Question about 2001 Ford Ranger Regular Cab

1 Answer

Humming sound I am driving a Ford Ranger 2.5D (2000).The problem is when I reach 80km/h, there is a irritating humming sound and fades away as you increase speed and starts again as you reach 120km/h. I am not sure where the sound comes from. It sound more like its coming from the drivers side so i am not sure how to eliminate the components,whether its the gearbox,engine,wheel bearing, turbo charger. Please assist

2001 chevy suburban. I hear a humming noise from the engine. Engine ticks while idle for after a few minutes. Ticking goes away when I accelerate. There is a strong vibration when I accelerate in drive but...


Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

Faint to loud humming noise while driving and turning...


Could be either a loose belt or you are low on power steering fluid,or the power steering pump could just be worn out.

Humming noise in dash starts huming between 80km/h-95km/h


Could be something loose in the dash assembly if you car doenst act weird when you reach this speed. I wouldnt worry about it too much, but if it worries you take it to a dealership or a mechanic.
