2005 Ford Explorer 4x4

Once in awhile when I take off it sounds like a clunking noise under the driver's floor board and it will act like it's cutting out. Like it doesn't want to go, but then you can pull beside the road (put in park, switch off, restart, put in drive and it want do it). I took it to the Ford dealership this morning and it wouldn't do it for them. The serviceman told me that it probably is because I need 2 new back tires and all my tires thread are not the same. He also said that on these new 4x4 explorer that it is sometimes due the tires. Somekind of sensor. Tell me what you think. I have taken it back to them 5 times and nobody can seem to find the problem. My warranty will be out in 10,000 miles and I figure that's what they are waiting for. To charge me.

    i would say maybe a lose tie rod but you say it does it sitting still? so i dont know exactly but maybe a rod knock which is really bad. usually you will get a rod knock if you run it while its low on oil but it might be to late!

No A/C coming out of dash. It works through defrost vents and floor. Heard noise while driving: sounded like it was under dash. Chas.


Replace your blend door and actuator for the blend door and everything will work fine after that. This is a fairly common problem with all fords. The location is behind the glove box.

What is causing my explorer to **** & clunk with a loud grinding or rubbing noise when i turn corners?


Sounds like you have either ball joint issues, or problems with the CV joints. The other possibility is a problem in the transfer case causing the front axle to bind. You can physically look at the CV joint boots to see if they are torn open and many times you can grab onto the axle and give it a good tug to see if it will move..it should not.

Turns over then cuts off


Clunking noise sounds like a piston to crankshaft problem. You can do a compression test to determine the bad cylinder.

I have a 2005 Trailblazer. I have had the stalilizer bar replaced, new ball joints, greesed the fittings on the ball joints. New calipers, rotos and branke pade. HOWEVER, I still have a clunking sound...


They are really bad for the lower control arm bushings causing a clunk noise. You can't see movement by checking on a hoist, but lubing them will help only temporarily. I did a lot of them under warranty, but being 2005 I'm sure yours has expired. I' would highly recommend changing them to eliminate the clunk noise.

It sounds like your transfer case needs servicing. Drain the fluid & check for metal particles. Some of the older trucks required reversing to disengage the 4x4

Clunking and grinding noise


My 2003 F150 Supercrew would not engage in 4x4, it ended up being the shifting fork in the front end, cost me $200.
