The airplane taking off sound is most likely a hole or gap in your exhaust system. A few metal shavings are not a big problem. You should probably replace that oil to avoid wear but its common to find a few metal shavings in your gear box.

Sounds like you need brakes or there is a rock stuck in between the caliper and backing plate.

Seel Immediate repairs before you loose your brakes alltogether.

Sound like you are having axle issues. Check the front and rear axles on a lift or off the floor on stand. Rotate the wheel by hand in foward and reverse rotation. If you hear click noises or hard to rotate then I am pretty sure the axle assembly are going bad. Also while the jeep are off the floor check your transfer case for oils for any metal shaving.

first off check your differential fluid in the rear axle make sure it doesnt have metal shavings in it, best way to tell is put your finger in the fill hole on the rear end/pumpkin and get the oil on your fingure if there is any and shine a light on it if its all sparkly then you have a big problem and need to start tearing into the rear end, possible problems...
spider gears, alxe bearings. and also check the U joint for play in the bearings of the U joint on the drive shaft that will sometimes chatter as well.

Increasingly loud noise coming from rear of '02 2WD 3.7L liberty


Spider gears are not difficult to replace...however, if they are worn, usually this contaminates the lube and can cause damage to carrier as well as pinion bearings...Those require precise settings with special tools and lots of experience to replace. Since you have had the noise for a long time, I can safely assume that debris has been building all that time. Spider gear set is not cheap...You may want to risk doing the job, but I would likely find another exact match, drum to drum replacement in a scrapyard. Generally I will only recommend a spider gear replacement if you have snapped a gear in half...an immediate failure
does not generate the kind of fine metal that wear does.

REAR AXLE PROBLEMS ON 1997 DODGE RAM


did you check your transaxle fluid level? drain/replace transaxle fluid dont forget the friction modifier additive. it is required for proper function of your limited slip. signs of a failing differential are metal shavings in the bottom of the case, worn ring/pinion grooves. the other issue with your shift problem could be a failing shift solenoid, however, a vacuum leak will cause crappy shifts because your trans relies on good vacuum to shift.
