Question about 1994 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

It sounds like something is vibrating or rubbing in the front end. I put new brake discs on about 2000 miles ago. I started to have this noise problem about 200 miles ago and it is steadily getting worse. I backed off the calipers and the noise seemed to go away when I test drove it. Once I pumped the brakes up the noise returned. Could I have a warped disc or vibrating brake pads or what? Thanks for your assistance. Dave

    No, because the pads were only about 7 months old and looked like they had over 80% of the pad left. When I took it apart yesterday they still looked good and I saw no cracks or anything wrong with them.

    I have ths ame thing...rubbing...sounds like bad brakes, but they are fairly new...really bad at high speed when applying brakes...not so bad when going slower (in town)

    When do you hear the sound? When you apply the brakes or all the time?

    One thing that usually causes rubbing sounds is when the backing plate is touching the rotor so make sure that isn't the case.

    Did you replace the brake pads when you replaced the discs?

Weird vibration, unable to figure out


I would have the front wheel bearing adjustment checked first as if they are loose the rotor will be rubbing on the pads and the vibration will be wheel wobbling on the loose bearings Unless you replaced the bearings with new ones then they will fail especially if the adjustment was too tight and too much grease was used.

After new brakes, grinding noise in rear. repair guy says need $600.00 proportion valve job! Already had new one 3 years ago.


The grinding sound could be a brake pad installed wrong or backwards.There should not be any grinding what so ever.There is a serious problem.I would take it to a shop or dealership you can trust and have it check out.

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire


The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.

Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.


Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly
