SOURCE: Clunk noise from rear of truck

How about the U joint? If it's shot, you will hear a clunk when u start up. You probably already know, but jack up the back of the truck (both wheels off the ground) make sure u blocked front wheels front and back so it can't roll, use jack stands so u don't get squished, truck in neutral, e- brake off, climb under, grab driveshaft and twist back and forth to see if there is slop or play in the rear universal joint. Let me know what u find. Good Luck, and don't get squished (or squashed). countrycurt0

SOURCE: right rear wheel locking up

okay you had brake work done!!! "THINKING" that was the problem originally right rear wheel locking up! okay,,, so doing brakes has not solved your problem! I would maybe look into rear end bearing??? do you have any load road noise from rear and do you have rear end fluid in differential? question to you was the baking plate ""WET"" looked damp? or moister get at it!??? seal might have leaked all fluid out??? all the above would be good place to start! good luck I hope this info helps you out.Happy new year.

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

Sounds like rubbing or grinding, a constant on/off as if the drum were warped


sound like something catching on the wheel or something in the tyre, if it was a bearing it would rubbing sound constant, could be the splash guard catching, any accident can cause movement and could catch, jack the wheel up and spin it look in the tread, test bearing hands 12 to 6 and 3 to 9 and wiggle the wheel any excessive movement it could be the bearing or the lower ball joint. you need a 10mm gap disc and splash guard, if the gap is too small bent it back. .

Rumbleing noise from drivers rear wheel. makes noise when I turn right but goes away when on smooth road or turning left. Nothing looks out of place. Suggestions?


Sounds like a bad wheel bearing. You should be able to jack up the rear wheels and spin them by hand. if you hear a grown or the wheels are loose than you likely have a bad bearing.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

Noise coming from rear passenger side wheel


Could be a bad wheel bearing or defective brake components. Jack the wheel up, spin it, and listen for the noise. If a 'scraping' sound, it is likely brakes. If more of a rumbling, grinding sound, then check the bearings. These are a greased-for-life bearings, so replacement is the only option. Hope this helps!

I have a 95 honda civic 2dr coup. when ever the car is in motion i hear squeeking/ grinding from the rear breaks. I don't know what could keep causing this. I just replaced the rear break pads, drum...


you may need a hub bearing. do you know which side? they're relatively easy to check; just jack up rear of car, release e-brake and rotate each wheel, listening for any noise or rumble; another way is to place your hand on the coil spring while spinning the wheel, as any rumbling that can't be heard will be felt in the spring. hope this helps.

Right front wheel is making a loud continuous noise while driving


well 1st i would jack up the vehicle and remove the tire to see what is loose before further damage occurs ,could be many things from the description anything from a wheel bearing ,tie-rod end, axle ,loose caliper to ball joint brakes etc...if its a grinding sound or a thumping sound truly its hard to say without further description , however as i said examination will possibly prevent further damage

Rumbling & grinding under front end


Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

2001 Sebring LXI convertable. Loud rumbling noise that increases as accelerating increases. Sounds like a rumble strip on the highway. I changed the tires with no change in the noise.


Bad hub bearing. Drive the car on a straght EMPTY road .@30 mph or when noise is audible, **** the wheel left than right (similar to a race car warming. tires) and listen if there is a change in the sound if so its a front bearing if not it should be a rear bearing .Jack the rear of the vehicle up and spin the tire holding onto the strut. Feel and listen for a vibration or noise. This should pinpoint that elusive noise.Let me know Good hunting
