Hi, I hope that someone could guide me in the right direction on this issue. I have a 2007 ford edge SEL AWD with about 150,000 miles on it and it's starting to make some knocking noise from the rear whenever I accelerate hard. When I come to a complete stop, ease on the gas to move, the knocking goes away until I reach about 20mph. I hoping that is not my diff because I heard that would cost a lot of money to replace. I did a little research and came upon this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OwrH2kBoyhw. Is this the right direction that I should be looking into in getting this issue fix or should I be looking into something else that could be causing the knocking noise?
I fear my front differential is going out on my 2008 Ford Edge Limited AWD. I was driving down my road and I noticed what sounded like metal on metal then the front end started clunking really hard and pulled over right away, had a towing company tow may car to my house and there it sits. doing some digging around my CV axle (aka joints) seem strong and don't move when I try to move them with my hand, and when I put the car into drive and just roll very slowly the car seems like it hangs up on something then the "pressure" is released and rolls for another few feet and repeats the issue. could someone verify the issue? odometer reads 96k.
Whenever I turn from a stop sign and the front wheels lose traction I hear a grinding gears sound. It won't make the sound if I gas it to break traction going straight and AWD seems to be working perfectly. I did hear it one time when I was leaving a stop on a hill covered in a sheet of ice and snow. We have had 4 or 5 days of sub zero temperatures. I don't know if that could make a difference. It doesn't matter if I'm turning left or right and the sound is coming from the front end. Does anyone know what this is? 2007 Ford Edge
