Question about 1998 Cadillac DeVille

1 Answer

When turning right in my 98 deville makes a ticking sort of metal on metal noise.

Whenever i turn right in my 98 deville it makes a ticking sort of metal on metal noise. It wont make it when it's hoisted up, and it has to be going over 10 mph. Have just replaced both cv axles and sway bars. I've asked all around and most say just drive it and if it gets worse then worry, but that noise doesn't sound good. PLEASE HELP!

Could be a brake pad, or a wheel bearing.
If the sound is a little "heavy", it could be the left CV joint.
My car made a clicking sound like that , it was a bent shield around the back of the brake rotors. I remember bending it when I changed a tire.
Also you could see if the brake "Wear indicator" could be hitting the rotor.
Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Was thinking it was maybe bearings. CV axles are both literally days old as are the sway bars. Made sure nothing is rubbing and such, everything is lubed good, i'm just stumped. A little sad too, I love this car."

Front tires make a metalic ticking noise when turning sharp


Sounds like a bad cv axle. This can be a very dangerous condition if the cv joint were to fail. Please have it checked out immediately.

There is a ticking noise when moving


The ticking noise could be coming from a CV joint. Does the ticking noise go away in reverse? A loose brake pad (Anti rattle clip missing or broken) will move back and forth in it's mounting, a warped rotor will enhance this effect, the ticking noise will come when the pads moves upward into it's mounting causing a metal on metal tick.
Does the ticking noise get louder when you are turning the vehicle? If it does this would indicate a worn CV joint.

Ticking noise underneath the car approximately midway.


The sound you hear is the metal parts of your exhaust system and catalytic converter cooling down.Some cars are louder than others but the sound is perfectly normal.

Why does car make constant ticking noise from metal expanding and contracting . Even makes ticking noise when running. Same noise you hear when you turn car off.


The exhaust system on your car is stainless steel, and it heats and cools quickly, there is nothing wrong with this. all your hearing is the joints in the exhaust system expanding and contracting. My 2007 impreza 2.5 does the same thing. And when you turn car off the system is cooling off and contracting.

Ticking noise while car is running or idling


maybe is the air compresor and that's the noise that you hearing. Put the air in off if the noise stop, your problem is the compresor.

Ticking noise


It is part of the waste gate just above the gas tank. It periodically checks for leaks and pressurizes and releases. Gives a ticking noise when it does this. Not a problem and GM is aware of this and said its normal on our cars.
