Startup clanking sound and with ac on sometimes


Asked by Sep 30, 2016 at 09:48 PM about the 2013 Ford Fusion Titanium

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Two days ago my car started making a bad clanking / rattling / chattering
sound right when I start it for about 1-2 seconds and goes away. This
happens every time, not just when cold. It also happens sometimes when i
turn the ac on. Its a knocking noise like if you were to put a bolt in the dryer
with clothes and turned it on. Tumbling intermittent knock.

1 Answer


Might be a loose heat shield on the exhaust components.
