Question about 2003 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Smoke coming back passenger side tire smoking and made loud bang sound

While driving, I heard a loud bang noise but nothing felt wrong with the car so I continued driving, since I was almost home. When I got home and checked the car, inside the back passenger wheel was smoking. The wheel itself was not hot but smoke was coming out from inside the rim area. There are also burn marks all around the rim. Any ideas what might be wrong? Thank you.

My guess is the brake is being applied by the ABS system due to a leaking hydraulic valve in the hydraulic control section of the ABS module.

SOURCE: Front brakes replaced and then heard a loud bang

it sounds like one of the mounting bolts-pins came loose or was not fully tightened.
the grinding noise could have been on the wheel or rotor depending on what came loose. probably the bang means its missing altogether now, DANGEROUS! do not drive.
have a tow truck bring it back and be there to look when they inspect it....

SOURCE: very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only

you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.

Oil pressure gauge does not reach 40 PSI. Heard the sounds like a loud ticking coming from the engine on the passengers side. Then pressed on the gas peddle and it didn't want to add power. Ticking n


Not sure if there is a question here or not. If the pressure is always below 40 and you are hearing engine noise, chances are the oil pressure really is low. You could replace the sending unit or use a mechanical gauge to verify.

When i put the car in drive it just sits and theres this loud clunky/rattling revving sound?


the hum noise is a worn wheel bearing maybe from getting so hot it burnt the bearing. the rev and bang was your engine blowing. it will cost more money to fix these problems then just getting another car like this one.

2005 Subaru Legacy GT Manual Transmission - while on interstate, heard a noise and then felt like losing acceleration. Pulled off exit and lots of smoke coming out of exhaust. Not a head gasket - no...


sounds like something to do with your turbo.. could be loosing boost through an air leak etc... which is where the oil might also be coming from if there has been a blowout pressure goes out oil comes in causeing smoke and loss of acceleration.

I had front brakes and rotors replaced on my 2000 Durango. Within a week I heard something like a grind coming from the right front tire. And tonight I heard the same noise when braking but it was much...


sounds like something was jammed, or loose. I'd recommend taking it back to where the brakes were done and have them check it out in case something they did is messed up.

Front brakes replaced and then heard a loud bang


A noise like that in brakes are not something to guess at, or play around with. Call the place that did the brake job, and explain to them what happened. My guess is that they will come to you, or advise you to very carefully bring it to them for a look. Might have been a stone wedged or something but don't take the chance, have it looked at, a.s.a.p. and don't drive it if you don't have to until then.
