SOURCE: Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel

I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
Good Luck

SOURCE: steering wheel grinding noise..sounds like no power steering

First, check and make sure it is full of fluid. If it's not fill it and watch for leaks. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Rubbing/grinding noise

Usually the strut bearing will make this noise upon turning a corner and hitting a rut or pot hole when turning. A wheel bearing will make a low pitched whinning sound constantly

Sounds like you have a IWE that the gears are ground down, or a bad vacuum line to that side.

This could have been caused by the IWE ( Integrated Wheel End ) solenoid ) TSB :

You can check the vacuum line with a vacuum pump and gauge tester, just to be sure, but considering it is grinding while in 4WD, I would say the IWE needs to be replaced on that side. Maybe change the IWE solenoid while you are doing the work ( it will be a rounding error on the total cost )

SOURCE: power steering noise on turning; noticed no power

Check the ends of your rack & pinion for signs of a leak. If a leak is present, replace the rack & pinion. If no leaks, maybe your power steering pump is going out.

Testimonial: "Thanks; gave good starting point; also relief from a possible major bill, like the whole steering column etc.....! Also, when I take it to a mechanic, I know to start with small diagnostics working up to $$$ expense. Meaning I'll know if a mechanic is taking me or not!"

Were the top strut bearings changed?

You don't turn the steering wheel, unless
your have the vehicle moving or off the ground

Do you flush the power steering fluid every 3 years,
when you do the trans fluid every 3 years?

When I am driving there is a grinding/screeching noise that started recently. it sounds like it is coming from the rear wheel and is intermittant.


The fault can be that the brake padds are rubbing against the drum, If by braking the sound increases then it is confirmed.
Howeverr if not the wheel bearings can be faulty, the rear hub can be faulty or the tyres are rubbing on the mudguard.
But lift up the side where you notice the noise and look for these sections, roll the wheel to confirm.

Noise coming from the front end of my 2003 dodge durango


You didn't specify if your vehicle is 2- or 4-wheel drive. If 4 wheel, you may have a failing contstant velocity joint which, when having developed worn spots in the cage can cause the noise you describe.
Typically, turning the wheel back and forth can cause the noise to become less or more loud and often the combination of a specific speed and driving a certain curve radius can cause the noise to nearly disappear or become more pronounced.

Grinding noise in the left front wheel while turning right - gets more noticeable the harder the turn is. Checked tire clearance - no problem, but it's not a rubbing noise but a grinding noise. No problem...


grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).
