Question about 1999 Ford Escort
I started having a grinding noise when I pressed on the brakes of my 1999 Ford Escort. I thought it was my brakes, but I had them done and the noise has continued. It is only grinding when I press on the brakes, but while I am driving it also makes loud noises. I had noises like this before on a totally different vehicle and it ended up being the tow bar. Some people have said it could be the axle or a wheel bearing. What is the cost to fix something like that?

When checking to make sure noise is wheel bearings while driving vehicle at speed the noise is loudest (if possible) turn steering wheel back and forth enough to shift the weight of the vehicle from side to side and if it's a wheel bearing there should be quite a bit of difference in the noise.
If about the same noise check the wear pattern on the tires for flat spots or unusual wear pattern if there is rotate tires. If nothing still found jack up vehicle with all 4 tires of the ground. Use jack stands for this. Get some one in vehicle to run it at speed the noise develops, I use a long screw driver (2 feet long) as a stethoscope to find where noises come from. Try with and without 4 wheel drive if possible. Good luck cause noises can be a real pain in the b____.
