    Tach will go up regardless of where the driveline is ‘slipping’, be it internal to the tranny or wheel spin.

    Best thing is to take it for a test drive yourself. If the rpm’s spike then the truck takes off with a clunk or bang that would suspect transmission slippage. Have you checked the fluid level?

    Wheel spin is quite noticeable and will be a more gradual engagement as the tire(s) start to grip.

    Good luck!

    I'm sure your wife is very attentive, but what may help is if you take your Explorer for a drive to the exact same areas where she says it spins and let us know your thoughts.

    Since your wife mentioned it happens at a particular intersection, could it be that there are those wide white painted lines across the road?
    If so, those can be quite slick. I know because I almost went down a few times on my motorcycle.
    It would not be hard to get some wheel spin when taking off and crossing those painted lines.
    Just a thought.

    Hi All, thank you for all the information. To date I have not been able to get her Explorer to do this while I was driving. I will keep an eye on it. and update you all if I find the cause. I will invest in a new set of tires when it gets a little closer to winter.
    Again Thanks to everyone,
    Jim
