Hi,

'97 2WD 4.2 Auto std cab and std box.

When beginning to accelerate from rest, I hear and feel a tinny rattle, just
like loose baffles in the muffler.

Hitting everything in sight, heat shields, muffler, pipe, catcon, floor,
under-the-bed  with a rubber mallet does not reproduce the sound. It occurs
about one-third of the time, hot or cold.

If it isn't the muffler, what can it be? Has anyone else experienced this?

Joel Sturm

I have an E-350 V10 and under steady acceleration it is surging. It is very not noticeable, but it is there. The dealer said that is normal. Does anyone else have this problem? What did you do about it? Any other info on this van would be appreciated, V10,  E4OD.
Why is it everything is NORMAL when you go to the dealer? Customer "All of my wheels fell off!" Dealer " That is normal for that vehicle."  Thanks

just to rule out the simple, have you checked the tranny fluid when hot? on
a flat surface (can you leave the truck in N with no brakes on without it
coasting away?)

also the engine oil fluid? if that all checks out, try disconnecting the
battery overnight, and letting it relearn.
