Question about 2004 Ford F150

3 Answers

How do I fix my F150 Ford from squeaking on the front driver side.

When I go over bumps at a speed of 10 to 30 miles my truck starts squeaking. Also if I am driving a speed of 30 to 40 miles it squeaks.

There are 30-40 components related to your front end steering suspension and ride control and alignment... Go have a shake down done at a reputable ture/alignment shop and shorten your list to what's necessary

It's your universal joints. Your universal joints have become warn and what's happening is as you accelerate its moving and the loose universal joints are moving which is causing the noise. It occurs at low speeds because of a slight wobble as speed increases the wobble goes away and so does the noise. It's best to change the font and back at the same time you can find them at your local part store starting at $19.99 each. As for your front end lubricate it real good. Hope this was helpful.

SOURCE: ford focus 2000 squeaks front passenger side

sounds like a squealing belt or bad pulley on the engine.
If the brakes are indeed fine, then the solution is to work on the engine.
doubt if it's a wheel bearing, too.

SOURCE: squeaking from driver side front tire

Tie rod ends, ball joint, or Upper strut bearing. An alignment shop would give you an estimate for the repair. You can borrow tools to install the bigger stuff at most Autoparts stores. But for all of these repairs you should get an alignment after replacing any one of these parts.

The noise would usually be the strut or the control arm bushings. The vibration could also be the component making the noise, or warped brake rotors.

Petroleum will rot bushings, you may consider a car wash with and undercarriage sprayer and see if noise goes away. This may indicate a bushing problem if noise goes away. If not, ball joint probably.

My front end squeaks when i go over bumps


The last thing you should do is blindly throw money at it without a proper diagnosis, to regretfully learn the problem still exists. Squeaks can be as simple as a worn shock mount, belt slippage, weather stripping in need of lubricant. or a myriad of other things that cost far less than a suspension overhaul.

If it is your shocks/struts, look for the outside of the shock cylinder to appear wet/oily. Hydraulic fluid leaks are proof your shocks/struts need replacing (best to replace all 4, but at the very least the front or rears should be replaced in pairs), and putting it off can certainly lead to a domino effect of failed components (fragged ball joints or tie rod ends, shredded bushings, excessive tire wear, etc..)

If you have a reliable mechanic, that's where I would head. However, if you are more of a DIY'er, grab a friend and head out to a vacant lot with some bumps where you can try and reproduce the problem. While one of you drives slowly, CAREFULLY, the other walk along side and try to pinpoint the source of the squeak (front driver side, rear passenger side, engine compartment, trunk, wherever). Note the speed and direction of turn when the squeak(s) appear, forward AND reverse? Does it happen when air temp is cold/hot, all the time? This is valuable info to relay to a mechanic.

The point is, suspension systems can be wildly complex and sensitive (as any BMW owner can testify), or fairly simple (think mid-70's leaf-sprung trucks).

Another factor is how many miles have you logged on your Kia? If you've hit 80k miles or more, this is when you can expect to start replacing many components that have reached the end of their service life.

With a little more info, a more precise diagnosis can be given.

Where exactly is the oxygen sensor on the muffler on a 2003 Ford F150 series pick-up? I have to change the sensor


Not on the muffler,better start studying

They are in the exhaust converters

You replace the front 2 only at 100,000
miles or when they fail

Sensor 1 is the front one closest to the engine

Bank 1 is on the pass side
Bank 2 is on the driver side

You do not do the rear or monitor sensors
unless they fail

My front driver side squeaks when I go over bumps.


most lkiely just the sway bar rubber bushing are noisy, replace them, if that doesn't cure the problem you may need upper control arm bushings, a front end shop should check them out before u do anything, u didn't state the miles on the truck or how it is driven, off road etc.

Sometimes the bushings will squeak when put under load like a speed bump that is normal. But if you hear the same squeak while driving in other conditions you might want to check your outer tie end rod.
