Most of my driving is 30-55 anyways. She runs close to 3000 RPM going 65. It just gets plain scary going more then 70 to be...

    Extremely Annoying Whistle

    Alright I managed to record the sound with my cellphone. It's not very good sound quality, and the Xterrains and exhaust don't help much, but it's something.Ignore the video I was just using it to get the sound portion. You can really hear it when I let off the accelerator right at the end...

    Extremely Annoying Whistle

    I was used to that intake whistle noise....... and I had the KKM for 2 years without it making this noise. If I can, I'll try and find someway of recording it. Although, I could be wrong, I think it is way too annoying to be a normal thing.

    Extremely Annoying Whistle

    For the past year my explorer has been making an extremely annoying whistle noise. It is not the woooooo train horn noise that is stickied above. It is a very high pitched whistle. I didn't notice it as much before because my tires and front suspension made a ton of noise. Now that I have a new...

    any help appreciated. truck's not starting.

    Need Some Opinions on an Explorer.

    well it's like an 88 F-150 and it has a bunch of ladder racks and various equipment on it. With all that equipment and the engine having about 260k on it , the mileage is really below what it should be. So needless to say it's pretty much a beater truck. The blue book on the explorer is 3,600...
