SOURCE: 2005 Kia Sorento gurgling noise behind dash

Check the water coolant level because some of the hot water goes into the heater radiator behind the dash. Seems you have air in the system.

SOURCE: Kia Sportage front wheel noise and vibrating

Sounds like a problem I had. Turned out to be the vacumn valve that locks the hubs when in 4wd. The car was not in 4wd but the hubs were always locked causing the wheels to vibrate and chatter especially when turning.

The weird thing is that teh Vibration and associated noise completely goes away in a left turn. Even a slight turn to the left causes the vibration to go away. any help is appreciated. thanks, Jim

SOURCE: How do I change the universal joint in a 2005

the drive shaft is fastened with just four bolts, you need to remove those bolts using a spanner or socket wrench so you could pulldown the shaft and you need to mark the shaft end where it was originally matched up because the shaft is perfectly balanced to avoid vibration while rotating. the universal joint comes with a circlip ring and you need to remove those so you could take out the old uni-joint...hope this helps..

I have a 1994 Chevrolet Silverado and and when I put it in 4 wheel drive it makes a sounds like something is dragging


It could be the transfer case that engages the front drive, the drive shaft universal joints to the front, the front differential, or the self-locking hubs. The hard part is to figure out where the sound is coming from because it only will make the noise when driving.
It would be really unsafe to jack up the whole vehicle to run it without wheels on the ground. Probably best to take it into a repair place that will give you a quote, they may accurately tell you what's wrong. you don't have to have it fixed there.

If you are trying to run it on dry pavement, then something will be dragging although it's unlikely you'll hear it. Virtually all part time 4 wheel drive systems (not to be confused with all wheel drive or full time 4 wheel drive) make the front wheels turn just a bit faster than the rear. You will also notice that the vehicle jerks going around short corners like at a stop sign. In both cases the wheels are fighting each other trying to go at different speeds.

Thre is a clicking noise coming from under car not top of engine.. also 2001 jeep grand cherokee blows cold air with heater on but is overheating at same time..


If the clicking noise happens when turning corners at low speed and it is front wheel drive then check out the CV joints for worn out.

Knocking Noise from Front End Toyota Corolla 2004


Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

TAPPING NOISE, NOW IT WON'T GO INTO GEAR WITHOUT LOUD GRINDING NOISE AND ACTS LIKE TRANSMISSION WON'T ENGAGE TO DRIVE


If it is an automatic transmission, first check the fluid level. If it is low, fill it up and try it again. If the level is fine, then there is a bigger issue and you should seek a professional's help.

Grating soung coming the front wheel


is it like a growling noise, or a metallic "metal on metal" noise, is it clicking? when do you hear it? Common for wheel bearings to go out on those in my experience. usually you can narrow it to a wheel bearing if when you sway the car, you hear a growling noise towards the heavy end of the car, meaning if you turn to the left, causing the car to naturally sway right, the right hand tire front or rear starts making noise, thats usually a wheel bearing. If its a clicking noise while cornering and especially when corning with acceleration, thats usually a CV axle. if its a metal on metal noise, that can be a brake pad worn to low, or even just a simple backing plate to the brake rotor touching and rubbing the rotor.

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.


Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

Wheel noise or roar in front end with increased road speed


THIS NOISE IS USUALLY THE HUB. HAVE SOMEONE GO WITH YOU ON A TEST DRIVE. GET THE ROARING TO HAPPEN AT ITS LOUDEST AND GENTLY SWERVE THE CAR LEFT AND RIGHT. DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU THINK BOTH HUBS ARE BAD. LIFT THE FRONT OF THE CAR AND PUT IT ON JACK STANDS. PULL OUTWARD ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TIRE WHILE PUSHING INWARD ON THE TOP OF THE WHEEL. IF THE WHEEL MOVES EXCESSIVELY YOU FOUND THE HUB THAT IS NOISY. USING A MECHANICS STETHOSCOPE YOU CAN SOMETIMES HEAR A ROARING TYPE NOISE ON THE BACKING PLATE SIDE OF THE HUB WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING AND THE TRANS IN GEAR. TRY NOT TO GET THE SPEED UP TOO FAR ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN HEAR THE NOISE AT LOW SPEED, YOU DON'T WANT TO VIBRATE OFF THE STANDS.
