Howl sound?

Hey guys, I have a howling noise that sounds like its coming from either the rear end or tranny and can't seem to figure out what it is. It howls only in 4th and 5th gear. My dad said it might be a bearing but I'm not sure.

Ya I'd say you have a worn bearing, how long has the noise been there because your ring and pinion could be compounded. If you leave it to long you may be looking at a new gear set. Did you check for leaks from the diff and tranny? That's where I'd check, also check to see if the noise is the same when on the throttle and off when in 4th and 5th

Does the pitch change with speed?

Throttle on noise, throttle off no noise or very little but mainly when the throttle is on

Re: Howl sound?

Sounds to me like you have a bearing(s) gone in your differential had the same situation/conditions on my 04 gt

I agree. I need to have the rear end rebuilt in my wife's explorer. I had to replace the axle seals and when I popped off the diff cover it was nice and sparkly.....metal shavings everywhere.

So is this something I could do myself or do I need a shop to do it? My dad is a mechanic and we have most tools. And if info have to take it to a shop what am I looking at cost wise

If your rear end needs to be rebuilt and your not familier with it then take it to a shop. First you need to pinpoint where the sound is coming from.

Re: Howl sound?

Ya your definately right, you need to diagnose which bearing(s) are gone. And remember when you get into your diff when replacing one bearing you should replace them all. And your crown and pinion gear set may require replacement.
Your looking at probably $700 for a rebuild kit and then labour on top of that if your not doing it yourself. Probably $1000 to $1500 for everything together. Just a guess you'd have to get a qoute
