Customer Question
Previously my2002 f150 all...

Previously my2002 f150 all wheel drive ford would pull to the left when braking. Tonight i hit a bump and now it makes a scraping noise unless I put on the brake. When I backed up turning the wheel and it got as far as it would turn sharp it made a clunk sound when I hit the brake. Now I'm scared to drive it anywhere.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have power steering? Have you checked the power steering fluid?

I have power steering. I just ahd a pressure replaced and a brake caliper replaced at the same time

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your F150?

2002

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I had it repaired at an auto shop

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When I drive at speeds of 70km and 100km the truck will shake until I pass those speeds

Which brake caliper was replaced?

When it pulls to the left does the steering wheel turn or does it feel like the rear of the truck is no longer following the front of the truck?

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.

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

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
