The grinding noise when you are braking is worn out pads. Metal against metal is not good for your discs - replace the pads otherwise your up for machining of the discs or replacing. That noise on start-up is common with worn teeth on the fly wheel. The fly wheel will stop in "common" positions just how the momentum of the motor works and the teeth can wear out at these spots - sounds horrid but is not "unsafe" problem is one day you may not be able to start the car if the starter cannot engage the fly wheel to turn the motor over. This is where you hear of people turning the motor over a little by hand (they usually remove the stone plate from below the fly wheel to hand crank the engine) I don't recommend this practice probably better to price a replacement and while it is apart consider any other work eg. Clutch or minor seal leaks as it is not a small job to replace the flywheel.

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.

While I am driving when I am pressing the gas pedal it makes a scraping noise but not all the time. If I hit the brakes it will stop. I have a 2001 Nissan Sentra GXE


Sounds like it might be the low brake pad indicator. A small flap of metal which is made to scrape the rotor when the brake pads reach a certain low level. When brackes are applied the noise typically quiets.
Check for worn front brake pads.
