2003 escape xls 4x4

The other day had to tow it home, had used a car dolly kept it in neutrual, did not go over 45mph, for about 35 miles. When we started to tow heard a loud squealing noise, made sure that the OD was off, now we have a low rubing or cluncking noise comeing from the back end. Also had noticed that the rear end was leaking so took the cover off and replaced the oil and added new sealent to the cover no more leaks there. The transmission is shifting good.

The reason for the towing is that it blew the # 1 plug.

Raise it up on stands and run it to pinpoint the location.
