I have a Ford F250 XL- While plowing today I notice that the truck was swaying to the left but didn't think anything of it, thought it was the wet snow. Then while back blading some snow, I noticed that the truck would not back up, almost like I didn't have any 4 wheel drive. I would lift the blade and the truck would back up. When I put the blade down and pushed the snow it would move, but I still felt like the truck had no tracktion on the front drivers side. Almost like the front drivers side

I have a chevy pick-up truck the year 1995 Z71. I put the truck in 4x4 high for the first time this year and did not get a light near the gear lever nor did it go into 4 wheel drive. I check the transfer case with it in neutral and the front shaft would turn freely, then put it in 4 wheel high and it would not turn. I also drove the truck on dry pavement with the 4 wheel drive high gear and 4 wheel drive low gear and had no bucking of the front end when I made turns in a parking lot. Any ideas

2003 Dodge Ram 3500, my front left wheel is making 'scraping' sounds, as if the brake pads are worn down and the tabs are 'scraping' but every once in a while there is a grinding sound. Have taken brakes off and they are good, but there are tiny metal looking shavings inside the wheel. Replaced bearing 4 years ago, but we haul a lot of heavy loads, could they be bad again? Afraid to drive it for fear will really mess something up.
It's possible that the bearings need replacing if haul loads on a regular basis. Take a look at the complete hub assembly, this is not an uncommon issue with Dodge Rams. If you need diagrams and procedure info, here is a cheap factory service manual ... 2004 Dodge Ram 3500 Truck

I just purcahsed a 2003 ford excursion and I heard a whisteling sound yesterday coming from the front left tire while driving. I have noticed a fluid leaking from the left area and I went to stop this morning and heard a grinding sound. ABS light is on and the pedal seems to have resistance with air? Heather/Mommy of 4 lol
Sounds like you are leaking brake fluid. The grinding sound may be from the brake pad not disengaing from the rotor because of low brake fluid pressure. Have this checked immediatley you may loose all brake function!! ... 2003 Ford Excursion
I bought a corvette and within the first 20 miles put on the car a mechanical failure caused my car to veere hard right from the number 1 lane across four lanes of traffic all the way to the right wall. the first time I drove the car on the freeway a clicking sound seeming to originate from the back left wheel area became louder and was joined by a violent vibration, my steering felt as though I was being forced to drive hard right, I tried to compensate by pulling the wheel back left to no ava

I have a 2000 Blazer and when I drive down the road I get a kind of grinding noise from the front end. It makes this noise when I drive straight, but if I turn the wheel ever so slightly to the left the noise goes away. It sounds almost like a rubbing of the tires, but I see no evidence of that going on. It seems to be on the left side mostly, although it could be on the right, I just don't sit there.
It might be the hub bearing assembly on the driver side. If you can have someone drive for you so you can check out the other wheel. ... 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
I recently had the front left wheel bearing replaced cause it seized up.a month later i started hearing the same noise before it siezed..the mechanic said the front end was sloppy and needed to be replaced.so he replaced the tie rods and two differnt arm assemblys.kept hearing the sound so he warrantyd the first wheel bearing,put in another,and it still is making a metal on metal grinding sound.his next opinion is it could be the axle.i am not sure.i am gonna take it to another mechanic and see
Hi, The one thing that causes repeated failure of the front bearings is being over tightened when they install them. A great number of mechanics try and rush and uses air tools to tighten axles nuts down. This usually over t ... Chevrolet Silverado 1500

2009 RX 350 is making a loud grinding sound when I accelerate, then it goes away. The noise appears to come from the front right wheel area. I have AWD. It especially happens while driving up a hill. I've taken it in 2 times and no one can reproduce the sound, which is strange because it make the noise every time I drive the car. There are 46,000 miles on the car and it's occurred since I brought it home (34,000 miles).

I have a 2000 Alero and have front wheel drive. My front left tire will rotate to go forward but as soon as I put the car in reverse the tire will rotate a little bit but than stops and drags with the car. It does not want to go backwards but goes forwards. Also when I press my breaks it starts making a crunching sound and when I do drive it is squeeking.
Sounds like a brake issue to me, like the caliper sticking. I've taken the axle, brakes and hub/wheel assemblies off these many times, pretty simple. If you choose to DIY, I would suggest you buy a Haynes manual....about $20 well worth the investme ... 2000 Oldsmobile Alero

I have a 1999 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 2.7L and I am getting a noise under the left front wheel. When I put my left foot on the floor, to the left of the clutch pedal, it sounds and feels like rocks hitting the floor of the truck. Took it to the shop today and they looked at the stearing and said it was fine. They could hear the noise but not sure where it's coming from. Any ideas?

Shift solenoid im pretty sure the shift solenoid is screwed in my 97 jimmy 4x4, is there any way i can change the solenoid or do i have to cheage the whole transmission? The jimmy i am looking at is a 95 4 wheel drive.. all gears work, no slipping or grinding or any odd sounds of any kind. what is the problem is that you can be driving along and it will just go into neutral. If you shut the truck completely off and restart an put it back in drive it works great again for few minutes an then poo
You can change the solenoids you should be able to drop the tranny pan and they are right there but you might want to unbolt the cross member that holds the tranny up so the pan comes down easier or you chance breaking the solenoids if you try to for ... 1997 GMC Jimmy

My 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo with Quadra Trac II makes a thudding noise when I accelerate. When I first start the car rolling and turn the steering wheel, it is very pronounced. It sounds like it comes from an area below the steering wheel or toward the front left. I've had the brakes and pads replaced, and they seem to work well. The tires are fairly new and I keep them rotated. I put an aftermarket transmission into it last year. It shifts fine, although I must add fluid periodically. I'
