Lately, hearing a squeak in front driver's side tire every time the vehicle is moving. Every time the wheel gets to a certain rotation tire it seems to make a noise and it's starting to increase in notability. Have removed the tire but did not see any possible leaks. Also, tried shaking tire to see if it was the tire rod, but it seemed to be solid. It does not seem to be the brakes since the noise does not occur/intensifies when braking. I think it might be the hub bearings but still would like to hear from others.

my 1993 toyota truck 4x4 is not getting any gas after the key goes to the on position. it will shoot fuel out of the main fuel line while the engine is turning over, but after it starts it will barely seep out of it. when i get it started it will run fine at the high idle but when it falls to normal idle it starves itself out . I have put new pump filter , mass air sensor and ignition switch and nothing has helped it any ideas will help alot thanks
just recently cut off the cavt. converter and replaced it with a straight pipe and also replaced the radiator. The car continues to do the same thing.... RPM goes up real high before shifting and once it hits about 60mph it runs okay....The shop i took it to could not find the problem. I was going to replace the transmission filter and gaskets, spark plugs, and coil packs but unsure if i should if that is not the problem. has this happened to someone else.
Car runs great except at low speeds it bucks or hesitates as it changes gears. Transmission was tested and inspected as good but I was wondering about the torque converter. Could this be the problem, dash lights never come on to indicate a problem so we can't put it on the computer. If this could be the problem what does it cost to repair
I also checked the fuse to the wiper motor and it is fine. The wiper moved a twich when turned on and now it does nothing. Is it the motor? Any other suggestions if I missed something to try?
Thanks, stirringro
after replacing brakes and bleeding car does fine,more I drive there's a drag on car,have to push accelerator harder to have it keep up the speed.And the engine is getting hot.Not the temp gauge,just excessive heat coming from motor into car.
Also in AM car won't go when temp gauge in close to bottom of gauge,once it starts warming up makes it easier to go in gear(drive)this only started when what I thought was brakes locking on me,that was reason for replacement.When start in morn after temp warm up runs good,then slowly downhill from there,to the point afraid I'm pushing it to go that I'm going to break something if not get stuck somewhere.
Please help!! I think it's a simple problem.Could the proportioning valve make the brakes do this??
Thanks .one heck of a headache
twice it died with a couple of "jumps", like gear shift jump while running slow. No engine lights or warning lights or messages show. Car idles and stops approx 1/10 times.
The car starts and runs fine, the light doesnt blink, it just stays on.
Struts not leaking & ride is good but bearing plates started squeaking real bad 2 months ago and I sprayed them with WD40 which didn't seem to help. Now that I've saved enough to have them replaced they have been quiet for the past week. Should I replace the strut assemblies or just keep lubricating the plates? 88,000 miles on vehicle, don't tow with it, and normal load is light to moderate.
