Could be engine related or driveline related. Do you only hear the noise when the car is driving down the road? Or does it also
happen when the engine is running and the vehicle is in park?

SOURCE: 2004 GMC Yukon Denali Awd humming sound in front of truck

The Denali's are really susceptible to front dif. wear and failure. Because it is AWD, the front dif is always working unlike a 4WD. GM, in order to lighten up the front end built the front dif in aluminum. If it was the same as the rear, it would be bullet proof, but much heavier. After about 80,000 miles it is common to have bearings failing. Remove the drain plug which happens to be magnetic. You may see more than just the normal fine filings. You will likely see larger chunks of metal some of which is not even magnetic but will drain out with the oil. You are likely looking at a $1500 rebuild. It will get much louder and run for a long time before it really goes south.

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan spare tire won't come

Raise it back up, the cable has a small end that must go up into the bracket to release the lock. With the weight of the tire on the cable the lock will release. You may need to kick the tire a few times to make sure it is hanging and not stuck. When it comes down, you'll se how it works (really dumb design) I had one where after lowering the tire to check the pressure, it would not go all the way back up. There is a grooved pulley that pulls the cable up, and if the cable jumps a groove, it will not pull the tire all the way up. The only way I got it back up was to cut a window on the side of the housing and reset the cable and wound it back 1/2 way.

In my 2004 dodge grand caravan something is ticking constantly as we drive and slow down. What is it?

You're going to have to try to locate it yourself. Lay on the ground next to it as someone drives real slow to see if you can hear where it's coming from. Take it to station where they can put it up on a lift. Could be anything from debris to something broken.

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.

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.

When driving there is a noise it gets faster as I speed up and slows down when I slow down does not do it when the car is idling. could this be a problem with the speedometer

A worn out wheel bearing will make a very loud moaning sound while at high speeds. Also try inspecting all of your tires, because a defective tire can cause similar symptoms.

1997 dodage grand caravan sport, when shifting from park to drive it makes a ticking noise, do you know what this could be? the car shifts fine and runs fine 126,000 miles.

The electronic shift solenoids in those transmissions make a ticking noise when shifting, same as when you slow down and stop, you will hear it as well, if it's quiet and your window is down. My guess is what your hearing is normal but if worried, stop at any reputable mechanic shop, or dealer and they will confirm it, free of charge.

Clicking noise seemingly coming from front driver's side tire. When going really slow, you can hear an alomost spring-like noise

Good morning! If you vehicle is equipped with center caps or hub caps remove them all and drive vehicle to see if noise is still present. Had a few problem hubcaps on these. Your local salvage yard should have these if noise goes away with hubcap removal. Have a great day!
