Slight "popping /thumping" noise

I have noticed a slight popping noise (intermitant) sometimes while driving and even sometimes at idle. It has a similar sound to the "thump" when you turn on the A/c. I drove 2 brand new ones today and one of them did the same thing. Mine is an 05 with 15,000 miles on it. Any ideas or similar experiences?

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

I have noticed the same thing on my 05. Does your truck have auto climate control? I was thinking it might be the vents switching from floor to vent. Maybe someone else will chime in with an idea.

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

Yep. That was my first suspicion so I turned the system off but it didn't change much. It feels like a slight thump in the floor at times.

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

I just got a brand new 05 F250 and it does the same thing. Thought it had something to do with the diesel but my brothers 04 5.4 gasser does it too. Some kind if release valve maybe?

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

I drove 4 new 6.0's the last 2 days and if I didn't know better, I would say none of them were made by the same company or out of the same parts. I took the Ford guy for a ride and he didn't hear anything. Of course it would have been a FIRST if he had. Hopefully it is nothing to worry about. For some reason, NEW noises always make me nervous though. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

Mine went in this AM for AC, front left hub, turbo hose, and funny popping noises. I am not sure if mine is the same but the word from the shop today is the "cab mounts". Not sure what this is and if they need to be replaced or adjusted. I hope to have it back tomorrow, but as of late today they had not resolved where the AC is leaking (put dye in) or what is causing the left front hub to engage on hard right turns. They said they would not replace the turbo hose that keeps coming off (it looks good and torque is correct) so I told them to charge me for new parts and replace the darn hose and clamps while cleaning the mounts good. Last time it came off I had the horse trailer in the fast lane cruising up a long grade along and bang nothing to do but start cutting traffic off as I smoked over to the right shoulder. My wife had to jump out for fear of soiling the X.

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

I have the same on my 05, I found if I turn the AC system to off, it doesn't do it. Turn it back on - sounds like compressor clutch engaging.

Interested to understand if it is cab mounts or something else.

Thx,

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

Here's a bulletin I found on a website about that issue. If you have an automatic, it could be this.

Clunk or Pop from TorqShift at 2-3 MPH:
A clunk or pop may be heard or felt on drive away after starting the engine, backing up and shifting to drive, usually around 2-3 MPH. This condition may be intermittent. It is the result of normal backlash (movement) between the splines on the low/reverse one-way clutch. Broadcast Message 1335

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

It;s the A/c compressor turning on. Cab mounts don't "thump" sitting still. Turn your climate to off and the thump will stop. It's just another "no charge" option

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

I listened again today. Turned the a/c off and it still does it. Some- times at idle, sometimes driving down the freeway. No real pattern. Sounds like a gas engine that has a slight backfire, but I can feel it in the floor. I am going to crawl under it tonight and see if something is loose. I love the truck but like I said anything that is a new sound makes me nervous. BTW, the Ford service guy said my 6.0 is absolutely the smoothest and quietest he has EVER heard!

Re: Slight "popping /thumping" noise

I drove alot yesterday, the noise in my truck is AC related. I never heard it while the AC was off.
