type: mpv

Expert:  EMRSR replied 8 years ago.

While I am looking...does it sound like a ping?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no it pretty much sounds like a grinding sound. mostly when I accelerate and it seemed to do so when my gas was low
Expert:  EMRSR replied 8 years ago.
Its the "grind" that I question...from where? Is this a vibration you hear or something you feel?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I hear it and can 'slightly' feel it through the gas pedal. It sounds like it is coming from the front end of the car. It sounds like something is rubbing together and then it just slides back in place
Expert:  William replied 8 years ago.



Have you tried re-creating the sound without moving the truck? For example keep your left foot on the brake and while in drive slowly apply the throttle while not moving the vehicle? Try this and tell me if you hear this noise.

If your Sherna gentry then you purchased a ford ESP warranty till 68k miles and this should be covered under this warranty. Most likely your front IWE hubs are trying to engage on there own from vacuum loss or a failing solenoid. I find the solenoid is 90% of the time at fault and it is easy to change and cheap and located squeezed between the battery and firewall. here is one ford meassage on this issue pulled up using your vin#.
