Taurus Warped Rotors?
Car is 1994 Taurus GL wagon, 3.8L, 4 wheel disc ABS brakes with 212 000 Km.
After a few minutes of driving the rear wheels making "whoop - whoop" noise.
Only happens when driving slow (like in parking lots or starting again from
a red light) and not pressing the brakes. Usually happens in the slow
I thought maybe my a rotor was wrapped.
Sent it to the shop because eventually the noise got really loud and
annoying. Got new rear rotors.
After a couple days problem came back.
Back to the shop, changed a rear calliper (the other side was changed a year
Back to the shop, they changed one rear rotor (free)... the mechanic found
rear bearings on one side could use changing soon but didn't think it was
A few days the "whooping" noise is back.
Not sure if this is related but...
For the last 3 years, I've been having troubles with vibrations from
steering wheel and dash when driving @ 110+ km/h. It seems to go away @ 130
I always rotate my tires every season (front to back).
I got my front rims balanced twice (16" Eagle Alloys mags with 205/55R16)
but it still vibrates.
I tried my winter tires ( 215/60R15 Blizzaks) on the front but the shakes
Most likely the it's cheapo Firehawk FTX tires I bought from Sears 4 seasons
I took it to 3 shops to check the front end and suspension and they couldn't
find any problems.
