When i turn sharp while reversing (out of the drive way) the front end makes a very loud noise, sort of like a rubbing or something grabbing.

If you are turing sharp, your tires may be rubbing. a way to check is turn your tires all the way to one side and look under on both sides and then turn them the other way and do the same thing. while you are looking under the vehicle look for any ... 2000 Ford Explorer

Have a 04 dodge with a driver side grinding noise that comes and goes. It started after I got my truck stuck in the snow. I thawed out the front end last night, and now its worse. It comes and goes while going down the highway. Sounds like something loose and grinding on the hub. Also in 4x4 it makes a clicking noise like a CV joint. Would a CV joint make a grinding noise that comes and goes?


C V Joints can make a lot of noises. Sounds to me like you either bent the inner fender or if it is plastic you may have pulled it loose and it looks normal but it is just sitting in place with the push pins out of their intended holes. When you turn ... Dodge Ram 1500

I have a 2001 Silhouette. I have a noise in the front end that sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. It increases in loudness with speed. At low speed it can't be heard at all but at around 50 to 60 it becomes audible and at around 80 it's very irritating. If I make a right turn it stops and is audible either straight ahead or in a left turn. I can't tell which side the noise is coming from as I sit in the car. Do you think it could be something other than a wheel bearing?


I have a 2002 Olds van and it also makes a noise under the front driver wheel well. Mine was mostly when I hit potholes or large dips causing the shocks to compress. The problem is a metal to metal contact between a bushing lip and the suspension. ... 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette

You could have a loose bolt on your exhaust manifold (this happens sometimes with Japanese cars with little reason behind it). If you can, try tightening all of the bolts on the manifold and see if that helps. If you are not very mechanically incli ... 2003 Honda Civic

I have a 2004 pacifica, fwd. I had just gotton my front brakes and rotors done, as well as all tie rods. I am still a wierd knocking noise in the front end (sounds like the right wheel well mostly) Almost like something is loose? Now the noise was there before the work was done as i thought it was something to do with the tie rods, etc. Is there anything else this could be?

I had front brakes and rotors replaced on my 2000 Durango. Within a week I heard something like a grind coming from the right front tire. And tonight I heard the same noise when braking but it was much louder. When I accelerated after a red light I heard a loud bang from that same tire like something was thrown. The truck runs fine with no grinding noise and it drives straight with no pull to either side. What could have been that noiose. I live on Long Island.


Sounds like something was jammed, or loose. I'd recommend taking it back to where the brakes were done and have them check it out in case something they did is messed up. ... 2000 Dodge Durango

ABS light & trak off light keep coming on. Grinding noise & vibration can be felt on brake peddle. Brakes have been checked. Wheel bearing was replaced on drivers side. Sometimes making a pulsing sound,in front end left side, like something is trying to run.


It sounds like "False Antilock Mode" to me. Your Antilock Brake Control Module "thinks" that you have a wheel locking up. This is probably caused by a bad wheel sensor. You need to scan the module to find out which one. ... 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix

Wierd noise from the front end. sounds like a chain dragging or something. now the 4 wheel drive seems to be not working. any ideas?


Not sure about the 4wheel drive. But the weird sound could be your sway bar end links. Those tend to make a ton of noise when bad. To check: grab a hold of it and move it around, shouldn't have much play at all. If there is play in there replace ... 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

I have a 2004 MDX w/nav. it has 12100. miles on it. For the past month it has been making a strange noise indermently around 35mph to 45mph.

When backing up and turning the wheel to the left feels like the front end drops there is no noise it feels almost like a hard staright wind blowing across the front end. I have had the front right wheel hub assembly replaced the rack pinion catalytic convertor fuel pump and lastly a new engine 11000 miles ago. The car has 76000 miles.

2006 f 150 4x4 hub noise front. I notice a noise coming from the front. I thought it was the tires whichj are new but it could be something else. Sounds like a hum but not sure. This hum can be felt when driving. Are their bearings involved? what could be causing the noise. The balljoints, a tie rods are all ok. there is no known liquids to be concerned with like brake fluid etc. What is the problem?


They now have a bearing assembly, you replace the unit as one. The humming sounds like a Blazer I did last week. Same noise/humming over 25MPH..? Sounds just like road/tire noise. Hope this helps. ... 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

My 2004 Toyota Sienna has a rumbling, almost like something is loose, sound coming from the front left as I go over uneven road, it's almost constant now. I've had new tires put on, wheel alignment completed, new break pads, and a technician look at the struts. They said the struts look OK for now and the front end is "solid." They couldn't pin point the problem sound, but think it might be the strut mounts. Does this sound like a strut mount problem or could it be something worse like in the CV


I vote for the brake pads. Does the rattle stop if you slightly apply the brake. If the caliper releases enough the pad can rattle. ... 2004 Toyota Sienna

Changed front left hub assembly on a Mercury Mountaineer 97 and now there is a loud noise when we drive forward but no noise when you back up. The noise was not there till the hub assem was changed also there is no noise when you turn the wheel to the right I think... One way or the other, there is no noise. When you drive faster the noise goes faster like something is not on right and hitting as you go.There seems to be nothing wrong with the axle. Brake light comes on.It is a loud noise like i

Bought a 1990 Bronco II from one of my troops and somehow he drove it over here. It's a manual transmission as well. But once I put it in first gear, it feels like something is stopping it going forward. It goes in reverse and drives fun in reverse. I tried to start it in second gear as well and I can feel the back end trying to move the truck, but something in the front end is keeping it from moving. Even in neutral the vehicle doesn't even want to move. So I'm clueless to what it could be.


1. Check front brakes & front wheels bearings. Lift the front of the car and see if each front wheel turns freely by hand. If not, repair front brakes by removing brake calipers and pads. Install new brake caliper round seals & clean carefully all ... 1988 Ford Bronco II
