You need to remove the belt and check for a bad pulley.
If this is something that you don't know how to do take it to a friend or friendly repair shop.
Once you have the belt off spin each pulley to find one that does not spin freely. The only one that you won't be able to spin will be the bottom one which is the crankshaft.
Mare sure the radiator support shows the belt routing diagram for re-install, or draw one yourself.

Have your mechanic check your serpentine belt and your belt tension-er

07 explorer sport trac, abs and traction control coming on at slow speed not allowing me to drive above 5mph??????????


Suggest you have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Also do you hear any grinding noise ? I have seen a bad wheel bearing cause this problem . Unwanted ABS activation locks up the wheel . and the lights come on .

Why wont 2005 ford sport trac shift out of 4x4 low


A bad fuse, bad switch, bad wiring, bad motor/module, or the T case has an internal problem. Most times is the motor/module.

Check the boots on the CV joints. If one cracks and the grease flew out, the joint may be going bad.

How do I remove the stereo from my 2007 Sport Trac?


  1. Lift the console lid.
  2. Take the two screws out from the front console cover. It is the cover that goes down around the shifter.
  3. Remove the cover by pulling up from the back.
  4. Next pull the front cover off from around the radio. This cover goes all the way down to the center console.
  5. Unlug all connections.
  6. Take the 4 screws out from around the radio that hold it in.
To install just repeat the steps in reverse.

My 2001 ford explorer sport will not start


It doesn't sound like a fuel pump. Probably not the starter either. More likely coolant is getting into the cylinders. This can come from a bad intake manifold gasket or a bad head gasket.
