Hello, I just bought a E250 with a friend of mine to do some light traveling in. It’s a 1995 e250.
When I bought the van everything seemed good, but after a couple days it started to make a rumble strip sound between 45-55 mph. It alternates and increases with speed (rumble-silent-rumble-silent-etc). After 55 mph it seems to be constant but so low that it really isn’t really noticeable. When I let off the gas it does the same thing as the car slows down. Any idea what it could be? Does it need to be addressed ASAP?
Also, my friend drove with the e-brake on for about 15 min at 65mph… and the brakes thump as you press on them and slow down. Are those just the brake pads or could it be the drum that needs to be replaced? Or something deeper?
Thank you for the help in advance!
