Very common. The most likely cause of your problem is badly corroded and sticking Ride-Height Sensors on the front wheel area of your vehicle. Ford/Lincoln is REAL proud of those things too...about $185 per copy...there are two of them. They are not hard to change (about 1/2 hour labor or less). They are not interchangeable from side-to-side, so you would have to buy both of them or just hope you get the right one the first time if you try to fix this without first checking the data in the Suspension Module. (Also Known as the Vehicle Dynamics Module or "VDM") There is a good chance that you only need one of them, although I have had to change both on several vehicles. To save you from wasting some big money and possibly, a lot of frustration, it would be worth the investment to have the thing scanned and diagnosed by a qualified technician before going out and buying any parts. It could also be that the air-springs themselves or the airspring solenoids are leaking...again, scanning the system first will aid you a bunch in getting this resolved.

The stability control system is typically triggered by the abs system/connector sensor on your wheel hub bearing. If you haven't replaced your hub bearings on the front you may have one going bad. Cheap fix for a diy.

2006 malibu ss traction light on and tranny shifting hard reset computer shifts fine


The error could be in transmission abs airbags or engine among others. As many modules these days is staggering. Suggest take it to dealer. Not many mechanic shops have the ability to check codes or repair suspension , airbag or other manufacturer specific design ed systems. And you will get much more knowledgeable mechanic. Could be as simple as wheel bearing loose, most prelevent cause, but without codes from computer making lights come on, were dead in water. Transmission in limp home mode makes me lead to guess, ya just a guess, to say you are missing a speed sensor. Signal. Now car will still start without crank sensor, tourque converter input speed sensor, trans output speed or any of the four abs wheel speed. Like I said loose wheel bearing causes mag pick up wheel speed sensor to miss counts, ad has predetermined amount of pulsed electrical signals it produces, when one not equal to others then pops code. Good luck write what code is found and where. Thx

Car shakes when i press on the breaks


The most likely cause is a warped or unevenly worn disc (front brakes) or drum (rear brakes on some models). Problems with the calipers can also cause intermittent grabbing, which would make that wheel vibrate.
A bad wheel bearing is another possibility; the bearing may intermittently lock up under the decelerating force from braking. In this case, you probably also have a rumbling noise at certain speeds from the offending bearing.
If the low traction or ABS light comes on when you get the brake and shake, the ABS may need repairs. This is a low-probability situation.
I recommend an inspection of each brake and wheel bearing. (Wheel lug problems may be involved, but you'll see those when you pull the wheel to look at the brake.) If there is visible wear on the drum or rotor, check to see if it still in allowable limits (any car parts store that does brake turning will be happy to measure it for you).

Weird noise happens when i turn my steering wheel at slow speeds, more sharper turns


The noise needs to be identified to if this comes from the steering linkages or the penumatics. The test would be better is you can hoist the car and test then release and test as the noise could must be heard better with wheels resting. If not the noise is linked with the movement and so it can be fault in the hub, bearings , the ball joints or the suspension.
Remove bothe side wheels and check hub and bearings, check for fault in the tie-rod ends and the linkages to the steering system. You might find the fault in this section.

How do I get the rear spindle off so I can replace the emergency brake shoes on my 2006 chrysler pacifica?



Adjustment

  1. Place parking brake lever in -full released- position.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Remove plug in parking brake shoe support to access adjuster star-wheel.
  4. Through the access hole, rotate the adjuster star wheel in the following direction to expand the shoes outward against the drum:
    1. Left brake - Rotate star-wheel toward rear of vehicle.
    2. Right brake - Rotate star-wheel toward front of vehicle.
  5. Using an appropriate tool, turn adjuster star wheel until wheel will not rotate (dead lock).
  6. Back off adjuster six detents (teeth).
  7. Rotate wheel, checking for light drag. If drag is too heavy, continue to back off adjuster one detent at a time until light drag is present. Do not back off star-wheel more than 17 detents from wheel lock.
  8. Install access plug.
  9. Adjust opposite wheel parking brake shoes using same method.
  10. Lower vehicle.
  11. Apply and release parking brake lever once to ensure proper operation of parking brakes.


Removal & Installation NOTE The following procedure may be used to remove shoes on either side of the vehicle.

  1. Lock out automatic adjuster in parking brake lever.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Access and remove rear hub and bearing.
  4. Remove parking brake cable bolt at knuckle.
  5. Completely back off parking brake shoe adjustment.
  6. Remove parking brake shoe adjuster spring.
  7. Remove shoe adjuster.
  8. Remove upper brake shoe hold-down clip and pin.
  9. Remove lower brake shoe hold-down clip and pin.
  10. Remove upper and lower shoes with return spring from shoe actuator.
  11. Remove return spring from shoes.

Purchased focus sport 2006 model no service manual. Mileage 43,000 kms. Need to know service intervals either time/mileage perhaps a copy of the service schedule will suffice.


These maintenance intervals come from the maintenance interval calculator
at www.autozone.com, using a starting point of 25,800 miles (43000 km), and
assuming 1000 miles (1666 km) driven per month, and "severe driving conditions," which
are actually normal usage characteristics, such as frequent short trips, urban driving, waiting in traffic, driving in hot weather, trips under 16 km in cold weather, etc.
