What would cause a rattling sound in the front end of a 2000 Chevy Tahoe 1500 LT 2 wheel drive while it is moving?
there is a bulliten for the heat shield, or it could be the front converter Answer Check the plastic lug nut covers, I have fixed this problem on several trucks and Tahoes. It sounds like a loose shock, are shock bushing worn out Answer I would pay attention to when you hear the rattling. If …you are going over bumps or hit a pot hole or something and hear rattling that seems consistent with the way the vehicle travels over varying surfaces, it could be sway bar links. You can tell if they are shot by looking at them next to the wheel and noticing if the bushings are cracked, missing or messy from grease leaking out. They're pretty simple to change out if you have an impact wrench. If you do it by hand, start working out your upper body now so you can be prepared to muscle the nuts loose. Hope that helps! (MORE)
What would cause a strange noise on the front left hand side of a 2001 Fiat Punto that sounds like metal is rubbing on something?
Answer . \nIf it only happens when cornering the I would say that its a driveshaft - otherwise, more information is required. Answer . \nI had the exact same problem. It turned out that on the inside of the left front wheel, the brake shoe pin on the bottom was locked. This made the brake sho…e dig into the router. When the brakes were applied, the sound would subside because the brake shoe flattened out and went into a normal position. The answer is you need new brakes and routers. (MORE)
What would make the front end of your 97 expedition rattle when you drive it the sound seems to be coming from the front wheels?
Answer . \nIf you have 4 wheel drive, take off the center hub cap and look to see if there is a metal cap over the center wheel spindle. Mine was loose and would jingle every time I hit a bump. I just tried to crimp it a little tighter with a pair of pliers. Noise is gone...
My 2003 Accent 5 spd will squeal until you press the brake. The squeal is constant when there but it is not always there. Sounds like it it coming from the front driver side wheel.?
Squeal . The brake assembly probably needs to be cleaned and lubricated, take it to a brake shop where you can get a free inspection and see what they have to say about the wear on your pads, the cleaning and lube should not cost too much.
Whats that sound coming from under the hood of a car when you shut off a car engine after driving for a while and it sounds like tiny rocks hitting metal?
Answer . That is the metal of your exhaust system, most likely a heat shield contracting as it cools. As the metal heats up it expands and as it cools it contracts or becomes smaller so the sound you hear is the metal moving as it does this.
What would cause a 2003 Saturn Ion to make a very loud roaring sound when driving I replaced the two fron tires. One was worn pretty bad. Noise came right after a front end allingment?
It's your bearings. They get worn down after a while. I just had them replaced and it's now rolling smoothly. They're what your tires are attached to the axle's by. I.e. when you take your tire off, they're usually a copper-ish color. Sounds like an airplane, doesn't it? haha
If your 1991 Mercury Cougar makes a very loud sound such as a door hinge in bad need of lubrication when you turn your wheels and is not front wheel drive what needs lubricated?
Joints probably one of the ball joints in the front end. It might be past the point of simple lubrication now though, you may have to replace it. Have someone turn the wheel while you are under the car so you can track down where the sound is loudest and you will find the culprit. It could also be …that you just need to add power steering fluid to the car that can make a noise similar to what you are discribing. (MORE)
When you engage the 4 wheel drive in your 2002 trailblazer it doesnt work properly you can feel it as it switches sounds and feels like a thump and when driving you can hear it also feels very slugg?
Answer . I have had similar experiences with mine also. I have found that it helps alot to keep pressure off of transmission while it is switching over to 4WD. I may put it in Neutral, then drive to help it, or even let the vehicle roll a little bit until it is done changing to the 4WD. The s…lugishness I have felt also, 4WD should only be used in snowy, icey conditions on the road, or off roading. When you use the 4WD on dry paved roadways, you put alot of unnecessary pressure on your vehicle, especially on turns. Hope this helps. (MORE)
Answer . probably your neighbours cat is locked in the boot. ANSWER: LOL, Either that or one of the belts needs to be replaced.
How do you remove the brake rotor from a 1997 dodge neon The brakes sound like metal to metal but pads aren't bad. Turning wheel sounds like something in the front drivetrain. All help appreciated?
you go to a car shop and have them help you! in order to remove rotors from 97 dodge neon you have to remove the caliper mounting bracket (2 bolts on rear of steering knuckle). grinding noise might be a bad hub assembly check for play in both vertical and horizontal directions with the tire on.
Wobble and thumping sound in your 96 Integra GSR passenger front wheel It binds and makes a metallic clunkink or rattling noise when you spin it?
Answer . The first off-the-top-of-the-head diagnosis is that your wheel bearings have failed and are crumbling away.. or - it could be just small gravel & debris in your hub cap, but since you used the word 'wobble', I would check out the wheel bearing.... SOON.. And if it turns out that's it,… be sure to check/change the other side (left or right side of car) , too. (MORE)
Why over sudden bumps at low speeds does the front end of a 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII make a thunk sound from the two front wheels?
I would suspect you need new struts. Have you front suspension inspected. It sounds like the sway-bar end links are bad. If they've never been replaced, then thats where i'd start. I just did this to my 94
Why does your 2000 Chevy Impala hesitate when you first start driving it only happens for a few seconds a couple seconds after it has just been started. It sounds like it's going to die but doesn't.?
