Have been having issues with my Ba xr6t mkii manual , for a while a whirring sound would come and go slightly between 60-80 km/h (I put it down to just about time for a centre bearing change over. then after about 3-4 weeks of driving to and from work I gave it a little throttle from a standing start and it made a very bad vibration through the car , pedals and gearstick. after that , any hard acceleration of more than 1/2 throttle would make bad vibration and the whirring sound had now become a Humming sound heard and felt above 50km/h. and an all around feeling of "something isn't right" was lingering ....a couple of days after this (about 60-80 kms later) I was driving with barely any acceleration at 60km/h and the whole car broke into vibration with a metal on metal sound present, the car also seemed to now have some resistance under acceleration as if the handbrake had been left on.... Babied the car home about 30km away and every time I would hit an incline and had to give anything more than a touch of acceleration the car would vibrate/drone and hum violently . on the very last hill to my house I honestly didn't think I was going to make it. the last 2kms. when I got home I took it apart and on this video is what I found...... If anyone can point me in the direction of what it might be? and the costs involved / possibly even someone in the northern perth area that can fix it, with quality workmanship? Until I get it fixed im leaving it parked up . im hoping it'll get me to the repair shop without the cost of a tow, though I've been told too much vibration being sent back through the gearbox etc could be very bad? car runs 500+rwhp on 15psi
Hi guys I have this grinding / clunking sound that happens when I'm coming to a complete stop such as traffic lights / driveways / 3 pt turns.. It ONLY grinds & vibrates right as I'm about to stop,, so the last half a metre or so. (It's even louder in reverse) As soon as I accelerate It goes away & I don't hear it again until I come to another stop. If I brake quite hard or fast, it doesn't make the noise... -no warning lights are displayed - I ran a faults check with TORQUE + OBD2 scanner but only returned a "P1000 powertrain error".... Which apparently is normal for some fords????? My apologies if this has been answered, I'm a newb. I read all similar Q's on this forum but I got 48 diff theories which confused me more than I already am. I will post a link to the vid I just recorded, so u can hear for yourself. Or YouTube 'BF Xr6t grinding noise' Please help falcon dudes!
OK, I know similar questions have been asked but couldnt find any that were exactly the same as mine. I have a 2003 xr6t and recently the left side rear end has been making a clunking\knocking noise when going over bumps and rough roads. It doesnt seem to happen when both wheels hit a bump but rather when it is the left rear wheel by itself. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar thing happen and if there were any solutions to this problem. I have had the 3 diff mounts replaced less then 5000k ago. I have had a look at the bushes and the only ones I can see that look suspect is the top shock bushes. Should these fit flush in the center with the bolt that holds them in becuase there seems to be a 3mm gap between the bolt and the bush. Anything would be helpful. Also one more sympton is that sometimes when taking off from a standstill the rear end will shutter as if somthing is holding it back. Thanks
I just posted this in the Technical Forum but perhaps it's better suited here, seeing as I don't own a turbo. I recently bought a 2010 5-speed Auto XR6. It always makes a "clunk" sound when changing from Park to Reverse or Reverse to Drive or Drive to Park and so on. The dealer told me this is normal. After doing some reading it seems common for the 5-speed Auto. However, is it damaging my transmission? Also, ocassionally when I drive I notice that when it changes gear it makes a clunking sound, and it sounds as though it's coming from under the bonnet. This only started to happen over the last 2 weeks. It has happend over a dozen times now. And it happens in both Performance Mode and Automatic Mode. Is this normal? And, more importantly,is this damaging my transmission? I'm getting worried that my gearbox (if it is actually the transmission) is going to die on me much sooner than it ought to. Is this likely? I'd appreciate any feedback on my questions. I spent $24,000 on this car; I expect everything to be in tip-top order. Thanks guys!
