I have a 1996 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD. Last week it started to make a loud grinding sound when I would coast downhill. Small amount of acceleration would make the sound go away. Today it went **** up. Loud grinding noise when I would put it in gear but no movement and when it is in park it will still roll freely. The sound seems to come from the transfer case, but my Overdrive light keeps flashing.

My 93 Wagoneer is 4WD all time. Pulled into town doing about 35mph and heard a loud knock. It would do it a few seconds after taking off from a stop and when It would try to shift. Before I could get where I was going it quit alltogether. I had nothing in 4 wheel high. Even if you put it in Park it will still roll. 4 wheel low works just fine but now in 4 wheel high when you put it in gear (reverse, drive and lower gears) it make a spinning grinding noise sometimes it will stop if you put it in

Got on E-Bay a cheap 1987 Honda Civic CRX w/5speed Manual Transmission....Car runs great except when you drive down the road no matter what gear you are in a loud grinding noise comes from what I have been able to determine is either the transaxle, or the axles. It is definitely not the brakes because when you apply them the noise does not go away...and the brake pedal feels strong not mushy.... The noise continues even when you put the transmission in neutral and shut off the engine. The axles

My 1996 Audi A6 Quattro with automatic transmission makes a loud grinding noise when (after driving) I try to put the transmission into Park. The grinding is also in Neutral. The other gears also seem to operate normally. The steering wheel does not lock when the car is turned off in Park. Consequently, the key cannot be removed. Any ideas?

I have a 2000 Frontier V6 Auto Crew 4x4 with an odd 4x4 issue. When using reverse, the transmission makes a quiet popping noise both when turning or going straight back. When I put it into drive, add accelerate above 25mph, there is a gear grinding noise that worsens when speed increases. If I place the truck into 4x4 while driving, it will make a large thunk, the grinding will stop, and I can put it back into 2wd and no grinding till I put in in park or reverse. Any ideas?

The last 2 weeks when i would hit the gas the engine would rev up and then it would catch after about 2 seconds and go. Last night i heard a loud grinding noise, almost as if my muffler had fallen and was dragging the ground. I was a half a mile from home so i decided to make it home and I did. When i got home the muffler was in tack, but this morning when I put it in gear it does nothing. Does this sound like the transmission?

My 1997 Plymouth Breeze has a very loud screeching sound when I put it in Park or in Neutral. When I put it in gear it quits making the sound. when left in park it blows the fuse to the starter. I turn the car off right away and it will start right up again without the noise. Only after I run in gear and put it in park or neutral the noise returns. Note I did change the fluid and pan, gasket and filter on the transmission a little over a month ago. Thanks for any suggestions or advice you may ha

I have a 2005 silverado 1500 HD 4x4 that is popping out of gear. When it happens it slams out pretty hard and then if I put in park or any gear it just makes an awful grinding noise. So I put it in neutral and put it in 4high and then it will slam hard back in to gear. It has 98,000 miles on it. I took it to a transmission shop and the mechanic hooked up his diagnostic computer to it and we went for a ride. He said everything checks out good and there is nothing in the history that even shows up

We have a 2004 Ford Expedition when you turn right there is a noise coming from the wheel on the driver side. At first it was like a grinding noise so we changed the inner/outer tie rods. The noise continued so we changed the rotors. Now, the noise is not as loud but like a tum tum tum noise only when turning what can it be. We can't continue to put money in this truck times are tough right now.


There are several components that could cause noise from the front when turning. The components to be concerned about are, Wheel bearings, Ball Joints, Tie rod Ends, CV joints and brake rotors. \015\012Wheel Barrings:\015\ ... 2004 Ford Expedition
