Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Just had the front axles replaced on my 2001 passat 1.8L after about a day or so I noticed that there was a loud whirring noise coming from the passenger side front end wheel. Now I hear a loud squealing noise, and randomly while driving the brakes sound like they are rubbing and grinding, checked the brake pads but all is well. Any suggestions as to what this might be?

SOURCE: Front brakes replaced and then heard a loud bang

it sounds like one of the mounting bolts-pins came loose or was not fully tightened.
the grinding noise could have been on the wheel or rotor depending on what came loose. probably the bang means its missing altogether now, DANGEROUS! do not drive.
have a tow truck bring it back and be there to look when they inspect it....

SOURCE: ABS light & trak off light keep coming on.

It sounds like "False Antilock Mode" to me. Your Antilock Brake Control Module "thinks" that you have a wheel locking up. This is probably caused by a bad wheel sensor. You need to scan the module to find out which one.

SOURCE: I hear a grinding noise from the front drivers

Pull the wheel off and inspect the brake pads and also rotate the hub. If a grinding noise is heard loadly the pads are worn. If the noise is low and internal it will be the wheel bearing. The CV joint makes clicking noises upon turning corners while driving if worn

SOURCE: Front end rubbing or grinding noise but goes away

It could be a number of things, but a common problem with this car is rusty pins in the front end.  This is louder when turning.  There was a bulletin issued about it.

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

Is there an electric or vacuum switch on a 2001 chevy blazer


There are 2 models here the push button will flash if the system is not engaging or disengaging properly . If front drive shaft is turning. That is with car raised and supported . if front drive axles do not turn then the axle actuator is not engaging axle shaft passenger side. Remove actuator and manually engage shifting collar with a screwdriver still does not turn then inner axle is twisted.

Fan like whirring noise from rear underside of car


This is most likely your fuel pump. The fact that it is loud, would indicate that it is probably 'on the way out,' and will need to be replaced.
