I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac and the drivers side front wheel bearing has gone out several times and no one knows what the problem is why don't they put sealed bearings so you don, T have to change them every 6 months.

I own a 2001 Sport Trac. I had to pay $934 to bryan automotive in Decatur Texas to replace both right and left axles, and the outer bearings. The rear end still has a slight whining at 55-70 mph. He spoke with someone at the Ford house in Decatur tx, and was told some sport tracs will have this noise. I have owned numerous vehicles and have never had a rear end go out. Something was definitely wrong. Please have Ford reimburse people and do a recall.

The front drivers side wheel bearing runs dry on lubrication causing the bearing to screech loud. The same bearing has had to be replaced twice on my 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac in ten months.
