Probably your front hubs. One or both. Fords noted for hub replacement. I had mine replaced at 60000 miles. Fixed the rumbling noise. It's really an easy fix if your handy. If not then expect about 800.00 to a 1000.00. go to explorer forums and get video on how to replace hubs

How many speed sensor's are there on a 99 Dodge Dakota sport an were are they located

There is an ABS wheel speed sensor located in the rear differential.
If this fails it affects the ABS and may cause your speedometer to read erroneously at speeds under 25-30 mph. There is also a VSS located in automatic transmission housing. Manual trans vehicles don't have this. They use engine rpm to determine speed as there is supposedly no slippage in the manual drive train.

My 2000 ford excursion 6.8lts motor has the following problem: when the speed reaches 35 to 45 mph starts to lose power and low revolutions and when you release the acerelador and accelerate it starts over...

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

2004 mazda Tribute (Ford Escape) 3.0L AWD 'chugs' whenever pressing the gas/load on the motor. possible motor/drivetrain issue & ABS.

I think you may have a Cat. Converter plugging up. It can make the car run bad and give an unholy vibration. You could remove a front O2 sensor to check and see if it runs better with it out. I have seen this before on an Escape. Also have had bad coils. Ford has had some trouble with them. The ABS is most likely a wheel speed sensor. They read off a ring on the CV shafts. You should inspect them for missing teeth. Other than that if you have access to a scan tool, drive it while watching the datastream and look for a wheel speed sensor dropping off to 0 or 3 mph when braking. Hope this helps.

have the abs module checked for codes to find out what the problem is.when the system detects a fault in the system it turns on the abs light and check the e-brake to make sure its all the way off.the humming noise sounds like its coming from the abs hydraulic unit that`s not shutting off.

I think it is time for a brake job. I think the scrapper on the disk is telling you it NOW time to get the front brakes serviced. Delaying the service will probably result in more damage to your disks.

2010 camry click sound at the front, as the car start firt acceleration in drive gear. thanks

yes, i just bought a 2010 camry in Decmber 09, it hasn't been a month yet, and I hear that light "thump" sound coming from the hood, when the car is put into drive after turning it on. As i drive off, and the spee reaches 15 mph, i hear that thump sound. The dealership said that that is due to the ABS system being initialized. How many other people hear that. For some people it might not be a thump type of sound it might be a loud "click" type of sound. Please let us know. Thanks.

2003 Grand AM Service engine soon light is on, ABS light is on and Traction control light is on. I suspect it is one of the wheel sensors? And if so which one?

You would need a scaner to pull data out of your computer, go into the A.B.S. mode scroll to wheel speed sensor, while some one drives the car for you, check MPH on front and rear wheels sensor, the one that show 0 MPH is the bad sensor. Replace and recheck, Also check harnness first.
