Dodge Grand Caravan Front wheel grinding noise while driving
... Dodge Cars & Trucks
I have a 1987 Dodge caravan with 216K on it. I have a humming - grinding sound coming from the front. I replaced the left front wheel bearing assemble ( it was pretty bad) but still have the same noise and it is getting louder. To see if the left wheel bearing was going, I jacked up the car and let the wheels spin. I could not hear any difference between left and right and I am starting to think it is the transmission. Does this have a trans-axle that would make a grinding noise like that? Thank
Try making tight turns to the right and then to the left. see if the grinding noise comes and goes. It could be your C/V joint and they need to be replaced. The noise will only come when your making the tight turns, you don't have to go fast. ... Dodge Caravan
My 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan makes noise occasionally when I turn left or right. They noise sounds like a grinding or loose piece of metal grinding somewhere. I have checked both wheels, nothing is loose. I just went under the van and saw that where I assume the rack/pionion is located a lot of red fluid on the bottom of the vehicle and only on the right side. Lastly, the noise seems inconsistent but mostly when turning sharp corners with the gas pedal depressed as opposed to coasting. What co
Have you checked your power steering fluid?Hopefully it will be a easy fix. good luck to ya. ... Dodge Caravan
My 2000 Dodge Caravan mini van makes loud grinding noise when turning and continues while driving straight. This noise happens every now and again while simply braking. I was told at one point that my cv joint may be going, rear wheel and master cylinder may be leaking, need serpentine belt and rear brakes are going (I get a squealing when I stop). What is this grinding sound? It happens at all different speeds.
If your getting a grinding noise when turning it's probably in the power steering. If you leaking fluid you have a hole, more then likely in the high pressure line or the rack and pinion is bad. ... 1994 Chevrolet Lumina APV

I have a 2006 dodge grand caravan and has developed a very loud whine on start-up and it usually worsens as I turn the wheel while driving. The noise seems to subside once I've been driving for awhile.
The wine is most likely the power steering pump, check your fluid level if its full then you will probably have to replace the pump. the reason it gets better after it worms up is that ... Dodge Grand Caravan
Engine noise I have a 2000 dodge grand caravan with a 3.3L i bought new, it now has 110k miles on it uses no oil runs great. it has a noise in engine that has been getting worse the last year. its coming from the front of engine, i can take the belt off start it and its still there. its not a rod or wrist pin or bearings i don't think because when i put it in gear under load its stays the same, driving down the road whether under load or off the gas its the same it sounds to me like a chain tens
It is true that this engine DOES in fact have a timing chain. The 3.0L uses a timing belt, which has to be replaced at regular intervals. Typically, the 3.3 & 3.8, which both use a timing chain, don't have to be replaced nearly as often but sti ... 2000 Dodge Caravan
The front end of my Saturn dropped about 3 inches on the driver side wheel well and makes a grinding noise when I try to drive it, especially if turning the wheels. The wheel is almost touching the wheel well, but is not the cause of the grinding noise. I don't dare to even drive it. It seemed to happen very quickly. Help!
Sounds like you had a ball joint come off, or an a-arm is damaged. ... 2002 Saturn L-Series
I have a 2002 Toy Camry and today while driving I went to make a left turn. I heard a deep "thud" sound that came the front right-side wheel area and a strange grinding noise that followed also on front right side only . Upon completing the left turn the grinding noise got louder. When I apply the break the grinding gets worse but while driving straight no noise.gringing

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with a V8 engine, and a couple of months ago I noticed that oil was leaking from the front of the vehicle. Then during the past week, every morning I've heard a low grinding noise coming from the front of the vehicle and the oil gauge would be low and slowly build up as I would drive and stops at the middle of the gauge. Then last night, as we were driving the grinding noise would get louder as we press on the gas. We checked the oil and it was very low
Wow,\015\012I think we have determined if the "oil" you saw as engine oil, yes I would say it was.\015\012Sorry no easy solution. You may have a main crank shaft seal leaking, a engine oil coolant line, or a manifold gasket leak.\01 ... 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2008 Grand Caravan power steering makes pulsating noise when turning wheels, sounds as if the system is starved for fluid but it's completely topped off. My 2002 Dodge Intrepid made the same noise during a power steering fluid change and the tech wanted me to turn the wheels to the locks to purge the old fluid...makes me wonder if the Grand Caravan is some how not getting fluid from the reservoir.

HI I have a 1996 Dodge grand caravan ES With a 3.8 LT motor front wheel drive. The motor is not missing but with I come to a stop at and intersection it will die on me it starts right back up and runs good. It doesn't happen all the time it doesn't die going down the road at a steady speed only when I come to a stop. The engine light doesn't come on so I think it might be something minor. I have cleaned the battery terminals and it's still doing the same thing
Take your battery in and have it checked, some of those older caravans need to have at least 13.1 volts in the battery at all times in order to keep running!!!\015\012sounds weird but i've seen hundreds of times!!\015\012:-) ... 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan
4 wheel drive not engaging correctly. placed vehicle on jacks and attempted to engage 4wd. grinding noise from passenger cv joint, both back wheels spun independently but neither of the front wheels would spin. Able to spin the passenger front wheel but the cv joint does not turn with the wheel however the drivers front tire and cv joint do turn as they should(together).

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
