Subject: Whistling Explorer

I just recently bought a used '96 Explorer. While driving at highway speeds,
usually in the 2000RPM range, a whistling sound is coming from around the area
under the gas pedal. Above or below that speed range, the sound disappears. We
took it back to the dealer for service and they agreed to fix it. They said
they put on 'frame ears' to ascertain the source of the problem and replaced
the valve body and gasket. They say the noise is gone but that there is some
noise from the intake that is normal. They checked the engine for vacuum leaks
and didn't find any. They said that all Explorers make this sound. Is this
true? Does every Explorer owner put up with this annoying whistle?

I believe it is a federal vehicle standard (like seatbelts, door beams,
emissions, etc.) that dictates the current situation where your foglights
cannot be used with high beams on. It has been discussed on usenet a
couple of times. Try a dejanews search. There were several suggested wiring
changes discussed awhile back, too. Check out dejanews.

Nope, mine doesn't make any whistling noises. 91 model with 120K on it and still
quiet and tight.
