#3847 of 4149 2006 Ford Escape XLT V6 Roaring Grinding sound from back right tire/brake
Mar 03, 2010 (8:41 am)
My 2006 ford escape has 37,000 miles. While braking I heard a loud roaring sound coming from the back right tire/brake. I immediately drove to local repair shop and the car did not make the noise while they were testing it.... now the roaring grinding sound is back and louder than before, roars when braking, turning and a slight grinding sound while driving. What could be the problem and why does it make the sound and then stop for two months and now making the sound again? Suggestions? Car does not pull while braking.

Circumstances left the car sitting for about 5 months in NYC (so through the winter). I've just replaced the battery. It cranks, but it's not firing. What can I check/usual suspects, without having to tow it to a shop to resolve? thx for any input.

If the noise is coming from a particular wheel then open up that wheel. Sounds like a brake component problem, perhaps a wheel cylinder, busted spring or the like.

I have tried using a burned CD-R in my CD player and it just keeps trying to read a disc and never plays. A regular CD works fine. What CD types does the single disc CD Player support?

Chances are you burned the CD in data instead of music format. Anything burned in music format will play.

I don't usually make mistakes like that but now that you mention it that very well could be a possibility. Thanks for your help, I will post again if I have issues.

#3854 of 4149 A/C recharge question - low side location
May 06, 2010 (5:46 am)
I need to recharge the refrigerant on my 02 Tribute V6. There are two fittings: one is on a larger tube that runs between the condensor (I think) and the receiver drier, and sticks out horizontally.
The 2nd fitting is on a smaller tube, and runs from the condensor into the firewall (can't see where it terminates), and sticks up vertically.
I'm assuming that the first fitting above is the low side. Is that correct?
Thanks in advance for your help.

The line going from compressor to drier that has the fitting sideways is the low side (suction). The high side (discharge) does not have a fitting and it goes from compressor directly into the condenser The line that is coming from inside the firewall (which essentially is coming from the evaporator inside the car) to the condenser that has the fitting standing upright is a liquid line.

Thanks so much. I'm really hoping it's just a recharge issue, and not something more expensive.
