When i take a left turn i hear a squeak and it starts to grind


You probably have one or more bad ball joints in the steering on the front end. This truck should have grease zerks on the ball joints. If you greese everything and it gets quite, then it is the ball joints. However a WARNING. If the ball joint was squeaking and grinding, it should be replaced. Have a good mechanic check it out. Its hard to do yourself without the proper tools and knowledge. This is possibly a dangerous situation and something could come loose on the front end and you lose the ability to control the vehicle.
There are other possibilities, like snow and ice build up between the tires. Or bad wheal bearings. Jack the front end up, and rotate the wheels. They should spin freely with no noise. Next grap the wheel top and bottom. There should be no play.

If this is a four wheel drive vehicle it is a possiblility you have bad CV joints or universal joints which transfer power to the wheels. To check this, engage the 4x4, set the parking brake, and jack up the front end. Grap the wheel and try to rotate it, it should not move at all. . If the CV joints are out, you should be able to hear noise when you do this.

I have a noise in the left front wheel on a 4x4 F-150. Replace the hub, but noise has returned intermeintly.


Sounds like wheel bearing, an easy way to check it out is to just jack up that corner enough to get the weight off the wheel then with one hand on the top and one on the bottom of your tire check for any play. If there is play your bearing is bad. the play will most likely be very very little (less than 1/16 of an inch) but there should none whatsoever. if the grinding noise happens when turning left, check the right side or grinding when turning right check the left side. sometimes the bearing has a bad seal or wasn't properly lubed when being made.

Thumping, grinding noise comes from right front side


most likely a front hub [wheel bearing ]going bad but jack up front side that is causing problem and try to move tire in and out with hands at top and bottom of tire and listen and feel for noise or excess movement it to much movement remove tire an check the upper and lower ball joints as well as the shock/strut but check brakes grinding can also mean pads are metal to rotor but usually grinding and thumping is related to a bad hub

Front driverside tire hesitates when the vehicle starts moving


Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. These cars are known for that. It could also be a bad CV joint [axle] , but it won't usually make your wheel hop. Jack car up and try to move wheel top to bottom. There should be no play at all. Try spinning the wheel while it is off the ground, if it's a bearing, you will hear a grinding noise. If it's a bad CV joint, you will hear a clicking. Let me know if this was helpful to you, and until you get it looked at, I wouldn't drive it, as the wheel can fall right off if it's a bearing. Good luck

When im driving the car moans and moans even louder when i turn the wheel, the faster i drive the louder the sound gets


You should check the power steering fluid level first. However, you said the noise gets louder if you turn the wheel. That sounds like a front hub bearing. To check the front and rear hubs, raise the tires off the ground one at a time. Try to move the tire in & out at the top, sides and bottom. spin the tire if you can. Only a tiny amount of play, if any, is acceptable. If you hear or feel rumbling or roughness when turning the tire, the hub is bad and must be replaced

Hub noise


You have a bad wheel bearing, when you turn away from the bad bearing the wheel bearing is un-loaded and quiets down.
