This is usually caused from air in the power steering system. On more then one occasion i've experienced this after doing a brake job or an alignment. Because you turn the wheels with out the engine running you move power steering fluid throughout the system aerating it. The fix is to simply turn the wheel lock to lock repeatedly with the engine on and parked. This will "bleed" the system. Oddly Explorers are the only vehicle i've ever seen this happen to. Unfortunately it looks like you replaced the wheel bearing needlessly.

2004 ford explore just cut off after ... Cranking a this morning going 2mins down the road it just cut off ... What is this problem


Sorry but , Ford is noted for not recalling the Pinto exploding gas tanks. Internal memo said, "Cheaper to let people burn in 15 MPH crash than accept responsibility" Also look at Explorer exploding tires.
On my Ford, the steering arm snapped off. Zero steering control!! Lucky I was 100 feet from home not on freeway

Steering noise and shutter probems on 1995 ford explorer ltd


Have you bled all air out of the system after refit?
Check the oil level and for any signs of air in the oil.

To bleed the system, you must turn the wheel from lock to lock, whilst topping up the power steering fluid. After a dozen turns or so, stop the engine, and allow the air in the fluid to rise out over several minutes.
Restart the engine, and work from lock to lock another dozen times or so, checking the oil level again.

After doing all that, is there still air in your system?
Is the power steering drive belt slack?

If everything is normal and operating properly, then you may have an issue with your steering rack.

My 1999 ford explorer makes a squealing noise when I start it up until I push on gas or proceed to move...it will also occassionally make this squealing noise as I am driving..any Idea what this could


The squealing noise you describe is usually from a slipping belt. The belt tensioner may be faulty and not keeping the belt tight enough, the alternator is charging and putting a load on the belt when you first start the engine. If the belt squeaked constantly I would say the belt is glazed.

Transmission not shifting until 50 mph when accelerating passing gear makes trans shutter


You need to have the transmission serviced. This is most likely a clogged Trans filter or you are low on trans fluid.

Engine knocking/vibration


A few different things could be causing this, most are internal engine components. First off, take your tires and have them balanced to make sure you didn't accidently fling off a tire weight when you hit a pothole. Next, if that is not it, either you have a blown head gasket, cracked rings, or bad rod/main bearings.
