Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Can you drive the vehicle at all? Are the brakes locked on all the time?

Is the ABS light on?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I can go in reverse just fine its just when I try and go forward
Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, sounds like maybe a wheel bearing may be bad or brake caliper bolt has fell out locking up the wheel. I would jack the vehicle , check for loose wheel bearings or binding wheels.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
