Car Information:
Ford Escape
Year: 2008
Engine Size:
Trans: Manual

Issue / Question:
You have changed the oil on this vehicle twice w/Amsoil. I am hearing what sounds like valve clatter for a while when I first start driving. It has only 16,000. Should this be something covered in Ford Dealer Warranty?

Answer:
It may be an exhaust leak. I have another customer with the same vehicle, had an exhaust leak only when cold. After the engine got to normal temp the exhaust manifold expanded a little and the leak/noise went away.
