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.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

My 2001 bmw 325 cic started making an awful grinding noise today when moving the steering wheel at all to the left or right. Can also hear the noise under the hood.


It sounds like your car is low on power steering fluid. When the power steering fluid is low, the power steering pump is running dry, which makes a grinding or moaning sound. Check the power steering fluid level and top up if necessary. It should be on the left side of the engine compartment. Your owners manual should have the exact location of the power steering reservoir, and what type of power steering fluid to use.
Good luck

Constant low grinding noise from right side especially when turning let. everyhting is tight and just had the tires changed. it did not change anything. can it be the wheel bearing?


maybe bearings, but I would check and make sure that the metal cover or the pads are not causing your noise on the right side. You may want to jack up the front end and turn you wheel hard left and rotate the tire and see/listen. Good Luck Tim

Steering wheel


What kind of noise, if growling and grinding check and replace wheel bearing. If thumping clunking type noise check steering intermediate shaft, makes noise in both directions.

Grinding/Low Whining noise when turning


sounds like the power sterring pump check valve is failing because it only when you turn, try to turn the wheels standing still to verify the noise, if noise present, replace the ps pump.

A low growling noise when turning left only on '04 Silverado


Intermediate shaft is the most likely cause for this and your right there have been issues.

Knocking noise


If the knocking sound is coming from the steering wheel area itself, then I believe it's the nylon bushing in the steering colum. My friend had the same problem with his truck. The other trucks we work on at the shop seem to have this common problem.

If it's sounds like its outside the truck, have the tie rod ends checked out.

2001 Silverado Chevy Truck


check your belt tension and also look for any leaks on the rack and pinion ,did you perhaps turn the wheel at all while the engine was off? or was the truck in a shop that may have done this, if so there may just be air in the system that needs to be worked out -jeff please rate
