#18 of 27 Re: 2004 Ford Explorer- Road noise & high pitch sounds [clusterbuster]
Oct 19, 2010 (12:08 pm)
Hi, I have noticed that I have started to have that same whining road noice. I talked to my mechanic on it, he said that it is prob. from my now failing power steering pump. He said he has heard the noise before, from not just Explorers, when the power steering pump is going. I also get a almost belt sqweeking sound along w/. the whining sound. I have a '03 XLT V8 w/. 140,000 miles, it has bn. pretty gd., the only real issues was a heat sensor went bad in my transmission and caused it to over heat, and i warped the 1st and 2nd gears in it and then randomly just recently, my front pass. axle broke in the middle of me driving, I have not hit anything or bn. off-road, it just broke. Hopefully this will help w/. your road noise issue.
#20 of 27 Explorer: Thumping Noise

have an '03 XLT that I have been hearing/feeling a thumping noise. It only appears to be happening while coasting. The noise stops when I apply the accelorator. It really seems to be worse at slower speeds and when going around turns. I have also noticed, sometimes, that there is a whining/grinding noise coming from the front (i think). I have had the brakes and wheel bearings checked out and they don't appear to be the problem.

#24 of 27 Clicking noise from inside dash?
Apr 18, 2011 (4:23 pm)
Replaced battery on Saturday, the car did great no problems at all. Sunday morning car started with no problem, but there was a clicking noise from inside the dash followed by a very low noise from the horn. Drove it for just a minute and the nosie stopped. Monday drove for 10 - 15 minutes with noise going the entire time. Any ideas on what may be going on?? Thanks in advance
#27 of 27 01 explorer issues
Jul 15, 2011 (5:55 am)
so i just bought a 01 explorer. runs great, but when when i drive between 20 and 45, it gets louder until it hits 45 and it goes back to normal. could it be exauhst issues or is it something to do with the wheels? 136,000 miles and running strong, could eat dinner off the block!
