I have a 2000 Blazer and when I drive down the road I get a kind of grinding noise from the front end. It makes this noise when I drive straight, but if I turn the wheel ever so slightly to the left the noise goes away. It sounds almost like a rubbing of the tires, but I see no evidence of that going on. It seems to be on the left side mostly, although it could be on the right, I just don't sit there.


It might be the hub bearing assembly on the driver side. If you can have someone drive for you so you can check out the other wheel. ... 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

I have a vibration in the front drivetrain on my Sorento. the vibration starts at about 30-35 mph and gets loudest at about 65-70 mph. The weird thing is that teh Vibration and associated noise completely goes away in a left turn. Even a slight turn to the left causes the vibration to go away. any help is appreciated. thanks, Jim


Wear (on a bearing or a pivot) combined with a slight bad geometry on the front suspension and a slightly unbalanced wheel: at lower speeds or very high ones the vibration is too weak to be felt thru the steering. When you turn the wheel the slight t ... 2003 Kia Sorento

On April 29, 2011, a clacking sound started coming from the area of my right front passenger side tire. The noise from the right front passenger sided starts the clacking noise every time I make a right or left turn and when I take off from stop. This noise continues until my speedometer gets between 25 mph and 30 mph when it makes a light clicking sound for a few seconds and then stop. The clacking or clicking sounds goes completely away when I am traveling @ 35 mph and above. 2 guys who work

I am having suspension/ball joint issues with my 1995 Lincoln Town Car.

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem turning left. The car is a 1998 Cabrio, so a bit older. Have had the front wheel bearings repaired (packed? replaced?) once but several years ago. Sound like a bearings issue? Or could it be brakes?

I got a Civic '02 the drl sign lights up and loud noise is coming from the glove compartment area. After investigation I found out the right light is not on while the left is fine (when the drl sign shows up and the car makes noise). sometimes switching to high beam for a second fixes this. The noise and sign goes away and the right light appears again. Also putting on the head light turns off the noise but when turning them off the car goes back to the noise/sign showing. eventually aft

When I go over bumps or am turning I hear a clunking noise on my front right side. It seems to slowly get worse. It seems like it happens whenever the weight of the car is transferred. If I make a turn really slow and soft I can make it not happen. I checked my axles and they seem intact. My struts seem to be OK, I can push down on my hood and only get 1 bounce. This noise occurs more loudly when curving to the left and then to the right. Weight transfer of some sort. Any Ideas or suggestions?


I had the same clunking issue. People who want to make money off you will tell you anything. First thing to check is the caliper bushing. Easy to do. Take off the tire and grab the caliper, if the caliper rocks easily by hand, then that is the proble ... Chevrolet Cavalier
