The only way I could think this would happen is if you reversed the post on the battery and started the car. You could have fried some electrical wires.

Transmission


Your problem is a bad CV axle and outer carrier bearing failure. The grinding is coming from brake rotor on that side due to the bearing failure. the brake rotor and bearing is causing the lock down. Do not attempt to drive or further damage will occur. Transmission is probably OK. Replace both sides (CV axels and Carrier bearings, 150,000 is time) Check brake components for damage and replace pads while you are there.

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.

What do need (tools) and the process to replace front and rear brakes in a 1998 Chevy Malibu?


Tools: 3/8 drive sockets and ratchet. 4, 6in extensions. 3/8 to 1/2 in adapter and 1/2 in breaker bar, SAE wrench set, hex key set (large) Long big flat screwdriver vise grips, pliers, brake spring tools. Jacks stands and tire equipment. Supplies: New pads, shoes, and brake fluid. Jack up the front and jackstand the car (block the back tires w/ wooden chocks). Remove the front tires. Loosen the caliper assembly bolts and pry the caliper away from the pads. Remove bolts and lift caliper up and out of the way being careful not to damage the lines and keeping the pads matched. Replace in reverse. Do the rear next. Remove tires, drums. Use the brake spring tools to take the shoes off front lining first. Place the springs on the ground neatly (like they looked on the backing plate). Replace in reverse. Start car and give brakes a few pumps and top off reservoir.
