Question about 2005 Ford F-150
I'm a bit frustrated and puzzled on what is going on with my pickup. its a 2005 F150 4x4 with about 30,000 miles on it. Last week, I was in 2 wheel drive and all of a sudden, I heard it making a LOUD whirling/buzzing noise. Now, if you put it in 4wheel drive it doesn't make the noise and when you take it out, it will go for a ways before making it again. There is no shimmying in the front end or jerking. I called the local ford dealer ship and I took it in today. At first they said that it could be something that had gotten water in in but today they said the only thing they found was a hose with a hole in it. Honestly, it didn't make the sound while they had it and didn't make it until we where on our way home again. We live 45 miles from the dealer and I am paranoid I guess. This doesn't sound like any leaking hose I have ever heard. Am I just over reacting?
Just had the same problem with my 05 fx4. Turns out it was an IWE sensor on the front end. $120 later and the problem is fixed

I have had to replace hub assys. on late model truck like yours with low mileage. They weren't a very good unit what so ever from the factory. The good thing about it is that it doesn't take long at all to replace them. A long set of lock ring pliers and basic sockets and a flat head screwdriver is all you need.

I had the same problem, and after 8 visits to the dealership they found that the locking actuator for locking the passenger wheel in 4x4 was bad. They showed it to me and it had metal pieces all over in it and was totally shot.

I had the same problem and it was the 4 wheel drive valve at the passenger side on the fire wall it's a little $36.00 part the problem is that the water runs on it from the wippers and shorths it out. easy to change.I can get you the part number if you need it.
