noise when exelerating at 50+

When I exelerate at 50+ flooring it or near flooring it there is a sound like a loose pully or bearing is shot or something, I was wondering if anyone has had similiar problems and how they fixed it. I have 62,000 on it and its a 99'. Thanks

In my wifes 1999 XLT SuperCab when she hits about 45 mph (iirc). It has the same noise, but once you get higher (beyond 65) I think it goes away.

I have that problem too. It sounds like marbles in a can. I think it's coming from my clutch. I wish i could figure it out. When it's cold it's fine. When it warms up it does it whenever I accelerate. I think it's a pilot bearing or throw out bearing I hope.

I get a loud whirring sound from my front end once I start going over 40... I think it's some busted radials in my tires though. I know it's not the motor because when I shift out of gear at 40+, it doesn't go away until I start to slow down.

I am getting the same sound you described as well. I have a 99 ranger and it's really noticeable going up hills, when the motor begins to really work. I would like to figure this out too. Thanks.

That there sounds like a good case of pinging, you might try running some Seafoam through it to see if it does any good. Another option would be to try running midgrade to see if it diminishes.

marbles in a can = clutch chatter, doesn't sound like that is what you are experiencing, but clutch chatter sucks, cost me 1400 bucks to fix that problem on my svt!

And yea, check to see if it happens when u rev, not just when you are

accelerating.

Is it a 4.0? Could be primary timing chain rattle? Or does it not do it when accelerating? I don't have a 4.0 and I can't remember how it all works.

It's a patented concoction: suck it into your engine and your CEL light magically comes on...

Seriously, it's a liquid that helps remove carbon deposits. You put your brake vacuum booster hose in the can and run you engine. You get a lot of smoke and you have to change your oil afterwards -- but you end up with a much cleaner engine allegedly and the folks who have used it swear by it. I've not used it, but I might at some point.
