Re: rear end whine

There were some rear diff noise concerns stemming from lube oil concerns
(memory thing). I don't get to work on little stuff much but I do know the
other guys were working on some of these. If you would like, post your VIN
(or send it off list if you have concerns) and I can run it through OASIS to
find any relevant TSBs, etc.

Re: rear end whine

This is a big problem with a number of Fords. My 2002 F-150, FX4, has a
whine. I took it back to the dealer. The took off the cover and inspected
clearances etc. and said it was ok. It still whines. it doesn't seem to have
gotten worse, but it's still there. My wife's 2004 Sport Trac has a whine
when you hit 70. it only has 8000 miles on it. It seems like the problem
here is that Ford doesn't seem to be to concerned or they would have figured
out the problem by now.

Re: rear end whine

That reminds me of the whine my sister and husband's ............. Comet!!!


Remember that car from the 60s? That was the big thing about that car.. that
and the fact that it had child locks in the back that you couldn't open
without a key or something to stick into this little slot to pull them up.
That rear end whine. It's funny how that's one of the things I associated
with my sister and her husband. I was young; they were much older and for
some reason that whine was a defining thing. Anita and Bruce, the ones with
the whine and the locks you can't open :O) They ought to bring back the
Comet, maybe the Falcon too. But leave out the whine. Hey! My father had a
Galaxy and it's rear end was quiet. Comet and Galaxy!! My friend had a Nova.

Re: rear end whine

Ahhh, yes..... "Where were you in '62?".

The waning days of the Stupidbaker...... Ford was trying to market the
Frontenac - a rebadged Falson with the ugliest grille in the world - as a
distinctly Canadian automobile.... the Fairlane Thunderbolt.....

How I sometimes miss those glory days...

Re: rear end whine

I was driving a '61 Vette with two fours, cam and lifters. Yeah, I
miss that too.
