Question about 2005 Ford F-150

1 Answer

Clunking and grinding noise

On 2 seperate occasions about 2 weeks apart driving along in 2 wheel drive a loud clunk noise followed by a grinding noise for about 10seconds and then a loud clunk noise again and then it goes away. There is no odor when this happens and does not seem to effect the drive train but does seem to be coming from the front end. It is a 2005 F150 FX4 perhaps the sound of gears meshing? ANY THOUGHTS ON WHAT IT COULD BE??? Thanks

    the ford ranger does not make a clunking sound but a ringing sound when the car is in motion coming from the front end and when i go over small rocks it seems like the tire is sliding.

My 2003 F150 Supercrew would not engage in 4x4, it ended up being the shifting fork in the front end, cost me $200.

Clunking noise comming from front


check your lug nuts first. if there tight jack the front of the car off the ground, then wiggle the tire left to right and up and down. if you have any play then your wheel bearings are out. if you dont have play then reach around to where your front wheel drive axle attaches and wiggle it in the same fassion. you should have your answer when you do this to both sides

Clunking noise when you turn the steering wheel while driving


The noise will be either the universal joint on the steering column or a component in the steering rack or outer tie rod ends, get someone to sit in the car and move the wheel slightly left and right and have a look and you will be able to see and hear where the noise is coming from

My 85 f150 is making a clunking noise when driving down the road. Sounds like it's coming from the front. The clunk starts when you start moving and and the clunking increases the faster you move. No...


Possible broken belt in one of your tires. Move the 2 front tires to the rear, see if the problem follows the tires. Or run your hand around the circumference of the tires to feel for a bulge. Other, more expensive problems could be in the suspension. A-arm bushings, or wheel bearings.

2004 clunking noise thru steering!


Its probably the intermediate steering shaft. The shaft where it goes thru the firewall is known for clunking on these trucks. GM makes a lube kit to fix the noise. I don't have the part number handy, but the parts guy at the local dealer will know what you are looking for.

Good Luck
