Exclamation Need some help (moms taurus)

my mom came home from work today and said something is wrong with her car. she said around low speed it sounds like the tire is rubbing on something. I say alright let me drive it and ill tell you what i think. i get out on the road. 25mph slowing down to 20-15mph sounds like bump-bump-bump-bump from one of the rear wheels. I say ah theres that sound, maybe a busted sidewall . So i get on the main street and accelerate hard to 40mph. I found another sound. When i let off the gas after hard acceleration, and the ATX shifts up, it makes a cheeeeech sound. maybe a motor mount? Around 40mph it sounds like WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, loud. So maybe she needs a tire rotation and balancing? I dont know, someone help. Thanks

That sounds like something more then just a roatation and balance... I think you otta take that to a garage.

obvisouly if you're tranny is acting up it's tranny probs... as for the tires you might have a broken belt. check along the sidewalls to see if you see any bubbles(buldges*SP) if not there you might have a broken belt in the middle of the tire. A good garage would be able to tell.
