Question about 2001 Dodge Durango

2 Answers

I have a 2001 Dodge durango SLT. I am hearing a noise that appears to be coming from the rear, but can not pin point the exact location. The noise sounds like an object (not metal) touches a moving object. When the car is in park, it did not sound, but when the car starts moving, the sound can be hear louder and faster dependent on the speed of the car. I have check/replaced the rear brake shoes and turn the drum. The sound is still there. What other possibilities should i be looking for? (Sorry for the long explanation) Thanks, Ed

    Hello Peterad,



    I've replaced my rear shoes and the drum with the new ones but the noise is still there. It sounded like a humming noise and it is dependent on the speed of the car. listening to it from the 3rd row of the car, it sounded like it is coming from the middle between the two rear wheel (i think).

Hi, I not sure I can tell you what the noise is. I had a similar problem and I will tell you how I solve it.
I first try to identify which side the sound is coming from. I did this by taking the van out early in the morning when the traffic is less. Once I identify which side I jack up the wheel a little off the ground so I can turn the tire. I spin it by hand and listen, I can hear it. So I took it to a brake shop and they look at it and he said the he can replace the shoe and turn the drum. He is not sure why it is rubbing.
So I took it to the dealer he said that he have to replace the brake and turn the drum.
Before I sign the paper for him to start, I asked him to write my complain on it and his solution and I told him I will not accept the job as complete unless the noise is gone.
I took the van in and at the end of the day I call he did not finish.
At the end of the second day he told he had to call the factory.
On the 3 day he finally fix it, he replace the shoes, spring and a new drum.
He wrote on the receipt that he turn the old drum but problem persisted so he had to replaced it.
It is 2 years now the noise is gone.
I hope this help you because you problem sound similar.

Have you checked the condition of your brake pads? If lining is worn off and you're getting metal to metal contact between the pads and rotor, it will make a similar "roaring" sound.
