My 2013 Ford Escape SEL makes a metallic, hollow POP noise upon a cold start. It sounds like it comes from underneath the driver’s side - a little towards the back end. The noise is very brief - half a second and then it’s gone. It will do this relatively consistently both when it’s cold and when it’s hot outside, but usually only after the vehicle has been turned off for at least 3 hours or so.
My dealership can’t get it to make the noise and they’ve had it for almost a week now. Most days the car will make this noise with me in the morning, for my lunch break and again when I leave work. My luck they have it 5 days and the noise up and leaves.
In the meantime, I’m driving a 2013 Ford Escape SEL ‘loaner’ and the loaner car made the exact same noise!
Help please! Thanks!
