Crazy HOWLING noise coming from under the hood!!!!!!!!!!

Took the '08 out yesterday to get some things, while it was idling at a store a really loud howling noise started coming from under the hood. I lifted the hood several times trying to pin-point the noise, but never had any success. Drove it staight to the dealer, but they did not have a diesel tech there since it was Saturday so it is going in early in the morning. Any ideas???? The best I can describe it is a loud howl, but it has nothing to do with a belt, you can hear it while driving on the freeway inside with the radio on! Kinda wierd, guess I will find out tomarro what is going on.

I took the truck to Ford this morning, they called me and told me that the body shop did not refill the coolant in the fuel cooler after they replaced the radiator and hoses so it burned up! That was the noise I was hearing, I had to then get in touch with the body shop so payment for the repair could be made to Ford. I also told them to check out my wastegate and boost sensor for my same old problem of low boost and no power, they now tell me the truck put itself in a low power mode because of the burned up fuel cooler, maybe it did but it was a gutless puke before I ever hit an elk. I don't know what to do with this truck, something has to be wrong for it not to have the boost everybody elses does. I wish I had never bought this truck. I have not got to drive it more than a 100 miles since the first part of November. Frustrated........

Man that sucks, I hope that is the only problem and it gets fixed......because 100 miles since November that blows.......I think once you get it back on the road, you'll be glad you bought it.....hang in there

The body shop is refusing to pay for the new fuel cooler that burned up from not having any coolant in it. The service guy at Ford is fighting with them, they say they could not have over-looked it , but I had another body shop do about $1000 more work to it that they over looked or did not fix. I am sick of this crap, I am trying to get a hold of my Insuance agent so maybe they can put some pressure on them to pay for it.

That's exactly what insurance is for. Handle it with the insurance company. It is a result of the accident, nothing more.

There are practically no accidents where the insurance does not expect to have things missed in the initial estimate. Repairs should be guaranteed.
