Whining noises are usually the power steering pump. Check your power steering fluid levels. If they are fine do not worry about it, cold weather does this to the pump and goes away as you warm up.

SOURCE: rearend noise on 2004 Ford Explorer Sport trac

what type of noise?
have you checked the fluid?

if its a grinding noise while driving it could be choppy tires carrier bearings or axle bearings.

if its a whine while accelerating or decelerating than it is pinion angle.

if you can safly get both rear tires off of the ground than start it and put it in gear, try to locate the exact location "center chunk or out far in axle tubes" make sure vehicle is secure and safe befor climbing underneath.

SOURCE: Recently heard that a 2003 ford explorer sport

don't know about anything like that. I know Ford did put the emergency fuel shut-off switch on the passengers side floor up under the dash just behing the carpet on Rangers and were sometimes unplugged by passengers with long legs. It has a little red button on it that pushed down. Check to see if you have something like that. Maybe it shuts off when the anti-theft alarm is activated and has to be reset.

2001 explorer sport , fuel pump? vacuum leak? 619 scan tool data provided, any suggestions/solutions


The fuel pump is suspect but I believe there's also a fuel filter inline on the underside of the drivers side chassis. Fuel works off pressure so if the filter is clogged, the pressure remains between the fuel tank and the filter. Once the fuel has siphoned off between the filter and injectors, it dies but because there's positive pressure at the fuel pump, it won't come on until the pressure slowly seeps past the clog after hours. It's worth a look!

Front end 4x4 noise, whurling or winding noise . from low speed all the way up to high


without hearing the noise it is difficult to diagnose as there are many possibilities.
the most likely for a whurling or winding noise is the front differential (diff).
check the diff oil level as described in the manual and top up/change as needed.
if the noise continues it may be worth getting it checked by a mechanic as there are quite a few possibilities.

High pitch winding noise on cold start up.


Sounds like a constricted IAC Idle air control valve passsage. Fairly simple to fix. Remove air filter trunking all the way to the throttle body to allow access. The IAC allows air passed the throttle when closed at idle. Just on the inside of the throttle body in front of the throttle flap there is an opening in the throttle wall. This is the air inlet to the IAC; there is an outlet similar on the other side of the throttle. Use carb cleaner and cloth to shift the grime from this tubing and get it like new. Hold the throttle flap open to get at both ends of the IAC tubing. The IAC can be detached and cleaned to a shine. Reinstall the IAC and replace all air pipe ducting. Leave for about 20 minutes to allow any cleaner residue to dry out. When you restart you might experience a bit of uneven running but this will disappear very quickly as the last of the cleaner dries out

My 2003 Ford Explorer has a rotary type grinding noise when idling. The noise can also be heard through 2nd gear, but once you stop accelerating the grinding noise quites down, but never gone. I upped the...


I'm assuming a manual transmission--check the fluid level in it. There is a removable plug on the side of the case. If removed, stick your finger in the hole far enough to bend it down a little, pull it back out and see if the end is covered with a thick oil. If not, it may be too low to lube properly. You can put more in yourself, but it's pretty messy--take it to a lube shop and have them top it up. If the above doesn't help, it is probably time to service the internal parts in the transmission.

A/C -Heater controls
Has you are aware the A/C Clutch compressor is engaged at all times when the defrost mode is turned on. Turn off all heater controls. If the noise is gone it will be either the Air conditioner compressor clutch bearing or possible the idler pulley bearing .

4x4 low feature


The noise you heard was the 4x4 mode engaging. This noise is normal.

Under normal operations, if you were to have wheel spin, this noise would happen quickly and numerously within a couple of seconds.

Be sure that before going above 20mph, that you press either the 4x4 HIGH, or 4x4 AUTO buttons to avoid damage to the vehicle.
