Why does your car make a clunking or grinding not squeeling sound when you apply high pressure to the brakes?

it could be a number of things but it depends i dont know what it sounds like but it could be your break or cb halfshaft Brake pads worn out. Metal to metal contact. Inspect brake pads, asap.

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

Excessive pressure needed to stop Grinding or scraping sound when brakes are applied Vehicle pulls to one side when stopping

Your pads or discs are worn. The brakes will fail soon if not replaced.

your brakes are about to give out... you should go to wal-mart and have them replace them

If you suspect something, get them checked. If you get vibration while applying the brakes, get them checked. If you get grinding noise from the brakes, get them checked.

If you are driving and you hear a high pitch squeeling/screaching sound but when you apply the brakes the sound stops your brakes need replacing, this is called your brake squeeler.

User Avatar

no, that sounds like the brakes are grinding because the are ready to be changed, check them out immediately.

Have your brakes checked, rust or wear on brakes can cause grinding when turning.

Brakes are designed in such a way as to give off a loud squeel when they are coming to the end of their useful life. If your brakes are squeeling loudly and have been for a while it is a good idea to make plans to look at them.

What would cause a grinding noise after a tire is replaced and the brakes are not worn?

Check your brakes(pads and rotors)

A grinding, snapping or dragging sound coming from breaks can be a sign that new breaks need to be put on. if the brake pads have been used after being worn out the rotors can become grooved and even warpedI have a 1995 f150 and I had a grinding noise and it was the front wheel bearings. not a hard job if you have the manual for the truck and bearings are fairly cheap. if it's more of a squeeling then it's the answer above.

in VW's when you have the breaks adjusted out too far they tend to grab when reversing. There is an auto adjuster in the rear drum to keep your rear brakes adjusting. If the brakes are worn out they will "hang up" after reverse and cause squeeling.

Could be, in need of brakes or wheel bearing failure,

Normally a rusty rotor would not make a grinding noise. A grinding noise from the brakes usually indicated that the pads or shoes are worn down.

A clunking noise, when you put your car into gear, is most likely caused by a bad u-joint. A problem in the transmission can also cause the noise.

If your brakes are grinding at all, you need to inspect the brake pads. I suspect you will find your pads are worn out.

Possibly a worn engine and/or gearbox mounting or exhaust mounting

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.

There are a number of signs. If you have disc brakes, there is a metal "wear strip" that begins to squeal as a warning that the discs are close to being worn out. Of couse, if you notice difficulty in bringing the car to a stop, that is a sure sign that it should be looked at by a mechanic. The brakes should not be allowed to get to the point that they make a grinding noise when applied. That will damage either the brake rotor or the brake drum, depending on the make of car, and can add considerable additional cost. The wear parts on disc brakes can be replaced fairly easily and inexpensively, if they are replaced before damage is done to the rotor. The rotoris the round shiney thing you can seeinbehindthe wheel on some cars. Again, depending on the kind of car, the symptoms of brake wear are noise, squeeling, then grinding, and if the wear has gotten excessive, the car will pull to one side with a grinding noise. Hope this helps. The longer you let it go, the more it will cost.

No, they use air pressure or actually the lack of air pressure to stop the vehicle. The brakes are fully on until pressure builds up in the tank releasing the brakes. When you push the brake pedal this removes air from the system and applies the brakes.
