#69 of 88 2000 Exp. EB Noises
Apr 08, 2010 (1:05 pm)
My truck has had a couple of on going symptoms that I can't seem to track down. The first one that showed up is what feels like a lag or resistance from the right side of the truck with a vibration when accelerating. Just yesterday this seems to have turned into a new problem. Now it feels like there is a very large gear that grinds only during about 1/2 of its revolution. I also have noticed that the AW4D never works and putting in it 4WD manually (throwing the switch myself) causes several other interesting noises and takes quite a bit of forward and reverse action to get it back into 2WD. Any help, hints or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

I had the rattling sound from the wheel area too. I took it in to the dealer and they rebuilt part of the transmission which did not solve the problem. The service manager took an interest in the problem and figured it out without lifting the hood. Seems that there is a vacuum valve that controls the 4WD hubs and when they get old they start to leak and the hubs are trying to engage at high speed which causes all the noise. I've got a 2005 Expo with about 50M miles on it. Until now I had never had a problem with it. Once they put the new valve in the noise went away and hasn't come back in a month.

i have a 2003 ford expedition, ive noticed lately that it doesnt have the same power it used to, esp up hills it slows down and then u have to put the pedal to the floor just to make it up the hill. Well, today my wife called me and said she went out and started the vehicle, and it made a loud rattling noise in the front end when she started it, so she turned it off and called me, anyone else have any prob like that, if so, what could it be??

Did you figure this out??
I hope this isn't U-joints I just spent 650 a few months ago to get them fixed.
My truck has been doing this since I changed the brake pads.
#74 of 88 air suspension noise
Sep 10, 2011 (11:59 am)
I have a 1997 Expedition. Sometimes, not always, when I park and turn the engine off, the air suspension system in the rear will make a noise like air escaping from a balloon. I'm guessing this is the air being vented from the suspension, but why doesn't it do it all the time, and how can I stop it? Thanks

did you ever get an answer to this problem? I'm having the same issue.
#76 of 88 noise accelerating or decelerating
Nov 06, 2011 (12:36 pm)
Our 2003 Ford Expedition (Eddie Bauer ed) 2WD with 105,000 miles just began making a grinding noise that sounds like wheels or front end. The noise got worse after towing a light trailer on a 4 hour trip...seems to be more profound on accelerating and more so on decelerating but is unnoticable on idle in park and less noticable at constant high speeds (60 or 70). Had the brakes in front replaced a few months ago and just one week past the oil change. After reading other messages, I am uncertain whether this is a bearing issue or transmission or ?

I am having the same problem and i haven't towed anything.
I would be very interested in the answers you receive. Could you send them to me.
I owe a 04 expedition.

Probably the differential. Had my 03 in for a replacement 175K miles. $2K dealership to rebuild ( replace gears/bearings) $1200 independent shop but opted for one from a junker $800 parts and labor. Lots of issues with the Expeditions with the independent rear suspension diffs. Honestly though, I drove ours with a whine for about 60K miles before getting it replaced.
