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?

Whenever I start my 2004 Dodge Stratus, there is a loud squealing noise that sounds like it is turning like a belt or something. Recently, all belts, timing chain, water pump, and fuel pump were replaced.

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

I got my 2004 dodge neon for my 18 birthday, and it has been a NIGHTMARE. When I first got my 2004 dodge neon, it developed this problem where when i would drive it for a over a few miles, and i would turn the car off, the car would not start again. My car would also not start on a slope (i would have to push my car onto a flat surface to start). When i turn the key, the engine does not turn, there is nothing. I have to let the car sit for at LEAST an hour to get it start again, sometimes more.


Have you checked fuel pressure. Sounds like a clogged fuel filter & or a bad fuel pump,that once in awhile binds up mechanically,them is okey for awhile. The time you have to wait,to start it,is just a coincidence.\015\012\015\012I wo ... 2004 Dodge Neon

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.

I have a 2002 trailblazer ltz, I go to start the truck and it just clicks under the hood, no noise or anything. The lights on the console comes on and the radio says that's it's on but it only plays static. Also everything seems to be reset in the car like the car was saying "Driver 1" even though I had the driver 2 key and remote and also the time on the radio was reset to 12:00. Also as I'm turning the key the radio screen says "Need AMP". what do you think this could be?

My 1998 Dodge Intrepid has started making a grinding noise in the rear end when braking. I had the brake pads checked at a garage and they said they were only 65% worn, no need to replace, they don't replace them until they're more like 90% worn. But the grinding is bad... it is worse when there are extra people or stuff (weight) in the car. It sounds like metal on metal to me. It kind of comes and goes, sometimes it isn't really there but most of the time it is, and sometimes it is really b
