My Ford Explorer Roars After 15 Miles Of Driving. Why?

Someone brought in their Ford Explorer with an interesting problem. After about 15 miles of driving they would hear a “roar” and their “wrench” light would come on. They would stop at their destination, restart the car and everything would be fine, however, the process would then repeat itself after another 15 miles. What could it be?

The wrench sensor on a Ford Explorer is a signal for both drivetrain and transmission problems – so it could be either. Fortunately, the issue ended up being a solenoid sensor, which was a relatively easy and inexpensive problem to fix.

If your car is “roaring,” or if you have any of your dashboard lights on (other than the turn signal!), make sure to come in and see us to have it checked out.
