Hey Greg==Need a bunch more information. What kind of car, what engine and where the squeeks seem to come from and when does it squeek. It is just too general to try to diagnoise.GoodluckJoe answer squeeking is most likely to be caused by dry bushings in your suspesion also dry rubber mounts on shck absorbers, and dirt on shock absorber shaft try spraying wd40 into all the rubber bushings etc that you can see. might try giving car a complete lube job,as dry balljoints etc will squeek
Usually it is the brakes that needs servicing.
Most people will tap the brakes of a car when their car is going downhill, usually to keep the car under the speed limit. The squeaking noise could be the brake rotors or the brake pads.Ê
Dirty brake pads could cause a car to make a squeaking noise when putting the car in gear or when releasing the brakes. Cleaning, sanding, or replacing the brake pads should make the sound stop.
When break pads begin to wear out they are designed to squeek to let the driver know that they are on their way out. When you hear squeeking during regular use of your brakes, it is time to think about having them inspected and/or replaced.
Check your brakes and CV joints
most likely the brakes, good place to start looking anyway
you might want to check the brakes and roters they might be broken or warped...that would be the my first guess...then you might check the alignment
common sense Listen for squeaking and feel for pulsating when braking. Too much of either and you should have them looked at.
this is usually the indicator that you need new brakes so dont worry just get them replaced problem solved
It depends. High quality brakes can last a very long time if you drive your car properly and do not rabbit drive. If they are squeaking, you should have them checked out.
There can be two possibilities. The first is your wheel bearing going bad. The second could be the drive axle wearing out.
Can you give more detail? Is it squeak, squeak, squeak or squeeeeeeek? I'm assuming that it only occurs when the car is moving. Does putting the brakes on make it change? --Ken It does make squeeeeek sound when car is moving and putting brakes on does change it.
Assuming I understand your question: The brakes are worn on one side because they are only or primarily working on that side. This should cause the car to pull toward that side when braking.
There are several things that may make your brakes squeal. The most common causes are a lack of lubrication and worn brake pads. Less common (and not all agree that it is a cause) is dust and grime in the brake system. The best thing to do is to take your car to a mechanic and have your brakes checked and make the necessary repairs.
If your car makes a squealing sound when you are turning it is because your brakes have worn out. When the brakes wear down below a certain point, a wire pops loose. That makes a squeaking sound.
An old belt getting wet. Get it changed out.
The positional sensor can produce squeaking in a car. The shocks can also cause squeaking in a suspension system of a car as well. Springs under the engine are known for this, too.
the brakes are the only thing between you aand the car you might hit,besides the car around you,you should check them regularly to avoid cossions,or minimise the damage,hitting a car at 75 can total both cars and cause injuries,using the brakes can minimise the injury or even PREVENT the crash
Could be brakes or if rear wheel drive could be a "U" joint going bad
A disc brake kit is used to convert an older automobile's drum brakes to disc brakes. Your 2001 Gallant already has disc brakes. It would not require the disc conversion kit. When you begin to hear your brakes squeaking it is time to take your car to the repair shop for new brake pads.
If you brakes are still squeaking after you change your brake pads in any car, you have a warped rotor. The squeaking is caused by the rotor vibrating when pressure is applied by the pads. The best way to permanently fix the problem is to replace your pads and your rotors at the same time. This can also cause accelerated wear on the new pads if you do not replace the rotors at the same time, or at least have them turned.
Typically, a knocking noise when to use your brakes in the car is caused by your brakes wearing down. This means you need to get them checked out and repaired.
Does the squeak stop when you apply brakes? If so could be wear sensors on brake pads indicating that they are worn and need replacing
