Question about Ford F-150
As I was driving at about 15 miles an hour there was a sudden loud noise from the rear tire and the truck skidded to a stop. I tried to go forward and it would not move. I put the vehicle in reverse and it moved so I put it back into drive and it worked fine. I think it may have something to do with the brakes, but after the incident it drove fine and stopped fine.
Likely the parking brake shoes fell off the backing. Remove rear rotors to check.

I was having problems with 2001 Lexus also at the end of November beginning of December of this year. I needed inspection, the 3rd oxygen sensor was replaced. Mechanic stated that the noise from my car seemed to be coming from the Transmission. mechanic asked me to drive the car for a few days to be sure the oxygen sensor was fine. On my way back to drop off car for final inspection the car started to buck. Brought it back to mechanic, left it with him, he called and the car stopped moving. I had to have the transmission replaced plus the wall in back where fluid was leaking. Cost $3,200.00 plus towing $150. Plus oxygen sensor part and replacement and inspection another $600.00. Now runs very well, expensive however much less than the expensive of a new car. Happy New Year!!

disconnect rear drive shaft to see if tires move if not the rear end pinion gears might have a bad bearing causing the lock up.the fastest way to repair it is to replace gear box with good used one from a salvage yard.the reason I'm telling you this is because although your gear box might be repairable, it would have to be done by a professional and cost would be high.

Sounds more like brakes, Possible springs or wheel cylinder.

Testimonial: "It was the Cylinder. It had leaked and gummed up the rotor. Replaced cylinder and shoes and was good to go! Thanks."
I hate to say it but it sounds like you have a severe problem in the rear end. Here are a couple of things i would do. First pull off your tires and wheels. Of course you need to put the truck on jack stands and block the wheels for safety! Disconnect your rear drive line so you know nothing from front diff or trans could be affecting it. Next spin the brake rotors by hand and inspect them for severe damage. Go forwards and backwards. Also listen in your rear end for grinding or clunking noises and also excessive play front foward to reverse. And last drain your oil and put your finger up inside the housing as far as you can and feel for large pieces that should not be there. This should give you a good idea if it is in your braking sytem your rear end or wether you need to start looking at front diff. or the trans. If all is good on rear end do the same thing for front diff and inspect it as well. Make sure you pull front driveline off!

Testimonial: "my problem appears to be the inner brake pad which was used up and slipped out of place and would wedge itself between the housing and the hub. Thanks"
