Question about 1994 Toyota Tercel

1 Answer

My '94 Tercel is a manual, and I have noticed a grinding sound when I am driving. at first I thought it was the bearings in the wheels (I had that issue a few years ago and got it fixed) but I checked it out and the wheels are still completely fine. I am now thinking it may be my Transmission, and a bearing in there? the grind sound repeats faster as I drive faster. any suggestions on what I should do about this?

SOURCE: Grinding noise in front wheel

Most likely bad wheel bearing. If you have ABS then you may need to get the bearing assembly that has the ABS ring on it if it comes as an assembly.

SOURCE: I think I have a bad front wheel bearing. There is

yes sounds like a wheel bearing needs replaced look inside the wheel at the hub see if you see greese around it any greese means needs replaced make sure do it soon cause wheel bearing will let the tire fly off hope this helps best way to check these is jack up one wheel grab tire and wiggle it up and down and if any movement needs replacement dangerous can wiggle it side to side too hope this helps

What makes my 2002 Pontiac Firebird grind when driving and/or turning?

Sounds like a wheel bearing. Jack up front end and spin wheels by hand and listen for grind. Same for rear wheels. Make sure brake linings are good all around. Do the swerve test. Drive down road bout 40mph and swerve moderately one side to other. If noise gets louder with weight shifted to one side more than other its most likely a wheel bearing.

Grinding noise when accelerating. I drive a 1994 Toyota Tercel automatic, and last night I was cruising the highway at about 75 when my left front tire made a slipping sound, and after that I noticed a...

It sounds more like your wheel bearing. If you jack the car up in the front grab the tire at 12 and 6 and try to wiggle it. If there is movement that will prove to be your wheel bearing or your ball joint. If you have someone look under the car at the ball joint while you do it, you can single out the ball joint and tell if all the play is in your wheel bearing. Usually CV shafts are pretty resilliant, unless they click when you turn the teeth in them should be ok. They will whistle thought if there is no grease in the boot. IF one of your boots are torn and the grease is gone then you can look at the CV shaft. But as far as grinding that is something thats broken or lack of lubrication. Check the CV, but be sure to check the wheel bearing, and make sure the brakes are ok. Unfortunately without being there it makes it a little difficult to be positive. Thanks.

It shouldn't fall apart if you remove the tire and if it does you should be thankful you didn't drive it to the shop, jack that side of the vehicle up and then rock the tire from the top and bottom, sounds like you may have a bad wheel bearing, the grinding could be the bearing or it could be the rear drum dragging on the brakes or both. If the wheel has excessive wobble when rocked it is probably the wheel bearing.
