I have a problem with my 2002 Chevy Silverado Z71. It sounds like there is a rubbing or grinding noise coming from the front end while driving, however no noise when brakes are applied. The other day I was sitting at a stop light and when I went to go at green the truck acted like it didn't want to go, but after a little more gas was applied it went with a little jump to it. Any idea of what could be wrong would be helpful!!!

Clutch was going, now problem is improving in cold weather... tried the clutch test initially, driving at 20 mph, put it in fifth and stepped on the gas.. a month ago the tachometer went up to about 5000 (clutch was going)... now when i do the same test (it is colder) it is not as drastic jumps a little or bogs down... overall driving normally now and i notice no issues like i did before... could this be an indication of something that could be repaired with the clutch and not the clutch itself?


Hi:\015\012I would repeat the test after your vehicle is well warmed up, to try to duplicate your original results. There is the possibility that you had a rear main oil seal , or something else leaking on the engine, causing some slipping on ... 2005 Scion xB

The wining noise is most likely the power steering pump. It's whining because the reservoir is low on fluid due to the fact that you probably have a leaking power steering rack and pinion. Check the fluid in the PS reservoir cold, then hot there are ... 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Minivan

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer, and the past 2.Weeks or so it has been.making an awful grinding noise, mostly when I leave work in the morning before it warms up. And when it makes this noise, if I try to accelerate, it's like if I keep pushing on the gas it's going to break, like it feels like the brakes are on. Today it did it even after the car had warmed up. I pressed my 4by4 buttons a few times, and it seemed to work, but then did it again a few more times. I had both my front hub bearings rep

1990 buick reatta I was driving back home from a trip I took with my Buick, and it decided it didn't want to go home. About 25 miles away from my driveway after accelerating from a stop light going abut 60 it started to hesitate really badly, almost like it was running out of gas. I let off the gas and coasted a bit and then tried giving it gas again with the same results. At that point I heard like a popping noise or a backfire of some sorts and immediately smelt what could only be described as

Well it sounds like a carrier bearing, transmission, or wheel bearing because when i am at a stop and hit the gas to the floor there is like a grinding noise it also happens when i am going around turns and then give it a little gas as i am coming out it does the noise again so if you have any info that could help it would be much appreciated. thank you


The carrier bearing and the transmission dont know or care that you are turning, so I would check the wheel bearings. See if you can duplicate the sound turning left or right like you would be swerving or changing lanes. Or it may have nothing to do ... Ford F-150

When it's colder outside and I start my Blazer, there is a constant ticking noise that comes from the engine area. Once the truck warms up, the ticking goes away (after 5 minutes or so) but when you press the gas pedal, the speed of the noise gets faster. I went to have this checked about a year ago and I was told it could be the lifters, but they said that's something that can't be fixed. Does this sound like anything familiar to anyone? The clicking goes away, like I said, but somethin

Loud noise! 0 Jeep Grand Cherokee after about 5 min starts a very loud high pitch whinning.It used to eventually go away but now it is always whinning and even louder!Seems like it's coming from drivers side engine compartment near the intake manifold. I thought it was a belt because when you step on the gas the rpms go up and the noise quits until you slow down or come to a stop then it starts again!! Is it a vacuum leak? A bearing seizing somewhere? Belt tensioner?


I would say a bad pulley also. Try to open the hood at idle and see if you can hear where it's coming from. Possibly a bad idle pulley or even the fan belf if yours is a mechanical fan. ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I have a bearing sound coming from my 1996 neon. Not sure if its the altenator because i did replace it about a year and a hlf ago with one from the junk yard. The noise seems to go away when you rev it up but then comes right back. If it is really cold outside, it wont make a noise but if it is warmer than 32 degrees its starts acting up. Also it seems like when i have the heater on and i step on the gas i hear like a chirp every now and then.

Intermittent rumbling sound in transmission at ~30 mph when going uphill and easing up a little on the gas. very much like driving over a rumble strip on the highway like they put in front of toll booths. sound goes away if the gas stepped on to increase rpms. tach does not change when rumbling sound happens. what could this be?

After having the transmission fluid and filter changed on a Regal GS supercharged, the transmission seems to sometimes slip when starting from a stop. I step on the gas to go and after a half second or so it engages, almost feels like the tires are spinning but I am not giving it that much gas. Could there be a connection between changing fluid and this problem? What do you think the problem is? Is it likely (and how soon) that the transmission will completely break down? Thank you, Mark


Who changed the fliud? Maybe the wrong fluid was added. Also some transmissions have bands that can be adjusted. Just be easy on it. You don't wont to burn it out. ... Buick Regal

I am hearing a rattling underneath my VW Golf. The noise only happens AFTER I take my foot off the gas or turn the car off...sometimes it happens while idling but not all the time, It sounds like a penny trying to be sucked up by a vacuum. I recently found a blown vaccum hose going to some exhaust portal thing while I was stressed about gas consumption and sluggishness. Fixed that. This noise started around the same time I discovered the sluggishness from the blown hose. What could this be

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. I just ordered new front axles thinking it could be bearings in cv joint going bad and they were never replaced. I have 130,000 miles on 2000 durango. Noise tone also changes when turning to the left.

I believe you have a CV joint going out. I have found it just about as reasonable and easier to install to buy the whole shaft. Try to locate which side is making that noise then jack up that side, be sure to block it good, and grab that shaft or tur ... Chevrolet Prizm
