Rumble strip problem. acceleration makes it go away???

Rumble strip problem. 2005 xterra. when I am in overdrive gear at about 60 miles per hour. rpm between 1000 and 2000. I have my foot lightly on the gas(kind of coasting) and all of a sudden I get rumble strip effect. I step on the gas and it goes away. this only happens at these speeds and rpm's if i take of the overdrive and my vehicle runs at 2000 rpms and above the problem doesn't occur. Please advise what this could be. thanks

Look at your coolant. if it looks like coffee or its thick or beige in color, than you need a transmission and radiator replaced. your radiator failed. the build in cooler to be specific, which caused your trans fluid to mix with cooant and trans got contaminated,. your trans is junk.need to replace it with new radiator. make sure to flush out your trans cooler lines also. some of the contaminated fluid gets trapped inside of them. you want to have the system clean as much as possible.

SOURCE: High pitched electronic/dentist drill sound when accelerating.

Probably the front differential, your probably hearing the famous differential gear whine. Change the oil, put Lucas for gears in it. You can get a hand operated oil pump to **** it out through the dip stick if it has one. Then fill it with the recommended amount.

Sounds like you have water in the gas. Are you in cold country? The whole country is right now. Anyway, if that is the problem, It could have easily come from the gas station, there tanks condensate too, Get a can of dry gas. If that is not it, get the code checker on there and see what it says, could be an o2 sensor, something in the air horn sensor. a bunch of things most people don't even know exist. hope this helps.

SOURCE: intermittent rumbling sound in transmission

Do you have the problem when you turn on the car as well? I had this same problem, turns out the alternator was going bad. A few months later the alternator went. After the alternator was replaced, the problem went away.

2006 ford explorer shudder at 40 miles per hour intermittent


If you feel it in the brake pedal and/or steering wheel you have a bad brake pulsation in the front brakes. Just replace the rotors as having them turned or machined will make them warp sooner due to the loss of material from machining. More cost effective to just replace them. If this vehicle has a 4 speed automatic......shift down into D to hook-up to the engine thru the transmission to help slow the vehicle down long hills like mountain driving. GET IT OUT OF OVERDRIVE TO SAVE THE BRAKES.
Hope this solves your problem.

My 1999 ford expidition sounds like its shifting in overdrive when i reach about 40 miles per hour, the engine gets loud sounds a jet taking off.


You have it backwards

What you hear is engine noise from
higher rpm, because your trans is not
upshifting, as a result of your input on
the gas pedal

You need to have a trans or repair shop find out why
you have a delayed or no shift condition

When you get to 4th or 5th gear (overdrive) you also
get torque converter lock-up & things should get quieter

Rpm are way high. at 60 miles an hour the overdrive kicks in, rpm shoot up to 4000


Either the torque converter isn't staying locked-up
or your in third gear,not od, as you suggest.

In OD, which is fourth gear, rpm goes down, not up

So you know you have to go to a trans shop

Drive it like that one more day & you will ruin it,
as I suspect may have happened already

All gears are working, but once I reach 30 miles per hour the RPM's race without further acceleration


is this a three speed trans? or 4spd w/overdrive? either way i believe you have a pressure problem whether a torque converter or a trans pump. I was wondering how you know all gears worked if it will only do 30 mph as the 4th or overdrive usually wont engage at that speed. but here say,

Feels like im driving over rumble strips


Sounds like you have a bearing-s going bad in the drive line someplace [ wheel bearing, u-joint, Diff gears, etc.] But may be a loose wheel.

Abs light, overdrive light comes on at the same time


ABS has got to do with the braking system while the overdrive is meant for activation of the auxilliary/ extra speed gear when driving over 60 miles per hour.

I will advice you run a scan on the car.

Good luck.

4000 rpm at 70 miles per hour


You should have another gear "5th" at 70mph your tacho should read about 2500 rpm.
Make sure you don't need to depress something or push the gear stick against a spring to select 5th.
Is there a gear layout on top of the gearstick knob, do you have 5th gear on there?
The highest gear ratio is a little over 1 to 1 so at 70 mph you would expect 3500 rpm, but, it is a little over 1 to 1 so it will be closer to 2500rpm.
