Getting off onto the highway when I heard something pop and fly underneath my car. Ever since then my car leans on the driver side every now and then I can smell burning, it takes a long time for my car to stop when pressing the break. The tire on my drivers side is super Hot. And while I'm driving it sounds like the tire is flat but it's not and it hesitates when I press on the gas on the passenger side of my car feels nice and smooth rotating my drivers side every crease and bump I hit I feel like a earthquake hit. And feels like my tire rod is rotating literally on the underside of my car I feel it. Help
Ford dealership said the front brake pads have apprximately 5mm left on them, but that the rotors are warped (said it appears pads were replaced, but not rotors... causing rotors to develop a lip and wear unevenly, rendering them unsalvageable). Problem causing pulsation when braking. Wheel also shimmies.
since ive had my focus wagon there was a big problem with the wiring. Finally after not getting anywhere for yrs. and with b.a.r. , we changed wiring connection to the battery but still loosens after some time with my 2002.
This is the case with my car. Also the bearings went on the rear drums causing a very loud "airplane engine" sound in the back. Since Ford decided to weld the bearings to the drum I had to spring for a new drum which cost more then if I just needed the bearings.
Time for a front end brake job this weekend.....
