IT SOUNDS LIKE THE IAC VALE OR IDLE AIR CONTROL VALVE IS BAD, WHAT YOU CAN DO IS TAP ON THE VALVE. IT IS LOCATED ON THE INTAKE RIGHT BEHIND THE THROTTLE BODY, JUST TAP ON THE SILVER PART WITH THE BACK OF A SCREW DRIVER A COUPLE OF TIMES. THIS SHOULD UNSTICK THE VALVE AND YOUR TRIBUTE SHOULD RUN. THEN IT IS JUST A MATTER OF REPLACING THE VALVE. YOU CAN GET THEM FROM ANY AUTO PARTS HOUSE.

If brake pads are replaced.Still check the calipers,also check the nut holding the caliper,if that is got loose or its out then this can cause such grinding noise.Also get the brake pad fitting rechecked.If that fitting is loose it can cause the noise.But if brake-pads including rotors and calipers checked out ok then the problem is related either to the axle or the tie rods.
Also check the metal thin bracket that hold the brake pads in place. This bracket is has small tabs on it. If one of the tabs breaks off and the pad gets misaligned and causes a squeal and a popping noise whenever you slow down the car or apply break.
This should help.thanks.Helpmech.
