This model has a brake shield that may rub during a hard turn. i would also check the rotor bearings as well. check the fender wall for lose plastic wheel cover as well.

2001 kia sephia won't turn over, no noise when key turned. Car was tuned off to run into store. Came out to start nothing.Can't hear starter, fuel pump nothing makes any sound.


Make sure it's in park, or neutral if manual tranny. Make sure battery connections are tight and clean. Check starter relay and check ignition switch electrical portion to ensure it's getting current from the battery to the relay.

That sounds like a cv joint. It is right behind the tire on the end of the axle. It should have a rubber boot around it. I suspect the boot went bad causing you to lose the grease.

Grinding


Check the brakes and make sure the caliper isn't sticking. If OK, then it's probably your wheel bearings.
