I recently got a bb big bend I have noticed a few things ever since I got it. At certain speeds, particularly when I go around 25 mph I hear a very distinct rattle in the engine almost like a ticking. I have to speed up to a few mph more to get it to stop but it doesn’t happen once I do. I notice it going around 40 as well. It seems like if the engine is cruising at a lower rpm that sound will occur. Not sure exactly what the sound would be but all I can relate it to is ticking or the sound of fuel injectors?

Look around the forum, some dude had a weird sound when downshifting or at low speeds and ended up needing a transmission replacement.

Edit: found it, last post from the bottom. https://www.broncosportforum.com/forum/threads/transmission-noise.2748/

I will say this vehicle makes a TON of sounds I have never heard from a car and I’m assuming it has to do with the technology and the turbo. No issues so far (knock on wood) aside from realizing this motor needs premium fuel when air temps are above 105, and I’m pushing 7k miles.

Whether or not it is a bad sound or not, I would bring it in to Ford to look at. I have the same issue and I had mentioned the loose shift cable to the tech, but was told that they spoke with an engineer and that these noises are “normal” and due to the solenoids in the transmission preparing for a shift.

Now, I do not think these are “normal” noises personally (and likely the shift cable/other issue), but what I do have is a service record saying I brought it in for this specific issue with a detailed explanation written for it, so if it becomes a larger issue I have a paper trail.

Hope they fix it for you though 😁

I have that exact same noise. My son works for Ford and he spoke with an engineer who said Ford can repair the cable that is causing this noise by "adding a noise dampening weight." It is going to the dealership next week to be looked at. Fingers crossed.
