Answer

I had an extrememly loud grinding soun under my hood one day when my car ran hot i new it was my water pump and i tried to get home and the car stalled out and would no longer start because it shredded the timing belt. I would have someone look at the water pump and the alternator.

AnswerRemove the fan belt and start the engine to eliminate alt,water pump. Can do the same for Power Steering to eliminate the pump. If you still have the noise, the noise is normally engine or trany. AnswerIf it's a grinding noise it can also be one of the bearings in your wheels. Don't take apart your engine just yet. :) AnswerI had this grinding or whirring noise when driving my 86 crx Honda hf model. The solution was replacing the berring in the front wheel hub. Upon inspection the hub itself did not need replacing only the berring. It now is free of the noise. AnswerI have a 2002 Chevy Cavalier and I also replaced the wheel hub bearing assembly. YOU CANNOT take the bearing out of the hub, it is an entire assembly.

i agree check the bearings first... you can do this your self by jacking up the front of the car so the tires a off the ground so you can move them. Once the tires are off the ground you grab the top and bottom of the tire and see if it has play in it ( try to move the tire top to bottom ) if you have play then you need to service your wheel barings or replace them

-your brakes can also make grinding or squealing noises but both at once would not be likely

ANSWER

I had mine just like that. and I remove the 2 belts, remove the water pump and put a new one and you can save the old coolant as long as you did not put it to the dirty pale. It's going to run just like normal again.

Troubleshoot squealing and grinding noise from 1995 Nissan Maximum?

Your question is vague, but since you used the words "squealing/grinding" I first start to look at the brakes. The squealing could be coming from your brake pads. Some brake pads come with a safety mechanism that alerts to when the brake pads are nearing replacement time. If you ignore that squealing then it turns to a grinding because there ain't no brake pad left. At this point, you're now looking at replacing the rotors as well as the pads. Rule of thumb is that if one side is bad then the other is just as bad or not far behind it.

What makes a grinding noise on a ford expedition when giving gas?

It could be a couple different things. Most obvious would be brakes. If a brake is sticking and worn you could be hearing a grinding noise as you accelerate. Second could be a driveline issue. Worn u-joints or something sticking in the transfercase (4X4) could also cause a grinding noise. Best advise is to find a reputable service shop and have them diagnose the noise properly. Good luck!
