Question about 2004 Ford Explorer

Open Question

2004 Ford Explorer wub-wub sound with O/D Off light on.

2004 Ford Exploroer Eddie Bauer V8 - Sensor said tire was low. Upon pulling out of driveway to go add air into tire I noticed a continual "wub-wub" sound that I chalked up to being from the low tire. The wub-wub rate increases and decreases in correlation with the speed. I turned at a stop sign. Coming out of the turn I heard a "revving or spinning" type sound that lasted for a brief second. We have piles of snow and ice all around the area and I figured a wheel slipped on a pile of snow for a brief second in the turn. I continued driving and within about 1 minute my "O/D off" light began flashing. I had about a half mile left to drive. In that time the car kicked strongly twice. Upon arriving I turned the car off and filled air into the tires. Driving back the "O/D off" light was no longer on and there was no more kicking. However, the wub-wub sound is still there. Other than the wub-wub the car is driving fine. A few side-notes: The car has always had a few glitches with shifting hard and seems to be related to the 4wd system. Every once in a while it will kick (it has done this for several years). Also, we have had extremely cold temps here and tons of ice/snow for 6 weeks. There have been many days with negative temps and the car is outside. Don't know if that has anything to do with anything. Thanks for the help.

Have your power steering belt checked and adjusted, or replaced if worn.

SOURCE: very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only

you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.

SOURCE: Truck makes humming sound, volume increases with speed and turn

Wheel bearings is my guess. Confirm this by jacking the vehicle up with wheels on and check for play. Grab the tire by the top and bottom and wiggle it in and out, the will be excessive play. Given the fact that you gave a clear explination i am almost certain its bearings. You will need to purchace new bearings(Inner and Outer), Hub Seals, and possibly a possibly an axle seal kit for the 4x4 drive axle (they get old and stick to the axle durring disassembly) and keep in mind that to get the outter races of both bearings in the hub need to be "Pressed" out a a machine shop, or by any shop that might have a press.

The switch itself is probably bad. You can pop the switch out and unplug the wires to verify. You can pull the fuse to deactivate temporarily. The fuse is probably powering other items too, so find out what else is sharing the fuse.
