Question about 2001 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer


HELLO, when accelerating there is a roar under...down low, sounds like under about where the driver's feet are......can hear it better when starting from a stop....the harder you push on the gas pedal the louder the roar....if you take off easy there is no sound or roar. even when the roar is happening, there is no shutter in the steering wheel, or front end at all. to me it sounds / feels like in the drive train somehow, thank you for your help.

    I have the same exact problem as roaringfront. This is not a wheel bearing issue.

98 lincoln continental making noise when not accelerating. No noise when in park but when driving and ease of gas noise starts until I begin to accelerate again.

Hi Audrey:
I would be suspicious of a worn universal in the drive train.
When under load, the pressure hold the joint tight so there is no noise. When not under load, the slack in the joint allows it to move, making the noise.
To track it down I would put the car on a hoist so the wheels can be turned back and forth. the slack component will soon be identified.

Just had oil changed 2002 continental have vibration and low roar sound

OK, 1st of all the oil change has nothing to do with vibrations or low roar noise. So not to worry about that. However I suspect that you have an exhaust system issue. Check to see if there is a leak. Also check to see if the car lift did any damage to you exhaust system when oil changed. This might well be the case...damaged when on lift to change oil...
Hope this helps

Loud noise when I accelerate

Sounds are kind of hard to describe. Bad exhaust noise can be noticed more when the exhaust is rushed in acceleration. Valve rattle can be created on acceleration as well as "spark knock".

Sometimes an air induction leak can roar when the car is speeded up. Sometimes an air filter is not fully sealed in its' duct and will make noise when drawing in air.

In park with engine running everything sounds fine and smooth as can be. all fluid levels are good. when i put it in gear it sounds and feels fine. when i start rolling i hear a roar. it doesn't drive...

You might have the front wheel bearings checked out. First drive it on some curves and bear left and then bear right see which way quiets it down. That really only works if it is in the front, however the rear ones do go bad as well, however it is usually the front ones that go with a roar. Hope this helps

I have a 4x4 explorer and it makes a roaring sound from front end is this normal for this model to do this

This model explorer is equipped with a mechanical clutch fan. When starting the engine and when accelerating from a stop, it can tend to roar as the engine reeves up. If that is what you are hearing then yes, it is normal.
