Question about 1995 Ford Explorer

1 Answer

I started my explorer yesterday and noticed a sort of hissing sound. Obviously it is more noticable when I am sitting idle. It sounds as if it is comming from under the hood. I just had a new radiator put in a little over a week ago. But the sound does not seem to be comming from there.

I have a 2006 H3 and I just noticed red fluid leaking from the front end yesterday but today there is no leak. I did hear a strange hissing or whistling like sound when I accelerated. Is this somethin

Most likely one of the transmission cooling lines which go from the transmission to the side of one or the radiator expansion tanks has rusted through. It is making that noise because you are driving it with no transmission fluid in it. If you continue to drive it you will break the trasmission.

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.

Air around break petal

It sounds as though the diaphragm on your vacuum assist has ruptured. This will cause a hissing sound and less brake you may also notice a change in the engine idle speed or a rough idle until the hissing stops.
