From a dead stop is the ONLY time it does it...I will push the gas and its like the tires lock up in the front and there is a loud grinding type noise and then it like just releases and it takes off...doesn't happen all the time but I am baffled...had it up on lift last night and everything looks fine...I am THINKING its something to do with the front wheel drive because we had another front wheel drive vehicle we had to take the I THINK differential out and it never got replaced but the noise stopped...my brother seems to think its the transmission shift solenoid....any ideas? Also if you take it real easy from a dead stop it won't do it but if you just push slightly harder it makes it do the noise and it only lasts for about 2 or 3 seconds and then the tires on the front spin and they take off.

Engineered problem.
Sounds like your anti lock brakes are kicking in. Brakes drag and grind. Same thing on Ford F150s
Of course it's not cheap to fix as the control modual will require replacement.
See if it occurs in reverse also. That will confirm

I removed the ABS fuses last night on way home to see if it would stop since ABS light is on and it still does it. I'll try it in reverse though.

Is it AWD? Our 05 had a very similar problem. Seems like it was something to do with the rear, believe it or not. Biggest problem we had with the thing was the front wheel bearings. OEM, aftermarket, cheap, expensive, whatever those things were always making the ABS light come on.

No its front wheel drive. Tried to get it to do it in reverse did nothing. I am pretty sure it has something to do with my ABS system...it reminds me of a car trying to stop when you smash the brakes hard but its doing it when I try hitting the gas hard when I am going really slow or from a dead stop. ABS is on it was on when we bought it Thursday. Taking it to shop tomorrow or might just go to O'Reilly's and get them to run the diagnostics thing.

I doubt Oreallys code scanner will read ABS codes, I know AutoZone and Advance wont. at least the ones here wont.

OK took it to O'Reilly's its saying the right front speed sensor is bad which makes a LOT of sense...its got a shimmy when it drives and I would assume that being bad would make the tires not realize I am trying to drive and that makes it jerk the tires when I am trying to go...130$ to buy it and I can replace it myself just 3 bolts and a nut.
