Trans Problem MAYBE????

Hey guys, so I have heard this noise twice now from my truck and was wondering if anyone here has as well...

I was at highway speeds and all of a sudden, it sounds like their is something (like a mudflap) jammed in my tired, that type of flicking noise, but when i slow down it has clunked when gearing down, and then we i stop, it clunked once more..... and the truck has been fine ever since....


Any ideas??

Clunking when gearing down or stopping is usually a sign of a bad ujoint

I second the clicking like a stone, relates to U-joint.

ORRRR
It could be your hubs. Winter is here, you should check and replace your IWE actuator, very common. What happens is hubs lose vacuum due to probably frozen line, hubs trie to engage you hear that grinding noise, you slow down, hubs clunk and engage. Happened to me a few times. Replaced my IWE actuator haven't heard it since.

Food for thought.

wouldn't it only be the actuator if I was trying to put it in 4x4???

I jacked it up tried to find some play in the u joints, really didn't find anything.... have it booked into ford for Tuesday morning, but seeing how the sound is intermittent, i have very little fate in them.

Question about the front driveshaft, it comes out of the transfer case and then there is a slip yoke i believe, with a rubber around it.... i have found a little play in that slip yoke... nothing substantial, but could that cause it???

Thanks again...

Check the hoses that go to each front hub, the plastic fitting breaks and you get the gringing at road speed and as you slow down it clunks to engage, no you don't have to be in 4x4 to have thise happen it does it during 2wd, my 05 had that problem and Ford replaced everything for free.

So I took it for a ride today... When it started to happen I switched to 4High,noise stopped, everything was fine.... and nothing happened after.... so that makes me believe it is the hubs/vacuum system. Bringing it to ford tonight.

Yup exactly same as mine was, the old IWE module or whatever was shitty by design, bought a new one and voila (funny Ford parts guy was like these and the window regulators are selling like hotcakes! :/ ). If yours has warranty I am sure they will replace it.

No warranty left. Also I thought they fixed the issues with the solenoid by 2008. Well now I know it's either the solenoid or actuators or maybe a shitty hose. Lol. Going into the shop as we speak. I would be fixing it myself except I got work tomorrow for 7 days. 16 hour days, and I need my truck for my first day off next week. I guess I'm stuck paying the 210$ per hour labor fee................
