Yes, finally got it figured out. Took it to Tri -City Transmission Service in AZ and their guy knew exactly what it was. They removed the valve assembly body from the transmission and replaced the #7 Check Ball in the main control valve body. Said the #7 check ball was beat up and replaced it. Truck works great and no problems since. Total cost was $451.33 and they washed my truck.

I have a 2001 Ford Expedition XLT AWD 5.4L, I experience the same humming/ vibration as well. I was going take it to transmission place for a trans fluid change and replace the transfer case fluid as well. Will that help with problem? My truck only has 70, 000 miles on it. Or should I tell them to remove the valve assembly body and check first?

#62 of 88 Expedition noise
Jan 31, 2010 (8:58 am)
I have a 2004 Ford Expedition. The vehicle makes a noise after it has been driven and parked. The noise which comes from underneath sounds like a bong....Maybe a heatshield that has deformed during driving and once the shield cools, returns to its normal shape??? Any ideas as to how to ID and fix this issue?
#63 of 88 Exhaust pops

I am hoping someone can help me figure out what sounds like a loud pop in the exhaust when you start the expedition and let it warm up. Sounds like expansion and contraction pops?????
It is towards the rear of the car.
alwaysford2 helped me so much when the heater in the rear stopped. I am hoping someone can help me with this annoying noise.

Probably just a heat shield expanding and contracting.

Is this something i should worry about? It is just an annoying noise so far when it pops.

You could try to isolate where it is coming from if you lay near it, then give a little tweak on it here and there to change it's dynmaics. Might be able to make it go away.
#67 of 88 Screaming/Whining Noise in Front of 2003 Expedition...HELP PLEASE!!
Mar 20, 2010 (6:28 am)
I have a 2003 Expedition Eddie Bauer with AWD/4WD with the 5.4 engine. It has 60,000 miles on it and has ran great for a long time.
The other day it started making a sound that I have never heard a car make before. When you are driving down the road when you hit about 25 mph a pronounced SQUEALING or SCREAMING type of noise comes from what seems to be the FRONT end, DRIVERS SIDE tire area. It is a continuous noise and will not stop unless I slow down to less than 5 mph or stop. As soon as I accelerate, it's there again. It is EASILY heard by passing cars too.
My step dad and I have been trying to figure it out. He is VERY good mechanically. The vehicle shifts into other gears smoothly, revving the engine doesn't make a bit of difference in the noise. I have switched it into all the different 4wd modes with no change at all. I have switched on and off everything I can in the interior to see if it makes any difference in the sound and it does not. Today we replaced the front brake shoes and that didn't change anything. It was due anyway.
It doesn't really sound like a grinding, just a high pitched squeal. My Step dad said it reminds him of blowing up a balloon and then pinching the rim of the balloon and letting the air out. You know that sound right? Well that's what I have whenever I am over 15mph.
There are no other strange noises. The motor revs and runs great and sounds great. Neither of us can detect any problems what so ever with the tranny. It simply sounds like there is something right behind the front end drivers side wheel that is causing the horrid noise.
Can anyone help us figure out what is going on here? Any similar experiences with yours?
Thanks for your help and time.

This sounds very familiar. I have a 2004 and around 100k miles my left front wheel bearing went out. Shortly after that the right front wheel bearing went out.
To verify you could jack up the front driver side like you were going to change the tire. Spin the tire and you should hear and feel if the bearings are bad.
