HI,When do you hear the noise - when idling and engine fan running, when accelerating and the noise coincides with increasing speed(rotational)
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No most of the time whatever the car is doing, idling, accelerating or and anything else I do, drives me crazy!
Expert:  Eric replied 7 months ago.
HI, Ok, because the noise is heard when idling, that eliminates the wheels, suspension, brakes, drivetrain. There are 2 possible causes - the fan again, or the IAC(idle air control ) valve.If you have the car with you now, go crank it up and pop the hood. When it starts making the noise, unclip and remove the air cleaner housing cover. If the noise is louder at this point, it is the IAC valve. If not, it is the fan again

I want to take my car to a Ford dealership and tell them what you said may be the problem. Unfortunately it will be tomorrow before I can do that. Today is Sunday and they are not open. Thank you for your help. If you would like to speak to me by phone I will be glad to do so.
Expert:  Eric replied 7 months ago.
HI,Phone service is additional fee and really dont see a reason for going that route right now. Let me know the results of what the dealer says and we can go from there at that point
