It means that something is wrong. Check all your moving parts in that wheel.

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer and I was told about a grinding noise before I bought it. He told me that it was because it needs a new wheel baring. * If the vehicle is standing in place and the wheel is turned and there is a noise it could mean you need to add power steering fluid to the unit.

I am not sure what you mean by "cranking" noise. My guess is a bad wheel bearing. A loose wheel makes a noise especially if the some of the bolts have fallen out and are rolling around in the wheel cover.

We would need to know where the noise was coming from and under what conditions it made the noise in order to make an assessment.

Wheel shaking under braking can be caused by a warped rotor. A grinding noise when you turn can be a bad wheel bearing or worn brake pads. Either way you need to have your brakes and wheel bearings inspected immediately. This can be very dangerous. Any decent mechanic can find the problem and repair it.

Assuming it is front wheel or 4 wheel drive, it is worn CV or Constant Velocity Joints. :o)

If you mean a "GRINDING" noise - then it sounds like the constant velocity joint (CV joint) may be failing -OR- if it only happens when you apply the brakes - the brake pad(s) need replacing.

A 2003 Lexus with an intermittent grinding noise might mean that there is a tire rim rubbing on the brake disk. It could also mean that a tire is rubbing on a fender wall when turning.

The brake pads are worn out and need to be replaced. The grinding sound means your brakes are about to stop working.

A universal joint or a CV joint may be bad. It means you should have it check before the car leaves you stranded.

Check or have them checked immediatley. They are going to fail REAL soon.

If its slipping you will smell it. If it shutters you probably have grease spots on your fly wheel. Grinding noise may mean you need a new pilot bearing(throughout bearing).

Brakes could be bad, or wheel bearings too, des happen when u apply th brakes or just when is rolling? either way answer is probably around the tires

It means to make a noise that a Guinea pig makes. Or even more, the noise that a pig pig makes.

grinding means the bearings inside steering column are worn out go to a steering column specialist to have them replaced if you leave it to long, you will also need new shaft in column, then the cost will go up by about 400 bucks

I am assuming by rotor bearing you mean a wheel bearing, to see if a wheel bearing is bad there are two was to do this, first is to move the wheel in a up and down motion (with your hands) and see if there is any play, the other way (if it is the front wheel bearings this will only worth with an awd or fwd vehicle) you can lift the car and put it in drive and listen for any noise coming from the bearing itself, you may need a pair of electronic ears or a stethoscope to do this, if there is a grinding or rumbling noise at all, you have yourself a bad wheel bearing

Dreams of grinding noise could signal "bruxism" or grinding one's teeth while asleep. This habit can damage teeth and lead to headache and jaw pain, so it should be treated by a dentist. However, dreams should NEVER intrude into one's waking, conscious thoughts. Such are not dreams but delusions, and require medical attention. Furthermore, the grinding noise might not be a dream at all, but a physical condition of the jaw, neck, sinus or inner ear. Please seek medical advice.

the crunching noise simply mean that the guinea pig (pigs) are happy and enjoying whatever they ar doing

It been my experience that a loud noise when stating a car, grinding may mean the starter is not in right or on it's way out as in replacement. It's quite likely that one of the mounting bolts that attach the starter to the engine has broken and the remaining bolt(s) are bent, as a result. The bolts should all be replaced ASAP. This is not an expensive repair.
