Question about 1997 Ford Taurus
It's making a noise on the drivers side near the wheel. My brakes are not catching in the back but only have back brakes. Gas hand is not working either.
I dont think you should be behind the wheel of anything but a grocery cart...
how can you only have back brakes yet you say your brakes in the back dont catch ???
gas gauge is inop and that has nothing to do with your ability to stop... please tell me you don't reside east of the Mississippi River !!!
I would be willing to bet your back brakes are probably leaking and completely inop. need to be serviced... check your front brakes as well...
as for the gas gauge. a new sending unit is probably what you need

Sounds like a bad vacuum line to the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) or a problem with the IWE solenoid.
Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.
Start by checking the vacuum line at the IWE for vacuum when the truck is in 2WD mode, and the engine is running. If you have low vacuum on one side, trace the vacuum lines back towards the IWE solenoid.

Could either be a bad vacuum line or the TSB for the IWE solenoid.
If you have the truck running in park ( parking brake, chock wheels, necessary safety precautions ) check the vacuum on the front right IWE vacuum line. there are 2 vacuum hoses on there, 1 is the vac, the other is the vent, which routes up into the engine compartment, and is not hooked to anything.
Usually if it is the TSB, both sides will be making the grinding noise, as they are a common IWE solenoid
