Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2002 Mercury Mountaineer V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 85000 miles
I've got a 2002 Mercury Mountaineer with 85k miles for which I've just replace the front differential. 1 month ago, I had two tires replaced and an oil change on a saturday, and while I was on the road later that day she broke down on me. Evidently there was a Gear Oil Leak and when too much had leaked the front differential locked up. Now that we've swapped it out, my car is pulling to the left. I took it in to check the alignment but was told that wasn't the problem, I was told it had something to do with the differential or possibly an axle. I'm not sure if it's relevent but I want to mention that the two front tires had been replaced and were slightly wider than the rear tires. Once I replaced the differential, I rotated the wider tires to the rear and now my car is pulling to the left and it feels like the AWD is struggling. Not to mention I'm getting 6-7 MPG now. Also, when I make a sharp left turn there's a pop, or what sound likes like possibly a bad bearing or ball joint. Not sure. Can you help?
have the same problem?
