Sounds like you are having problems with your wheel bearing(s) and it/they need to be replaced. See if you can tell which area of the car the noise is coming from and you will find your culprit. Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!

What is the grinding noise on my 2003 Grand am front wheels, help please?


There are many things the grinding noise can be. I would start with the breaks though as that sounds like the most likely culprit. If they are grinding, odds are you have ruined your rotors and/or drums. This means that you are looking at about $50-$70 in new parts per wheel (Total of $200 to $280) to replace, assumming only the pads and rotors/drums needs to be replaced.

Please note that breaks can be a good DIY project, but this takes an intermediate skill level with some expereince. Some vehicles are easier than others. Drum style breaks can be especially tricky as they relie on a system of springs that can be challenging to work with. There is also a hydrulic system that can have issues. If you see break fluid when you take off the wheels and drums, you have much larger issues and I would recommend getting in touch with someone more qualified.

I have a 2000 chevy cavalier and there is this grinding noise in the front end. it sounds like its in the middle but the noise is in perfect rotation with the tires. it just started with grinding but now...


From what you described, it sounds like you may have a CV axle going bad. The tripods are located somewhat near the center of the vehicle, near the transmission, and the fact that it gets worse in turns helps to reinforce my guess. Try this. Go into a large parking lot where you can make a minimum radius turn ( with your wheel turned as hard as it will go.) Do a few circles in each direction. If the sound gets substantially worse while turning than it is while driving straight, this is a good indicator that your CV axle is going bad. If that's the case, don't delay in getting it repaired. If it goes out, it will leave you stranded.

My 2001 Chrysler Voyager shifts into neutral while driving


I doubt you going to get a code from the transmission. Im surprised that shop you have it taken to cant tell you what is the problems. If you have high miles as 100k chances are the tranny is worned and need service or replacing. Transmission rearly grind or make a grinding noise, the brakes will make the grinding noise due to the worned pad as metal rubbing on metal, have all breaks check. If the van is 5speed, yes I can see the tranny will make a grinding noise VS automatic transmission. I would take it to another shop and get another opinion or take it to the dealer which they usually charge 70-75 buck to have it diagnose. If tranny need replacing check ebay to junk yard, is lot cheaper and as good than having it rebuilt.

You can do this job your self with common tools. Auto zone carries the wheel bearing you need and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing the bearing. Here is a tip, to try to break the old wheel bearing from the axle. Just loosen the 4 bolts 3 mm that hold the bearing to the axle and put the wheel back on and drive the car back and forth a few times, hard on the brakes to break it free from the axle. Once the bearing breaks free from the axle, it should take you under 45 min to get the job done. Good luck and be safe.

Front drive train or axles?


Welcome to fixya

could be one of those but lets hope not it could also be the front bearings if it is the bearings it runs around 300 to fix if it is drive train or axles your talking a lot more money

OH check the break pads just thought of that if the pads are low it will make a noise to pull wheels off and check breaks first

hope this helps you out have a good day :)
