05 Montana. Will a bad left front hub cause vehicle to pull hard to left,???


YES
it will be running and jamming on the disc brake rotor and stopping that wheel from turning freely
it will be affecting wheel alignment as well

What is the reason for front grinding when turning


This due to either a worn wheel bearing or a worn front drive arm.

The most common cause of a grinding noise when turning is a worn front wheel bearing. What happens is that the weight of the car is shifted on to that wheel as you make the turn causing the worn bearing to make a grinding noise.

A noise coming from the front left wheel.Could it be by bearings,cv ,steering rak which is new ect.what could it be ?


Depends on the noise and when it occurs. If it is a knocking noise it is probably suspension / bushes, if it clicks especially when turning it is CV joints, if it is under breaking and sounds like metal on metal it is brake pads. There are other issues like damaged rims, damaged tyre that can cause shudder / noise.

Knocks when you turn, steering column jerks


Hi there - S Wilkins here.
Could be a front hub bearing or axle CV joint.
You may be able to raise the front wheels and move them around and find what is loose.

Knocking sound at steering wheel during turning of mistubishi adventure


It sounds like a ball joint is worn, possibly the rack end ball joint or tie rod end.
With the bumpy ride it could also be that the front shock absorber has failed.
Jack the front wheel up on each side in turn, grab the wheel at each side and shake it back and forth as hard as you can. If you hear or feel looseness, the problem is in the steering, as above.
Then shake the wheel while holding it at top and bottom. If you feel looseness then, the problem is in the front suspension wishbones.
Repeat this on the other front wheel. Let it down on the ground, then bounce each front corner up and down as hard as you can (you might have to have a second person with you doing this). If you hear a clunk or feel excessive bounciness, it is the shock absorber. When bouncing like this, the car should resist, and not keep bouncing when you let go.

Have 99 saturn SL2. car pulls left upon hard braking. replaced right front caliper which I thought was bad but didn't solve the problem. upon loosening of brake hose to right caliper, with a light brake...


Assuming that the Tires for both Left and Right are:
1. Equal Sizes.
2. Both Properly Inflated - this is a common problem.
3. Have equal wear on them. Example: If the Left Tire is balding on the outside and the Right Tire is balding on the inside, this too is definite sign of an aligment issue; and will cause unequal braking.
Pulling left (or right) during a hard brake might actual mean your Wheel Alignment is way off. When you get one, get a 4-wheel and not just a 2-wheel alignment.
Also: you thought the right thing, but the Left Caliper or Left Brake Hose might also be bad (sticking) causing the left side to brake "harder" then the right side.
You can also Bleed the entire System (all four wheels) starting at the Right Rear, then Left Rear, then Front Right, followed by the Left Front.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

On left turns there's a clicking or rubbing sound coming from left front wheel?


Without seeing and hearing the noise in person I can only speculate as to the actual cause of the problem. The issue is more than likely caused by one of the two following failures: 1. A failed CV axle boot on the drivers side nearest the wheel. 2. (less likely) A failing drivers side hub bearing. To me, however, your complaint describes to a "T" a bad CV axle. CV stands for constant velocity. This type of drive axle was designed for front wheel drive applications in order to allow the axles driving the front wheels to not only adapt to uneven road surfaces but also pivot with the steering knuckles to steer the vehicle while maintaining rotational speed. To achieve this CV axles use special joints at either end called trunions. These joints are lubricated with a thick grease which is contained by rubber boots. In your case the boot closest to the driver's front wheel has torn open allowing the grease to be thrown from the joint during driving. This joint, now unlubricated, has dried out and collected debris from the road. Making otherwise silent operation a disturbing load affair, especially when it is put under maximum stress ie a left hand turn.

Steering problems


The Obvious: You have something broken in the front end. What to do: get yourself under there and take a look at everything. Anything that looks amiss probably is. Jack both front wheels off the ground... lie down where the vehicle can't fall on you and have someone turn the wheels back and forth. Look and see what's preventing travel. If it's that bad, it shouldn't be that hard to find!

2002 Mazda Protege 5: I am having a knocking sound coming from my front right of the car.The noise is most noticable when turn right with speed. The noise is also there when driving straight but not all...


I would check the sway bar linkages, they are usually the first to go, and they are only $40. Its an easy 'do it yourself' project, remove the old one with torches or a grinder (with a small cutting wheel). You can also use a vise grip and sockets but it takes longer.

You can't tell these are damaged until you remove the part. I change mine every 100 000km or so.
