Check your ball-joints. There are pros and cons to guessing different components. What I visualize is that you have low motion noise{slow approach to parking spot) and noise going over rough roads(no clutch, no braking).

There was a recall on some gas tank straps, which a rough road could reveal, but it would not affect going into a parking spot. Check rear leaf springs for cracked leafs. The truck body settles when parking and driving motion could make broken leaf spring chirp.

Check motor mounts. The exhaust pipes and joints in what is called the "donut" can chirp if the tailpipes are rigid and the engine moves on bad mounts. The donut becomes the only flexible connection in the exhaust system.

    It might be something as simple as your shocks, I have a 2000 cold. The squeeks and moans subside when the shocks get warm from use.

Pulling as in sruggling to go? or puling off to one side? If it is struggling you could have clogged injectors or a bad fuel filter. Fuel filter is about $8and is located inside the frame midway of the expedition on the drivers side. If pulling to one side have your alignment checked.

Well it could be a number of problems, check your plugs and leads it sounds one could be dead, oil was low so you could have damaged the bearings and for that you have to get professional help at your ford dealer, timing could be out as well caused by the timing belt skipping a tooth. Have to keep your maintenance regular. Hope this help to solve the problem.

I have recently bought an Eldiss Affinity 482 caravan. When on road it makes creaking noises which are very loud. Has anyone else had this problem

I would need to hear this noise to ascertain what is causing it. As a guess I would think the rubber bushings in the suspension are in need of replacing. As far as this model it is not sold here in the USA that I know of.

I have a 2000 durango 4.7. When i back up into my parking spot it gets a loud creak sound. It sounds like its coming from the passenger front side. What could it be?

It could possible be the front suspension bushings. They are rubber and dry out over time. Since you are changing direction and thus angle of the front suspension when backing up, this is a common time to hear the problem. There are lubricants you can use to relieve the noise, but the ideal solution is to replace the bushings.

Subframe bushings symptoms

Micpherson strut or independent front. If its the MacPherson strut design of the car on your picture, then clunks on rough pot holed roads or rough dirt. Al's a weird one is a clunk may or may not be heard and /or felt upon first application of breaks. Sometimes noticeable that car travels straight then when brakes applied it suddenly pulls to right or left. If accompanied with a brake squeak then Its a wheel bearing. On independent front suspension all previous symptoms plus one. A ticking sound that is repetative or described as a clicking noise, very faint though. Usually only heard with windows rolled down and driving 20 to 30 mph with a concrete wall next to lane, which echo's the noise to driver but not when in open country, could also be symptoms of control arm bushings. Sway bar bushings only make noise on rough roads. Cabin bushings and all others can usually be visabily checked. If no cracks then its good if small hair line cracks, keep an eye on it, if large cracks and possibly with pieces missing, replace . if its a Chevy replace control arm bushing adjuster bolts. They get grooves wore in them defeating the reason your replacing the bushings as it will still have play, make noise. Etxc. Oh the other symptom is when road tilts to the right side being lower then left then vehicle pulls to right. But if road sloped the other way then pulls that way and usually no pull either way on level ground.. Some pull is natural but too much is bad. Hope it helps. What noise and when does it do it? Where and what are you doing as well as how fast and I could help narrow your possible problems.

Ford ka creaking on drivers side when driving over bumps in road or turning

Is this a suspension creak, or a door creak?

Components which you haven't had changed are:

bottom suspension arms
Anti roll bar links

Also lubricate your door lock mechanism, hinges and window rubbers as these can cause creaks from time to time.

Check sway bar bushings/links and sway bar bushing/body mounts, rattle mostly when going over bumps/rough spots in the road.

There is a rattle or creaking sound in the front driver's side wheel area. It's not really bad all of the time, but it is much worse in damp, rainy weather. When I go over rough roads, I can hear it and...

take it to a goodyear tire store or a other tire and brake store. midas where ever that offer free brake inspection. the bolts might be loose that holds the caliper on. don't let them fix it, just get a writen estimate. they want to find the problem so they can fix it. the dealer wants you to go away till the warrantee is out!

Creaking under the car

The problem is a bushing....the other problem is identifying which one it is. It is almost impossible to duplicate the squeak if the vehicle is up on the rack...or if it is jacked up on stands or ramps. You have to try a process of elimination to isolate it. WD-40 or a can of liquid wrench (just about the same thing), crawl around underneath and spray one bushing at a time. It is some work to jack it up and drop it down but at least you can narrow it down.

Creaking noise in front end 1997 explorer

Sounds like it is your CV axles.  Turn the wheel one direction, right or left, and check just behind the wheels to see if your CV boot is cracked or ripped (the boot is a black, rubber accordion looking thing).  If it is cracked or ripped, I would say that is definitely the problem.
