Question about Ford Escort

2 Answers

Clunking noise coming from rear brakes on a 99 Ford Escort, can anyone one help? The car has been in the shop on a weekly basis since May 2009...I am writing on June 20, 2009. All brake components front and back have been replaced. The mechanic is shaking his head and I am banging my head up against the wall...It seems no one can fix this problem. I also suggested, 3 times to this mechanic, to drain the brake fluid, which is the color of windshield washer, to which he doesn't think that is the problem. I do! Brake fluid should NOT BE a blue color! Suggestions please. Thanks

if you replaced all the brake parts I would check your hub bearings and cv axels if the noise is coming from front if the noise is in the rear check your e brake shoes located inside of the rear brake rotors if u have disc rear brakes or your rear brake bearings .. hope this helps

Brake & Wheel issue


Thats quite a list.
The brake noise could be rust on the rotors, but you should check all 4 wheels. The pedal going to the floor is probably a faulty master cylinder.
The clicking noise around the shifter is more or less normal, its the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
You would probably need to have a tire shop check the rear suspension for that noises.

CLUNKING NOISE COMING FROM REAR AXLE PASSANGER SIDE SEAL LEAKING GROOVE WORN IN AXLE COULD THAT CAUSE THE CLUNKING NOISE 01 FORD F-150


you have a seal leak causing the differential oil to get onto the rear brakes shoes.what is happening is the brakes grab the drum and shift until they can`t move(turn)any more causing the clunking noise.the groove in the axle if it is bad enough then it will need a axle sleeve installed which gives the axle were the groove is a smooth surface,it is a thin metal sleeve the diameter of the axle that is installed on the axle.

Loud squeaky noise from front tires when turning and somtimes whe


Hi my name is Tom and I can help you.

Driving with your emergency brake on is only going to affect your rear brakes. There is a cable running from the emergency brake lever to your rear brakes.

You did not say how long you drove with the emergency brake on, but even a short distance and you forced the front brakes to do the work of stopping the car. This causes overuse which translates to heat. When the brakes over heat they "fade" and do not stop the car effectively.

In addition the heavy load of doing all the stopping causes the brakes not to realign. Therefore, when you go around corners the brakes pads will rub against the rotors.

I would suggest you get the brakes looked at or look at them yourself. I can help you do the job but I would need to talk to you directly. Let me know what I can do to help.

Noise from rear suspension on 2003 Honda Odyssey.


a clunking clanging noise sounds very much like your stabilizer bar end links and bushings. you have a thin rear "sway" bar on the rear of your odyssey. this can cause a whole lot of noise. grab each side and pull/push. if it feals loose, replace the end links and bushings.

1998 fORD ESCORT WITH A CLUNKING IN THE LF OVER BUMPS


Most definately some bushing. Just check all of them, make sure all the bolts are tight. Jack the car up and get underneath it and start wiggling the suspension. Grab the wheel and shake it. Try to find the corner or side of the vehicle that the sound comes from.
