The sensor is attached to the output shaft of the transmission and should not be affected by the work that you did. Are the ABS sensors ok?

My 2002 Ford Windstar had tires replaced in August. When we got it back there was a wearing/grinding sound coming from the passenger front tire. We dismissed this as a new tire sound since we have not had...


if they are a real tire place they should know if you need brakes . the windstar are known for bad wheel bearing,and here again if they are a true shop they can tell if the whell bearing is bad . by shaking the tire up and down, it will give the same play as a bad ball joint

2001 ford windstar the right axle spin slower then the left one. What can be the problem i both two new axle and it stil spin slower then the right but it move better do i need to rebuild the trans


I don't think you can assess the condition of the transaxle by spinning the wheels.
The differential in the transaxle converts power from the transmission to the wheels by a set of gears. It would almost impossible for one side to turn at a different speed than the other.
You may have more drag on the brakes on one wheel, or the fluid in the transaxle could cause one side to go slower with the van off the ground.

2001 Ford windstar has a rumble/vibration on left front when driving over speeds of 10 mph. Consstant and increases with speed.


It sounds like you have a bad spindle/hub. You will need to jack up the front left tire, remove the wheel and the brake caliper and pads. Now spin the hub by hand. If you hear a grinding like sounds or low rumble sound, or there is more resistance than normal, replace your hub/spindle assembly.

A LOUD hum from the right front while driving a 2001 Windstar. I assume it to b the wheel bearing. Is their another possible reason for this noise?


Could be road noise from a shifted belt in the tire. could be a drive axle going out. those wheel bearings dont hum 99% of the time when they go bad,generally they have a low grinding sound,espesially when you turn,and your teering gets a bit loose and sloppy.
also check to make sure that you dont have a broken strut that may be touching the tire..try putting on your spare and see if that fixex it,if so its a shifted belt in that tire.

Your right, its not safe to drive in this condition, sounds like tire is strarting to seperate, but for the life of me, couldn't tell you why when only hot. Take it to a tire shop and see what they say.
