Customer Question
2002 Ford E450 econoline chassis...
2002 Ford E450 econoline chassis for fleetwood tioga 31W motorhome makes a ringing sound under the cab when going between 55-60 MPH. Above and below this range it does not occur. Does not seem to be RPM specific. Tires are new. VIN 1fdxe45sx2hb64230. I have replaced the ujoints and carrier bearing. Best description I can give of the sound would be like dragging an exhaust pipe on rough concrete

Hello my name is ***** ***** best way is to jack up the rear of the vehicle and place on jack stands and run the driveline and listen with a stethoscope. Have you tried this?

I have not tried this as the sound appears to be speed related and not rpm. Are there specific points you think I should listen at?
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 11 months ago

I​ would just placed the stethoscope on the rear diff, the carrier bearings on the driveshaft to start. Also if the noise can'r be duplicated then you would mostly be looking for a wind related noise, check all parts of the body for loose attaching points, check the roof for loose panels or vents, ac ect.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
