Yo D,

Here are some possible perpetrators from Ford in a 96;

  • Noise in Steering Column Clunk
  • Steering column intermediate shaft coupling bottoming.
  • ALIGN or ADJUST as required.
 
  • Loose steering column intermediate shaft coupling to steering column bolt.
  • TIGHTEN to specification.
 
  • Improperly adjusted steering gear.

 

  • Power Steering or Accessory Belt Squealing
  • Check belt for proper tension or glazing. For C-II pump, the pump would be damaged due to excessive fluid temperatures of 149°C (300°F) or higher. Dark fluid with a burnt smell will confirm.
  • TIGHTEN or REPLACE belt as required. REFER to Section 03-05.For CII pump, REPLACE pump and PURGE old fluid. ADD Motorcraft MERCON ® ATF XT-2-QDX or MERCON® equivalent.
  • Pump Noisy
  • Low fluid level and possible leakage.
  • REFILL to specified level. PURGE air from system. CHECK for leaks. REPAIR as required. If noise persists, REPLACE pump.
  • Swish Type Noise
  • Fluid flow into the bypass valve of the pump valve housing with fluid temperature below 55°C (130°F).
  • Normal noise.
  • Whine Type Noise
  • Aerated fluid or cam contour damaged.
  • Worn or damaged valve O-ring seal.
  • PURGE system of air. If condition not resolved, REPLACE pump. GO to Pinpoint Test D .

Yo,

Ok, check wheel bearing.

  • Buzzing Noise in Front Axle in Two-Wheel Drive, Shortly After Four-Wheel Drive Usage
  • Right or left side hublock.
  • REPLACE hublocks as necessary.
