I had the rear hub bearing explode inside my axle, completely came apart, to the point when i pulled the axle out of the housing, there was NOTHING on it. I drove for 10-15 miles towing a 6,000lbs trailer before i realized it went bad, and the only way i realized it was because the gear oil was burning on the brakes and smoking profusely. Its possible to not feel it but still be SIGNIFICANTLY bad.
Most of the time if I let off the gas I slow down quicker than I would expect- sort of like in a manual transmission and letting off the gas and keeping it in gear. The engine, in gear, slows the car down. Or perhaps it feels like I am towing a trailer, like something is holding me back. There are times though when I let off the gas and it feels like the transmission is not in gear so I coast much easier. When this happens, I also feel like the acceleration is much easier and with less effort.
Okay, just an update........first off, thanks to all with the suggestions! Love this forum.
Here is where I'm at.
1. I replaced brakes and rotors (was needing done regardless) and that wasn't it.
2. None of the brakes looked as though they were sticking.
3. All of the calipers seemed to move without issue and wasn't sticking.
4. The parking brake seemed okay with no excessive wear on the pad. Still looked new.
5. All bearings seemed to move freely and there was no excessive movement or noise.
6. I bought the MAF cleaner and cleaned everything and that wasn't it either.
I am running out of hope. I mentioned the symptoms to my dad and he said it sounds like a pcv valve. Does that make any sense or is he just a crazy old kooke, lol? If that is even a possibility, I don't know where (or how many) there are? Any insight?
Any other suggestions to check is welcome too.
Thanks again guys for all the help!
