What is the grinding noise you hear in your car when you first take off?
I had the same problem with my '93 Mercury Tracer. If you look under the hood, you should see the catalytic converter at the bottom, on top of that is a heat shield thing, just simple bend that back a bit, and it should fix the "Griding noise." At least, that's what I did to fix my problem.
Depends on the kind of grinding. The brakes may have been messed with, so you'll getting a constant grinding noise. If the noise is audible when you first turn the vehicle on and it not in motion, then you have other problems. If you only hear it while the vehicle is in motion, then you should take it back to the shop where you got your tires replaced.
2003 sonata 54200 miles when i go to 40mph off the pedal i hear noise from the engine sound like a turbine when i brake the pedal i heard grinding noise feel the car is pulling forward backward?
You at least need to take care of the brakes right away. The grinding probably means that the disk brake pad(s) are worn. The irregular braking action is caused by a warped rotor. The brake job will include resurfacing or replacing the rotor and should eliminate the problem. As for the turbin-like noise, I'd have to hear it.
Ford transmission slipping on take off and there is plenty of fluid. Also there is a grinding nosied upon accelration.?
Ive got a 1995 Audi 80 sports - when making a left-hand turn at slow speed you get a annoying grinding grunting noise which seems to come from the steering mechanism at the front of the car This noise?
Answer The sound you hear could be a Wheel Berring and if I were you the first chance you get I'd take the car into a garage for a check up. Today we tend to drive fast, the last thing you want to happen is to have a wheel fall off and that could happen if the problem you have is a bad wheel berring.
When i turn my steering wheel in my 2001 Monte Carlo ss i hear a popping noise as if something is loose or maybe grinding what is this its very annoying?
It might be your tie rods. Jack up the car and take off the front tires. The tie rod ends are located on the back of the hub assembly and shock housing. The inner tie rods are connected directly to the outer ends. Look at the rubber bushings on the ends to see if they are worn. Pull on the inner rod and outer end. Now, there will be subtle movement as the rod end…
My 98 mercury 4cyl makes a grinding noise at the front passenger side tire and i can't figure out what it is?
Your 1992 Ford Ranger truck 4.0 motor that makes a noise that sounds like metal grinding against metal The noise sounds like it is coming from your water pump If is so do I need to replace it or flush?
Remove the serpentine belt (make note of the routing, maybe even take a picture) then spin the water pump to see if any grinding noise comes from there. The idler pulleys and alternator are far more common for making that noise. All bearings should be turning smoothly when you turn them by hand. Any irregular resistance or even the slightest noise while you're turning it by hand will be converted to loud noise while the…
sounds like a cv shaft or a balljoint. or both. if you hear it mostly when you turning or taking sharp corners then it's more than likely the cv shaft. if it's mostly a clicking you hear and it happens when your going over a bumpy road then it's probaly a balljoint. but since your hearing a grinding too the it's most likely the cv shaft. pay attention to it next time your driving keeping…
* I take it you mean you hear some sort of hissing sound, and it may or may not be when you first turn your car on you get the noise. It might be your radiator plug that has a leak in it. But it could also be the exaust system and/or catalytic converter is plugged. If it's neither of those though, you might want to check your tire just in case.
What is wrong with 1999 Alero-makes a low groaning grinding noise from the front right when driving?
Take the belt off and spin the alternator by hand. If you hear a grinding noise, like sand rubbing on metal, its probably going bad. Also try to wiggle the pulley up/down/left/right. If it wiggles, the bearings are going bad. Of coarse you can always wait until they get so bad they shatter and the alternator wont spin at all, like i did. :(
94 Z28 Camaro has a grinding noise when you turn the wheel to the left when its in drive and im not hitting the brakes any answers?
The only noise I can remember hearing from a hamster is the spinning of the wheel. Although it may not be uncommon to hear a slight squealing occasionally. I found this info about hamster noises: "Sometimes you will hear a single small squeak. We believe that the hamster is calling to another hamster in the hamstery, but a lone hamster is still know to make this noise. Also you may hear a 'terrible squealing when…
What is wrong if you ABS service engine light and trac off lights are on Also here a grinding or rubbing noise when I am driving. My brakes and rotors were just done...?
Take the car back to the ser vicer and have them fix what they broke. It sounds like they fitted the wrong parts. The rotors then damaged the wheel speed sensors (that's the rubbing you hear) and caused the ABS system to indicate a failure. If you paid by credit card you may have leverage with the shop.
What makes a constant grinding noise while driving on the drivers side coming from up past the CV joint on a 99 Alero?
check for worn out brakes check the wheel bearing - if it's a constant grinding noise, it is probably the bearing. New ones cost around $100 or so from an auto parts store. You can change it yourself if you have some skill, and you can actually do the change without removing the whole spindle assembly - the bearing is attached to the spindle by 3 bolts on the engine side of the spindle. Remember…

It scares them. When they hear you hiccup they think of it as a sign that you are angry with them or don't want to be around them. They hear a wierd noise and they get scared. Also, dogs can sense when something is happening and they take it the wrong way. Many dogs that get hiccups also hide themselves.

If you take the wheel off, and free spin the axle. Listen for noise, any crunchy or grinding sounds from the bearing are bad. Helps if you get astethoscope for this one, lessens the chances of you hearing something else making noise. Sometimes if the bearings are about to shear off the axle you will hear them while driving down the road. This is generally bad as it means that either one or more bearings…
