I have an intermittant grinding on the front of my 2000 Kia when I go over bumps. the wheel bearings were already replaced because of this, but the grinding continues.


It seems as though you have changed everything.

A grinding noise is associated with something turning or rubbing against something. The only other thing that springs to mind are the drive shafts, which have splined ends. The link below will show you generic images of driveshafts
kia drive joints Google Search

Each end of the drive shaft is splined. One end fits into the gearbox and the other end attaches to the road hub of the road wheel.

It's usually the hub (universal joint that allows the wheel to turn)/ wheel end of the drive shaft that wears. It may be that the grinding noise has been more pronounced when turning? And the grinding noise is coming from just one side?

A new drive shaft isn't cheap although second hand ones are readily available. replacing a driveshaft isn't a particularly difficult job.

However, it may be an idea to get somebody to remove the brake calliper/rotor/ driveshaft hub and inspect the hub/splined end of the drivehaft. What you're looking for is worn, broken or chipped splines. If all seems okay try cleaning and repacking with driveshaft grease. It's probably the hub - the bit that allows the wheel to turn - as opposed to the splines -there's bearings inside that hub (also known as a universal joint). There's no real way of examining that hub other than replacing the driveshaft

1993 gmc Sierra driveshaft


Be careful with recovered units. make bloody sure that it has no kinks and not bent - look down the shaft and turn it. If the last one fell out, sounds like the previous joker used one that was too short different models of the same marque can have different lengths.

1988 silverado will not go into drive


Probably broke your U-Joints on your driveshaft, preventing the rear wheels from turning. Your driveshaft might have disengaged from your differential too. check underneath concentrating on the driveshaft and differential

REPEATLY worn out carrier bearing on my 2001 GMC Sonoma extended cab ( 4.3 , 4speed auto 2wd) what could be the cause of this even after I've had it rebalanced?


  • If the bearing fails and seizes up, the rubber will be torn away from the bearing. The seized bearing can tear away the rubber mount that supports the outside of it allowing the bearing to rotate with the driveshaft. This allows the driveshaft to wobble up and down causing a vibration.
  • The rubber can also deteriorate due to age or contamination with oil. The driveshaft will operate at the wrong angle and vibration or noise will result. The vibration occurs most often during hard acceleration.
  • A worn center support bearing can cause a whining sound that varies with vehicle speed. The noise is constant in pitch, rather than changing or intermittent like U-joint noise.
  • If the truck has been raised , the alignment of the drive shaft will also change, A damaged driveshaft can exhibit a variety of symptoms. A clunk that is heard when the transmission is shifted into gear is the most obvious. You can also encounter unusual noise, roughness, or vibration.
    NOTE The engine, torque converter and driveshaft change in frequency as rpm changes. A rebuilt torque converter is often the cause of a vibration that is rpm-related.

    To help differentiate a potential drivetrain problem from other common sources of noise or vibration, it is important to note the speed and driving conditions at which the problem occurs. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to accurately pinpoint drivetrain problems with only a road test. Expand the undercar investigation by putting the vehicle up on the lift, where it is possible to get a good view of what is going on underneath.

    • Check the companion flange, carrier bearing, pinion shaft seal, and pinion bearing, transmission's extension housing seal and bushing, and the u-joints.
    • Check the driveshaft for runout, or the amount that a part wobbles up and down or side to side when it is in motion.

Rear outputshaft on my 1988 ford bronco 2 broke off and driveline fell what do i do?


Well, if it broke off from the universal joint, replace the u joint. If it broke from the driveshaft itself, replace the driveshaft, or find a pro welder to weld it for you.

2005 Toyota Corolla - steering column crunches


the reason why your hearing this noise is because your CV joints on your car is bad. CV joints go bad when the CV boots have a rip or a tear in them and little pebbles and debree from the road get into the bearings of your axle. Dont worry its not like this big expensive ordeal. What I do suggest is dont even ask about replacing the CV joints because it usually costs the same or even more than just replacing the axles. I know it sounds horrible expencive but its not. When you take your car in tell them you want to replace your front right and left CV axles, because there are two of them in the front. Most people think you only have 1 axle in the front but you technically have two. I find the cheapest way to do it is ordering the axles online. Then finding a job with the cheapest labor rate to put them on.

Go to www.autopartswarehouse.com. Select the year, make and model of the car. Then scroll down to the Driveshaft and Axle section and click on Axle Assembly and order the parts from there. I made it a little easier on you, I already looked it up for you and the price

right axle is $99.95
left axle is $99.95

Now you say you get the crunching when you turn left and right so you will need both the left and right axles. Remember that the longer you take to replace them, that crunching noise will continue to get louder and louder

Power window inop


The plastic strip in the window regulator track broke. It is replaceable by a qualified tech or if you are pretty handy. you can go to the dealer and get the strip. remove the door inner panel and expose the regulator and window by removing the clear plastic (put this back in when reassembling or you will hear alot of road noise and have trouble keeping heat in in the winter). if you can't get the part you can at least out the mindow up now and wedge something in it so you can get somewhere at least if it's raining out. When you get the parts from the dealer they can show you how it goes in as it is hard to explain but I will if you need me to. Good luck.
