I have a 1994 Ford Explorer that started to sound
kind of likeeping a helicopter yesterday at speeds

Your radiator fan clutch may have seized up.

I don't think it is the radiator fan clutch. Unless when that seizes up the whole car shakes. It starts at 50 MPH gets worse at 55 MPH and the kind of stops at 60 MPH
