Ah, the fine Windstar!! Have two of them myself. Just took one off the road and did the head gaskets on the other. Started her up and was the Power Steering was noisy. It had been sitting awhile, not quite a year and I don't remember it that noisy. Its not too bad straight driving but turning those wheels lets everyone know who you are! I'm going to find out for myself if the pump can be rebuilt or have to get another one.
not sure sound like it comes from front suspension
Mine does. It makes a type of grinding sound and blues bubbles.
depends on where the grinding id coming from
A bad transmission. The sound is from metal grinding on eachother.
AnswerIt is time for a professional inspection to avoid spending more $$.I had a similar situation with brakes on a Windstar. Diagnosed it myself to be brakes - did fronts, still grinding - did the rears and guess what - was still grinding! Turned out to be rotors that did not show anything wrong, but was still the cause.Save money, time & frustration - get a pro involved. (you can still do the repair yourself.)Answerwhich one did you replace Spent $700 more and replace them all OR take it to a mechanic to actually fix it
The computer wants you arrested
The noise is the teeth on the flywheel grinding on the teeth of the starter. Check to see if the starter is loose, this is the most common cause of that noise.
click or click click.................. Or shick, shick cause it makes a little grinding sound Sound of a 12-gauge shotgun cocking, and loading a shell into the chamber-- Chh Chh.
Could be a bad started bendix or problems with the flywheel, or just a loose started.
The "awful grinding sound" might be a problem with your power steering
Usually it'll be a grinding sound.
A grinding sound / feel is most typically due to something related to the brakes. In my 2001's case, it was the rotor - even after changing the pads, it was still grinding. 2 new rotors and it was *smooth* sailing, and braking. Sidebar: bad wheel bearings usually create a very noticeable humming - like someone who doesn't know the words to the song...

I have a 1992 Chevy berretta 3.1 V6 and when it is in park and reverse and neutral it sounds like there is a grinding noise right below the shifter I know that the linkage needs adjusting any ideas
could be your crank shaft
Their engine battery and when the car is on makes a roaring sound when it is started
You re-engage the starter and you can damage the bendix, or the gear on the starter drive for the engine. It makes a grinding sound and will ruin the starter.
A physical vibration or movement, i.e. A speaker makes sound waves because of the movement of the cone or woofer.
possibly your wheel bearing is on its way out
Yes, the differential can make a grinding sound.
This could be your clutch pressure plate is worne..
the rubber bumpers are gone or worn out on the side motor mounts
I would guess that it is the wheel bearing. is it a grumbling sound or an all out grinding? If it is or was a grumbling sound and has turned into a grinding it is probably the wheel bearing.
If you vehicle is front-wheel drive, more than likely, that grinding crunching sound when you turn is coming from the CV joints.
hi i had this problem,it was a hard one to figure out...but we did,it was the cars drive shafts.the bearings had gone. Hope this helps
