1996 Ford Bronco Problems

Tubes for the EGR system (exhaust gas recirculation) can break, causing an exhaust leak and noise under the hood.

If there is a vibration or noise at highway speed, it could be from the front driveshaft and may require replacement of the double cardan joint. A double cardan joint is a type of driveshaft joint that uses two universal joints.

If a noise from the rear end is heard when going around turns or after driving at highway speed for an extended period, this could be caused by a failing deferential clutch kit. An updated differential clutch kit available.