I am a mechanic and i am guessing that your carborater is plugged. *************************************************** You're joking, right? I'm not a mechanic, and I'm a girl, and even I know that a fuel injected car is lacking a carburetor. Your answer is insulting and rude. Quit trolling… around answer.com and find yourself a hobby. As a driver of a 2004 Chevy impala LS 3.8 (not supercharged), and a girl (non-mechanical), the first thing I would do is take your car to an autozone or parts retailer who will run a diagnostic on your car and tell you what codes come up. If you don't have a mechanic to ask, that is. The short answer is that it could be any number of things. I'm sorry I don't know more, but that should give you a start. Autozone runs the diagnostic for free, which is super nice of them. (MORE)
Your car sounds like a hamster running on his wheel while driving but doesnt make sound at idle or when slowing down to stop what's that noise?
Answer . First, remove the tires from the rims to see if a hamster got stuck in there when they were being put on. Then, check for any brake problems. Finally, if none of the above helped, check for damaged wheel bearings or driveshaft center bearings or differential bearings (or transfer c…ase on 4WD) until you find something that is not in good condition. Also note that hamsters (like chipmunks) make a high pitched squeal if you poke them in the nose with a pointed or blunted stick. On the road, you'll usually only get this noise from a Jeep. (MORE)
1990 wrangler and the front drive is clunking but only in four wheel mode It sounds like the front right wheel is engaging and disengaging?
For a couple years Jeep used a two piece axle on the passenger side. It is basically a vaccum operated fork that engages the two pieces. My guess is the operator is broken. You could rebuild it, get a new one or replace with a cable operated one from somebody like OX Lockers.
Same way it travels through air; each molecule vibrates the one next to it which then vibrates the one next to (the new it) and so-on.
What might be the likely source of a scraping sheet metal sound on the right front wheel assembly of a 2000 Nissan Xterra?
I also own a 2000 Nissan Xterra; and I've come accross the same problem......I solved this problem by removing the heat shield from the engine header. It was becoming rusty and loose. Hope this helps.
Is it normal to hear a sound like a click at the front end when you first drive at around 5-10 mph it sounds as if something is engaging and wondering what it is on a new car?
If this is a new car, then it's covered under warranty. You have something wrong - take it back and get it fixed, whatever it is.
Your 99 sportage is making a racheting sound in the front end after you take it out of four-wheel drive are your front hubs bad?
It could be that they are not disengaging.. Littlestown Lube & Brake Littlestown, PA 717-359-5022
What would cause a metal-to-metal grinding sound near the front end of a Ford Ranger not heard while idling?
This would be a front wheel bearing. This comes as an assembly /front wheel bearing hub assembly. Get this taken care of ASAP before the bearing fails
If your using a bass try using a pick and if not i dont know sorry.
1990 jeep wrangler knocks when in four wheel drive It sounds like it might be the front transfer case but not sure.?
The 1990 Jeep Wrangler can make a knocking sound when there is abad bearing in the transfer case. The vehicle should be repaired assoon as possible.
Why would a front drive shaft on a 2002 dodge 2500 truck make a clanking sound like metal on metal not in the u-joints but the middle of the drive shaft.?
The pivot ball joint has failed. It is located between the double U-joints at the transfer case end.
it is a personification, since wheel's don't squeal, a human characteristic, so much as squeak.
it's probably still stuck there=] and b/c there is metal that is inside all tires..
If you need more info, its a 2000 Accord coupe ex-l 4 cyl. It just started at about 95k miles.
Turn on the gain. There should be a button that's labeled "Channel Select" or something similar. Just press it and turn the gain knob up and you'll get plenty of distortion.
To some degree or another, yes. But it will also reflect some, and all this depends on the metal and the condition of its surface. Polished aluminum will reflect something like 98% of optical radiation. But if its scuffed up, not as much. Sound is reflected well of metal, but some will penetrate (be… carried through) the metal. There are a lot of variables here. (MORE)
Sounds like alternator is going bad even though it still may still hold a charge
squeal is a lose belt or one of the accessory will need to be replaced soon
Is viva la vida in full metal alchemist i think this because around 1 minute and 10 seconds it sounds fmaish?
i dout it there was probaly jst a song that sounds like viva la vida since the Japanese tend to steal American songs viva la vida by cold play is an almost exact rip off of joe satriani's if i could fly, see 'viva la vida, if i could fly' mash up
Could be your brakes. If you have drum brakes not disk brakes that sound will happen when your shoes are worn down to the rivets. Some of the hardware such as springs, may have came off as well, which will make the loose metal sound.
