My 97 250 with the 351 sometimes when shifting from 1st to 2nd (Automatic trans)makes a loud wierd exhaust noise. it doesnt lose power, just a strange noise. Only happened 3 times in the last 2 months. Anyone had this happen to them or know about this??
Thanks

Is this the regular F250 that is the new style or the Heavy Duty old style 97 F250. I have the HD old style 97 with the 351, automatic transmission and I've never experianced this problem. How many miles do you have on it?

It is under warranty, but its such a slight problem, it would hardly be worth losing a day to take it to my Ford dealer to check it out. I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this with theirs. the noise is very hard to explain, its like a whirl sound when it shifted from 1st to second gear & it only happened a couple of times.

I would explain it the best ya can to the dealer. Ya never know if its going to be a cheap or expensive fix. I would let them pick up the tab, while ya still can.
