Noises have to be heard to be correctly diagnoised. Check the motor mounts to see if they are broken.

The grinding noise in the front of a 1990 Dodge Caravan could be a cv joint. If it is, it probably only grinds when you take a sharp turn. There is one located on each side.

If the grinding sound seems to be coming from the speedometer and grinds faster as your speed increases, the likely cause is the speedometer cable. At least some 1990 Dodge trucks (mine) have electric speedometers Len

Get your car to a garage immediately! No car should be making any grinding noises while driving. this may suggest a slipping clutch, faulty brakes or maybe even damage to the piston and combustion chambers. it could be either of them which is why this needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

Could be a number of things. Is the noise coming from your transmission, your rear differential, one of the wheels? From the wheels it could be a warped rotor or a wheel bearing failing.

check the guard behind the rotors could be rubbing

Is it from the wheel? If so, then it could be numerous of things: worn hub bearings, worn brake pads/shoes/rotor, faulty drive axle...listen carefully and take you car to a certified mechanic!

you need to have the engine tuned on a machine by the mechanic, the timing could need reset. Also, Dodge Magnums have an anti-slip mechanism which if engaged, cause this sort of lag. There's a button on the dash you can disable this feature with.

could be a center support bearing or a bad engine mount. i would check those first.

Could be in need of a tune up. Replace spark plugs, wires, air and fuel filters.

it could be a few things. Could have bad berrings, breaks could be sticking.. I would take it to someone and have it checked. Don't want a stuck caliper (spelling) and your tire lock up.

Headbanging can cause serious brain damage with prolonged use. I would believe it could.

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.

Check for a broken motor mount or transmission could be going bad.

Many problems could cause the car to stop accelerating. If the engine is running OK, then check a manual transmission for clutch problems, and an automatic transmission for possible slipping bands.

look to see if your intake manifold is gummed up with residue
