Likely bad bearings. I've seen these with bad axle bearings, carrier bearings, and pinion bearings all at the same time. Perhaps since the oil thins as it heats up from driving, the noise is more pervelant?

Difference between ford 9 inch and 8.8 inch rear end


The size of the crown wheel gear. Ford 9 inch is a strong diff used in V8 models. The 8.8 is slightly smaller but is still a good diff. The gear ratios will probably be different. Manual gearbox cars have different ratios to automatics. The higher the ratio, the faster takeoff you will have but lower terminal speed. At high speeds , the high ratio differential will cause high engine revs and poor fuel consumption. A low ratio will be mediocre takeoff but allows high top speeds and lower engine revs. (Good for fuel economy if you are mostly highway driving)

Cold Air in highway


If you haven't, check your cooling liquid to see how full the resovoir is, or maybe the thermostadt is sticking (but I doubt that)


Thanks, Terry

Jeep cherokee rear differential


diff overheating is from incorrect mesh of the crownwheel and pinion
that can be from too little clearance , too much clearance of failing bearings and too much preload on the pinion bearings
it can also be from incorrect oil level in the diff to the bottom of the threads of the fill plug
it is time to pull the diff and check the bearings
the problem will most likely be the bearing behind the pinion as that one takes all the load
diffs normally run hot but it is the escaping oil that is the problem
that could be from bearings on the pinion allowing the lip of the flange seal to not seal properly

Chevy tahoe gear differential


remove the drain plugs from the diff units and check for metal bits. Check for metal in the transfer case oil as it sounds like a bearing in the diff section of the transfer case has failed.. There is a small diff here to allow the front wheels to travel at a different speed to the rear unit to allow for driving over un even surfaces or speed bumps.

2000 chevy blazer passenger front wheel noise


driving in 4wd on hard surfaces produces what is known as torque wind up as the wheels cannot slip so the variations of distance going around corners , dips in the road etc place considerable strain on the transmission , transfer case , drive lines and diffs
that is why it is difficult to get out of 4wd unless you drive with 2 wheels on a grass verge to relieve that torque wind up
as for the noise check wheel bearings and the cv ("U") joint at that wheel as there appears a proble where the dog teeth in the hub are not engaging properly or are jumping out of engagement

05 Jeep GC 5.7 Hemi AWD- low grade groaning road noise


Pulsating in the brake pedal is normally an indication of ABS problems or master cylinder problems. A quick check after a short trip may isolate this further. drive the vehicle about 1 or 2 miles, preferably on a highway, then get out and feel for heat from the tires one at a time. Be careful not to touch the hot areas of the wheels. If you feel more heat coming from one tire than the others then the Caliper may be sticking causing the problem. You also need to check your read brakes this way as well as they could also cause this problem if they are sticking.

I have a 00 audi a4 quattro, occasionally while taking a right hand turn ususlly from a stop, there is a clicking noise I believe to be comming from rear right? But the main problem seems to be vibartion...


the clicking and vibration in the front end sounds like a tie rod in need of replacement possibly due to potholes. Could be a bent alloy wheel from the same as well which could be causing all of the above problems

Drive train noise


likely pinion bearing or carrier bearings. They howl, characteristically, and the howl changes frequency with speed. Do check the u-joints first, though.
