Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Auto 4WD SportTrac Trans makes ocassional clunking noise when slowing down from 50-70 mph...Just releasing gas pedal to slow down... First happen when I had to quick stop at 70mph pressed O/D shifter button to turn it off to help stopping... Noise dissapears when step on gas pedal or, shift to neutral or slowing reaching 35-40mph speed... All gears change at normal and O/D seems to work fine...
Sounds like youi may have a few serious problems going on to have that kind of back lash occuring at higher speeds. I have experiance with low spped clunks on Bronkos and your type of vech being a car dealer. One you might try for low speed clunk on take off and braking at stop likts just completeing a stop? Pull the drive shaft and lubricate the splin - two check your leaf springs for weakness and wore bushings - take a look at your shocks - three u bolts holding springs to rear axle housing may be letting the axle housing actually dip or tweak or all those thing in combination - now you may have some serious slop in the pig - transfer case may be causing that clunk - as far as high spped clunk and activity you have a serous problem and you just might drop the transferr case have an accident fliping over..............Mike South Bend Indiana don't just keep driving and making problem worst...........
