engine noise

  1. Is this noise what I think it is?

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Is this noise what I think it is? (Lifter Tick on 2008 Bullitt) Below I have attached a sound clip of a ticking noise coming from my engine. Most likely it is a lifter tick? I do not smell any exhaust fumes, so it does not seem like an exhaust leak. Plus, this seems to be coming from the...
  2. 1967 200 I6 crankshaft Damper

    Classic Tech
    Hey all! I have a question about my crankshaft damper. I've had my car for a few years and i've always noticed that when I drive on the freeway, my engine sounds like it isn't running smoothly. I did some research and people suggested the crankshaft damper. I started it up and looked at it and...
  3. Single cylinder VERY loud tick.

    V6 Tech
    I have had a very loud tick coming from the driver's side front cylinder (#4) for about 2 months now. It takes a minute or 5 for the engine to start making the noise. It is definitely around or in cylinder #4, my Dad and I pin pointed it with a stethoscope. I know it is not the famed exhaust...
  4. 2004 Possible Rod Knock

    V6 Tech
    My engine is making a knocking noise. Been told it's probably a rod knock, not by a mechanic or anything, just people. The noise goes away when accelerating, also been told a rod knock doesn't do that. Trying to get an idea what I might be looking at if I take it in. Noise is coming from...
  5. 2001 GT engine noise

    4.6L Tech
    I know that describing a sound over the internet is very hard but I'll do my best to describe it. My 2001 mustang gt with 4.6 has what I would describe as a "ticking" or like a "clicking". Its almost has a pattern like tap tap tap, tap tap tap, tap tap tap in very quick succession. I can only...
  6. Knocking issue

    V6 Tech
    Hello I have a 1996 3.8 liter V6 automatic Mustang that is having some problems. Recently my car started making a loud knocking noise when I start it up and while it drives. I've checked the oil and it is milky. Also there is some oil getting into my coolant lines. When I first purchased the car...
  7. Unknown GT Noise

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    Hi Guys, I have a ’10 GT with a strange noise that I only hear when I get off the gas to shift gears or if I rev the engine when in gear. It’s a winding noise, sounds like a rope retracting back into the mower after it is pulled out. The noise only lasts 1 – 2 seconds as the rpm comes down...
  8. Rough start.. bad noise.. probably a horrible time

    Classic Tech
    Hello all, I have an interesting situation. Just rebuilt a 302 and I dropped it in to start it. Initial timing was at about 8 deg BTDC. So when I attempt to start it it runs rough an only runs when I keep giving it gas. It dies when it drops to idle. That I attributed to timing or perhaps some...
  9. Engine noise.. I can't figure out what it is

    5.0L Tech
    I've got a 94 5.0 and whenever the engine decelerates it makes a weird combination of hissing whistling and a blowing noise and its actually starting to do it when I start the car. I don't have any loss of power or anything but its really annoying when I try to get on it lol so if anyone can...

  11. 2002 3.8L "Chirping" from Crank Area

    V6 Tech
    I thought my son's 2002 V6 3.8 had a bad water pump bearing. We started to replace water pump, but decided to remove the serpentine belt and verify it. with no accessories spinning, there is a high pitched "Chirp" coming from the crank area. Any ideas?
  12. knocking engine noise with a horrible idle

    Classic Tech
    So I recently just got my 1968 302 running and I ran into a problem almost immediately. At first when I started it, the idle was just rough and after adjusting the timing, idle speed and air fuel ratio it ran relatively well. About 10 min into the initial break in while it was idling, I heard a...
  13. 1966 Mustang 289 Automatic Engine Noise Similar to SuperCharger

    Classic Tech
    Hey guys, first post in what I'm sure will be an ongoing relationship. I recently picked up a 1 owner 66 289 Mustang in premo shape. Shes a bit ugly at the moment but that will change as time goes by. The 289 has a rebuild with about 15k on it. Its been sitting for a couple of years only...
  14. Weird click/thump sound from engine

    4.6L Tech
    Hello all, new to the forums! I have a 2005 mustang GT Auto with minor modifications. I have been noticing a strange sound coming from the engine at idle. It's not very loud and it goes away completely when the car is either in gear or if the rpms go up from idle. It sounds like a click at...

  16. 1998 Mustang V6 engine whining noise???

    V6 Tech
    :headscratch: I have a '98 mustang automatic V6 3.8L. I am hearing a whining noise in the engine. It is more profound when the radio is on than when the radio is off. The whining noise increases and decreases as the gears shift. I tested my battery and alternator and the readings are all in...
