Question about 1997 Ford Explorer AWD
I drive a 1997 Ford Explorer Automatic. 6 cylinder. 4 wheel drive. 147,000 miles. When I drive over approx 35 mph as soon as I let off the gas my rpms drop out, and a very loud whirring type noise comes from under the hood. If I hit the gas again it stops or if I brake back down to usually under 30mph. It does it every single time I go over approx 35mph. As long as I dont let off the gas it doesn't do it. It doesn't seem to have any issues switching gears. As soon as I let off the gas petal the rpms just go down to 0 instantly and the noise starts until i hit the gas again or brake down. It doesnt sound like metal grinding, its whiring/spinning type noise, like maybe something is trying to grap or catch and its not. It is very loud. The suv doesnt vibrate, lurch, rattle etc when it makes this noise. I can drive around all day and as long as I stay under 35 miles per hour it will never make the noise. Any idea? I Already Tried with a mechanic work on it. He said it was a sensor in the transmission but I don't bi live that.

Hi..my name is Keith..and i can think of 3 possible causes..the 1st one is a tire out of balance..sometime the wheel balancing weights come off...the 2nd one is that the belts in a tire is broken..and the 3rd one is..that you have a warped brake rotor..it shouldnt cost much to have a shop to look at it and fix it..i hope this has helped
