Question about Ford Escape
I have a new 2013 escape front wheel drive. When the posittraction is on and I accellerate, the car goes right or left and is uncontrollable. If I switch it off it doesnt do this. What is wrong here?
Posi track means both front wheels spin at the same time and speed. Dangerous if it's icy or slushy out. You shouldn't use it when it's slippery out. When you switch it off, the power to the wheels is usually in one wheel, but the second wheel helps out. Gives you better traction control. I'm not sure why they would put that feature on a small vehicle. hope that explains it better for you.

SOURCE: need to replace the front
You need to remove the tire, brake caliper and rotor. Remove the axle nut and hub bolts. Take the hub (bearing is pressed in it) to a machine shop to have new bearings pressed in.
A mechanic will usually charge around 300 dollars per bearing (cost included).

sounds like the wheel speed senser is not working properly when you are in all wheel drive the computer uses the brakes to keep the all wheels rolling at the same speed for good traction if one speed senser is reading that right side front wheel was going faster than the others it would activated that brake via the antilock brake system

humming noise is bearing.creaking is either tie rod or other ball joint.tie rods on these go out all the time.bearing also

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub
