Q: Grinding noise while driving 2013 Ford F150

asked by on

Hearing a grinding noise while driving. Took it to the Ford Dealership in Fort Collins, CO. They replaced a solenoid? in the 4-wheel drive system saying that the 4-wheel drive was trying to engage - thus the grinding noise. Two months have passed - noise is back again. Back to the same dealership. Now they are saying that they don't know what it is and they will not do additional tests/diagnosis of the 4-wheel drive system. When I drive slowly and switch into 4-wheel drive, I hear the same grinding noise! Getting frustrated. Any thoughts/advice. They did also determine that the rotors on the breaks are warped - would that be causing the noise? I do feel a vibration when braking. . . . but still have the noise. Noise is really noticeable around 20 mph and 10 mph - when not stepping on the brakes.

My car has 52000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Here is a tech bulletin for the noise and a fix. click here

Q: 2006 Ford Escape oil pan is sweating, is it the gasket or is it the pan?

Well I'm not sure about the mechanic's use of terms. If the oil pan is "sweating" oil, then that would dictate that the oil pan is already porous. It's not an everyday thing to happen but I have seen it...
