2002 Ponitac Grand Am, loud knocking noise in the front drivers side area, when decellerating. We bought the Grand Am brand new, and ithas never gives us any major problems, minor things like the automatic windows breaking down. But it looks good still and has run good. Low milage on it. About 4 days ago this sound started (we changed the brakes 1-2 weeks ago). It is a loud knocking or rubbing sound, almost a rattling. It seems to do it when decellerating, and having the brake on makes no differ


Not a wheel bearing - probably not a CV joint. Could be something inside the transaxle. Is it possible something came loose in the caliper-rotor area ? ... 2002 Pontiac Grand Am

In my 2004 vibe, there is a noise coming out of the front end that sounds like a roaring sound. Put new tires on and it still persisted. Changed both front wheel bearings and it is still there. The cv axle boots are good and do not sound rough when rotated. The passenger side axle seems to have some excessive play where it enters the transmission. Any ideas about this problem?

My toyota 2001 rav 4 makes rubbing sound only when i step on the brakes, thought it was the front brake early indicator, so changed front brakes..they needed it! But still makes the noise..sounds like it's coming from the rear of the car, it's 2WD not 4WD also have check out all the tires twice! could it be the rear brakes...have never had them replaced?


Yes, this will be the rear brakes. Most of these are the same design as the front and are as easy to replace. You should always change all the front and back brakes at the same time, as it will affect braking and handling.\015\012\015\0 ... 2001 Toyota RAV4

Growling noise from front of my taurus while driving, it also makes a whining noise when i steer hard left. i had the right front wheel bearing changed but the noise's are still there. also the inner cv joint on right front is pretty loose like i can wobble it with my hand-could this be the source of my noise's? i was told that the inner cv joint has lots of play. but this much? also left inner cv joint i can just barely move it. could left wheel bearing sound like this and if so can the sound t


Cv joints will usually pop when they are worn out. I would suspect that its the powersteering, check the pumps fluid level and the tension on the belt.\015\012good luck dont forget to rate ... 1997 Ford Taurus

Humming noise sounds like from the front end. I just replaced wheel hubs and still making noise. The tone of the humming changes with slight on off the gas pedal.

Noise tone also changes when turning to the left.

1995 Ford Bronco 4x4. Has howl (metal on metal noise) in left front hub area. I have pulled hubs apart and checked bearings, they looked good, but were loose and the grease was thin like liquid.

It starts In 3rd and when in 5th while still accelerating, a noise which sounds like it's coming from drivers front side, the best I can describe it is it sound like a commercial paint shaker shaking a gallon of paint. After getting up to speed it quits...slightest throttle you hear it. When breaking or down shifting no sound. Sudden turn or swerve to the left makes it louder. Does anybody know what this could be? Drivers side drive axle was sloppy and replaced didn't help problem.


Noises from axles can be really deceiving. The sound is transfered throuh the transaxle and can resonate through the entire vehicle. The turning to the left thing makes it sound like a problem in the right wheel/axle area. Wheel beari ... 1997 Geo Metro
