1995 Ford Explorer V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 280000 miles
Alright, here's the low down: Anytime I accelerate past 35 mph as soon as I let *off* the gas (to either stop or slow down) a noise from the car engine area begins to make a "revving or whistling" type of high pitch noise. It immediately stops if I come to a complete stop or if I provide even the slightest amount of gas. I can also manipulate the noise (making it stop) if while braking I keep just a hint of pressure on the gas pedal. The RPM's slow down in time w/ the speedometer when the pressure is removed from the gas pedal. Also, the car does not in any way feel as if it is trying to "fight" my deceleration and the engine (as a whole) does not sound like it does when you begin accelerating. I have been unable to recreate the noise by sitting in neutral and revving the engine to simulate the same strain the engine may experience when going above 35 mph. It seems the problem is isolated to only occurring when the car is actually in motion. Lastly, my RPM's are all as they should and the engine is not sounding or acting as if the transmission is having any difficulties shifting to any speed. Any ideas would be extremely welcome. - Rob
