Re: Somethings not right

FWIW they make mechanics stethoscopes and they are handy. To tell the truth I don't even know where the water pump is on my 6.0 but at least on older vehicles that was a sign of the water pump on its way out. On the work trucks I've had over the years, idler pullies have been a major problem.

Re: Somethings not right

Phil,

Years ago I had a clanking noise coming from the front of my f-250, 460. I would open the hood, I think every day. I was about to take it into the shop and I was washing off the engine and when I sprayed water on the pulleys the sound stopped. To make the story short, it was a small pebble stuck in the inside groove of the belt.
It's worth the try, maybe you can get lucky also.

Good luck,
Woody

Re: Somethings not right

All this time I thought a 6.0 was supposed to sound like a can of rocks!

A piece of hose can really help isolate sounds.

Re: Somethings not right

Even though I swore I would never take the van to a Ford dealership again, have an appointment there in the morning. Guess that's why I'm working so damn hard so I can afford to be ripped off at the dealership.

Will let you know where it goes.

Two dealers I have been very happy with are Magnussen Ford in Newark and Towne Ford in Redwood City.

Re: Somethings not right

Noise was the water pump, but apparently the fan clutch was bad as well (not the source of the noise though). Had a new belt put on while they had it apart too. Roughly $1300 out the door.

Glad I had it done before I head into DV tomorrow!
