2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Q&A
2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac Question: I hear a thump thump thumb in the front end .
The thumping you are experiencing could be a few different things. In order of likelihood in my opinion: 1) faulty tire. A tire or tires that have a flat spot or abnormal wear will make many possible noises - thumping is one of them. 2) A wheel bearing. A faulty wheel bearing may grind, but can also resonate in a thumping manner. 3) Is this a 4 wheel drive truck? Your transfer case and axles may make some noise. 4) your drive shaft make make this noise. Have a good inspection performed - should be fairly easy to see the noise in action under the correct environment. Have a qualified technician help you. https://repairpal.com/directory?address=07060&car_brand_names=Ford Click that link for some techs near you! - DaveJHM
Sounds like mine. My mechanics are doing the rear end differential. Try that! - Roxy456
