Sounds Like Pinion Bearings , But Carrier Bearings Should Be Replaced (In My Opinion) as they Could Be Contaminated

SOURCE: Rear diff whining noise

Give the old man a pat on the back! There is an oil plug on the rear differential. On a level surface, remove the plug; if oil starts to flow out, the fluid is full. If no oil flows, carefully put your finger in the hole and feel for the oil level. Your finger should go no lower than the first knuckle before you feel oil. If it goes further, you are low on oil and should either fill it up or better yet replace it. Rear axle oil doesn't get replaced nearly often enough in most vehicles and since your truck is 18 years old, would be a bad idea to have it changed. Best of luck.

SOURCE: How do I diagnose a loud whining noise from the

It sounds like it is def. the wheel bearing. If you can get it on a hoist and let it down with something to stop one side of vehicle at a time and let other side spin freely you will likely be able to determine which side. Or if you have no hoist, jack up vehicle one side at a time and spin wheel listen for growling and also move tire in and out to check for looseness.

Why is my 02 mountaineer not kiking into gear I hear a whining noise coming from tranny it's a v8 all wheel drive


Well, I can think of a couple of things. Number 1, are you sure the noise isn't comming from your rear diff. The independent rear end isn't as strong as the solid 8.8 axles of the older mountaineers. The toe links go out, and it causes the axles seals and rear bearings to go out. However, in this case I would look at the axle seals going into your rear diff. carrier. If it looks like your leaking, you could be blowing out the limited slip diff in the rear end. That would make a whining noise, and a lack of power because of the diff spinning instead of the tires. Now as for the transmission, that could be bad news. Ford does have a TSB for one of the internal parts wearing a groove in the casing. If I remember correctly it is one of the shift solinoids. That could be another cause the truck itself not going into gear. On the other hand some of the older Explorers had problems with the valve body gasket and that can do the same thing. So you may want to just change the valve body gasket and see if that fixes the problem before you have your whole trans remained. I know I threw a lot at you, especially with that added stuff about the rear end issues, but that is all items you might want to check.

'03 F150 lariat-rear end makes a whining noise when turning left or right. sometimes feels like brakes are grabbing. I think it started after submersing truck in water.Changed oil in diff. no different.


The noise usually is the clutches in the posi unit not releasing properly when turning, I've had sucess by taking the diff.cover off and cleaning as much old fluid out as possible. Install cover and add two bottles of Ford posi additive and fill with 75/140 synthetic gear lube. It holds about 3.3 litres. Drive vehicle to a parking lot with enough room to do figure eights. At low speed make fairly tight turns in a figure eight. Do this several times, then reverse your direction and repeat. This forces new lube into the clutch packs. Drive vehicle and listen for improvement,

Whining from rear end only when turning


If you have had the oils changed in the car,the wrong oil was put into the differential.It has to be for a limited slip diff.OR a friction modifier has to be added.Once the oil is changed,or modifier added,go to a big carpark(empty) and at full lock on the steering turn the car in figure 8's.Then do it in reverse.about 5 times each way.This spreads the diff plates with the correct oil and it should fix the noise.Do all this at very slow speed.Hope this helps

This may sound strange to you,but I think the wrong oil,or no additive has been added to the rear diff when you had it serviced.Did you recently have it serviced?What it is ,is the limited slip diff clutch plates,shuddering as the car is turning.The remedy is to change the oil that is in there ,if it's wrong oil, or put additive into the diff.Its called 'FRICTION MODIFIER'.Check the rear diff also.Hope this helps
