I was on my way home from the local Ford dealership today with a dual alternator radiator hose when I noticed an odd clinking noise when I'd let completely off the throttle and then get back into it decently.
It would happen for the most part when I was going about 35 or above, around when the torque converter locks in 3rd. It would happen only one time when I'd get on it. I'm having a real hard time telling where it's coming from, as it's relatively quiet (had to turn the radio off to easily hear it). I've had it once make the noise when I put it in gear, have not been able to replicate that, though.
I'm really hoping it's not rear end (really don't want to have a center section grenade...). I'm going to be pulling the fill plug for the rear axle tomorrow to check the level...just b/c it's in the shop for some routine maintenance work. I replaced the cover a couple summers ago, I cleaned the plug of shavings (which is to be expected with over 100k...especially if it had never been touched), hopefully it's not crammed full of metal...
