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
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.
When it is time to change the brakes on your 2001 Mitsubishi Montero, they will make noises. There could be a grinding or squealing noise that you will hear.
More likely the bearings in your alternator wearing out. Get a new alternator.
You need to lubricate and clean it.
What would cause a grinding noise after a tire is replaced and the brakes are not worn?
A worn belt will cause a squealing noise. The squealing noise is caused when the belt slips. Tightening the belt will temporarily fix the problem.
A defective CV joint will make a grinding noise when you turn the steering will. A bad strut can also cause a grinding noise.
Yes.Equally likely is if the belt is much more than 3-4 years, the material is glazing over or hardening, which is another common cause of squealing.
A worn front wheel bearing could cause a Grand Cherokee Limited to make a grinding noise when you accelerate. There could also be a problem with one of the shafts.
it could be that your brakes are dirty or that you need new pads
A 2000 Chevrolet automobile grinding noise can be caused by several things. The most common cause of a grinding noise is worn brake pads.
A bad starter might make a noise. The starter could also go bad with no noise or warning. However if the starter is making noise then there is a problem that could cause failure at any time
you probly have a belt slipping, a can of belt dressing should stop the sound
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.
The most common cause is slipping belt
That is the sound of metal on metal. I suggest you immediately take your car to a mechanic and have the brake pads replaced before you cause too much damage to the discs.
have it checked you could have bent the axle and the noise would be the bearing
Normally a rusty rotor would not make a grinding noise. A grinding noise from the brakes usually indicated that the pads or shoes are worn down.
Check the belts. The most common cause of squealing is a worn or loose belt on the front of the engine.
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!
No! Something is wrong.
Look to the alt. belt. It may squeal under load.
You need to be a little more specific about the noise around the belt. I would suggest you check out the serpentine belt as it could be failing. If it is a grinding or squealing noise it could be a failing bearing in one of the units the belt powers. I hope this is of some help, if not ask again with more information.
Loose or worn belt(s).
check a/c compressor and belt.
could be a wheel bearing...or just that its a french car
