If you have an auto-4wd or AWD transfer case in your SUV, you NEED to have the same size tires all around. Half of your truck is trying to drive at a slightly different speed than the other half. Your tires are going to wear out 10x faster than normal, and it's VERY possible that your transfer case or differentials will be damaged and leave you on the side of the road. I would recommend having it towed on a flatbed to get the correct tires.

When I get to 45 mph my car has a thumping noise. Sounds like to me something to do with the drive train...cv axle, or something else. please help me I need this car fixed.


Check your tires, you may have a bad tire and make sure it's at proper tire pressure 32psi. Also check all the linkage like the sway bar end links, the bushings could be worn and moving around. Best thing to do is spend some money and have a tire shop rebalanced the wheels $15.00 each at most places and have them inspect the front suspension for any damaged or worn parts causing the noise you have. You can try rotating the front to rear wheels to see if the noise moves from the front to the rear to eliminate the tires as the cause of the noise, just make sure there all at 32psi. Good luck and be safe.

My car makes a humming noise when excellerating and is especcially noisey when turning steering wheel to the left. there is also a continous squeak. my husband put WD40 on the bolt on power steering box...


If WD-40 got on belt, and squeak went away for a while, it may just need a new belt. The humming noise sounds like a worn wheel bearing that should be checked and replaced if needed. If squeak goes away when you push slightly on brake pedal, it may be rotor on same side as wheel bearing making the noise due to slight shifting of rotor because of worn bearing.You can try swapping tires on front from one side to other to confirm it isn't tire problem as well. If noise shifts to other side, then it's a tire.

What cause a car make the noise on the wheels when driving. All tires are brand new.


1- It could be wheel bearing worn down. You can check this by jack up each wheel, and juggling in rotation to see a circular gap play. 2- It could be wheel nuts loosed to make noise. Remember after replacing tires, any shop always tells you to bring car back after driving for a certain distance to make sure these nuts are not loosing.

Tire sensor fault on our 2006 Ford Explorer after new tires


2006 Ford Truck Explorer
NOTE: The tire pressure sensor training prcedure must be done in an area without radio frequency (RF) noise. RF noise is generated by electrical motor and appliance operation, cell phones, and remote transmitters.

1. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position
2. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait more than two minutes between each key cycle.
3. Press and release the brake pedal
4. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

Sequence:
1- Left Front Tire
2- Right Front Tire
3- Right Rear Tire
4- Left Rear Tire


5. Turn the ignition switch from the OFF position to the RUN position three times, ending in the RUN position. Do not wait for more than two minutes between each key cycle.
6. The horn will sound once and the TPMS indicator will flash if train mode has been entered successfully. If equipped, the message center displays "TRAIN LEFT FRONT TIRE." Place the magnet on the valve stem of the LF tire pressure sensor. The horn will sound briefly to indicate that the tire pressure sensor has been recognized by the TPMS module.
7.Within two minutes after the horn sounds, place the magnet on the valve stem of the RF tire pressure sensor. NOTE: If the TPMS module does not recognize any one of the four tire pressure sensors during the tire training procedure, the horn will sound twice and the message center (if equipped) will display "TIRE TRAINING MODE INCOMPLETE." If this occurs, the entire procedure must be repeated from Step 1.
8. Repeat Step 7 for the RR and LR tires. When the tire training procedure is complete, the horn will sound once and the message center (if equipped) will display TIRE TRAINING MODE COMPLETE.

This should help. For now, probably all Fords are like this. And I do not believe that Ford puts sensors in their spares (some GMs do).
Good luck

Right rear axel makes noise


You need to jack it up, And put it on jack stands. Its a safty thing. Next spin the tires with the engine, Put it in drive. let the Brake off slow. Don't forget to block the front tires with a brick, or a 4x4 or 2 pieces of fire wood. Put one under each front tire. Now run the engine 30 to 35 miles per hour.With the tires still on your Rover. Pay close attn to the noise as the tires spin. Now pull the wheels and pull the rotor or drum off. Now if its a bearing you will here it. Be sure to let off the gas pedal very slowly so you won't hurt the drive train. We checked wheel balance, Wheel bearings, Brake noise, even out of round tires can be spoted while running the tires on and off to do the test. its like driving it down the road but you can get down there and look and hear things. I sure hope this is helpfull to you.

What wrong?


Hi Axer,

The Range Rovers have permanently engaged Four Wheel Drive. If the tires are different sizes, they're spinning at different rates. Or trying to.

If you were off-road, it wouldn't matter too much, but on paved road, where the tires tend to grip not slip, these different rates subject a locked drive train to tremendous stress. This can bind up the gearing in the transfer case. Hopefully after only ten minutes, no permanent damage was done.

You can relieve this stress by jacking one end completely off the ground. Front or back. As the tires lose their grip on the road, you should see them spin slightly. That's good news. Once released you should be able to move again.

While it's in the air, you should probably put the original size tires back on. So choose which end to jack accordingly.

Comment me back to let me know how it goes.
Good luck

Mike
