Likely a failed wheel bearing. And NO, you can’t continue to drive on it until you get some more money. Sorry.


#3

Does it pull when braking or just coasting?


#4

Could be the wheel bearing or a broken tie rod. Look under the front end, if a tie rod end broke, the tie rod will be hanging down.

Car and trucks don’t care if you have any money, they just break and need repair anyway. Especially when they are 35 years old.

I hope you parked it at a shop and got a ride home.

My ball joint broken. Yes its parked. I live my old truck and can have a mechanic friend come fix it for me at home. I have another vehicle now. So my old Francine is resting lol. Thanks for advice everyone

Check to be sure all the lug nuts are present and accounted for and that they are all properly tightened down…
