Having problems with your 2001 Ford Focus ?

Squealing noise whilst driving

\015 I have a 1999 Ford ka - it has had brake pads and discs replaced because I was getting a slight squealing noise. Now when I am driving the car squeals intermittently, sometimes getting louder and louder, but when I press down hard on the brakes appears to go away. Can't see a pattern which triggers squealing noise. Not too sure if it is still a problem with the brakes or if something else has gone wrong.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Van stalled while I was driving. I was able to restart it after a few minutes and drive a short distance before it stalled again. I had it in the shop for a squealing noise and the mechanic replaced power steering pump, crankshaft damper or pulley, serpentine belt tensioner, and a power steering pump seal kit belt and tensioner is also on my bill.

I have a 1997 88 Oldsmobile. Just recently it has started making a squealing noise that seems to be coming from the front tires. The noise only happens when I am going straight or turning left, the noise stops whenever I turn right. It's not particularly loud unless I turn left hard or am breaking. I am wondering if it may be out of alignment, as I drive over rough rail road tracks almost every day. Has anyone else had this problem?
