SOURCE: rattle steering wheel

Sounds like your intermediate steering shaft. Its the slip shaft that runs thru the firewall. They have a slip-stick condition that makes a horrible rattle that you can feel in the wheel. Its a pretty easy repair. Just make sure the steering wheel dosen't spin while you are changing it.

Good Luck

SOURCE: my car makes a scrapping and or grinding noise when driving and braking like i'm dragging something

Just by the information you put, I would say its your brakes. They are most likely worn out past the minimum wear (3mm). If its whenever you drive maybe you are dragging something? Your exhaust system supports may have failed, maybe something stuck in there and so you are dragging it along. Take a look underneath your car.

If the noise only happens when you brake then its gotta be a problem with your brakes. Sometimes rocks get stuck in between brake pads and rotors, this makes a very annoying squeeling sound until the rock comes loose and falls out. Another possibility, like I said earlier, is that your brake pads have worn out and is now metal on metal. I recommend you go to a shop and get your brakes checked. Brakes are a very important part of your vehicle, safety especially, so I don't recommend doing it yourself unless you know what you are doing.

Hope this helps.

sounds like you have a problem with one of your lines on your power steering or one of its components. the grinding noise could also be one of your pulleys that have gone bad too. check your steering assemby gear box.

SOURCE: grinding sound

It could be a wheel bearing or possibly the differential (4x4's). Check your brakes any way for safety's sake.

What is causing rattling grinding noise at idle especially in my 89 4.5 DeVille?

The technique I always used to identify where such a noise was coming from was to use a very long screwdriver (2 feet long), while the engine is running. CAREFULLY touch the screwdriver end to each pulley or other object under the hood, and put your ear to the handle. The device making the noise will become very clear.

It could be AC pump/clutch, alternator, water pump, power steering pump, etc.

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant

Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

I was driving my 1992 Ford Explorer when all of a sudden I heard lound grinding noises. It sounded like metal dragging on the ground mixed with grinding gears and metal under the truck. When I looked

sounds like possible brake job if the truck didn't drive differently or you can feel light vibrations on the steering wheel...either way could be costly depnding on if you know how to change your brakes yourself :)

Every time i press on my brakes it feels like it grinds on something and making it a loud grinding noise what can it be?

The brake pads sound worn and are grinding into the rotors due to low lining on them.Have the brake pads replaced, hopefully they did not ruin your rotors with grooves yet.Please let me know if this helps

Grinding while turning

shuddering while driving means you should have the front wheels rebalanced. as for the grinding that could be a wheel bearing or ball joint going bad
