Engine loud

If this is knocking is coming from within the engine, some possible causes could be using too low grade of fuel (regular vs plus or premium if your vehicle calls for higher grades), some timing issues, needing to replace your spark plugs (may have incorrect or worn out plugs), or plugs & wires if your vehicle has both (some do not), some internal combustion issues, or possibly even problems with rods/bearings. How's your oil pressure??? Are your gauges reading low? This can be a cause! Sometimes vehicles will "knock" if the oil level drops too low, or it may not knock until the oil in the engine has been depleted. (You could be facing serious engine problems if this happens!) If you keep your oil checked and at the accurate levels, and keep it and the filters changed regularly to ensure "clean" oil in your engine, this helps with lubrication of the engine parts, helping with lessening of the wear and tear on the engine, as well as extending the life of your engine. (It is also helpful to let your engine idle for a little while and warm up before driving (especially with rapid acceleration habits) to allow the parts to become lubricated, especially in cold weather). If you try upgrading to plus or premium fuel in your car, and it doesn't help, make sure your engine oil level is okay. If you're unsure, ask your mechanic to check things out for you. You may just need a good tune up. Regular service and maintenance is essential for your vehicle's engine and major components, and also to lengthen the life of your vehicle, especially the older your vehicle is and if it's considered a "high mileage" vehicle. I'm no mechanic but I grew up in a family of mechanics and do know a few things about vehicles. Hope this helps!

ISSUE: Some 2005 Freestyle vehicles may exhibit a water leak at the right front passenger compartment. This may be due to grommet for rear washer fluid line at dash not being fully seated.
ACTION: Inspect windshield washer grommet from inside vehicle under dash and properly seat if out of position. Pull carpet back and reach under bulkhead pad to install. Removal of instrument panel is not required. (Figure 1)

I have a 2005 ford freestyle the ac is fully charged the rear works great the front passenger side is ok but the drivers side is warm about 20 degrees difference between the drivers side an passenger

there is a door that directs cold or hot air behind the dashboard in order to make the passenger's side colder or hotter relative to the driver's side.
The a/c door servo may be bad, or the temperature settings for each zone are not balanced.

2006 Ford Freestyle. It would not start today.

How old is the battery??? Was the battery load tested??? Are the battery connections tight and clean?
If the battery has a short in one of the cells inside, it will not hold enough voltage and eventually drain its self out. Your engine managment components need to have at least 12.0 volts to work correctly, if the battery voltage falls below a specific value, lets say 10.0 volts, the computer will shut down the vehicle. Just a thought, and 5 years from any battery is an outstanding life expectancy, but near it's end.

Passenger Side Mirror Broke Off

No no, you will be able to do this job yourself, on the inside of the door, pop off the plastic cover to reveal the two bolts holding the mirror on, simply undo these, but be very careful not to drop the plug down inside the door.
