2000 Expedtion BLOWN REAR DIFFERENTIAL COVER
A few days ago I started hearing this thumping noise and vibration noise on low speed (30mph)... I thought I need to balance my wheels.. but the sound got worse and ticking noise all of a sudden... next thing I know I hear this clunk then grinding metal noise like I'm dragging something on the street. people from the side started telling me that I'm leaking oil. as soon as I pull over to investigate the leak. As soon I look down I see this big hole on the rear differential cover... it basically blew up from inside out...

1. Head gasket leaking oil $1800
2. Alternator $500
3. Transmission seize (Ford had to completely remove it) $3800
4. Ignition coil $380
5. and many more that I can think off....
