2005 chevy Impala brakes sqeak loudly

I took my car to the dealership due to the brakes sqeaking and consistently getting louder. They told me this was normal for this car due to a new type of coating on pads. Now my brake light has begun to go on intermittently.Also I now here a ping noise around the front left wheel. Please any ideas? I am supposed to take an 800 mile trip very soon.

    The squeaking only happens when brakes are applied. I was told by a friend that the ping sound that I hear could be a disconnected pin having to do with the rotor. But he is not a mechanic, but just taking a guess. What is the P/S system?

You brakes are no longer any good. Most times, the squeaking and rubbing noises are caused by brake pad wear, but you say the brakes are fine. Otherwise, if by constant rotation speed you mean the squeaking/rubbing noise is present even when the brakes are not applied, you might want to get the wheel bearing inspected.
also check out -------- The most common would be a loose P/S belt. If it is tight but is still the source, it could be a restriction in the P/S system causing high pressure and resistance in the pump.

1995 GMC SONOMA makes a loud sqeaking noise when i take off in the first to third gear, after third gear it stops, but when i get to a stop sighn it starts all back over, loud noise.


This type of noise is likely to be a universal joint that is worn out in the drive line. have a shop put it on a lift and inspect the joints.

Jeep Cherokee - Sqeaking Undercarriage


If the "sqeak" is more pronoused while going over bumps, then it is most likely a bushing in the front end. Check your fuel tank straps also, they may be loose. Sounds like this are always a pain to locate. Make sure nothing is in the back cargo area. You can also take your foot and shake the exhaust, WHILE THE CAR IS COOLED OFF OF COURSE.
You can also push down on each corner of the vehicle in the front and stand on the rear bumper to try to simulate or isolate the noise. That's all I have for ya. Good luck.

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub
