If its a squeeking noise the rubber bushes on the shocks or the lower contol arm are worn out, if its a grinding noise it could be the shock itself. If it happens when you turn, a clucking noise might indicate a worn cv joint, or a worn wheel bearing. These are all things that need to be replaced by a professional mechanic, if you have the tools, the bushes might not be too hard to do yourself though. Hope this helps!

Rubbing/grinding sound in front end/ drivetrain


from your description it is possible that the low brake pad warning tag is activated indicating tat the brake pads are worn out
it is a small tag that rubs on the disc just before the pads damage the rotor
as sound travels it could be a rear wheel with the problem
to check , take the vehicle to an accredited brake specialist shop and have the pad thickness checked
to be safe the thickness has to be 1/8 " or better

It sounds like it is coming from the passsenger front wheel : bump bump bump going down the road and sometimes as if the front brake is coming lose ( not the case) 2005 4x4 ford escape is it possible just...


This sounds to me like a broken strut more than anything. As far as i know you can not remove the front differental, because this is the main drive. The rear wheels are only drivin while in four wheel drive. I would sugest to take your car to a mechanic shop and have them "shake down the front end" for any loose parts. A ball joint can also cause a noise as well as a strut mount or strut.

I have a 1999 ford taurus se. There is a knocking or cluncking noise that is coming from the front. It does not happen all of the time. Mostly when going over small bumps on the road. Even while driving...


One of the most common would be the sway bar links and or sway bar bushings. The best way of checking them is to keep the wheels at normal riding height don't jack up car use car ramps or aliment rack then grab the sway bar close to the sway bar links push up and down should have NO play. The sway bar bushings you can do the same but there harder to tell. If you look at the clearance between the bar and bushing there should be none. Also if you can get the car to make the noise while pushing down on the front end use car ramps so you can get under the car while someone else pushes. Noises sometimes can be a nightmare so goodluck.

Saab 93 - noisy when going over bumps on the road.


Have you tried driving over a bump whilst also applying the brakes? (Right foot on gas, left gently on brake - with no one behind you!) If the noise goes away, then it could be the brake pads that are not fitted correctly. Only posting this, as this just happened to mine...the mechanic took it over bumps and noise was there. Applied brakes whilst going over bump, noise went away. Replaced badly fitted rear pads (had been bodged by another garage) and the problem was solved.
