2002 bravada makes what appears to me a grinding noise when ex or drive real slow forward an in reverse coming from the rear

Answers :

That noise could be a lot of things. a bad wheel bearing, a bad u-joint makes many different noises. bad bearings in the rear-end itself. the backing plates directly behind the wheels could be rotting out and crumbling. that is all wheel drive and takes a special fluid in the transfer case. if the correct fluid isn't used it will chatter bad. the special fluid is available from g.m. only and is called "autotrac-fluid".
\015\012you may need to have to have it professionally diagnosed to save from replacing a lot of parts that aren't going to fix it. Good Luck..........Scott

My 2006 suzuki forenza after driving a few miles, makes a loud ''humming/buzzing'' noise from the rear of the car. it slows when you let off the throttle or brake. when you shut the car off, sometimes it makes a ''rattle'' that lasts up to a minute coming from what sounds like behind the rear driver side tire. is this signs my fuel pump is failing?


If your fuel pump was failing you would have engine problems the supply of fuel would be interupted, I would guess that you have a wheel bearing that is worn out you can check this yourself by jacking the rear of the car up wheel off the ground one ... 2006 Suzuki Forenza

I have a 2007 Infiniti M35X (AWD) with 90k miles. It has been making a "clicking noise" from the rear everytime I pull out of a parking spot or a red light (when I start driving slow). It goes away in the act of driving. Could this be the rear axle? Also there is a sandpaper like sound coming from under the hood on the driver side near the brake fluid, every couple of minutes. What could this be? Thank you.

1998 Jeep Cherokee Classic;165,000 miles. Check engine light comes on sporadically. Been told catalytic converter is trashed. Sometimes starts great; sometimes hard start. "Belches/burps/chugs" -- when idling (red light, stop sign, drive-up at bank) feels like it wants to 'go' and makes that sound like if I took my foot off the brake it would **** forward. Also rear end continues to make strange noises after engine is shut down.


Did you know Jeep did a recall and paid for replacement of catalytic converters on 1996 models (don't know about any others) - they reimbursed me for work done, up to a point - hope this helps! ... 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Took my 2003 volvo xc90 for service two weeks ago. Came back with a creaking / crunching noise in left front wheel and a knocking sound in right rear area. Very audible at take off & slow speed, reversing, going over humps, turning. Taken it back to workshop several times & apparently the mechanics can't hear what I'm hearing! Are they deaf?! Driving me nuts. And making me feel it is not safe to drive the car.

My 2003 mountaineer when I drive in reverse and turn will come to a stop if I don't really push on the gas. I have had the wheel bearings changed and the rear clutch fluid drained - that did not work - then had the rear clutch changed with a used one for $1,700. It also happens when I turn sharp going forward in a parking lot. Feels like the wheels are catching. Any ideas? Is this a saftey issue? Thanks, Matt

4 WD High and 4WD Low lights blink at the same time (6 times, then off; then 6 times, then off, etc.). The problem seems to begin when I run in reverse, then put it in drive. It appears that the transmission is stuck, it grinds some and then "pops" loose. The vehicle will go forward, but I can't tell if it is in 4 WD drive after that. Often times the 4WD High light won't come when I turn the switch, even if it is driven for a while. Turning the vehicle off and then on again seems to cure the

I have a 2005 ford mustang (automatic) and whenever i come to a sudden stop..my car will not move forward imediately when i give it gas. When it finally does move, it kind of jumps forward.

Its possible that the problem could be in the transfeer case. you didnt state which 4x4 unit is in the jeep.... there were 3 types, one was all wheel drive full time with a low gear selector, the 2nd was a part time 4x4 manual shift with a low range ... 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

We have a Golf TDI 2005 - bought in New Zealand. The car has had two episodes of having a loud 'spronging' noise start, then stop. It sounds like like something repeatedly banging on a hollow pipe while the car is moving. It sounds as though it is coming from a rear wheel and started when we went over a bump, then stopped when we went over some railway lines. The banging is loud inside and outside of the car, and it repeatedly 'bangs' and the car drives along - in forward and in reverse. The se

My father is experiencing a squeaking noise coming from the rear left wheel area (only in forward, not in reverse). Could this be a brake pad indicator? He has a 2000 Bravada


It will more than likely be the brake pad indicator as you mentioned. The only other noise would be griding and that would be indicative of a bearig or metal to metal on brakes. ... 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada

I own a 1998 mercury mystique 2.4 liter. The passenger right side makes a strange clacking/griding noise. Does not happen when driving in reverse. Checked the pads and rotors and they appear fine. Noise seems to come from the rod attached to the tire. Is this possible and what could it possibly be.


This only happens when you turn to the right or left correct? Unless it is really bad. I believe we are looking at the CV joints. I am assuming this is a front wheel drive? Have someone ride with you and then find an open parking lot like the school ... 1998 Mercury Mystique
