I'm 99% sure that it is the wheel bearing. That's the only thing that could give you the symptoms of a squealing noise and then the grinding when you are turning. If you aren't sure which side the noise is coming from, I would suggest you have someone else drive the car and stand outside to see which wheel it is coming from. Once you figure that out just replace that bearing, or bearings if it is coming from several, and you will be good as new. Let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for using FixYa!

Sounds like your power steering pump is going out.
It is the power steering pump working hard and making the belt slip, try not holding the steering wheel all the way till it stops or backing off a little when it is turned as far as it can go.
with a lil luck it may just need tightened( belt anyways) but with even more luck it could just need some fluid. sure thing it seems to be power steering.weather its bad or not depends on it the belt is tight and if its full on fluid.

Thanks

2003 Chevy Silverado is making a clunking noise, on and off sometime over bumps. Also a deep grinding type noise in the same location while driving not constant


Hello Karla,

It sounds like you may have a bearing or CV joint going out. Your vehicle will need to be jacked up and inspected. It may be more than one problem too. Its possible the dragging noise could be something between brake pads and rotor, but the grinding that comes and goes in reference to direction sounds like a bearing or joint. I would take it to a professional right away and ask for an estimate only, and then get other estimates from other shops as well. Good luck to you.

Noise on front driver side and i replaces rotors and brakes


may be the backing plate is hitting. or it may be the wheel bearing is bad. check by making turns and see if the noise goes away or starts grinding like a washing machine. IF grinding is worse replace wheel bearring.

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.

Vibration/Humming/Grinding noises when stopping or turning left.


when turning left vehicle distributes weight to right front wheel bearing causing load. since u describe a noise in right front while driving straight i would suspect failed right front wheel bearing. see if your noise changes/goes away while turning right that should tell u 4 sure
