Chirping clicking noise started at rear of engine about a week ago. 178,000miles on engine. Ford aerostar 3.0.
I loaned out the van; it came back with the side door not being able to open. I've tried locking, unlocking, prying, and removing the top inside panel, but not a budge. How do I get it open before it can even be fixed?
Has been running rough for a while. Happened before and I put it in neutral and pushed it forward then in drive then park and it started right up. Then drove 1,00 miles no problem. Each time after sitting a day or two problem returns.
I get a loose feeling clunk when going over bumps and potholes, I have high pitched whine on turn. Thick sludge is present on driveline/ujoint side of diff housing. Previous owner replaced broken trans with rebuilt one from wreaking yard before I purchased it. It shifts smooth but now diff sounds like axle on right is loose and sloppy and wheel is following suit as well can hear clunk at diff housing as well. No axle seal leaks at the wheel bearings can be found by my inspection. What should I do? Have done similar repair on my Toy 4Runner but only replaced bearings and seals with inspection of diff showed low fluid and no metal shavings present in drained fluid.
