Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT

Wheel makes rubbing sound when driving slow

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GT - when driving slow the front wheel makes a rubbing sound - not a constant sound, almost as if one portion of the wheel is being effected only. It is a metal sound.
When driving faster (over 10km/hr) the sound is not present

You should check the dust shield on the caliper. Sometimes they get bent inward especially if driving in deep snow. It is just a thin piece of sheet steel that protects the inside of the brake rotor. Hope this helps.

The back tires/rotars have too much slack. They aren't tight. Would that be the CV joint or Wheel hub bearings? They make a rubbing noise when I drive fast.

After collision my wheel is no longer aligned 2002 grand prix


It sounds like you broke the wheel bearings loose - I would have a mechanic pull the tire and drum off. This isn't too expensive to fix - max about a couple hundred parts and labor ( if that) even if this has a rear axle.

Your best bet would be to have a mechanic look at it (Tire repair place or mechanic)

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My abs and trac lights are both on. we cant find the sensors to clean them. it is front wheel drive.


When both lights are on you should check wheel sensors. Look for small plug at the back of rotor, probably 2 wire. Make sure all sensors are securely attached/latched and no obvious damage to sensor such as breakage from stone, etc. Check all wiring at wheels for break, rubbing, pinch, etc. If nothing visually obvious then check codes with code reader or scanner for clue to which wheel needs attention.

Weird noise in front of car


How would changing the rear pads fix a noise in the front? Take the front wheels off and look for excess rust on the discs or grit in or on the pads. It sounds like you might be competent enough to take the calipers off (it's not very hard). If the noise gets louder with speed, it could very well be the bearings. This is much harder to do yourself (yay FWD), and you might want to get it towed so you don't damage the hubs, etc. Just shaking the wheel probably isn't enough to diagnose bad bearings.

Pulsing sound and feel from wheels


Ok, if the wheel bearing assembly was installed incorrectly the wheel would wobble and you would have a disconcerting feeling in the steering wheel. The rotors have to be within factory specs to be turned safely. What I would do is have the rotors checked with a micrometer and replaced.
