Rear end on f-350 makes roaring noise. I checked oil level and it was ok. The oil seems to be very thin. Could wrong oil cause rear end noise?


Differential roaring noise is usually caused by a bearing that is worn or has pitting in the bearing race (half of bearing without rollers). A whining noise would be caused by worn ring and pinion gears. the roaring could be from the carrier bearings (two bearings holding the differential case to the axle housing) or fron the pinion bearings. The fluid is typically heavier but will seem thin when hot. The fluid isn't the causing of the noise but if the wrong fluid is in the differntial it could have caused the bearing to go bad which then causes the noise. good luck.

The rear end is noisy.


Have you had the gear oil in rear end checked,it could be low.If it is full it could be one of the wheel bearings or the ring and pinion gears in rear end worn.If it is a bearing it should be replaced,if ring and pinion and noise isn't to bad I would live with it.

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

After I turn off my car, there is a loud sound like a motor running under the car. Is this from the compressor for the air suspension? I also get a roaring noise when I am driving that comes from the rear...


Then noise you hear after shutting off the car very well might be the air suspension compressor. The air ride system is still activated for a half hour after the vehicle has been shut off. The roaring noise from the rear could be a bad bearing. The rear axle seals don't always leak when a bearing goes out. So it's not a conclusive indication that they are good just because the seals aren't leaking. If your mechanic isn't too versed in differentials it may be advisable to seek an opinion of a reputable transmission shop (however, that may be a difficult task).

My rearend( I think ) is making a roaring noise and fills like it isn't getting power at times when I use the accelerater


Have the rear-end check out (3rd member) center part of rear-end housing, and your rear axle bearing's, axle bearing if bad can also damage rear axle shaft's and will also have to be replaced.

I have a 2004 rx330 and when I take off after about 10mph there is a constant roar sounds like the transmission is not shifting. However the tranny is shifting fine it seems to be coming from the drivers...


sounds to me like either the drive shaft axle bearing is wearing out or the rear end gear on the left side uis going out. check the rear end for gear oil level if its low that could mean your rear end is about to go out.

Axle roar


Could be any one of the bearings in the rear axle. Suggest taking it to a reputable transmission shop to get it diagnosed further.

AC/Heat Fan runs continuously and Rear end roaring noise


Sounds like the wheel bearing on the right rear hub may be defective, that would cause the noise if the tires are ok. As far as the fan goes not sure this isn't working as designed.
