Question about 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan

Noise is like cards in the spokes of a bike tire

My caravan has been making a noise like cards in the spokes of a bike tire for a little while. Usually it is quiet in park but makes the noise most other times. Now my OBD light just came on and I'm wondering what the problem is.

Depends on what year and engine you have. But if the noise is only occurring when the vehicle is in drive, or reverse, then I would consider asking a local transmission specialist take a look at it.

I have a 1997 Ford explorer. There is a funny clicking noise coming from the driver side front. The best way I can describe it is it sounds like a kid riding his bike with a playing card on the tire


If you have front wheel drive the clicking when car is in motion only could be a cv joint on its way out. They never leave this world quietly, and when they finally go, you stop going!

I doubt it has anything to do with the transmission.
When the brake pads wear most have a wear sensor that drags along the rotor.
Have you pulled the wheels and checked the brake pads ?

Clicking noise


I thought it was the CV axle in mine as well. I had a Chrysler Pacifica and had the CV axles repaired. The clicking noise continued (Almost reminds you of a card in a bike tire spoke.) Turns out it was the emergency brake. They had rusted on the driver side and were falling apart. They finally rusted off. When I had those replaced, the clicking noise was also gone. =)

Loud scraping noise when turning corner or backing up


The scraping noise may be a "tire rub," where one or both front tires are rubbing the wheel
wells during a turn (going forward or backing up).
Cause: possible ties size may be a little larger than the tires specified by Dodge for the vehicle.
Check: the driver's door panel, which will show manufacturer-recommended tire sizes and inflation pressures.

My jeep makes a sound from the rear for example today backed out of a parking spot and a loud clicking kinda like if u put a baseball card in the spoke of a bike only louder


Check the back brakes . I believe you have drum brakes in the back.The brake hardware. ie..Springs, clips.. come apart sometimes. And this will cause the clicking noise you hear

1997 dodage grand caravan sport, when shifting from park to drive it makes a ticking noise, do you know what this could be? the car shifts fine and runs fine 126,000 miles.


The electronic shift solenoids in those transmissions make a ticking noise when shifting, same as when you slow down and stop, you will hear it as well, if it's quiet and your window is down. My guess is what your hearing is normal but if worried, stop at any reputable mechanic shop, or dealer and they will confirm it, free of charge.

Why does my neon make a loud noise id rive, after


From your description it certainly sounds like a bearing but since you've changed it I would look at the tire for any chopping or cupping as this will cause a noise that is speed related as well. To verify a wheel bearing as you drive the car carefully weave from one side of the lane to the other. A wheel bearing will change pitch as you change the load on it and usually the bearing that is quiet to the left is the right bearing that is bad and vise versa.

When I go over 25 mph I get a clicking noise


Not brakes. Check for something stuck in the tire.
or something loose in the hub cap.
