It comes out of that when I hit the brakes. Could this be the rear axel?
They both are Ford ranger but one a stick shift
It's like the old shifting modules in the old cars is not working
the noise is louder (or accompanied with) when turning; just noticed some squealing when making a turn into parking space; the high pitched humming (higher and lower with engine speed) seems louder when engine warm, 5 speed manual, engine light on continuously
