It can vary from u-joints to the ring & pinion. You will need to apply pressure to the DRIVESHAFT to inspect the u joints for looseness. Generally u can move the driveshaft by hand when the trans is set in nuetral to check the ring & pinion for noise
Turn it back & forth quickly to hear any noise

Rincon. Why is there grinding noise in rear end and rear wheels will not drive?


Could be bad u-joints, wheel bearings. Raise rear of vehicle and rotate wheel by hand, if noisy remove and replace. Hope that helps.

Shuttering or vibration when accelerating from stop or low speed. now makes clicking/slight clanking noise at low speeds


cv joints are what normally make that clicking m noise at low speeds ,more prevalent when turning a corner
as to the other faults , run the fault codes as it sounds like a random misfire and may be fuel pressure or injector related

Accelleration noises of the magnitude you descibe makes me think the engines crank shaft bearings have gone. Has the oil pressure light come on recently and what's the oil level like.
Without being there to hear it, it's very difficult to diagnose. You should detect noises and rattle if you rev it when in neutral if it is the engine. If the engine is smooth in neutral and the oil is good you may have a bad diff or cv joint

98 ford mustang shift stick started making a clanking sound yesterday when backing up


If it makes a clanking sound when you switch from neutral to drive or neural to reverse than i would say you have a u-joint issue. If it you get noise when you accelerate and coast then your rear differential is out of alignment

Clanking sounds when i back up and put it in drive also when i turn corners


Get your differential fluid checked and make sure you get synthetic for the rear if indicated. The clanking on turns reduces the possibility of the U-joints being the culprit. The driveshaft would give you noise going from reverse to drive, but in turns it is likely the clutches in the rear axle.

A four wheel drive can cause noise in all directions if the front drive has bad joints.

Terrible noises


This would sound like possible differential noises, possibly a spider gear has a broken tooth or other defect. You could raise the backend off the ground (both wheels or one wheel at a time); place shifter in neutral, then have a friend turn one wheel, while the other is held in place (or left in contact with ground). If you get similiar (but probably less terrible), then remove the diff. cover (pan for oil needed), and look for any visible defects. Services of a mechanic might be needed.
