    1996 Ford Explorer with those God awful squeaky springs. I plan on replacing all 4 shock absorbers here pretty soon but man those springs squeak when I drive and when I turn.

    Replace water pump pulley?

    My 2004 engine is squeaking horribly more when accelerator is pushed. I’ve changed the belt and no change but I’ve narrowed it down to the water pump pulley area. So is it possible to change the water pump pulley and would that change the bearing also? Thanks

    My 2003 Mountaineer has the classic squeaky/creaky front end. After WD40ing EVERYTHING to no avail, I've finally narrowed it down to the RF lower ball joint.

    Squeaking / Squealing Brakes

    I got my Limited at the end of March. It has about 5,000 miles on it. When I'm going slow like at a drive-thru window and apply the brakes, they squeal. It doesn't happen if I'm driving at regular speeds and brake. Any ideas about the squeal. I can't believe that the brakes are going bad.

    Well our old Mountaineer did this at around 100k miles but now our 06 EB is doing with about 30k.:mad: Sometimes when you press the brake pedal it spueaks or makes a rubber rubbing sound and you can feel it in the pedal.
