my ford f150 4x4 is sluggish and making a sound like driving over rumble strips when i start moving from a stop or if it has geared down. It also sounds like something is rubbing or something is hung up under the back end of truck. A grinding rough sound. But once i get moving from the low gear speed it stops ???
