SOURCE: Front wheel discs red hot after driving

They're turning hot because you clamped off the rear lines. Now the fronts are being overworked - they're heating up because they're doing 100% of the stopping instead of the usual 70% or so. Replace the line and bleed the system before you destroy your entire braking system.

SOURCE: right rear wheel locking up

okay you had brake work done!!! "THINKING" that was the problem originally right rear wheel locking up! okay,,, so doing brakes has not solved your problem! I would maybe look into rear end bearing??? do you have any load road noise from rear and do you have rear end fluid in differential? question to you was the baking plate ""WET"" looked damp? or moister get at it!??? seal might have leaked all fluid out??? all the above would be good place to start! good luck I hope this info helps you out.Happy new year.

SOURCE: 1998 dodge neon front disc brakes

Does your car have rear disc brakes? If so, it is likely a failure of the emergency brake that is inside the rear disc.

I hav a 1961 fordson super major with white wheels all round tin on the front could this be original


Could be the same colours but I doubt a tractor working on a farm would still have good paintwork. Check the registration document and chassis/engine numbers.

2004 Buick Rainier four wheel is stuck in AWD drive all the time .


All wheel drive is just that-- All wheel drive-- not to be confused with 4 wheel drive . The difference is with AWD there is a 3rd diff in the transmission that allows the front and rear wheels to operate at different road speeds . When 4wd is selected that 3rd diff is locked and so both front and rear wheels drive at the same speed regardless of ups and downs in the road surface . This results in a torque wind up in the drive train and places load on "U" joints --splines --CV joints and gear teeth . The grinding on turning corners will be the CV joints trying not to flex because of the torque wind up . How to prevent this problem=== Do not use 4wd on hard road surfaces === as the tyres cannot slip to relieve the torque Restrict the 4wd use to snow , mud and loose surfaces TO fix the problem unselect 4wd drive and reverse several yards to release the pressure in the drive train and the actuator has a chance to pull the gear out of lock up. If that doesn't work check that the actuator is actually working

Ford explorer 2000 all wheel drive not working


all wheel drive vehicles have to work at both ends all the time unless you have a major failure in the drive train. That is why it is called all wheel drive as opposed to 4 wheel drive. With 4 wheel drive you have the option of rear wheel drive or 4 wheel drive and normally in a high ratio or low ratio gear selection. With some all wheel drive vehicles there is a selector that locks the middle diff and creates a 4 wheel drive option without the high/low gear ratio option. So in practice if the both front wheels are in the bog then there is no all wheel drive as the centre diff is working as it should and placing all the action in the rear wheels which will not be turning as they have traction so the front wheels spin faster.. If you have a centre diff lock option ensure that it is operational.

Trans troubleshooting


If you are driving in 4 wheel drive on hard surface then you have drive line torque lock up as there is no centre diff to allow the front and rear wheels to equalise out the torque . 4 wheel drive is for use when on dirt / snow / ice where the differences between the front and back are allowed to slip the tyres . Jack up a rear wheel and allow the torque to dissipate by rotating a wheel . A point from all 4x4 manufacturers is that you NEVER drive in 4 wheel drive unless you are on dirt or ice/snow conditions. You have probably been getting away with it as any bump that lifts a wheel from the road surface will allow the wheel to slip. Even running the tyre on the white painted line on the road or any wet patch on the road will help ease the torque loading

96 pajero auto no power front right wheel i 4wd trans fluid level ok


wd diff lock only locks the front to rear diffs not the 2 wheels on the same diff. To have both front wheels driving as you require will need limited slip diff in front or locker in front Be hard to steer in tight areas but they are available.

My land rover defender steering wheel starts to shake and wobble at about 80-90km/ph and gets worse. I have had the wheel balance and alinement done but it is still there. What other causes could cause...


This is really annoying, happens with most Defenders, but is easily fixed. It is the steering damper. They are never strong enough. Best solution is to fit an additional damper onto the track rod. Remove the track rod protection bracket from under the rear of the front diff, fit a heavier track rod and mount an additional damper on the track rod. The other end of the damper is mounted on the rear of the diff (where the protection bracket was removed). Land Rover specialists such as MR Automotive in Brisbane will send you the required parts. You won't regret doing it!

Rear wheels on 2000 super duty f250 skid in reverse only


I hate to say it but it sounds like you have a severe problem in the rear end. Here are a couple of things i would do. First pull off your tires and wheels. Of course you need to put the truck on jack stands and block the wheels for safety! Disconnect your rear drive line so you know nothing from front diff or trans could be affecting it. Next spin the brake rotors by hand and inspect them for severe damage. Go forwards and backwards. Also listen in your rear end for grinding or clunking noises and also excessive play front foward to reverse. And last drain your oil and put your finger up inside the housing as far as you can and feel for large pieces that should not be there. This should give you a good idea if it is in your braking sytem your rear end or wether you need to start looking at front diff. or the trans. If all is good on rear end do the same thing for front diff and inspect it as well. Make sure you pull front driveline off!
