Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer
2000 blazer 91000 miles. uneven grinding noise while driving, always when going over 15 miles an hour and past 1500 rpm. it sounds like its coming from the front of the car, either from engine bay or under the car. engine runs fine and transmission shifts perfect. any ideas?
a) a brake disc shield is too close to the disc, and it's coming into contact in the circumstances you outline
b) pebbles stuck between the disc shield and the disk
c) dried out wheel bearings
d) worn Universal Joints in the drive shafts
e) worn A/C pump
f) worn alternator
g) worn water pump
Is the noise still present above 15 miles an hour and past 1500 rpm when the clutch is disengaged (i.e. gearbox in neutral?). The answer to this question may help you to pinpoint the source. I know it's stating the obvious but the fact that you're hearing a grinding sound means it's caused by something that is moving relative to something else. Again this should help narrow down the cause.

Common problem is left or right side hub bearing which are your front wheel bearings,just not serviceable only replaced as a unit ,a good test for that problem is to get up to speed of noise then bank car to left and right (where road conditions permit) and take note of noise if it changes either way you most likely have a bad bearing,banking car to left would lighten load on left if noise fades that would mean left side is most likely prob and same for banking right meaning possiable r/s bearing problem, to eliminate engine possibility just get up to speed then shift into N and let engine idle while going over 15 mph and see if noise changes.
