tick tick tick... engine sound, any help?
Ok... 97 F-150, 42,000 miles.
The weather got cooler and I had a "tick... tick tick.... tick" sound from under the hood when accelerating after a cold start. After the engine warmed up, it went away.
I have let it sit for a couple days and it was pretty chilly this morning when I started it.... here is what i heard from under the hood:
a constant "chssssssssssshhhh"... sounded kinda like somone was taking a screwdriver and running it in circles around the inside of a coffee can. after about a min of that i heard a "clunk" and it stopped... then it went back to the "tick tick tick" on acceleration.
anybody have any ideas?
