Q: Vehicle pulling to the right.

asked by on January 13, 2016

My Ford is making loud noises while driving. The vehicle is also pulling to the right.

I first have to assume you are talking about one issue and not two different complaints. I would have to say your wheel bearing on the right is grinding or the brakes have locked up on that same wheel. The wheel would have to be lifted and the brakes checked to see if they are seized or the wheel bearings are bad. I would recommend having a mechanic, like the certified ones at YourMechanic, come and check it out for you to see what is causing the problem.
