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 engine is running.
depends on where the grinding id coming from
If it's coming out of a crimp joint, replace it. If it comes from a removable connection, replace the "o" rings. Glenn
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.
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.
it is coming out in 2039
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.
The ratchet winding noise on the Ranger 4x4 could be a wheel bearing or brake issue. There could also be problems in the front differential. Check all three for any problems.The 1998 Ranger noise is most likely coming from a brake grinding against a rotor, or a bad wheel bearing. Either of these can cause serious problems if left unchecked.
It has already come out.
No all the past rangers are not coming back in RPM but in 2013 mega force they might
i know when the power ranger ninja storm is coming because i rub my butt with soggy paper towels. power rangers suck.
Brake pads are worn out=========Replace.
March 20th in JPN
Chances are one of the pads was not mounted properly, causing it to slip out of place and grind against the rotor. Remove the tire in which the grinding is coming from. Check pad placement. If they are indeed aligned properly, maybe try having your rotors machined. Hope this helps. ~Trina~
Bearing going bad?
its coming from the front end from the wheels we thought it was the wheel bearing
There's "Pokemon Ranger: Tracks of Light" due to be released 2010
brake pads are worn to the metal rivets. You will need to replace pads and rotors. rotors are $35 each and pads are $29-59 for both left and right side.
Check if muffler is loose, check if rear brakes are worn out & grinding
IT could be a faulty transmission or the belt could be grinding up against an unknown source. = )
In fall 2010
Replace clutch master cylinder and bleed system,also check your slave cylinder for leaks.its bolted to your transmission,the clutch cable is connected to it.
Its hard to say... do u know where the noise is coming from?
If you vehicle is front-wheel drive, more than likely, that grinding crunching sound when you turn is coming from the CV joints.
