Rubbing noise from front of car

There is a rubbing noise from front end when accelerating from a complete stop till about 15 mph, tben it goes away. There is no slippage. We just had a brake job done complete with new rotors. it started about a week after thevbrake job. We took it back they said the brakes were fine. They said they saw vibrations on the tranny though, and that it might be the tranny carrier bearing. The dealer does not do repairs, they offered us a tranny forb$4000 whichnwe cant afford. Could tjis be a tranny problem or suspension?

It could be your brakes. Your brakes are always rubbing lightly. Pull your front wheels off one at a time, and feel the rotor, to see if there are any gouges in it. Do not do this after you have just driven a distance though, that brake will be hot. Check that first though. Are there any vibrations when you press the brake at slow or high speeds?

Rubbing noise in front end when car sits going over a dip, also when engine is braking, noise comes and goes


most likely you will find that there is a plastic gard up above the tyre. if it has come lose then sometimes one end of it can flop down and rub aainst the tyre. this will usually happen when you go through a dip because the suspension let the tyre go closer to the gard at the same time the plastic bit hangs lower as the car goes through the dip. when my car did this I also found that when I tok my foot off the accelerator the front of the car would drop down causing the suspension to do the same thing as when it goes through a dip. also some corners and and uneven roads do the same thing.

Grinding noise....sounds like metal


Check the disk brake pads. At slower speeds you can hear them squeak because there is less wind and road noise. The other possibility could be a bad u joint at the ends of the axle half shafts on the front differential. Check both. I really doubt it is the transfer case. You transfer case is engaged all the time. The axle is locked and engaged when you flip the lever by a vacuum motor on the axle shaft on the differential.

Front end rubbing or grinding noise but goes away


It could be a number of things, but a common problem with this car is rusty pins in the front end.  This is louder when turning.  There was a bulletin issued about it.

Whining sound from front passenger side.


Check the condition of front disc brake pads, if they are in need of replacement a preset little metal arm starts rubbing the discs and will make a whining noise. It doesn't do any damage but it's irritating to listen to.

98 Chevy Lumina has front end noise (rumble) from 10 mph and above. It gets increasingly louder as you accelerate. It does not change by coasting or applying the brakes. Also does it in reverse but not...


I may be a wheel bearing. Try shifting the weight of the car on the front tires by turning the wheelslightly while driving about 30 MPH. Don't turn enough to change lanes, just enough to put the load on the outside bearing. It may quiet down in one direction. The failed bearing is generally the side that you turned to in order to make the noise go away. Say the noise goes away when you steer to the right, the failed bearing is usually the right one.

You can also check for play by jacking up the car and shaking the tire. There should be no play.
