    I have an 04 ranger starting speed in foward of reverse I have a loud squeeking noise..I thought it was my brakes but they checked out fine..I gets louder almost like a clicking sound when I accelerate from start or slow..Sounds like its comming from the drive shaft? all looks tight under neath.. I heard another ranger doing the same thing the other day..Is this a commen problem? Thanks, RR

    Driveshaft sqeak

    If it is a steady squeal, then I don't think it would be the driveshaft.

    A dry u-joint often makes a squeak on each revolution of the driveshaft. As speed picks up, the squeaks get closer together and eventually blend into a steady howl.

    thanks,,,but the squeel acually stops when speed picks up.its squeels faster then stops at low almost stopped speeds,,faster than the tire rotation thats why I was thinking driveshaft or u joint
