Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have 2005 Ford Escape V6.Took car to repair. They messed it up.They replace one cylinder and then messed up the computer board.I had to have computer board replaced and the 6 cylinders.Then towed to Dealership to have it coded or programed. Now when I drive it, it seems to vibrated between the speed of 10 to 25 miles per hour and the right wheel feels alot vibration.after that it runs smoothly. I can't afford any more money to  put into it.I spend $3000..They also worked on my steering and when you turn it makes like a loud crank noise..I desperately need some advise. Thank you!

Now when you say they replaced one cylinder what do you mean ?

Firebird, the OP probably means the ignition coils. The vibration is either one of the U-joints in the drivetrain or the torque convertor in the transmission. You can try draining and filling the trans fluid a few times, that might help, but you probably need some transmission work. $$$$ The Steering might be low on fluid on fluid causing the noise, which BTW uses the same trans fluid as the transmission. Check the reservoir, you will need top open the cap as it's hard to see the level through the white plastic. Loud noise might also be worn suspension components to time for a new steering rack. But since you can't afford to spend anymore money on it, just drive it till you can't anymore.
