Are you greasing them (packing) the bearings ?.... also don't over tighten the nut.... put the nut on..... spin the wheel and tighten the nut just enough to allow it to spin

Where is the ABS sensor on a 2001 chevy silverado 4x4 truck/

this sensor is is built into the hub bearing, the bearing must be replaced to replace the abs sensor, 99% of sensor fault is due to worn bearing. the sensor is on the hub follow the abs wire to sensor from wheel area, some model sensor is bolted into bearing and can be replaced with bearing, make sure there is no play in wheel or new sensor will go bad, heres a picture of the complete hub and also of just the sensor. note there are four sensors one on each wheel, a scan tool will tell you which one is bad.good day.johnjohn2_116.jpgjohnjohn2_117.jpg

I have a 2001 kia rio, we have replaced front wheel bearing a combined total of 12 times and it only has 81000 miles on it. one are the other goes out about every 10000 miles.can we replace the older axle...

well not sure what you mean by one piece assm. becuase all front wheel drive cars require one shaft and two c/v joints on either end.

but i think i have a hunch of the problem and them most common cause for failure after a replacement is over tighting of the axle nut. what happens is it crush's the bearing and cut's it's life.

Our 2001 Dodge Caravan seems to be leaking oil around drive shaft

Yes it's a bad seal and most likely the side bearing to the trans axle is bad too. Once the bearing has play, it vibrates and causes the oil to leak though the seal. Note: if one side went bad the other side is soon to follow since they have the same amount of miles on them. Might as well change both side. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep an eye on the transmission fluid level, don't want to burn out the transmission.

all 1998 and newer 4x4 blazers and s10s have front wheel bearing problems. If they are bad and you do not replace they can com apart then the only thing holding the wheel on is the axle shaft.
