95 Taurus problem

My car is making some weird noise. it's coming from somewhere under the back seat area. i can feel the vibration when i put my hand on the floor of the back seat. did anybody have the same problem? or does anybody know what's the problem?

Re: 95 Taurus problem

It could be any number of things. Exhaust is loose, rear suspension issues, car was in collision and parts not reassembled right. Would be helpful to know...

What sort of noise?
When does it occur... idle, certain speeds, only when going over bumps?
All the information that you can give will help in determining the issues at hand.

Re: 95 Taurus problem

ok... first it occured when ever i was turning right. like a 90 degrees right. but now... it occurs when i'm staying in front of a trafic light, going reverse, turning right and half of the times when i'm parked.

oh, yeah, and when i change from reverse (makes noise) to drive, the noise stops. and when i'm going over some cracked roads, it makes noise (when the whole car is vibrating i guess?)

the sound is like... a fake drum beat noise? like... dddddddddddd.....

Re: 95 Taurus problem

you sure it is coming from the rear? Have you loooked under the car to see if your exhaust is loose? Is there excessive play in your wheel? Dos your car float down the road following the grooves in the road and not stay straight?

Re: 95 Taurus problem

yeah... i looked under the car and... i found out that when i'm shifting through the gears, the whole exhaust moves up or down depending on the gear. the engine actually moves when shifting gears pushing or pulling the exhaust along with it. when it's in reverse, the exhaust rubs against the body of the car making the noise i described earlier. i was wondering if this is normal or if it might have something to do with the motor mounts.

Re: 95 Taurus problem

I would look at your motor mounts and see if they are degraded. More than likely they are.
