Cause you don't know how to drive
A bad transmission. The sound is from metal grinding on eachother.
Perhaps an out of balance wheel. If this is the cause it will be worse at a certain speed.
If its front wheel drive possibly an axle.
The rear of a Ford Explorer may have a grinding noise when driving, because the muffler may have came loose. The u joint may also be loose and cause a grinding noise.
if its a front wheel drive vehicle then it could be the axels
Bad wheel bearing or defective brake pads.
Sounds like you need a new drive shaft (Sometimes also called CV joint)
It's not the driveshaft. You have a bad transmission.
i have a 95 Chevy astro van.what would cause the all wheel drive to work sometimes but not all the time?
It would be good if you stated what kind of car and trans you have. It can be either engine or trans mounts especially if it is front wheel drive. Have it checked out. GoodluckJoe
It will cause both vibration and a knocking noise The vibration may feel like it is at the rear of of the SUV but be careful to have the drive shaft checked.
Check your power steering fliud, if it is low this could cause the vibration you are feeling.
If the drive still works it is most likely early stages of the spindle bearings failing. This cannot be fixed, copy the contents to a different drive ASAP. If the drive no longer works one possibility is a crashed head dragging on its platter.
I have a 2003, I got my brakes re done like 2 weeks ago, and then it started grinding loudly and thumping, turns out I have to get a new drive shaft.
Not recommended can seize or break cause injury to you and other motorist.Also the more it is driven the more other parts may be damaged.
check the drive axles they could be bad
Tires or wheels out of balance? Bent wheel? Bent axle? Drive shaft out of balance? Frozen brake caliper?
Check your brakes(pads and rotors)
Either the Hard Drive spinning or a fan.
Sometimes it can cause snowfalls and you can get stuck in one but sometimes snow can help like if you drive a snow plow and get paid for it.
Either you tire is rubbing or if its a front wheel drive it could be you "CV" axle's... Other than that i don't know i hope that helps?
You may very likely have bent the thin metal backing plate behind the brake rotor. That will cause the backing plate to rub against the rotor and make an awful grinding noise. Its not too hard to reform the backing plate away from the rotor.
Possible bad motor mount
hi i had this problem,it was a hard one to figure out...but we did,it was the cars drive shafts.the bearings had gone. Hope this helps
