Turn the air conditioner off and back on and see if it makes that noise when you do that. If it does, the little door that directs the flow is controlled by a gear which probably has a couple teeth broke off and that is the motor trying to get the door into position. Nothing major, just sounds strange.

If it does, the little door that directs the flow of air in the dash is controlled by a gear/motor which probably has a couple teeth broke off and that is the door shutting as the motor continues to try to get the door into position. Nothing major, just sounds strange.

My Ford Five Hundred is vibrating and cutting off. The lights indicate engine and then the battery light comes on and car shuts completely off. I took it to a mechanic who stated it was the Motor mount and the MAP sensors. What causes this to happen?

Usually a knocking sound indicates that there is either a rod blown, if it is a ticking sound it could be your heads are not tight on enough.

Rattling noise coming from oil pan checked all areas with a stethoscope, seams to be loudest here any ideas?


Clacking or rattling from that area could be due to a connecting rod knock, or the oil pan could just be acting as an amplifier for a sound coming from somewhere else in the engine.

Knocking noise from rear end


If car is rear wheel drive.....Check you Universal joints on your driveshaft

Could also be Trailing Arm bushings.if you have coil Springs on your rear axle. These bushings keep the axle from rotating. So when you do that Clutch jumpy thing the axle is trying to rotate and with bad bushings it could be 'banging'

Knocking noise coming from fuel tank area


sounds like your vent is plugged up or broken, so when you drive you create a vacuum and the fuel tank is being pulled in, thus the banging I just had a car with this issue, and I had to pull the tank out of the car and had to the show the customer before he would believe me, but seeing IS believing as they say. When you shut off the engine the vacuum decays and thus the tank reverses its process. Try driving your car with the fuel cap off and see if the noise goes away. That will prove it!
(also)- small leak in the tank
and finally try changing the gas cap itself
let me know
thanks

Loud knocking/banging inside dash/glovebox


We had the same issue on our 2009 Flex. The problem was the motor or the gate (I can't remember which) that switches where the air comes out for the climate control. Took it to the dealer and had it replaced under warranty. It didn't take long (maybe 30min - 1hr).

It seemed like the system had a built-in fail safe that shut the motor down after a few seconds when the gate didn't make it to the desired selection. If you change the blower around when the fan is running (e.g. switch from floor to bi to dash to defrost), you'll probably hear the thumping come back as the gate tries to move, but can't.

Fuel shut off


There is no fuel shutoff on a vehicle. Ford did play with the idea of having a shutoff switch and that is normally located in the glove compartment or in one of the panel compartments in the back of the vehicle. If your fuel pump is not working that is most likely the pump itself or a blown fuse or relay. Both are located in the power distribution box under the hood of the vehicle.

Loud knocking noise comming from engine?


1995 Ford Windstar 3.8L Engine Knocking noise on top side of engine near center of Air Plenum. Engine was completely rebuilt 2 years ago (28,000 miles on Re-Built Engine/ 156,000mile on Van). Coolant level is SAT, Engine oil level is Sat. Van was driven 2800 miles since last oil/filter change. Engine started surging as van slowed down to make a stop then engine shut off. Restarted engine and heard knocking noise. Shut engine off immediately. The oil light flickers on dash with engine running. Do fuel injectors make tapping noises when degraded? Is it possible hydraulic lifter not able to leak down or does not fill with oil? Oil pressure issue with the dash light flickering? I can see if the engine has allot of miles on it, the intake and exhaust valves begin to leak-by how ever this not the issue. Where do you start to locate engine knock noise? How is oil pressure checked to see if pressure is too low? Any help where to start would be appreciated.

Turned of car, will not start it turns over, but doesn't seem to be getting any fuel


Try A SMALL SHOT Of Starting Fluid Sprayed into the Snorkel
Intake @ Air filter. If it Starts and Does NOT Run After Burning Starting Fluid the Fuel Pump Has Failed. (My Personal Hunch) is (FUEL PUMP FAILURE) BE SURE TO ELIMINATE THE INERCIA SWITCH< it is a fuel shut off switch >>>>> WARNING: Do not reset the inertia switch button if you see or smell fuel.

  1. Turn ignition switch to OFF.
  2. Check for leaking fuel in the engine compartment, fuel lines and fuel tank.
  3. If no fuel is apparent, reset the inertia fuel shutoff switch by pushing the reset button on top of switch.
  4. Turn ignition switch to START for a few seconds, then to OFF.
  5. Again, check for leaking fuel.
LOCATION


  1. Open luggage compartment door.
  2. Remove two screws retaining inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  3. Disconnect wiring harness connector from inertia fuel shutoff switch and remove inertia fuel shutoff switch.
  4. To install, reverse removal procedure.
