SOURCE: Car won't start after loud grinding noise

had the car been running rough before hand?

It may well be a snapped con rod. Would allow the engine to turn for a while until it jams by the crankshaft.

If the car is manual it may be the clutch plate but with your foot on the clutch it shouldnt stop it.

SOURCE: have 2006 buick rainier....when i back up and turn

hi, if your vehicle is 4wd then the problem your having is going to be that one of the bearings have collapsed inside the differential, if this is the case then please get this looked at sooner rather than later as you could destroy the gearbox and propshaft witch would then cost a fortune to repair.

If on the other hand its not 4wd then it could be one of 2 things it could be that the brake shoes have collapsed and needs replacing or it could be that one of the wheel bearings have collapsed on one of the back wheels and will need replacing asap as it could seize up causing an accident and leaving you car un drivable ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

SOURCE: grinding noise changes with speed stops when

Does sound stop when you turn LEFT?

Turning RIGHT puts the heavy load on the LEFT front wheel.
That initially STOPPED the noise, correct? So why did you change L?

Turning LEFT puts the load on the RIGHT. Did you change the RIGHT?

Let's say this:
If turning RIGHT stops the noise, it's the RIGHT one that's likely bad.
If turning LEFT stops the noise, it's the LEFT one that's more likely bad.

Make sense? Turning RIGHT loads the LEFT wheel; and vice-versa as the WEIGHT SHIFTS AWAY FROM THE TURN.

More than likely it is what some folks call a CV joint problem, not wheel bearings. Try backing up and then going forward to see if "clunking sound" or a sharp "bang" is heard. Wheel bearings and CV joints only work if smooth. Sometimes a BEARING RACE is bad. Also, a bad spindle / part of the CV joint / transaxle assembly worn or badly machined. If in a WET ENVIRONMENT especially, u may want to try marine grade grease or teflon-added grease.




Does sound come from POWER STEERING PUMP area?

Why do I hear grinding noises while driving?


Hit in the rear axle may have damaged bearings or brake parts. Jack up the side you hear noise from, put on stand, then have helper rotate wheel while you look underneath and listen to see where noise is coming from. Use length of old fuel or heater hose, one end in ear, to locate exactly where noise comes from.

Two possibilities come to mind with his type of noise and they both require attention NOW! To check the vehicle park on a level surface with the vehicle off and in park (you may need help). Slide under the vehicle ahead of the rear tire so you can see the connection of the driveshaft to the rear end. Then rock the vehicle back and forth with the tire and look at the u-joint connection. If the rear end yoke is moving more than the driveshaft the u-joint needs replacing. If the joint is extremely bad you can sometimes grab the driveshaft and wiggle it. If the vehicle rocks back and forth and there is little or no movement in the drive shaft and you hear clunking in the rear end there can be serious trouble in the rear end. Either condition will require some mechanical skill to fix. I hope this helps.

1991 gmc jimmy grinding noise.


I'm not sure exactly what the noise could be except that most likely it's in the drivetrain somewhere between the tranny, transfer case, or the rear-differential (AKA: rear-diff, rear-end or third member). None of which would be cheap to repair.

I'm pretty sure the intermittency you're experiencing is because whatever is causing the noise, is only worn & not fully gone yet, but will be soon. Unfortunately, I wouldn't know how to further pinpoint this noise, maybe someone else could???

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.

Grinding noise....sounds like metal


Check the disk brake pads. At slower speeds you can hear them squeak because there is less wind and road noise. The other possibility could be a bad u joint at the ends of the axle half shafts on the front differential. Check both. I really doubt it is the transfer case. You transfer case is engaged all the time. The axle is locked and engaged when you flip the lever by a vacuum motor on the axle shaft on the differential.

I have alot of grinding out of the rearend


Sounds like bearing or bearing are gone out. Jack up vehicle, check fluid level. Grab one wheel and spin it, listening for noise from wheel bearing area and the rear end. If no noise, spin other wheel listening for noise from that wheels bearing.

If it's a heavy grinding you are hearing, it's rear end.
