I have noticed a connection between this noise and my remote start. I have never heard it happen while using the key. It also hasn't happened very many times. At first I attributed it to having an exhaust on the truck, but it's definitely not that. When it did it yesterday I was walking towards the front of the truck, I hit the remote start, and it was very loud and came from the engine area. Next objective...catch it on video as evidence to try and figure it out.

I asked this question a while ago because when I travel, I'm gone for 4+ days and start my truck when I get back in town to have my engine make a weird noise for a split second, but then go away.. it doesn't do it again unless it's been sitting for a few days. Someone on this forum said they had the same issue, but switched to synthetic oil and it cured the problem. I'm yet to get to my first oil change, but I'll switch to synthetic when I do.

Hi daninhelena, dieselhunter44, and ERod4x4.

I'd like to take a look and see how I can help with this. Could you please PM me your name, phone number, VIN, mileage, and dealer info?

Hi prorider17.

What is the year and mileage on your truck? Have you been to a dealer for a diagnosis?

Mine makes this sound too, I only noticed it with remote start up after it has sat for several days, like after a business trip. I will have to see if it makes it starting it up from inside the truck after a few days, I just have a habit of using remote start as it's hot out and I figure it can cool while I load luggage and get in. It has always done this, haven't taken it in for this issue yet, almost time for first oil change. Will be interested to see what others find is the issue.

@FordService Ashley - I have 2,900 miles on my 2013 F-150. No I haven't taken it to the dealer, I can imagine it'd be pretty challenging trying to replicate my truck making the noise unless I left it there for 5 days so they can hear it start up afterwards. Should I?

Mine does it too.
Not like the video.
Does right on start up for ½ a second.
Only after it sits for a few days
Sounds like dry main bearings until the oil pressure comes up

30,000 miles

Send me over your info, ERod4x4, and I'll take a look.

You could always ask about it at your next regular maintenance visit, prorider17. In the meantime, send me over your name, phone number, VIN, mileage, and dealer info, and I'll check things out on my end.

Hi zero419.

Have you had your dealer take a look at this? Let me know what they had/have to say!

Nope, my local dealer takes a week to look at my truck, they say that I didn’t buy it there, so they put other people in front of me.
It was there for a low oil pressure problem (and other issues) and they said it was the sending unit and replaced it (took over a week from drop off to pick up, no loaner car).
The dealer I bought it at is to far away to work with.
The best place I found is a dealer that is about 45 min. away and treats me with respect.
They fixed my brake warning issue with new computer software and looked over the entire truck without me even asking (brakes, tire pressure, lights ect.)
I don’t think I am going to take it to the dealer for this starting noise issue unless it gets worse.
I just wanted to add my experience to this thread.

Thanks for taking an intrest.

I had a gm dealer give me the "you didn't buy it here, why are you here for warranty work bs" on my old truck. Needless to say he got an earfull from me.... Shortly after that he gets in my truck and bumps my door into a brick wall. That was when I had a nice talk with dealership management and took care of business.
