SOURCE: Grinding noise in the left

grinding on front wheel is caused by 2 things. a bad or loose wheel bearing,or worn out brakes, have them both checked
You might also want to check the level of fluid in the power steering reservoir - low or lack of fluid will also cause a noise (although more of a whining than a grinding).

Find a shop with a 'rolling road' or 'electric chassis ears'.

Chassis ears are microphones you place under or around the car and drive it listening to each microphone to locate the noise.

Rolling road you can listen whilst going nowhere.

Sound like you have a collapsed engine mount allowing engine to rub somewhere.

My front passenger wheel makes a rubbing noise at 50 mph


You just need to have a mechanic or someone look at the front end. Has it been happening long enough to cause any odd tire wear on the tire? If the front end alignment is off, you could certainly get a lot more road noise, but even a badly worn tire would cause some noise.
If the tire is actually rubbing against something, and you hear it at 50 mph, that seems to indicate badly worn suspension parts- like ball joints or struts...so you should consider a good front end alignment shop and tell them the condition. They can check the tires and the front end as well. A reputable shop would check all that anyway, to make sure that the alignment job will actually keep the front end true.

I have a 93 Ford Explorer 4x4 sometimes while starting to drive in 2 wheel drive there is a lot of clunking noise coming from the front end and the only way to stop it is to go in reverse for about 10...


It sounds like your transfer case needs servicing. Drain the fluid & check for metal particles. Some of the older trucks required reversing to disengage the 4x4

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer XLT that has started to make a bad noise when the stairing wheel is turned and when backing up , it feels if the parking brake is on, took it to the dealer they had for a day...


sounds like tire rub issue, as inflating tire solved the issue for a short while possibly that the tires placed on vehicle maybe incorrect size width/height, check tire size, look in wheel well for areas of possible rubbing.

Noise coming from front of car


It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

Steering noise


The noise you are hearing is most likely from the tires. If you like the the tires try wheel spacers or if its a 4x4 try cranking the torsion bars, but make sure you do them equally
