When I start driving my Ford Expedition 2013,I hear a one time slight rubbing/ grinding noise seemingly from the rear when the vehicle reaches 20 km/h. Its not a continuous noise.Please help. Mechanics refuse to declare it as wheel bearing noise. One of the mechanics advised me to get ATF examined and replaced if necessary. I did so. It was a mess.My transmission mechanic just gave it it a try by changing the ATF and transmission filter.He says my transmission is in superb condition. I just had it computer tested.All is fine.The rubbing click is too low to be heard by some of the mechanics during a test drive.One more thing. It happened every time when I turned my engine off and started it again.I never hear it during the rest of the drive above 20 km/h.Gear shift is smooth. Thanks to those who responded. I am living in Saudi Arabia.

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! They are probably refusing to call it a wheel bearing because a wheel bearing would be a constant noise. While I'm sure something is going on, I'm afraid your question doesn't have enough detail in it for us to attempt to answer it. If you could edit the question with more detail about what is going on, we might be able to help. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Aug 13 '20 at 10:48

If your car makes noise when accelerating, it can be a problem like a worn-out clutch disc or wheel bearing. Does this happen when you are turning or is there a wheezing sound also?

  • I will be mindful while turning to detect the sound now. – Shehzada Raza Aug 13 '20 at 20:51
  • great! just make sure to drive safe and slowly for a bit and be attentive for any new sounds – wilkvolk Aug 14 '20 at 9:53
