My right wheel isn't spinning when I'm driving and it's making this horrible squeaking/howling sound. What's wrong with it?

WHAT wheel(S) are not spinning? Front/Back/Left/Right?

Do you use your parking brake? If so, it may be stuck "ON" even when you release it.

Take it back to the mechanic and have them do a complete brake test. You're probably due for a brake job - brake pads and/or shoes, new rotors and/or drums.

I have a 2008 Ford Taurus x that went into limp mode while I was pulling onto a 4 lane highway. Nearly hit by semi this is not a "safe mode" The traction control light started blinking and the...

I have run into this on several fords this winter. What I have found in all of them is that a speed sensor had not necessarily failed but was no longer providing the correct information. The traction control saw this as "wheel spin" and started to apply the brakes to the wheels that where "spinning" although they where not.

Since this happened from a dead stop the ABS would not see the fault because all of the sensors started at 0 mph and only one stayed at 0mph and according to the programming this is perceived as wheel spin.

The pop and grind was the abs system kicking in. The traction control system uses the ABS system to control wheel spin.

If the system did not act up at the shop than there is no way they will be able to resolve it until it happens for them. All the ones I have dealt with have had no trouble codes but the symptoms where present and like you found out nearly impossible move (to pull into the shop)

Sounds like it could be a sticky brake on one of the rear wheels. this would only happen after the car has stood still for a while, nothing to worry about if this is the case but if you want it to stop you can inspect the rear calipers or ask a mechanic to check them.

Metal on metal sound

It could be the low brake pad indicators making the noise, indicating that the pads need to be replaced soon before damage to the rotors occurs. Have your brake's inspected and may have to replace the brake pads and rotors. You can save some money by turning the brake rotors, but there not to expansive and you might as well replace them.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya
