Vibration in the wheels when turning left or right

When driving my 1998 Ford expedition I often get a vibration when turning the wheel either left or right. Its actually a huge vibration. Feels like the front is falling apart. I heard that the fluid in the transfer case may need to be replaced. Can anybody help?

Check to see if the steering sector is about to fall off,and the power steering pump.If all that is secure,check the mounts on the trans,and the transfer case.If the mounts are broken,or weak,this would allow the vibration,when turning.Let me know if I can help any more.roniecon@gmail.com

While driving my 97 ford expedition, it makes a low rumbling sound, similar to the sound of driving on a shoulder. When I let off the gas or give it more gas, it usually stops for a few seconds, then it...


sounds like you have a wheel bearing that's bad, some vehicles have the wheel sensor mounted right to the wheel bearing.
best way to check is drive down a straight road at a steady speed, then turn the wheel left, like your going to change lanes, then do the same but this time turn the wheel to the right.
Now if the noise is louder when you turn left, then that tells you the right wheel bearing is bad, if you turn right and the noise is greater, then your left wheel bearing is bad.
the reason for this, is when you shift the vehicle left or right, the weight of the body shifts the opposite way that you are turning, thus putting more weight on the bearing, causing it to get louder.
Hope this helps.

Does 98 Ford Expedition 2WD have a front end differential?


No, there is no need for a differential for wheels that are not drive wheels. Differentials are reserved for driven wheels. Front wheel drive cars have a differential packed inside the transaxle case.

On a 1997 ford expedition, how do you change from 2wd to 4wd?


If you can't find the 4 X 4 switch, then your expedition is probably All Wheel Drive and it will not have an on or off. If it is "all wheel drive" it is like it is in four wheel drive all the time and will kick in when it feels a wheel slip. Check your owner's manual and you will probably find that it is all wheel drive. Hope this helps.

I have a 1998 ford expedition with 4wd and it pulls to the right. I had the tires rotated and the wheels aligned twice. The problem remains.


You could be having uneven tires; front-brake dragging; broken or sagging springs. Have your front brakes checked.

it could be stabilizer bar bushings, or tie rod ends on steering linkage. It depends on your suspension set up. 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive?

Front End noise and vibration


Check the U-joints and axle baerings. But its most likely because the truck is in four wheel drive.
