Loud thumping and whinning noise


It sounds like you have a lot of wear on your ping and pinion gears in the rear end. Ford has a product you can purchase from their parts dept that will help with the noise but eventually you will need to get the gears replaced. The product is a friction modifier designed just for rear ends.

I have a 1998 Mercury Mountaineer when i'm driving down the road with the gas pushed in or the cruise control on it drives perfect shifts kinda hard tho but when i let off the gas or turn the cruise...


It could be your shift solenoid, or the wiring assembly for the shift solenoid, Ford has a TSB for it, it could also be a valve body gasket, I know the older explorers/mountaineers had issues with those as well.

What is the clacking noise under hood of 1998 ford explorer. Sounds like something is coming loose.


Hi,
1. Is your oil level ok?
2. Is the noise coming from the top of the engine area? If it is, you may have excessive clearance on a valve lifter. If this is the case, you could have a hydraulic lifter stuck.
Hope this helps... Good luck!

If the vehicle is moving I would suggest the look at the wheel bearings. they could be warned out.
