Question about 1992 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Grinding sound in brakes

When stopping the car at moderate speed, the rear brakes make a low pitched grinding sound. i had them looked at by a mechanic who cleaned them and said the parts were good. But still there is the grinding. this doesn't seem normal.

Also there is a smell of fuel in the cabin upon starting the car and then it dissipates.

Loud brake noise in 97 buick lesabre


When you had the drums off, did you inspect the shoes for excessive wear? And How do the drums look? Are they grooved? Can you be more specific about the loud noise. Does it sound like a grinding noise, or a screeching or pulsating noise. Is it lower pitch or high pitch?

Squeaking and grinding noise when I apply the brakes


Try replacing or resurfacing your rotors and brake hardware. Using brake pads similar to the oem will also help stop any problems.

Rear wheel squeaking and grinding when I push brakes on 2004 Fiat Scudo 2.0 jtd........Any ideas..???


Yeah, bad brake pads and now because you let it get to the point of grinding, you'll probably need a new rotor or drum too. When the brakes start to wear down and they need changing there are wear indicators built into the pads that start to make a high pitched squealing sound. If you ignore it for to long then it starts to grind because all the brake material is gone and you are now hitting metal on metal when you try to stop.

Grinding noise left rear wheel


It's either the brakes or the wheel bearing. Remove the brake rotor and check for grooves or scoring then rotate the hub assembly. You'll find a problem with one of the two. A growl that changes with vehicle speed is usually a bearing whereas brakes usually change sound as you apply low to moderate brake pressure.12_24_2012_7_08_04_pm.png

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

Rubbing/grinding sound in front end/ drivetrain


from your description it is possible that the low brake pad warning tag is activated indicating tat the brake pads are worn out
it is a small tag that rubs on the disc just before the pads damage the rotor
as sound travels it could be a rear wheel with the problem
to check , take the vehicle to an accredited brake specialist shop and have the pad thickness checked
to be safe the thickness has to be 1/8 " or better

1999 Ford Ranger Front right brakes are making a grinding sound and a high pitch when i turn left, Do you know what it is ?


the grinding sound and the high pitch sound may not be related.
the grinding in the brakes means it is time to replace the brake pads / shoes and either replace or repair the discs and drums.

the high pitch noise that you are hearing while turning is more likely caused by a worn belt, low power steering fluid, or a faulty power steering pump.

Although it could be indicating something more serious like hub bearings going out, your best bet is to take it to a front end shop that offers free estimates and have them diagnose it in person.

hope this helps.

Medium humming noise when backing up at low speeds


Probably rear brakes. Clean them up or get them looked at and try again.

2002 dodge caravan rear disc noise


Sure sounds like you need new brake pads. On the brake pad is a small metal tab that contacts the rotor and squeals when the pads need to be changed. Hope this helps. Please keep me posted. Good luck
