Noise while driving

When i am driving over 5mph i hear a scraping noise like something is rubbing. The noise is loud enough to attract attention of pedestrians. The noise eminates from the rear left corner of the car and is constant except at low speeds. It happens regardless of whether the brakes are applied or not. I have only driven 1 mile since it started making the noise. I did a visual inspection on all the wheels, they look ok and i can't see any obvious debris in the wheel or around the brake pads/discs that would cause the noise. The noise persists whether you drive straight, or turn right or left or over bumps etc. I have had no work or parts replaced since July last year so its not a product of work i have had done and i have had zero problems with the car which is 4 yrs old and done 30k miles. It's hard to describe the noise, its not a screeching sound much more dull than that with a low pitch that varies a little but not with speed / turns etc. Please help!!!

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.

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Camry Sportivo brakes making scraping sound.

Hi there,
when the noise is heard, try putting very slight pressure on the brake pedal and see if the noise goes away. If this is the case then definitely the brakes have to be removed and checked again. But if the noise is still present then it's something else doing that noise ans further investigations needs to be carried oput.
Cheers

SOURCE: Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.

Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

My 2000 Honda Odyssey (240k) made a loud clank noise when I went slowly over a speed bump. Now, when I turn the wheel-- either driving slowly or in park-- I hear and feel two or three rubbing or snapping...


The Hondas do have at the back suspension arms which are holding the wheels,Big suspension bushing,which when they snap off or cracked,are causing clank noises because are not holding enough the rear axle. on the other hand the vehicle loose the tracking as a result to cause wear and tear of the rear tires as well. Ask from your local mechanic to examine your car.

My 1984 mustang only has 60,000 miles. When i put my car into drive I hear a loud noise coming from the engine. it has enough oil, its not the brakes, or driving belt. the car drives fine, like nothin


Not much we can do without knowing where the noise is coming from. It could be something rubbing because the engine is shifting. It could be moving around when in drive such as a weak motor mount. Or the crankshaft could be moving under load.
You may need to have a friend watch the engine from the side to see if anything is changing when you go from park to drive. You can also use a section of hose as a hearing device to pinpoint where the sound is coming from.

Loud scraping noise when turning corner or backing up


The scraping noise may be a "tire rub," where one or both front tires are rubbing the wheel
wells during a turn (going forward or backing up).
Cause: possible ties size may be a little larger than the tires specified by Dodge for the vehicle.
Check: the driver's door panel, which will show manufacturer-recommended tire sizes and inflation pressures.

My break pads and roters are good....but once in a blue moon while driveing i hear a load knocking or rubbing of metal around the driver area around the wheel well, followed by a very loud screeching/metal...


perhaps a stone has lodged in the brake caliper, or the bolts holding the caliper are loose, also check wheel bearing, and wheel lugs, either way it shouldnt make that noise and will need someone to look at it, it should be easy to see what is scraping

When driving, especially when turning, my equinox maske a loud "scraping" noise much like that of the starter trying to engage. When starting the car, the same "scraping" noise is noticable. Any clues??


You may have a wheel bearing going out. There a gravel shield that sits real close to the brake rotors. If the bearing get excess play in it will allow the spindle to tilt and the rotor will rub on the gravel shield. Look for fine metal shavings by each wheel. Another possibility is you, or someone driving your vehicle, hit something on the road and bent one of the gravel shields so now it rubs on the rotor. But, being it gets worse when turning I'm betting on wheel bearing. If you see metal by one of the wheels, jack that wheel off the ground and see if you have noticable shake in the wheel, top to bottom.
