You think the starter is staying engaged when you let go of the key ? Starter relay contacts sticking ?

What is causing my explorer to **** & clunk with a loud grinding or rubbing noise when i turn corners?


Sounds like you have either ball joint issues, or problems with the CV joints. The other possibility is a problem in the transfer case causing the front axle to bind. You can physically look at the CV joint boots to see if they are torn open and many times you can grab onto the axle and give it a good tug to see if it will move..it should not.

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer XLT that has started to make a bad noise when the stairing wheel is turned and when backing up , it feels if the parking brake is on, took it to the dealer they had for a day...


sounds like tire rub issue, as inflating tire solved the issue for a short while possibly that the tires placed on vehicle maybe incorrect size width/height, check tire size, look in wheel well for areas of possible rubbing.

The ABS light came on (stayed on) and the 4X4 HIGH light flashes. There is also a noticable grinding/rubbing noise coming from the front wheel-well when I'm making a sharp turn, going out of a tight space...


Here is my question

The ABS Light is on. For how long,and why are you here,v.s. having it checked out and repaired.
The grinding/etc,would have me putting the vehicle up on stands immediately, and checking it out. I would in no way drive it,like that

Sounds as though your wheel bearing,tone ring,abs sensor etc ,are being chewed up, and causing the code to set

2002 ford explorer jerking


There are quite a few things to check here like the rear axle pinion bearing preload and all the wheel hub bearings. The best they you can do is run it while on a rack in 4wd and listen to it from underneith the vehicle.

Window won't go up. Grinding noise like grinding


The window motors for some reason have plastic gears. You can rebuild or replace them, it is just a pain. I've used Epoxy to fill in the gears where they attach, if you do that, it will last about a year, depending on how often you use it, but it only costs a couple bucks as opposed to 80-150 or more for motor.
