    not that kind of squeeling, more of a possible bearing. I replaced the belt tensioner last year. I should mention that is does not happen all the time. Could this be a u-joint? they are the original.

    After listening it sounds as if it is comming from the top left (passenger side) of the vehicle. And it happens aabout 70% of the time.

It is likely the serpentine belt tensioner. although abit unusal that the noise disappears when it is in neutral. can you be more specific where the noise is coming from. and the noise is while you are driving or idling ?

You have a belt that is stretched from a pulley(alternator.p/s pump, water pump, Etc.) that is possibly get weaker because of a bad belt tensioner. Explorer's have weak belt tensioners.

    Is this a deep squeal? It sounds like by your description the axle joint in your front axle. They are larger than a differential u joint, and they do spin because of the transfer case.

Engine makes noise when driving


Are you sure it is the engine. Try putting in neutral as you are slowing down. If the noise is still there then it sounds like a wheel bearing failing

Bad sounds, bad smells from 94 ford explorer


Sounds like you may have a vacuum line off or ruptured going to the EGR valve. The burning smell is probably the catalytic converter. When the engine runs rich you will get a sulfur smell that smells sort of like rotten eggs.

94 ford explorer problems with acceleration


first off, it's a ford. this sounds like a dealer issue and i don't know alot about fords. what i do know is that the cruise control in these vechiles have a default. moisture enters something, i forgot what, shorts out, then vechile accelerates on it's own, even with braking hard. as for not wanting to accelerate, sounds like a tranni problem. sorry i couldn't be more useful.

Trans clunking when slowing down


Sounds like youi may have a few serious problems going on to have that kind of back lash occuring at higher speeds. I have experiance with low spped clunks on Bronkos and your type of vech being a car dealer. One you might try for low speed clunk on take off and braking at stop likts just completeing a stop? Pull the drive shaft and lubricate the splin - two check your leaf springs for weakness and wore bushings - take a look at your shocks - three u bolts holding springs to rear axle housing may be letting the axle housing actually dip or tweak or all those thing in combination - now you may have some serious slop in the pig - transfer case may be causing that clunk - as far as high spped clunk and activity you have a serous problem and you just might drop the transferr case have an accident fliping over..............Mike South Bend Indiana don't just keep driving and making problem worst...........
