Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Car problems ):

The grinding noise.. I think it's something in the transmission. But I got it rebuilt like 8 months ago? It makes the noise in every gear. And even when I'm parked. Just sitting there. It started about a month ago. And it did it every so often. But now it does that noise EVERYDAY. especially on HOTTT days.

Check transmission fluid with vehicle up to temp (after driving) and running at idle on level ground. If slightly overfull no problem. Be sure to remove dipstick, wipe clean and reinstall/remove for accurate fluid level check.

A knocking and grinding noise coming from underneath the car,

if you had the CV JOINTSreplaced , they both should have lasted for a long time, how much do you trust your mechanic ? always something to consider ! also, the mechanic who replaced the CV'S last time, did he do a good job ? was there a grinding noise then ? did you get a warranty on the previous cv's, I'm not tryin to point any fingers, just sayin, you need to be aware of every move you make, and who you make it with. NOW, go to good transmission shop, have them test drive ,with you in car, and inspect your front end and transmission, its free , good luck

I have a 2004 Ford Explorer, and the past 2.Weeks or so it has been.making an awful grinding noise, mostly when I leave work in the morning before it warms up. And when it makes this noise, if I try to...

I have had this on several 01-05 Explorers, and it sounds like the clutch packs are sticking in the rear differential. Once the lube heats up and everything else in there warms up, they will un-stick. Does this noise occur when you make a tight corner at low speeds? If you go around in a tight circle and it makes a horrendous noise in the rear, this is for sure the case. I'm assuming the noise is coming from the rear and not the front. There is no cheap fix for this. They also are known for transmission issues, but that problem generally is high revving and then a hard shift 1-2 and 2-3.

Grinding noise coming from the alternator + battery light on

Failed front bearing (noise you hear) in the alternator plus the light means the alternator needs to be replaced. Buy a quality rebuilt unit online or from the dealer parts dept.

did you hook up the flywheel to the torque converter? the clicking and grinding noise could be the trans is in park and the flywheel is going around, or the torque converter is bound up and not properly in the pump of the trans, and the clicking and grinding could be the parking pawl trying to stop and lock the trans.(this is what stops the car from rolling) I think its a torque converter alignment problem.

2003 Chevy Impala transmission

Did you have it serviced or rebuilt, If you had it rebuilt I would take it back to the trans shop for warranty repairs.
If they just changed the trans filter I don't think it would cause your problem.You just have bad luck with the slipping trans

Transmission slipping making noise

If u keep it below 25 miles an hour you should make it, but this loud noise worries me, this noise means something is coming apart, if it does it may lock the trans up, so keep the speed down.

1997 Mazda MPV makes a grinding noise in 4wd

You can check the hub bearings very easily by jacking the front of the vehicle up and shacking the tire from top to bottom and seeing if there is excessive play.If there is then you know it is a bearing if not then you know you have to look deeper.

Dodge stealth

Sounds like a problem in the valve body control, or the vacuum control of the valve body.
The vacuum control leak could cause the grinding noise because it didn't actuate far enough when trying to engage reverse.
In either case this is something for a transmission shop to handle.

You said you had it rebuilt. Did they rebuild the transmission you had? Or did they just swap it with a rebuilt they already had on the shelf?
My first call would be to them to see what the warranty coverage was from the last repair. My guess would be that it might not be, but it could, it's worth a shot.

Let us know what they say.
