I have a 2000 taurus with 147k miles on it. The car is the v6 flex fuel version.
My car was suffering from an intolerably loud squeal when braking at low speeds. I took my car in and they said that needed new brake pads. I was also having a metal on metal noise when turning left coming from the front left tire. The mechanic said that the needed to replace the ball joint and that they had to tighten something else.
I had the brake pads replaced along with a work on the ball joint. The problem is now the brakes still squeak (not even close to as bad though), but now when I am driving straight at lower speeds I hear a squeak/squeal coming from the same front left tire. I will be bringing the car back in on Monday, but I would like to know slightly more of what the problem could be.
Is the problem still with the ball joint or is there another issue?
