Hi, I am Mike, welcome. I'm reviewing your question.

Does this noise occur when moving the shifter into and out of park or anything else?

Is this a floor or column shifter?

Ford Mechanic: Mike S., ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

I see this is a floor shifter. I would refer to this article and start disassembling the shifter and if you have to disconnect the shift cable and see if the shifter still makes a noise with the cable unhooked and maybe you can figure out what is causing the noise after you gain access to it and look closer at it.

Did that answer your question? If so, kindly leave me a positive rating, so I get credit. After all, you have already made the deposit.
If you don't, the deposit you made will just sit there and I won't get my share of it.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
