Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Lincoln Town Car V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 72500 miles
It does so whether cold or warmed up. It doesn't do so while in neutral or park or idle in drive. It will make this noise on the highway too, but again, only under mild acceleration. Hills and climbs don't seem to influence the cause. They do, however, seem to make the sound louder. Give it more gas in any situation and the sound is gone. Give it none or almost no gas and the sound is gone. The engine runs smoothly all the time. It does not lose power or behave oddly while clattering. Higher octane gas does seem to help keep the noise to a minimum. Lower octane gas does not alter the range of power where the noise is made, but it does alter the volume/severity. Until the last few months I hadn't noticed any changes. Now it seems to be getting louder and I am concerned. I'll be glad to provide any additional information I can.
have the same problem?
