SOURCE: There is a loud noise at 45mph.

Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps

SOURCE: transmission slips bad on 2006 ford explorer

Needs to be reprogrammed at the Ford dealer. They had a software problem early on with the new 2006, but a software update fixed mine. Transmission was shifting weird and clunking. Now mine is fine.

that sounds like a stabilitrack or traction control light. you may need to take the vehicle into a dealer to get it hooked up to a computer to see what the fault is.

Have you had the codes run?
For one thing,make sure your coolant is full,at least 50/50 antifreeze and water mix, and no air bubbles In the radiator or system. That means you should bleed it to make sure.
Probably it's electrical though. When you turn on the heater or AC, your fan pulls some amps,and if voltage drops enough,it could affect the other electronics.
Must be a pretty common problem. Check the FORD forums and you'll come up with more answers. don-ohio (:^)

Band tightening on transmission

'Bands' as they are sometimes called, are in automatic transmission systems and stop the different planet wheels from turning to give you gears. It is unlikely in either type of gear box.

2006 Ford Freestyle wrench light comes on and goes into limp home mode how do you fix

There is no way to get around a proper repair on a computer controlled transmission, that is wishful thinking. What is the fault code that is memory? Have you even run the system scan yet?

My car when I drive it feels like there is an earthquake in my front seat. My check engine light is also on. Its a 2006 Ford Freestyle V6 with approx 61,000 miles on it.

I would check your tires for a seperation, and then diagnose your check engine light to see what trouble code its storing. Hope this helps.
