86' Ranger 2.3> squealing noises as wheels turn???
I have a 1986 Ford Ranger 2.3, 5-speed, 2 wheel drive. I had new tires and brakes installed about three years ago.
Most recently, while driving around town, I’ve noticed a squealing, squeaking kind of noise that continues until I stop the truck.
My brakes seem to be fine, and stop me when I need to. I don’t do much driving these past three years, so the last thing I would suspect would be worn brake pads.
Question: Do wheel cylinders or rotors make these continuous squeaking noises? I would like to be prepared with a little bit of knowledge before I get any bad news. I don’t know if this is something I could wait on, or if this problem will manifest itself with a BIGGER, MORE DANGEROUS problem on the road.
After I hear from a few possible ideas on what this could be, I will take the truck back to the place I purchased the tires and have them look at the drums, while they rotate the tires. Thanks!
