Question about 2000 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Squeaking noise at low speeds

My neon makes a squeaking noise as you drive slowly. It is noticeable between 0km/hr - 40km/hr. Can't be heard at higher speeds. It goes away after a bit of driving, but comes back after the car has been parked for a few minutes or so.

    It's hard to pin point where the sound is coming from, perhaps it is coming from the passenger side, and maybe front. The sound does not appear to increase with speed, the sound is constant. The sound is there whether i break or not (at low speed). Again the squeaking goes away after a while, but then comes back. I have tried to figure out how to get the sound to come back, so that when i take to mechanic again it would make the sound for him. It worked a bit when I have foot on break and then just took foot off the break and coasted, it made sound, then i repeat it a few times, then it went away. Then it came back. I had taken it to mechanic, but it didn't make the sound for him, really frustrating. I hadn't notice the sound change when going over bumps. That's all the information I have. This may be a small problem, but I don't want it to become a bigger problem. I do have a trip to make this weekend, so was hoping to get this solved, or if it is ok to just take the car on the trip, with the squeak.

    Correction, took the car out again and the squeaking noise does appear to make a "faster" squeaking noise at speed increases. Also, noise can be heard at around 50km/hr now. Not sure if it's worse now because it's wet out now...the noise when i took it around the block did not go away.

    I think more info is needed to helpl u with this...

    Front, back, left/right side?

    is the squeak increasing with speed or appear to be a "faster"squeak" ?

    does it go when u brake?

    Does it accentuate when you go over a bump..

    any other behaviour you can relate will help a lot!

Take the front wheels off and look between the brake scratch plate and the rotor. - a stone trapped there will cause this noise. Also between the driveshaft and the hub, where the shaft enters the hub at the back. l
Look too for either a support bracket for a brake line or ABS wiring touching the driveshaft. Also there is an antisqueal spring on the back of the brake calipers someotimes this will touch the outside of the brake rotor, you'll see a shiny mark on the rotor if something is touching. Also the scratch plate on the back of the rotor can touch the inside of the wheel rim, again look for a shiny mark all the way around the inside of the rim. Lastly look at the face of the brake rotor for a circular scratch - indicates a stone stuck in the brake pad. Have fun!

When bringing car to a stop using the brakes I hear a squeaking noise I drive a 2007 pontiac vibe


Check to see if the brake pads are low. They might be low enough and the squealers may be touching. Which will make a squeaking noise. If they are not low you may have metallic brake pads that will also make a squeaking noise. If this is the case you can try disc brake quiet. This is a spray that you can get at most auto part stores.
I hope this helps!
