After driving for a long while, when i slow down i hear a horrible noise on the front end. it sound like rubbing and squeeling. my mechanic found blue gunk on the brake pads and said he put on new pads and rotors. it is still happening. when i let the call roll on the road, and the speed drops below 30 mph, at about 27 mph i start hearing the rubbing noise and it gets very, very loud when i lightly touch the brakes.


The blue gunk, might be grease from a torn axle boot, or a bad wheel bearing. Of course it's hard to know without looking, but I would be concerned of what the "blue" stuff was and where did it come from. If your mechanic replaced the pads and rotors ... 2005 Nissan Maxima

I have a 2008 Ford Fusion, and have a clunking noise in my front end. It only occurs when I apply the breaks at a slow speed, usually when turning around in a driveway or parkinglot. I dont hear the noise when applying the brakes on a road at a faster speed, only at a very slow speed. I took it to the dealer and they had no luck, anyone have an idea what it could be?


I have a 2006 Mazda 6 wagon - same car under the skin as your fusion. If you have a telescoping steering wheel, it might be that the grease they used for the steering column is substandard. I just fixed my clunky steering by releasing the telescopi ... 2008 Ford Fusion

I hear some kind of wobbly oscillating noise which seems to come from underneath, front passenger side (right hand drive) during accelerating from stationary. The noise oscillates faster as vehicle pick up speed and disappear when the vehicle is already cruising steadily. No noise is heard when the vehicle is running/cruising slowly (gear engaged) with foot on the gas pedal. It will resume to make noise once again if accelerating from very slow speed or stationary. I tend to think that its n

I have a 1997 dodge Dakota 5.2l v8 with 165,000 miles. There is a couple of problems that I'm not sure what it is. 1st problem is when the car is rolling I hear a type of grinding noise by the front drivers side wheel. It's not the brakes cause they are new. The 2nd thing is the truck seems to shift hard from 1st to 2nd and downshifts at slow speed too soon. The 3rd is I'm hearing a some vibrating noise in the rear when I take off or turn from a stop.


First if breaks aren't dragging and you had pads replaced, and rotors turned or replaced. Jack up the front and check the wheel bearings by pushing in on the top of the wheel and pushing in on the bottom in a jerking motion. You should feel any movem ... 1997 Dodge Dakota

My 93 Pontiac sunbird 3.1 abs, is making some type of rubbing noise almost like that noise you hear when semi trucks wheels contact the pavement. It only makes the noise when I turn left at high speeds. Any ideas, possibly a front passenger bearing ?


Check all suspension components on that side, strut, bushings, ball joints, bearings, and definently the CV(constant velocity) joints. Good luck ! ... 1993 Pontiac Sunbird

I have a pretty loud growling noise in my rear end. While my tires are worn, and have a bit of a chop in them, I'm hearing the growling particularly loud when traveling at slow speeds, less than 10 mph. I would doubt that the tires would be causing this sort of growling. I have removed one of the rear wheels and spin the wheel and get a bit of a growling or rubbing sound from the assembly. The brake pads don't appear to be rubbing due to a warped disc but I can't tell that there is the typic

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.

I have a 94 ford mustang. I hear a bad "rubbing noise" in the front end and also a whine from the power steering pump. The steering seems to be ok, but people are telling me i need a new power steering pump..this is only happening at low speeds when turning the steering wheel right or left just a little. doesn't seem to be happening at faster speeds. Is this the power steering pump going out or something worse?


It sounds like you need to replace it or you can get your power steering pump flushed out and give that a try. As for the rubbing noise I need more info. What are you doing to make it do that noise? Do you know where in the front? ... Ford Mustang

When I start using the breaks and when I'm running at slow speed. The noise at first made me think that it could b something with the break pads or even the disk itself, but the break system is installed at the front, plus, I ddn't hear the pads wearing out and doens't seens to affect the break's response or effectivity. Atthe frst the noise reminds me as it the car was pulling something on the street and then paying a littgle more of attention sounds like thre is something related to the wheels

I have a 2005 5.3 Chevy Tahoe. It has about 119,000 miles. About a month ago I noticed a humming sound coming from under the hood. So low that I must turn my radio off and let my windows up to hear. I hear the noise as I accelerate and the noise speeds up as the truck speeds up and slows down as the truck slows down. My power brake booster or hydro booster had a bad seal and I thought that was where the sound was coming from but after changing it out, the noise was still there. I was also

I'm hearing a squealing/whining sound from the drivers side front area, but very randomly. It seems to come and go on whim with no apparent outside influences such as speeding up, applying brakes, turning, or anything else. The only thing it does consistently is it stops making that noise when the vehicle slows to a near stop or is stopped. When it happens, it is always when the car is in motion. BUt again, it starts and stops at random times when in motion. I just noticed this about a week and

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.


Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does t ... 2003 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
