Must fight the urge to post a pic of my other daily driver!
I got a 2019 model with 300 miles on it now. Drove it this morning and when I hit 40 mph the noise begun. Sounds like the 40 mph from speedo is tripping a what seems to be like a air valve open. I will jack it up and run it to 40 mph in next few days and see what is happening so we will know. Whatever it is it’s normal due to the 40 mph speed.I have mentioned this in the past, as my machine makes the clatter sound any time speed is over 40 mph. RPM makes no difference, the key factor is 40 mph and over. I can push in the clutch and coast at or above 40 mph, it will clatter, even at idle.
On the other hand, if I disconnect the speed sensor at the drive shaft, the clatter above 40 mph doesn't happen. Anytime I want to drive
around without the above 40 mph clatter, I disconnect the speed sensor at the front of the rear drive shaft. Nice diesel purr.
My clatter is purely related to the speed of the machine being over 40 mph, and the speed sensor being connected. Why the clatter happens only with the sensor connected is a mystery to me. Nobody has been able to explain it to me either. The best explanation I've been given is diesels make strange noises, "do not worry about it".
Sure seems like we can do better than that?
