Ford Windstar Knocking Noise Due to Broken Intake Runner
A knocking noise from the upper engine area may indicate a loose intake runner. Our technicians tell us if this is the case, replacement of the upper intake clamshell will be necessary.

seems like the little arms vibrate off. You cannot buy the arms by themselves, so you are told you need the whole runner control. GO TO A JUNKYARD AND GET THOSE TWO LITTLE ARMS>the intake runner is probably just fine. Mine was . Cost 8 dollars and and hour and a half to fix. Also you can bend them a bit to make them fit in snugger. The end clips to hold them are plastic and are 6 dollars each at the dealer. - Visitor
