1997 Ford Explorer, whining sound when put in reverse

1997 Ford Explorer, auto trans, made a whining sound when put in reverse and sometimes while in drive. Had the trans rebuilt and still does the same thing. Mechanic is trying to say it is something else than the trans. Could it be the transfer case? Trying to find out if the trans was never done right.

Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

My ford explorer 1998 won't go in reverse. I have transmission fluid in it.


My 1988 Explorer would not go in reverse either after the trans was just rebuilt about a year before. Turned out it was the transfer case. Unfortunately it cost as much as getting the trans rebuilt. I thought the transfer case was just for the 4 wheel drive but it has something to do with the reverse as well believe it or not. Hope that helps.

Ford auto trans 5r55e make noisy [n reverse and will not stay in park


Sounds to me like the shift cable is out of adjustment and is in between reverse and park. The cheapest thing and first thing would be to have someone check it for adjustment. May need to put it on a lift.

Transmission or transfer case noise


I have the same problem with my 94 explorer with a manual transmission, Just replaced the trans a month ago because of gear failure and now It's slipping out of gear when the engine isn't under load aka Coasting, was Told By a Really good Trans Guy that this is a failure in the Linkage in the transfer case am about to tear into mine tho It's way over my technical ability but will repost here after I get it torn apart with potential prices for worn parts for the do it yourselfer, And Has to be the issue I hope because the gears in the transmission are in pristine condition the other reason for suspecting the transfer case is that when my trans is slipping and making that weird Rattle Clatter sound coming from the trans if I put it in 4x4 low it drives great even tho the front wheels aren't pulling since I have the front drive shaft off at the moment,, Well Here goes Nothing Wish me luck on this teardown gonna need it..
