clunking sound in oil pan
JA: My old Jeep sounds like a steam radiator sometimes. It must be old age. The Ford Mechanic will know what your noise means and what to do about it. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.
Customer: Oil was way low I thought I heard the rockers clunking, I refilled the oil with 5W-20. It seemed to help but driving to work I heard it again. Folks at AutoZone told me its in the bottom and before I drove home (5 miles) the clunk became a loose part sound in the pan. I eased the truck into the driveway where nit sits no
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: I relalize to open the drian pan to do a visual inspection I will need to back off the transmission
, undo the starter
, disconnect the transmission, remove the mounting bolts anf lift the engine
about 2-3 inches. I done stuff like this before. I have even changed out a transmission on a 1993 Ranger manual transmission
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Ford Mechanic should know about your Ford?
Customer: It used to be a fleet vechicle and the last time I checked the oil was three months ago.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.
