Try turning the steering completely left and drive forward. See if the car feels like it catches or makes a crunching sound, do the same by turning all the way to the right and check for crunching or snapping noises. If it does, check the axle shafts, the CV joints are more than likely worn out.
Let me know.

Rear passenger wheel locked up 94 z71 not the brakes


So, you're saying when you jacked the car up the wheel was locked up. Then, you took the wheel off and what was left (the brake drum) was not locked up?
Is the wheel where it's supposed to be? Is the suspension bunged forward or backward causing the tire to rub something?

Doesn't make much sense...

The car won't go forward or backward


Lift up all the wheels one by one, rotate each wheel and check which wheel resists to rotate. Disassemble the jammed wheel and carefully examine to see why is it so.
Grease the caliper pins, free up the pistons and reset the brake components.

I am hearing a dragging noise from the front of my vehicle only when going forwards. Hit the brakes and they feel fine and no squeeling or anything when i hit them. Any ideas?


Check the wheel wells and see if a mud flap or a splash guard is loose/broken and rubbing. Or even a bag or something could have gotten stuck in the wheel.

I have a 2000 Alero and have front wheel drive. My front left tire will rotate to go forward but as soon as I put the car in reverse the tire will rotate a little bit but than stops and drags with the car....


Sounds like a brake issue to me, like the caliper sticking. I've taken the axle, brakes and hub/wheel assemblies off these many times, pretty simple. If you choose to DIY, I would suggest you buy a Haynes manual....about $20 well worth the investment. The crunching sound maybe a damaged pad, or something that got lodged in there. You have my curiosity, wish I could see it for myself! :) If you aren't a DIYer, take it to a place that does free brake checks, I suspect you may possibly need a new caliper.

It is a sign that you either have a bad wheel bearing or 1 off your speed censors on 1 of the tires is bad, I just had this problem with my olds alero, but it was a wheel bearing that needed replaced.

2001 olds intrigue. When I roll down the back windows it is like an airplane is right above my car. It is so loud. But rolling down the front windows does nothing.


You will have to remove the DOOR trim and Lubricate the internal cables liberally with Penetrating oil. Intermittently to let the oil seep down the cable. Lube the window lower guides as well.

Bearing problem? in 2006 Pilot


Even though you had the brake pads replaced, and since the sound you describe is a "rubbing" sound, I would suspect that the brake caliper piston is sticking and causing brake drag. The only way to check is to pull the wheel and check the caliper. If it is sticking, it will wear the pad out quickly and wll generate heat. After driving, check for excessive heat coming from the wheel. It could be a wheel bearing, but I would check out the brake caliper first. Sure hope this helped. Good luck.