Why does dodge durango front end sound like it is rubbing or vibrating when turning at very slow speeds?
the reson why u hear that noise is because of your rear differential . limited slip unit. u should go to a mechanic and have the rear diferential service and inspected. if there is no metal chunks then have them reseal and replaced the fluid with a limited slip additive(very important). If there is …metal chunks in ur rear dif then you will have to replace your limited slip differential(very expensive overhaul)$1000.00-$2000.00. this noise can be heard if u turn the wheel all the way to one direction an drive in a circle 0-10 miles per hour. it actually makes the noise every time you turn but u just cant hear it because of vehicle speed/road noise. the noise is not coming from the front its definatley coming from the rear (MORE)
The velocity of sound in metal is 330m/s. This is due to the closely packed atoms in a metal i.e.,solid. -Rochish. email at email@example.com The number you mentioned is an approximate velocity of sound in AIR. In metals the sound travels much faster than that. The speed of sound in gases, liqu…ids, and solids is calculated from their density and bulk modulus (elastic properties of the media). The more dense is the media, the faster the sound travels. For example, the speed of sound in iron is 5130 m/s, in gold - 3240 m/s, in diamond - 12000 m/s. (MORE)
When driving my 2002 Windstar at slow speed there is a squealing sound from front tires and my abs light have been coming on?
You have a serious problem with the front suspension and need to get it inspected by a professional "straight-away"!
What would cause a metal on metal sound to come from driver front wheel And made worse when steering to the right?
Wheel/hub bearing assembly about to depart from your vehicle or your brake pads have worn down to zip.
metal is a good conductor of sound because it is solid & hence it has atoms very near & thus causes more vibration required for conducting sound.
Squealing or metal grinding sound coming from front right side of 2002 Nissan Maxima Does not always occur when braking Is this your brakes going?
Generally, squealing while NOT applying the brakes is the "chirper" or the metal tang rubbing the rotor. Typically, applying light pressure to the brake petal will make the squeal or chirping sound stop. This means your brake pad lining is thin and about to wear out. If you hear/feel a "scrubbing" …sound while applying the brakes, generally the lining has worn away enough that some of the backing plate of the brake pad is rubbing on your rotor... This is BAD! Changing brake pads on disc brakes is one of the easiest repairs you can make to your automobile. Most automotive parts stores have 'lifetime warranted' pads, so you buy them once and every replacement afterwards is free. Of course, your labor is not included... However, brakes are a safety issue and you are not mechanically inclined or little or no experience, please consult a qualified mechanic. (MORE)
What would cause a clunking or vibrating sound when tu Vibration or clunking sound in the front end which sounds like it comes from the steering wheel only while turning the vehicle?
you MIGHT put a little more effort into your question - details &H specifics never hurt. in a front wheel drive car, bad , loose CV joints clunk upon turning.
it sounds like led hey i don't know maybe its lead it has four letters
When you lock my jeep wrangler in four wheel drive theres a knocking sound in the front differential while in motion any clues of what it might be?
The Prop shaft (front drive shaft) has a ball type cv joint that sits in bearings that connects to the transfer case. This is most likely shot and you need a front prop shaft (front drive shaft) complete with rubber boot and differential cv universal joint.
It is merely a description of what the wheels sounded like, hence, neither personification nor simile.
If you have an old snapper riding mower and recently when you put it into reverse there was a squealing metal on metal sound that happened for awhile and now it is doing it in the forward speeds i?
The rubber around the outer edge of the driven disc is gone. You will need to get a replacement either OEM or aftermarket, stand the machine on the rear stand bars(remove battery if it is not sealed) and replace the disc. It is 1-0765 without lining and 5-7337 with lining.
What would cause the scrapping sound near driver side front tire only it's not the brake itself and the tire is fine but car squeeks and makes metal to metal scrapping sound at low speeds or braking?
If the brake pads are not worn out check the backing plate. It is the thin metal plate behind the brake rotor, sometimes it will get bent and rub on the brake rotor.
What causes the water pipes to produce a high pitched squealing sound a few seconds after the toilet has been flushed and the tank has refilled?
The high-pitched sounds you hear are the upper harmonics of water hammer, and flushing the toilet without adding enough toilet paper to absorb the squealing sound. Without toilet paper in the pipes, they will vibrate and possibly crack the solder in the pipe joints. If you really want to do yourself… a favor, wrap ALL the water pipe joints in high density foam rubber (HDFR - plumbing supply shops provide these in assorted colors to mark off different areas - kitchen, bathroom, garage, etc.).

What causes a very loud metal like pop periodically when wheels turn on your 2004 Lincoln aviator sound came after tire road like it was flat but really wasnt?
Look for wheel bearing ,front drive shaft ,front differential or if those three check out good , I would look at the transfer case.
Generally we take with sufficient accuracy the formula (equation) for the speed of sound in air c = 331.3 + 0.606 Ã Ïin m/s in m/s. Temperature Ï(theta) in degrees Celsius. You see the speed of sound changes with the temperature and therefore cannot be a constant.
Depends on whether it a cv axle or drive shaft on the front. Fords use drive shafts for a long time and when cutting the wheel deep it would bind up and make a loud bang
The first group of the periodic table contains the reactive alkali metals: lithium, sodium, potassium, rubidium, cesium, and francium.
When you are driving a 2003 Ford Escape you hear what sound like a rubbing sound coming from the front wheels and it is a constant noise except when you accelerate. How do you fix it?
Could be a wheel bearing or scalloped tires but you will have topin-point the source before you can fix it.
