It's just your fan clutch, which is made to blow the fan hard on start up for a few minutes, then adjust to the actual engine temperature. I don't know why, but they all do it, any Ford with a fan clutch. Explorers, trucks, Aviators, Navigators, Expeditions. Don't worry about it, you can't fix it without damaging something, and there's nothing wrong.

My 2004 Aviator "had" adjustable pedals.The brake pedal is now closer to the seat and the gas pedal is fully extended.I've searched the internet for a temporary fix but i wanted to know if any of my fellow forum followers have had any experience with this problem.Thanks.
#1942 of 1950 2005 Lincoln Aviator Rough Idle fuse #38
Apr 04, 2013 (7:25 pm)
05 Aviator run rough at idle, but smooth while driving. The #38 fuse blows immediately after changing 15A. Book says vent canister or egr module don't know what that is. Also check engine light codes read P0443, P0135 and P0141. I know the last two are for o2 sensors, but don't want to change them because I know something else is causing them to read bad. I checked the wire on them and everything looks good as far as I can see. I also checked for vacuum leaks did see any visible. Also there is a slight continuous hum under hood. Have any ideas?

Take it to a mechanic. You're in over your head. If you start changing parts you'll just be throwing money away. Better make sure it's not the head - check compression in cylinder 8.

I know this is an old question, but I'm having the exact same issue today. I was wondering how you resolved your issue. I need that part and no one has it anywhere. So frustrating.
#1945 of 1950 Acceleration hesitation
Sep 09, 2013 (5:07 pm)
I'm taking my 2004 Aviator to dealer tomorrow morning re acceleration hesitation problems that cause the suv to shake violently and not accelerate when I attempt to go over 60 mph. Started happening right after a recent oil change. The mechanics who did the oil change said it's not their fault, ran diagnostics and nothing came up. I know almost nothing about cars and after reading some of the posts, I feel like I'm in big trouble. Already had the heads and coils replaced by the previous owner. Any suggestions I can tell mechanics tomorrow?

I suspect bad coil packs.There is one for each spark plug.There
have been service bulletins on them.The warranty on them
was extended through 100,000 miles.There have been some issues
with the #6 & 7 cylinders.My engine was eventually replaced.
Here's to hoping it's just the coil packs.Good luck!

I thought the 4.6L still used a single coil pack rather then COPs. Either way it does sound like a coil problem but could also be a clogged fuel filter or fuel pump.

I believe the engine was redesigned to address the overheating
in the 6 & 7 cylinders.Perhaps the coil configuration was changed
as well? I agree that it could fuel related but this has happened
to me with 6 coils.My has had the same problem with 4 coils
on her 5.4l expedition.
