Having problems with your 1998 Ford Explorer ?
I have a 1998 Ford Explorer. It sounds like something is clanging on the drive shaft when i accelerate, esp from starting out. It happens also when I turn the wheel sharply ( like when parking in a parking lot). When the car is on the highway I don't notice it until i begin to drive on an upgrade.
Hi! Ok there are few things to look at. First please replace your automatic transmission fluid. Teh atf may be burnt that it may cause unusual sounds. The second will be your gear oil. Please replace your gear oil for it can create annoying noise when worn. Try it and see how it goes. Hope this helps and have a good one!
