Question about 2003 Ford Focus

1 Answer

I hear a noise similar to metal to metal when in left curves.

Also when moving at slow speeds and turning you can hear a popping noise but not everytime, only occasionally.

Have your cv joint checked at a garage, it should cost little if at all. ( the check that is)

Have whinning noise when turning right or slowing down sounds like a power steering noise in rear end


A whinning noise while turning is an indication of a worn bearing. The extra pressure put against the bearing/race during the turn and the closing of a gap creates this noise.I would chech the axle bearings on the side of the truck on the outside the curve when you hear it. What I'm saying is if you hear it when you turn left....check the right side bearing

Howling noise from 2006 ford escape when driving


That's a bad wheel bearing. If when driving and you swerve side to side and its loud one way and not the other or not as bad the other then its a wheel bearing. As for the metal shavings on the plug don't worry about it unless there are chunks of metal then you should have the rear end inspected.

Hearing loud humming noise from under the hood. Some say hubs but what else could it be? Some shop I used,unhooked a hose and left it I discovered.


well if it is your hubs going bad the noise will (#1) speed up and slow down with the speed of the car moving!!( because the hubs only move when the tires move)but if the noise speeds up and slows down with the car in park and only reving the engine than it is not your hubs!!! will end up being a bearing going bad on a pulley that is turned by the main v-belt( BELT TENSIONER PULLEY, power steering,water pump,a/c clutch,ect.)

Wheel noise or roar in front end with increased road speed


THIS NOISE IS USUALLY THE HUB. HAVE SOMEONE GO WITH YOU ON A TEST DRIVE. GET THE ROARING TO HAPPEN AT ITS LOUDEST AND GENTLY SWERVE THE CAR LEFT AND RIGHT. DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU THINK BOTH HUBS ARE BAD. LIFT THE FRONT OF THE CAR AND PUT IT ON JACK STANDS. PULL OUTWARD ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TIRE WHILE PUSHING INWARD ON THE TOP OF THE WHEEL. IF THE WHEEL MOVES EXCESSIVELY YOU FOUND THE HUB THAT IS NOISY. USING A MECHANICS STETHOSCOPE YOU CAN SOMETIMES HEAR A ROARING TYPE NOISE ON THE BACKING PLATE SIDE OF THE HUB WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING AND THE TRANS IN GEAR. TRY NOT TO GET THE SPEED UP TOO FAR ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN HEAR THE NOISE AT LOW SPEED, YOU DON'T WANT TO VIBRATE OFF THE STANDS.
