when it reach the normal temperature. Locate the heater core hoses front the engine side. Feel them with your hand. Check for a difference in the temperature of the hoses. If both hot it works but if one hot one cold it's mean heater core clogged.

2000 malibu runs hot if not warmed up


How do you know it gets hot? Are you going by the temperature gauge on the dash? Or have you checked under the hood and found out the engine really is running hot? ...Reason I ask is, something just doesn't sound right in your description. After just 5 minutes from starting and driving away, the engine would not yet be at normal operating temperature. That would explain the heater not yet warm. But the temp. gauge says hot?
If so, I would replace the temperature sending unit on the engine. the one for the dash gauge, and see if that was the problem-not reading the temp. accurately.
Couple of other things: Are you sure you got all the air out of the coolant system? Start the car with the radiator cap off and let it run until the engine is warmed up fully, then shut it off and install the cap. Does your reservoir tank stay about half full where it should be, between the full-hot and full-cold marks?
If your problem persists. I would have the coolant system pressure tested, and see if you could get a true temperature reading of the coolant when it seems to be running hot.
Good luck.

hi it sounds like the engines electric cooling fan has automatically come on as the engine has got hot enough for it to be cooled down
you may have never noticed it before .
check your coolant level and your oil level to be on the safe side and keep an eye on the temperature gauge the fan should come on when the gauge goes past normal running teperature if its coming on a lot there may be a problem but its probably working as normal
