Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

What could be the problem? I just started hearing a ticking sound, it seems to be coming from the driver side, and only when truck is in motion.

It sounds like it is directly proportional to has how fast the tires are rotating, so speeds up the faster the truck goes and slows down and eventually goes away when its not moving.

    Kind of reminds me of when kids put playing cards in their bike spokes- but it doesn't sound like cardboard- more like a thin piece of tin

    Its not a clicking or popping noise a joint makes and it's is just straight driving...I'm thinking its having to do with the wheel carriage or (I don't know what it is- but what ever the part is that makes your wheels rotate...i don't know if that is the differential- and not what controls the steering or the sway) ANY TAKERS? PLEASE!!

This sounds like you may have a CV joint going out if it gets worse when making a turn. It could also be a wheel bearing going out. If the vehicle is a 4WD vehicle it might be one of your hubs that the locking mechanism could be stuck or failing especially if you noticed the noise after a trip in mud or 4 wheeling. Hard to be certain though with the description you gave.

Most likely its the exhaust pipes or muffler making the sound. It should just be the metal expanding from the heat.

If you crawl under the car you should be able to hear the part better.

Screeching noise coming from driver side tire

The high pitch sound may come from the brake pads as metal parts hit the disc to signal the owner that it needs change. The metal parts gets exposed when the pads have worn out. The brake also has a hub to cover the disc. See if the metal plate is hitting it but this issue would appear when the wheels are in motion. Check if it is the belts, have the tension checked out. Other than that the bearings are the other items on your wheel that could cause a high pitched sound when you car is in motion.

Problem number one sounds like a dead battery to me. Problem with driver door is the cable in your window regulator is broken and bound up. Will need to replace the regulator. Passenger side window problem could be caused by a number of things... most common that come to mind are window guide not in correct position or one of the bolts that hold the window to the regulator has come loose.
