Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer working afternoon till just after midnight.
Can you have it scanned so I know which code is stored? If not most pats stores will scan or free.
Is the rattle from the engine occurring while under throttle or load like on a hill or accelerating up a hill? If so then we need to diagnose spark knock.
Is the rattle from the engine occurring most all the time? If so then this can be a oil pressure, or valve train issue, or oil sludge issue that we need to diagnose.
If you're confused on what to do now or later. You have already been charged the full question value. It's now time to compensate the tech that helped you. The only way I can continue to work here and help customers is by getting rated. If you're not pleased yet or plan not to rate me. Let me know so I can help more, close the post, or opt out. Please let me know if you're pleased with my help.
