Look into changing the fan clutch. My F150 sounded like a jet engine coming to life while shifting gears and the a/c would blow hot for a few at the same time. On highway, I didn't notice the hot air, and learned that the condensor to the a/c was being air cooled that way instead of from the fan since the clutch was going out and didn't let the fan run to cool the condensor at slower speed or in town driving. Changed ours out for about $150 with a clutch from Autozone and works fine now. Hope this helps.

Is normal for older vehicles to do this. Wait until something breaks and fix it. I know it doesnt sound like great advice, but if all is working,leave it alone.

My Explorer is demonstrating a high pitch noise and feels like the engine is racing with acceleration, but no check engines lights are on


I really need the year but here is what might be the cause, the engine cooling fan clutch may be defective, if it locks up you will hear a roaring noise that gets louder as the engine speed increases. Open The hood and rev up the engine does the fan make allot of noise, like an airplane propeller?

Where is the rev sensor on a 2001 ford ranger


You would most likely find it on the tail shaft housing on your transmition. That is towards the rear of the transmition near where the drive shaft enters the transmition. The sensor will have a 3 wire conector on it. It does not matter if it is a manual or automatic.

Compressor and fans do not turn on until rev engine


I passed this question the first time I read it, so I will take a stab at it now.
The fans don't come on until the compressor has pumped the freon pressure up to say 150 or 200 psi. And the compressor clutch has to have voltage to engage the clutch.
I wonder if the clutch is going and needs 14 volts instead of 12 to engage ? Or the relay that powers the clutch ?
Speeding up the engine would increase voltage from the alternator.
This is assuming the serpentine belt is tight and everything else is working correctly.
I think I would swap the relay with another and put a meter on that circuit to the ac clutch to see what it takes to engage it.

Why does my heater in my 2000 ford ranger only work on the high setting?


I assume that you are talking about the heater fan?

Your heater FAN has at least 3 settings, and for our purposes we will assume low,med and high

Low and medium run through a resistor High is wired direct
Either your resistor is bad or your fan is
I know it seems wrong that the fan could be shot but it could be pulling so many amps that it won't work in any other mode than high
I just had this happen on one of my trucks
Start with the fan

Check cooling fan, cooling fan sensor, the sensor's relay if such, coolant level, coolant pump. Sorry for not being able to tell you where are these located, never seen a Ford truck even with closed hood...

I have a 4x4 explorer and it makes a roaring sound from front end is this normal for this model to do this


This model explorer is equipped with a mechanical clutch fan. When starting the engine and when accelerating from a stop, it can tend to roar as the engine reeves up. If that is what you are hearing then yes, it is normal.
