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 to take off the axle nut first, so that the bearing can just slide off of it. And also remember to disconnect the ABS sensor - and reconnect it when done.
Its hard to say... do u know where the noise is coming from?
depends on where the grinding id coming from
It depends on where the grinding noise is coming from. Most of the time the grinding is coming from the brakes and the brake pads need to be replaced. If they've been grinding for a while, the rotors will need to be resurfaced or replaced. Other possibilities for grinding are worn axle bearings, or a problem with the clutch. If the clutch goes out, there will be a grinding noise when you try to shift gears.
sounds like the brake pads in front or back are worn out, if so need to change them before driving.
lower ball joints need lubed up or probably replaced.
Defective left front wheel bearing. Have this repaired ASAP, as it can cause an accident.
Brake pads are worn out=========Replace.
Without more detail, my first guess would be that you have worn down your break pad to the metal on the side that is grinding. What your hearing is the metal from the pad grinding on the rotor. If this is the case then you may hear it get worse when you apply pressure to the breaks. You will want to replace the pads on "both" sides of the car and you might need to replace the rotor or have the rotor turned that is on the grinding sound side ASAP.
When driving the railroad arms will lower indicating a train is coming. However, the conductor will also alert drivers or passerby's by sounding the horn also.
If the noise changes pitch under acceleration and deacceleration I would suspect the carrier bearings or pinion bearings are shot. If there is no change under acceleration or deacceleration I would suspect an alxe bearing is shot.
Your clutch throw-out bearing may need replaced.
a concret beam or slab that seperates drivers coming towards other drivers
Perhaps a pebble got stuck in either cv joint or in behind brake caliper
Bearing going bad?
its coming from the front end from the wheels we thought it was the wheel bearing
The coming of GOD'S KINGDOM was a constant theme of Jesus' preaching.
Check if muffler is loose, check if rear brakes are worn out & grinding
There was smoke when you stopped - this smoke was coming from the brakes, the engine or the exhaust? What color was the smoke? Please be more specific. Costs of repairs vary way too much to be quoted in a forum such as this - depends on regions, the shop, the cost of parts, the availability of parts. If you need a direct estimate, take this car to the Daewoo people - they built it, let them fix it.
If you vehicle is front-wheel drive, more than likely, that grinding crunching sound when you turn is coming from the CV joints.
i have a grinding noise on the front left wheel. i have taken the calipa off and i have one brake pad that is shot. could it be that or can it still be the bearing. how can i find out.
The calls were coming in constantly.
NO It takes time and practice to learn how to be a good driver. This Parent-Teen Driving Guide is a tool to help parents observe and instruct their teen drivers during the instruction permit phase of licensing. Teens must log a minimum 50 hours of practice driving, including 10 hours at night, with their parents or a responsible adult age 21 or older before obtaining a driver's license. This booklet also outlines the provisions of Illinois' Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) Program, which has become a national model for teen driver safety. The GDL program increases driving privileges for safe and responsible drivers in stages, while identifying those drivers who display dangerous or reckless driving habits. Safe teen drivers will gradually see their driving restrictions ease as they move from one licensing phase to the next. Distracted driving continues to be a serious hazard on Illinois' roadways, especially with regard to young drivers. Cell phone use is prohibited for drivers under age 19, and texting while driving is prohibited for all drivers regardless of age. Parental involvement is a critical component of any successful GDL Program. Working together we can ensure that our newest, youngest drivers are well prepared to enjoy a lifetime of safe and responsible driving. Jesse White Secretary of State
The grinding noise is the brakes pads proably the noise is in the front. The front brake pads are easy to replace and is a do it yourself sort of thing. My guess is your brake light is coming on because of this condition. I assume your brake light has been coming on for a little while now.
If it happens right when you are stopping or coming to a slow stop, it is probably your discs cutting into your rear rotors. You need to get them replaced ASAP.
