When I turn to the right I have a grinding noise

My scion xb has only one problem. When I turne to the right there is a grinding noise that seems to be coming from the front passengers wheel. It is not the same noise like when the cv joints are going out. There is no clicking or "jerking" when a turn is made. When you turn to the right the sound is almost like if something is scraping.... but there is nothing there. Any ideas?

    My 2006 Scion Xb started to make strange noise while making sharp right turn at slow speed. It sounds like door hinges that need lubrication. It only occurs once a while. Should I have it checked or wait until it make more noises?

Could possibly be brake or wheel bearing issue.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?

I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

2005 xb squeals when I start the car then fades

I'm not sure where these other guys live but their solutions are nonsense. Coolant leaks? Fuel pumps? Dead or dying batteries? I too drive a 05 Scion xB and have had squeak issues. These squeaks and squeals are caused by one or both of the serpentine belts. If not the belts then the pulley's associated with the belts. One of the belts drives the power steering and the other operates the Alternator, Water Pump and AC Compressor.
Does your car squeak when you have the AC turned on and the fan running fairly fast?
Do you hear a rough kind of noise when you're turning the wheel? If it's either or those two then I'd check your belts.
But still to be on the safe side I'd bring it to a mechanic and have them check the belts for glazing or wear then go from there. If you can put belts on yourself they will run you about $40 for the pair. Most garages charge an arm and a leg for them and then another appendage to install them.

Best of luck

The other day I heard a grinding noise like if the muffler was dragging from the bottom of my 2006 scion xb when I was coming slowly out of a full stop at a red light and then again when slightly turning...

I couldn't really tell you if the noise you are describing is related but the first thing you need to do is find out what Trouble Codes your ECM (Computer) is giving you, that's why the Check Engine Light is on. Once you have the codes it will give us a better indication of where to look. You will need to hookup a OBD II Scanner (On-Board Diagnostic) to you Diagnostic Port located under your driver's side dash panel. Once you retric=ve the Trouble Code out of the Computer you can start pin-pointing what the problem is.

I will tell you it most likely is related and has to do with your Trans-axle (Transmission), maybe a bad soleniod or a bad sensor. You can have the codes retrieved at no charge from most Auto-Zones, O'Reilly Auto parts, Pep Boys, Aamco Transmissions and there may be other shops may do it for you for no charge.

Grinding noise in driver side front when wheel is turned to right - no noise when wheel is neutral

This may be either a dragging brake shoe or possibly a wheel bearing. The car needs to be taken to a mechanic or one of the national service dealers (Meineke, Midas, Wheel Works, etc.) for a diagnosis before the problem becomes more expensive.

On a hard left turn there is a grinding noise from the driver side front tire. Have done a visual inspection and everything looks fine. No play in wheel bearings. This is a 2005 Scion xb

If its the bearing - there might not be any play..
Bad bearing usually get worse & worse pretty quick..

Shouldnt be the problem on a 05 - but have you looked at the CV joints ?

Noise while turning

no clicking what so ever i asked a friend of mine who used to be a mechanic and he said that it could possibly be the dust sheild on the brake caliper rubbing, there is no clicking sound. It makes a sound like the rotor is bumping into something when you turn. if i turn only a little there is little or no noise and it gets worse/louder the more u turn in that direction.
