The 1996 Ford Explorer I bought used makes a droning sound like being in a small airplane when the vehicle is moving. It is gone when I turn or curve to the right and does not make the sound when the car...


Front wheel hub bearings are very common problems with this particular vehicle. Try jacking the vehicle with the front wheels off the ground. Check for excessive "play" as you wiggle the front wheels while holding the tire at the 9 & 3 o'clock position, then 12 & 6 o'clock position. If the movement detected is the same at both positions, replace the front wheel bearings.

Note: This test also allows you to check for worn tie rods and ball joints. Replace as needed. The droning sound points to bad bearings, though.

My 2004 sierra denali vibrates or feels like I'm running over the lane change bumps on the freeway. What could it be? The rear end, the transfercase, or the drive line?


Most likely a bad wheel bearing assembly, Jack up each wheel individualy starting at right front (passenger) under lower control arm, just enough to get tire of the ground. With tire still on place hands on outside of tire at 3 oclock & 9 oclock & try to move in & out, push & pull. If there is play it will need to be replaced. Check all 4 wheels this way.

My truck is making a noise from the front end, when i drive it sounds like a deep hum


Jack up each front wheel under lower control arm. With tire on & off the ground, with hands at 3 oclock & 9 oclock on outside of tire, try and move in & out. If you can move it in or out you most likely need a wheel bearing assembly.

Honda civic 2004 key will not turn in ignition switch even after moving the wheel for the tires to loosen


First try another key if you have one. Second insert the key and while slightly turning it wiggle the key in a upward & downward motion. Often this will allow the key to turn. What you need to do to correct the problem (provided your key is not the problem) is to replace the ignition switch tumbler. It sounds like you only need the tumbler and not the entire switch which would include the steering wheel lock pin.

Grease leaking from the front passenger


Inner, (Large), wheel bearing has failed. This has caused the grease seal to fail.
Solution is to replace the bearing, and seal.

1.Check the bearing race in the brake rotor. If any pits, scoring, or other evidence of break down is present, the bearing race must be replaced also.

2.Check the outer wheel bearing and bearing race also. The inner bearing receives the most wear, but cleaning, and inspection of both bearings, and races is a standard procedure.

3.Observe the area on the spindle where the grease seal contacts. Insure that the spindle area is of good repair, and no scoring is evident.

The Black residue that you observe is grease mixed with brake dust.

The vehicle must be jacked up in the front, with safety stands placed in the proper area on both sides. Wheel chocks should be used behind the rear tires. The vehicle should be on a flat hard surface.

The wheel/tire is removed, then the brake caliper. The caliper is not removed from the brake hose, but hung from a hanger device, from the frame of the vehicle. (Small rubber tie down strap? Wire clothes hanger?)

Then the dust cap is removed, cotter pin, and spindle nut. Ease the brake rotor out, be ready to catch the outer bearing. Remove the brake rotor.

Rotor laying on two small wood blocks, (2x4's? 4x4?), blocks under rotor face. (Where the brake pads rub against)
Blocks placed so area of grease seal is not resting on them. Rotor is laying on blocks with outside of rotor facing up. (Outside of rotor faces outside of Tahoe)

Take a long punch, and tap out the grease seal from the inside of the rotor. Through the hole where the spindle goes through. Be careful that the punch is resting on the metal ring of the seal, and not the bearing race edge.

Low level growling noise at rt. front wheel increases with speed. No change if in or out of gear. Can start hearing noise begining about 38 mph. very slight vibration Car has 77,000 miles and is well...


first rotate the tires see if there is a change. If that does not have a desirable effect there may be a worn wheel bearing,take note if the sound or vibration gets louder as you turn a corner, try left turns as well as right turns if the noise increases it is a wheel bearing.

Wheel rub at high speeds.


It sounds like a bad bearing on the right side hub. you can check this by raising the front of the car till the tires are off the grond. Grab the tire and try to wiggle it up and down and front to back if there is any play replace the bearing. check both sides

Vibration


It sounds like a possible bad front wheel bearing they will make like a humming or growling noise.The pull could be air pressure a little lower in the right front tire than the left front check the air in all tires and if pull is still there take the left front put it on the right front and put the right front tire on the left front.Sometimes tires get what they call radial pull and that will fix it or make it go the other way if it goes the other way either get new tires or put the back tires on the front of the vehicle and put the front tires on the back.
