Ok you can have a set of brakes grabbing the wheel causing this. check your brakes and replace any broke or worn parts. This also can come from your wheel hitting something when you drive, maybe a curb or a pot hole real hard which may cause a warped/broken axle or c.v. joint. Thirdly, this can be a bad wheel bearing which has been overheated and has blued over time and has broken or warped. I hope this helps you!

What would make my 2006 Subaru forester, witch we all know is AWD, only have front wheel drive? I noticed it when the tires were spinning on the snow & ice. Only the front tires were spinning.


all wheel drive is not 4 wheel drive
there is a diff in the transmission that supplies power equally to the front and read wheels
when traction is lost on a drive set , the other set will remain stationary and the set without traction will spin as in your description
the same result will occur if you have both driver side wheels in a bog, the passenger wheels will be stationary and the drivers side wheels will spin
on some AWD vehicles and I thing yours has one there is a button that can be engaged that stops the transmission diff from acting like a diff and then the rear wheels will drive
read you owners hand book for driving in bad conditions

When my car is stuck in the snow and doesnt seem to get traction only one wheel spins and not the other and its front wheel drive wouldnt both spin?


No, even a 4x4 will have only 1 wheel that will spin on each axle in this instance. It's called a floating differential. For stock vehicles with non locking differentials like you have, both cannot spin or have full power at the same time. Hard to explain on this, but picture your car making a hard right turn. Both front wheels would be spinning at different speeds because of the turn. The passenger side tire is spinning much slower than the drivers side tire, therefore if both were spinning at the same time, your tires would chirp and skip on the pavement which would eventually ruin your differential. In offroad applications, we WANT the differentials locked and turning at the same time with true 4x4. But in normal everyday vehicles, even standard stock 4x4's, only 1 tire will do the spinning per axle unless it has possitraction or full locked axle. Clear as snow?

Rear end noise when driving 2006 nissan altima


Your car has no "rear end" as people used to call them.
The "rear end" was a set of gears on the old rear wheel drive vehicles that put power to the back wheels.
Since you have a front wheel drive car, the problem you have is much easier to diagnose and repair.
You very likely have a bad rear wheel bearing or two on one side.
A way to tell is to spin the rear wheels one at a time and compare how much noise they make.
The bad one should be noisy.
I cannot think of any easy way to spin the rear wheels one at a time.
Perhaps using a "mechanic's stethoscope" might help.
Raise the car safely up in the air, crawl under the car, and place a long screwdriver tip against the center of the inside of the axle under the car where the wheel bearing are.
If you can't imagine where to put the screwdriver, get someone who knows to help you.
Put the handle in to your ear, and have someone spin the wheel by hand.
One should be noisier than the other.
Be blessed.

I just got stuck twice in two different icy parking spaced with my 2004 Trailblazer. The front tire was on dry road, and the indicator said it was in 4 hi. Why was the rear driver-side tire spinning? Is...


Unless you have a locking differential in the rear, then the drivers rear would just spin, and the passenger side rear would do nothing. Now on the front, the passenger side front is the power wheel. If the passenger side front wasn't spinning either, then you may have an actuator problem. The other problem too look into would be the TCCM (transfer case control module) could be going bad.
