Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
1998 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130k miles
My wife's '98 Ford Taurus groans as you go faster. In a way it almost sounds like exhaust, but when you put it into neutral while at speed, the noise stays the same. I am thinking we are having a wheel bearing starting to go or we have a failing power steering pump. The fluids look good and the power steering works well. My wife thinks it doesn't glide along the road as well as it used to. It is quiet below 40 mph but it seems to groan at speeds above that. It doesn't matter if you are cornering or going straight. She claims she can feel it through the steering wheel.
The car had a new Ford rebuilt transmission put in at 75,000 miles and we had it flushed at 100k and it is due again.
have the same problem?
