SOURCE: 05 equnox sharp turn noise

I forgot to ask if the noise was front or rear and stationary or moving so I will cover both.

If the noise is while the truck is stationary and the noise is from the front I would have to say the power steering pump. I have been changing several lately for similar concerns.

As far as the rear if the noise happens while making sharp turns and makes a whirring/growling noise while in motion its the rear differntial. What you can do yourself to be sure is find an open lot and drive in rather tight circles for about a minute, then noise should stop. This action flushes the clutch disks and stops the noise. If the noise goes away you will need to do a rear diff flush.

The fluid is very expensive so be sure this is your problem first.

In order to do the flush drive in tight circles for 5 minutes in each direction and then drain and fill the rear diff with the new Versatrak fluid.

Good Luck

SOURCE: thumping or clicking noise when steering sharp right turns

If it's a 4WD then your front universal joint(s) on the front wheel drive shafts are on the way out and should be replaced. They should be replaced as a pair (both sides) so that you have uniform wear, but you can replace the bad one to solve the problem. The noise should be coming from one side or the other, indicating which one is going bad, but it's most likely the right sive CV joint. Also, it the rubber boot on the end of the driveshaft is damaged or torn, that would point to the offending joint. Your parts store should be able to sell you a reconditioned half shaft to fix the problem. Replacement can be done at home with decent tools.

SOURCE: 2002 Pontiac Aztek - AWD disable light and Anti Lock Light

AWD disabled from a sensor unit in rear differential that senses high temp. This thing is over $300. Whine is from fluid. Need to change fluid. This versatrack fluid is about $40 per bottle and you need 3 bottles. Thumping noise is from loose rear knuckle bushings. These are part of the entire rear knuckle assy. and you must replace complete knuckle.

When we travel going up hill at first it started like it was missing then as we got further up the the ford started to make aloud thumping noise then we coul'nt go more hen 5 mi per hour when going down...


Take it back to whatever shop installed the rebuilt engine and make them troubleshoot the problem. There are no coincidences ...
However, "loud thumping noises" don't sound good at all.

My 2002 Pontiac Sunfire makes a thum-thump-thump sound while driving it


Well, I will assume that the feel and the noise is not from the front. A rule of thumb is that if the rear are thumping and pulsing, you would feel it in the pedal. If it were the front, you would not, you would feel it in the car.
The drums may have not been turned correctly, and are out of round, or have a hot spot on them. This would be a dis colorization in a spot of the drum. Make sure that there is some grease on the shoe / to backing plate slide areas. Three spots on each shoe. The wheel cylinder may be loose, or the backing plate loose. If no ABS light, then that is not the problem. If this work was done to fix the same problem, and no change, then i would look at the front brakes if all else looks OK in the rear.

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer XLT that has started to make a bad noise when the stairing wheel is turned and when backing up , it feels if the parking brake is on, took it to the dealer they had for a day...


sounds like tire rub issue, as inflating tire solved the issue for a short while possibly that the tires placed on vehicle maybe incorrect size width/height, check tire size, look in wheel well for areas of possible rubbing.

I have a 2002 ford explore that will not switch from cold to hot


The issue is with the blend motor under the dash that controls the door too switch from hot to cold, if you look under the dash on the passenger side on the heater box you will see a little black box bolted on it with wires coming out of it, there is probably more than one. One controls where the air goes and one controls from hot to cold.
