Worrying noise

Ford Explorer 2003  160000 miles
As I start the engine of my vehicle, an annoying noise becomes audible but after driving for some minutes it sometimes stops, and others it can even be softly heard all the time. This noise has become more and more frequent and it seems as though one of the cogwheels is displaced.

Your problem are the chains, which I certainly recommend to change.

Broken studs cause hot air leaks and subsequent gasket damages. As it is a metal gasket it vibratres and that is the noise you hear when starting the vehicle. You should then change the studs to some more resistent ones and your problem will be solved.

Fuel pump has been replaced twice. Right after repair noticeable growling noise under hood while driving and sitting with engine running. Bad gas mileage. Could it be another bad fuel pump part?

Two days ago I was driving backwards and, as I sped up, serious noises appeared which made me reduce speed. Ever since then, the vehicle hasn't respond properly to the reverse. Any help before all of the transmission is taken out?

Hi everyone, me again. I wanted to share that finally the problem was solved by simply changing the transmission's reverse band.

Wheel's noise SolvedSolved

Ford Explorer 2006  147 miles
Some days ago my Explorer Eddie Bauer 2006 has started presenting a strange noise in the front right wheel. It seems as if something was damaged and it is stronger every day. I've changed bearings to new ones, and I don't know what else could be the cause.

Raise the front tire and check properly the bearings, one of them must be damaged.

Won't start and some acceleration problems

Ford Explorer 2011 Suv, automatic, 4 wheel drive 690000 miles
So this is the second winter in a row that I verify had to replace my battery multiple times. It's only been a week but again today my car wouldn't start. Also once my car is jumped and running game I'm having problems accelerating. If I need to accelerate quickly my check engine light will come and the car almost stalls. Then sometimes while in drive (usually I notice this when on the highway) sometimes my car will de-accelerate for a couple of seconds and I can hear a high pitched noise. I have no idea what this could be and when my car was just in to have the battery replaced my internal computer showed no other issies. I own a 2011 Ford Explorer with about 70,000 miles on it. I am the second owner and I love in Pennsylvania so our winters can be pretty cold!
