Question about 1981 Ford F 150

Open Question

I Have a 1981 f150 4x4 with a 302, yesterday as I was driving down the road my truck pulled hard to the right. I pulled over to check it and the tire was at a weird angle so I lifted it up and my whole wheel/hub assembly came off. Im thinking the manule lock out blew apart along with the outer bearing. Would that allow the hub assembly to just fall off the truck, if not what should I look for.

SOURCE: Front wheel bearings

It does have the complete hub assembly's on it, but they are not that difficult to change. And that does sound like the problem you are having.

First check if there is a screw in the outer side of the axle on trucks there is usually an adjusting screw to tighten the bearing. be carefull not to over tighten

SOURCE: when driving down the road the truck pulls to the

you have a worn out or loose steering component. easiest way to find it is to jack up the front of the truck so both tires are off the ground. grab the tire and "turn" it left to right, to simulate the actual steering. you will probably feel some kind of movement. like a loose feeling...its difficult to put into writing. but if you watch the steering parts while a buddy trys to shake the tire around a bit, then you should be able to spot what is loose or worn. keep an eye on the tierod ends, and the ball joints especially. but it could even be a bushing on the control arm. once you find whats loose, you either tighten it up, or replace the parts as needed. you may have to try shaking both tires (not at the same time), depending on what side of your truck the bad part is on. also check to see if the tire moves when you try to move it front to back. that would indicate bad wheel bearings.

I just got the truck and it has a few problems that I need to fix sp here that are When I drive down the road it pulls to the left tires are ok front end alinment ok also no wipers


SOME THINGS i WOULD CHECK...
1st. check tire inflation. make sure they all are the same. under inflated tire can cause a pull.
2nd. jack up front end, placing hands on the tires in the 3oclock and 9 oclock positions see if you can wiggle the tire in and out. If there is any play, you will feel it right away. This is classic tie rod end wear and is the cause of your pull. if you replace it yourself, you will need an alignment after.
good luck

Grinding noises and pulls to the right while driving


Sounds like brakes or wheel bearing, have your brakes check out they'll also be able to check your bearing at the same time.

1995 nissan maxima fishtails just bought it used is this common?


Fishtailing on a front wheel drive car is not really a common problem, no matter what make it is. The Maxima is generally a good handling car and 1995 was the first year that they used the VG30DE engine which had plenty of power. These cars performed like they had V-8's. With a front wheel drive car, when they accelerate, the drive line is pulling the car. Where ever the front goes the back follows, when you put your foot into it. NOW, if you have a tire problem where they are no longer able to hold the road, the rear will slide all over the place. If this is the case, replace the tires. 1st check the tire pressures! If your car fishtailed on a slippery road where it had just started to rain and oil commonly floats to the surface of the road in the first few minutes that it rains, you need to drive with caution. I drive an old 1981 Mercedes 300 TD wagon. When it is wet, prior to my replacing my tires, the car would slip and slide all over the place in the rain. I recently replaced my tires with a new 80,000 mile tire Cooper came out with and the ride and handling are awesome. The car sticks whether it is wet or dry and the road noise has been cut in half. I had never realized how bad my tires were until I replaced them. My tires still had a legal amount of tread but had start to crack from age. SO, to sum it up: the car in general, is an excellent car with a reasonably reliable record and few weak areas. You have made a good choice for a car.

It sounds like a possible bad front wheel bearing they will make like a humming or growling noise.The pull could be air pressure a little lower in the right front tire than the left front check the air in all tires and if pull is still there take the left front put it on the right front and put the right front tire on the left front.Sometimes tires get what they call radial pull and that will fix it or make it go the other way if it goes the other way either get new tires or put the back tires on the front of the vehicle and put the front tires on the back.

ESP light on 2005 Golf


ESP is the Electronic Stability Programme - it only comes on if the engine computer needs to make adjustments for poor driving or road surface conditions. If it is on all the time (and you are not driving down a country road) then you should get it checked out.

P.S. Sometimes low tire inflation will cause the problem. Winter tires depending on the tread will also cause this error.

Take to a local parts store and have the engine code read. Could be a multitude or combination of different problems.

Just took my 74 450sl out of storage..the power steering pump was low on fluid..filled it and I noticed that the car is pulling to the right...to drive straight down the road the steering wheel is cocked...


check ur tire pressures-when cars sit for very long periods of time,they also develop flat spots in tires if not driven-check suspension and tires first,doubt "air lock" is causing this
