problem #1

Escape 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,000 miles

Loud sqeaky noise noticed in right front end. Took to our mechanic. They said both outer tie rod ends and left lower ball joint have torn grease boots. We had them replace the right fornt lower ball joint, but they tell us this is an ongoing problem becasue of the torn grease boots and that eventually both tie rods will break.
