front left wheel making a grinding noise and the hub is full of black carbon, put it up in jack and turned the wheel and makes the noise. brakes are good but the carbon on the hub shows something is not right.

How much should I expect to pay to either have my transmission rebuilt or replaced. The vehicle only has about 110,000 miles and is four wheel drive.

Hi all,

Gotta interesting problem with my ford explorer. When turning right only, it makes a noise as if its diff is not functioning correctly (front wheels are going at different speeds, left tire is "slipping") however, this is a rear wheel drive and only goes 4wheel when the switch is turned.

I had it checked out at the shop and they said wheel bearings, tie rods, PS, and ball joints are good. I just replaced the front shocks myself yesterday and the problem is still there. In fact I think it is slightly worse now.

Any ideas?

My truck has got 100k, no rebuilds, and at highway speeds, the truck jerks like its trying to run out of gas. The engine doesn't sputter. It feels like the transmission kicks in and out. It started out doing it only on a downhill slope, now, 6 mos. after owning it, it is doing it quite frequently. Please help.

My truck has 100k, no rebuilds, and the tranny will surge drastically in 4th and 5th gears. It started with just going down hills at highway speeds. but has got progressively worse to doing almost every few minutes.

I have a 1999 Explorer Eddie Bauer. With the A/C on auto and airflow out of the dash vents, airflow will slowly move to the defroster whenever I have to accelerate. Once back in normal cruise, the airflow returns to the dash vents. Does the same thing with heat out of the floor vent. Could this be a vaccum leak at the control valve?

My suv will not shift directly into drive. I can shift into reverse fine and I can shift to 2 or 1 but it takes around a minute or two before it shifts then I can shift it back into drive and it will drive fine. It never slips! What could be wrong.

The transmission won't shift right till it warms up. Put it in 2nd and will shift from 1st to 2nd. Put it in drive and it won't come out of 1st. After the car warms up, it seems to shift fine. Put it in drive or O/drive and it will go through the gears. Fluid level is ok. The trans supposedly was rebuilt in 2000. Some say it might be the solenoids, if so, where are they located? Others say get another trans. Any ideas?
