Question about 2004 Lincoln Aviator

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Lincoln AViator with 83000 miles on it. At this time I am hearing a whining noise which sounds like it is comming from the rear. It is louder when you are stepping on the gas and then seems to go away as you let off. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is your rear differential making noise. I would have it serviced and make sure fluid is clean. these are known for noisy diffs will need to be rebuilt. depending on how loud it can run a long time like this

What gear oil is recommended for 2005 lincoln aviator


I used SFR (Superior Friction Reduction) with 80w90 gear oil in a Ford differential and experienced an increase in MPG. Mine never made noise but I am in favor of the friction conditioning fluid with the gear oil. I ran that car for 270k miles and the rear axle was as quiet as new.

When I get up to about 65-70 mph with my 2004 Lincoln Navigator it makes a humming noise... very annoying.. Can anyone help me with what this is and how I can get it fixed?


Unfortunately, this is a somewhat common problem. Ford has issued several Technical Service Bulletins related to rear end noise. Without an extended warranty, this is something you will have to pay for.
TSB 05-23-3 11/28/05 REAR AXLE NOISE REPAIR FORD: 1997-2005 Expedition, F-150 2002-2005 Explorer LINCOLN: 1998-2005 Navigator 2003-2005 Aviator MERCURY: 2002-2005 Mountaineer
ISSUE:
Some vehicles may exhibit an axle whine or hum during acceleration, deceleration and/or cruise.
ACTION: An axle repair kit has been developed which incorporates most parts required for a comprehensive axle repair. The kit should be used instead of installing a complete axle assembly to repair an axle whine/hum. Replace Ring and Pinion with Axle Kit and Components.

I have a ticking noise coming from rear driver side of 2003 aviat


Most likely its the exhaust pipes or muffler making the sound. It should just be the metal expanding from the heat.

If you crawl under the car you should be able to hear the part better.

2004 Lincoln Aviator thumping sound


The problem is the rear thermostatic expansion valve (TXV).
It is behind the left rear quarter trim panel.You can pull the panel back to access the valve to make sure that that is the noise.If so you will nedd to have AC system evacuated and replace valve and recharge the system. The part number is YF2Z-19849-AA.

2003 Rear axle whine


Hate to burst ya'll bubble but I just got my 2003 lincoln aviator back after I had a front end accident took it in to have the oil changed and check for a transmission service also wanted them to check for a front end noise. Well go figure apparently its in the front differnential in something called the "vista clutch" anway it requires a new transfer case to be purchased. Apparently it runs about $2000 with labor included. Go figure the insurance company wont pay for it after already dumping $8000 in damages already to fix and stated they would not total my truck with 83000 miles on it. Well all I can say is i was told they only go out if they are burnt out from locking the wheels up and skidding and just 1 in a 1000 goes out so I guess we are just he lucky ones. Good luck hope this helps a little also make sure ther is nothing wrong with the gears cause it could create an even bigger problem.. Peace out!
