Hey Sandra==The only thing I can think of is if the engine and trans mounts are broken. Have them checked out. Good luck, Joe

It is definitely not a good idea, a thumping noise usually means it has a large bubble, belts are broken or part of the tread is missing. Driving would be unsafe because a blow out of that nature, you could lose control of the car, not able to stop and possibly get into an accident.

Hello, my suggestion would be just opening the hood when the noise goes on. Try to locate where the noise comes from. I have similar problem with my Taurus 2000 SE. It occasionally makes the noise somewhere under the hood. I sent the car to pep boys today. they were not able to locate the noise because it was quiet . so i have to wait until the noise goes up again and open the hood and see.

What is causing thumping sound which increases in frequency with acceleration in rear wheel of Ford Taurus?

The first thing I would check is for a bad tire. The steel belts in the tire can separate and cause it to not run 'true'. A bad tire also may not show a visible symptom - having the tire balanced is one way to identify a problem. Another, no-cost diagnostic check would be to rotate the tires to the front and see if the sound / problem moves too.

Im having a a constant growling grinding noise coming from the rear end of my 1999 ford f 150 truck like something is grinding or out of line.?

If the noise changes pitch under acceleration and deacceleration I would suspect the carrier bearings or pinion bearings are shot. If there is no change under acceleration or deacceleration I would suspect an alxe bearing is shot.
