I have an intermittant grinding on the front of my 2000 Kia when I go over bumps. the wheel bearings were already replaced because of this, but the grinding continues.


It seems as though you have changed everything.

A grinding noise is associated with something turning or rubbing against something. The only other thing that springs to mind are the drive shafts, which have splined ends. The link below will show you generic images of driveshafts
kia drive joints Google Search

Each end of the drive shaft is splined. One end fits into the gearbox and the other end attaches to the road hub of the road wheel.

It's usually the hub (universal joint that allows the wheel to turn)/ wheel end of the drive shaft that wears. It may be that the grinding noise has been more pronounced when turning? And the grinding noise is coming from just one side?

A new drive shaft isn't cheap although second hand ones are readily available. replacing a driveshaft isn't a particularly difficult job.

However, it may be an idea to get somebody to remove the brake calliper/rotor/ driveshaft hub and inspect the hub/splined end of the drivehaft. What you're looking for is worn, broken or chipped splines. If all seems okay try cleaning and repacking with driveshaft grease. It's probably the hub - the bit that allows the wheel to turn - as opposed to the splines -there's bearings inside that hub (also known as a universal joint). There's no real way of examining that hub other than replacing the driveshaft

Why is my 2008 Lincoln Navigator making a loud metal grinding noise?


If you have not had the cv joints checked or the "U" joints checked I would do that as what you describe is a joint that is binding up under load or turns.

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

Rotational grinding noise from front driver side (90' toyota pickup V6 automatic). grinds all the time when i get moving, sill stop for a second if i hit a bump, then start doing it again. ive alr


This sounds like the cover plate that's mounted on the side of the disk unit.It's normally fastened with two or three bolts and they do come loose at times. Could also be the actual disk pads that have worn down to metal, which will move away from the disk for a few seconds after hitting a bump.If so, make sure that your disks are not scoured as a result of metal on metal contact, whereby you would have to fit a new disk with the new pads.Check it out. Good luck.

Grinding noise front drivers side 2010 town and country


Is the noise constant and changes rate dependent on the speed of the vehicle? Or, is it cyclic in nature. I am thinking your wheel bearings, inner/outer CV joints or a loose caliper mounting bolt. Does the problem come up when you are driving straight or turning or when you go over a bump. Many possibilities... Need for info on the problem.

What's your problem?rumbling sound coming from the rear rightside every time I go over a bump or unsmooth tarmac


Look at the rear suspension. I think it is one leaf spring upside down over top of the axel. At the ends they are grinding in there seats. Jack the vehicle up by the body clean out the spring seats and oil them a little its just showing its age.

Grinding noise in the front left tire area, not all the time , but when going slow over a bump or turning left, or sometimes aplying the brakes


Sounds like brake pads are worn out. If not there is possibly a CV joint going bad. Autozone sells package drive shafts with CVs included for not much money. They sell brake pads there too, but if it is grinding you will need to get a brake rotor as well. I seriously recommend parking the car until you get that fixed.

My 96 grand am is making a grinding noise under the car when accelerate the faster i go the louder it gets and when i hit the smallest bump it knocks under the passenger floor board you can feel it bumping...


Brakes hanging up or axle is going out. CV boot is probably torn and you are hearing bearings crashing around. Check before it goes out or you may end up crashing and stranded
