When I am braking it sounds like the brakes are grinding and they make a lot of noise. It also feels like the breaks pump when I slow down. I am assuming this is a problem but I want to know what it is and how serious the problem is because I am a college student and money is tight. Thank you.

The temerature gauge on my ford explorer is acting u. For a while, it would randomly (every few days) jump into the red for a minute or two, then go back down. Today, it keeps going in the red whenever the car is idling. when i step on the gas and move, it goes back to normal. Any ideas?

When i press on the gas in drive the car stalls and i have to restat it. when it runs in park its fine. it will run forever and wont stall.we changed the fuel filter, flow meter censor why would my truck continue to stall?

I have changed out fuel pump ,filter . and fuel regular at the fuel rail. when i do get it started it runs smooth then when it's turned it won't start acts like it's not getting fuel again can keeping turning switch on and off and bleeding at fuel rail and eventaly get it started again. acts almot like a old vapor lock or loosing its prime

Ignition will not turn. I have jiggled key, turned steering wheel left and right, turned steering wheel left and held it while trying to turn key. Tried regular key and spare key.

My explorer randomly stalls and feels like it is not getting gas. Happened in the middle of an intersection yesterday. Took it to the shop and was told it was a switch that shuts the gas/car down in case of an accident. Picked the car up and it is now running rough!

the steering has hard spots in it. I took it in to the mechanic 2 and a half months ago and he said the boot or a bushing riped and he put oil in it and it went away for awhile then its back again and i dont know what wrong with it. Do you know what it could be?

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?

have step onto brake pedal and tried to put into gear still unable to do so.

i need to take out the motor for i can replace the timing chain brackets

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.
It feels like it might be a sensor or something, but I am not familiar with Ford transmissions. Please help.

when holding down the accelerator engine idles fine. take foot off and engine quits

I would like to know what would cause all of these things to go out at the same time. I tried replacing the fuse for the speedometer but as soon as I put it in it blew out and had a burning smell.
