Tranny's making noises

Yeah, not cool. It makes a really really loud clicking noise. Its not coming from the motor, its comin from the mid section of the car and sounds like im dragging some metal, but theres nothing dragging on the ground. My TOB had started chirping a while back, so I dont know if that has anything to do with it, but it still shifts fine, doesnt grind, feels really smooth, just makes noise. I get no vibrations or anything through the shifter that would indicate things being broekn inside, i just cant figure out what it might be. Ill probably have it towed tomorrow to a tranny shop and get it looked at, but anyone have any ideas?

Does it click under load? U-joints will so that.

Re: Tranny's making noises

Without listening to it I'd say it would be hard for me to diagnose.........If your not sure what it is then I'd get it looked at before it costs you more money for ignoring the issue.

Re: Tranny's making noises

You sure its coming from the middle and not the rear end? Get a video of it or sound clip.

Re: Tranny's making noises

it doesnt sound like it is... if it were something inside, i feel like id be able to feel it through the shifter, which isnt the case. Who knows, hopefully its not too bad. I watched it get hauled off on a flatbed about 20 minutes ago

Now that I recall,those cars were bad about the emergency brake cable hitting the driveshaft.Crawl under there and check.

That had crossed my mind too... only thing is, I cant really get under my car. My car did have an open recall that was just fixed that had to do with the ebrake bracket, but I thought that was the bracket that was under the center consol? Either way, its gettin looked at tomorrow so Ill be sure to relay whats wrong with it.

It is, but the cable hits the front part of the driveshaft near the trans......

Re: Tranny's making noises

just a FYI.. ESP. if you have an aluminum driveshaft.. sounds from bad/failed u-joints WILL travel..

That would be the most likely clicking noise

aside from that.. does the noise change if you're on the gas hard? decelerating? cruising in neutral?

That's really odd, but glad it was nothing more serious.

Re: Tranny's making noises

yeah, they said the bolts that held the midpipe to the headers had come loose just enough for a tiny hole, and it made that noise. The tech that was working on my car had worked on a lot of fords and recognized the sound... thankfully it was something extremely minor. I would have never guessed an exhaust leak would sound like dragging metal
