Yes, it may also need power steering fluid. You need someone that is a shade tree mechanic to check it out. Yes, it may also need power steering fluid. You need someone that is a shade tree mechanic to check it out.

A grinding noise when braking can occur when the brake pads are going bad. You are hearing the brake grinding on the metal discs.

A lot of times the grinding sound that is heard when going over bumps is actually the car scraping the cement. If it is not a serious problem then the best thing to do would be to drive slow over the bumps.

To stop a standard transmission from grinding into third gear, check the level of the transmission fluid. If the noise continues, consult a mechanic.

The bearings on the alternator could be going bad. Remove the belt from the alternator then spin the alternator by hand to listen for grinding.

Unless the speed of the gears are in sync, it's going to be a grinding shift.

Sorry to tell you this but you have another suspension problem. It sounds like a part is probably loose. Have a AAA shop check this out.
