Question about 1998 Toyota Sienna

Open Question

My car has grinding and scraping noise when moving forward that getting worse when its warmed up

I just got this car about 800 miles ago at 170K miles. When I got it, it has a humming noise around the front left side ( around the left front tire to the transaxle area )if you on the pedal but it will disappear once your right foot of the pedal. It was just like that until my last travel where it became louder and now with scraping and grinding noise around the same area. My car and especially the steering wheel start to vibrate even at lower speed. Putting of the pedal only lessen the noise and vibration. I was at the last peg of my trip ( out from the highway ) so I slowly crawling home. At that time suddenly I have to manually shift all the gears and could not do auto shift anymore. Finally I got home, what a relief. I have another car so I just kind of ignore this van for awhile but this morning I tried to start and move it around the neighborhood street. It was shifting smoothly as before and the noise was not as bad as the last time and no vibration on the steering wheel. What happened? and how I fix it? Thanks to anyone who reply this question.

SOURCE: Noise (vibration) when turning right

That sounds like a left front wheel bearing gone bad My friend.. turning right transfers weight to the left side and it probably has a roar similar to a turbo fan jet.. Try it and lemmie know.. thank you

SOURCE: Toyota Highlander with loud humming noise

2002 Hylander 4cyl.
all power windows work from the driver's arm rest control however,
all of the other arm rest power window controls do not work separately
on their own.
checked all the fuses and they are ok.

Could be transmission. Or a plugged catalytic converter, or the rear differential. Does it get worse when warmed up? Is there grinding/unusual noises? Where does the sound come from? Try starting out with the transmission in first and manually shift up the gears as you drive. Does it seem to slip? I assume its an automatic. Depending on your level of experience, they can be complicated to replace yourself.

Check the front engine mount..If its bad it could make a noise while turning or reverse..Hold the car in gear with your foot on the brake and carefully raise the engine ..do it in both reverse or forward and look for excessive movement..

Rumbling & grinding under front end


Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

if you wanna change on your own it be cheap probably in the middle of 17 and 26 for timing belt so do not worry about expenses they need to change every 60k miles thats two thumbs up..also you might check your drive belt they tend to make noise when its worn or bearing on your alternator or power steering also you need to check power steering fluid if there low they tend to makes a grinding noise too..
