#1 of 88 clunk-tap-tap-tap-tap
Jun 21, 2007 (1:22 pm)
Hey guys, i have 2000 expedition, was backing out of driveway, place car in drive and heard a loud clunk in the rear somewhere. Since then, i will occasionally hear a wop-wop-wop-wop, almost like a flat tire sound, or something rubbing. Sometimes it is more metalic sounding. i have been all over the rear end of my truck, removed the wheels and brakes, inspected my coils, shocks, control arms, etc. I don't see any cracks broken bolts, ....nothing. It drives fine, it just makes a lot of noise at very random times, there is no consistency as to when or what conditions it happens with. There may be a slight leak of some sort where the rear axle/housing thing meets the tire. ALso, i believe i have narrowed the sound down to the right rear. Any ideas?

Umm, just a couple shots in the dark. I'm not sure how loud the clunking is, but you may try looking at your roof rack. The knobs that tighten it down may be loose and that will cause a lot of noise intermittently. Also, you could try looking at where your brake lines run to the rear wheels. Sometimes they'll pop out of the little clips and rattle around. Finally, inspect your engine mounts and the surrounding area. Every so often, if the engine mount or something similiar fails, the engine or tranny or whatever will rattle around. You won't notice any driving differences but it will end up shaking your catalytic converter and exhaust assembly around, this tends to make a lot of noises, with vibration from time to time. Oh yeah, if the big bump you heard pulling out was you hitting something with your rim, you may have bent the rim and this will cause noise and vibrations too. Those are all the things I've ever found. Hope it gives you some ideas.
#3 of 88 2007 Expedition Dash Squeak

Recently test drove '07 Limited. Overall impression was fairly solid, but could not get past persistent noise/squeaking coming from dash area. Anyone know whether this is endemic of all recent model Expeditions? Any fixes or recalls? Just wondering whether this could have been isolated to this particular road test vehicle.

I have an 07 and it has that 'squeak' from the dash. It appears to come from the vent piece that is attached to the dash up near the glass. I think they need to put more felt tape on these pieces.
#6 of 88 2007 ford expo noise
Sep 06, 2007 (1:46 pm)
Please help...While driving at a very slow rate of speed or when turning (after driving for 45mins or more with 4-5 passengers) my expo makes a very loud and annoying metal to metal grinding/squeaking noise...the noise is loudest in the right area when you stop you can get on the running boards and rock the expo and it will still make the noise but my next morning it won't do that again. The dealer can never re-create the problem so they have no clue..any suggestions on where to begin?

Had the same problem with a 1998 Lincoln Navigator. Could never figure out if it was coming from the right front dash or the passenger door. Dealership never figured out either. My 2007 Expition doesn't have any noises yet. The Navigator was almost a cracking sound.

Do you have a limited slip differential? It could be the differential.
#10 of 88 2002 EB Expo
Oct 30, 2007 (7:14 pm)
I have a 2002 EB Expo, I have noticed some kind of whining noise coming from behind the driver's side dashboard. I first noticed the noise a couple of months ago, but it was very faint. I took it to my mechanic, he could barely hear the noise. Since then, the noise has increased. It's no longer a faint noise, it is now very pronounced, but it's only when sitting idle. Once I give it some gas, the noise goes away. As long as I'm driving I hear no noise, the moment I stop at a red light, the noise resumes. I have lifted the hood listening for the noise, but I hear nothing from the engine area. I wonder has anyone else experienced anything like this before?
