Question about 2002 Ford Explorer
My explorer has less than 100,000 miles. I have a roar in the rear end. Is it common for the rear end to wear out this quick? ABS light stays on and the mechanic who checked it and told me about the wear said it was the ABS speed sensor on the rear end. I replaced and lasted less that a day before the light came back on. Is this normal for when the rear end wears out.
Ford had a problem with the ABS sensor leaking moisture into the rear end. This caused the rear end to fail. I had some noise in although the ABS light came on and thats when a took it in. Mine occurred at around 75k and was covered under extended warranty. Rear end will need to be replaced.

I have heard of the 8.8 rear ends premeturely wearing out. Did you buy this car new or used? If you bought it used, you never know how the previous owner drove the car. Remove the rear cover and inspect the oil and gears inside. If the oil smells burnt, the rear end is most likely junk.
