Asked by Feb 19, 2016 at 08:14 PM about the 2006 Ford F-150 FX4 SuperCrew Styleside 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I start up the truck and pop it into reverse and once I turn the wheel almost
all the way to the right or left it makes a grinding noise, but only then. Any
Ideas?

I did just have both front end wheel hubs replaced and I am about to
replace both front rotors and pads this weekend.

one more issue...
i was backing up the other day and heard this noise I turned the wheel
slightly to stop it from grinding then the power steering just goes out and I
cant turn! I pop it into park and park brake turn it off to restart and it wont
even turn over. I pop hood and had buddy start it then starts just fine no
problem. That has never happend before.

I appreciate the help, I not a genius mechanic but I can do some stuff
myself. Like I said Thanks For The Help!

If you turn the wheel either way until it hits the stop, do you hear the grinding noise? If so, the problem is within the power steering system, most likely the pump. If you determine the pump is making the noise, it's probably going out. Keep in mind hydraulic fluid in the brake system will get contaminated, most often by water which will build up in the system. If you have to change the pump, bleed all the black fluid out of the brake lines, replacing it with new clear fluid.
