I have the same problem
take the accessory drive belt off
its the belt that turn the power steering pump, alternator, and water pump
and i think you will find that there is a stationary pulley called and ldler pulley and the bearings for the idler pulley are probably shot.
the idler pulley with the new bearing cost me 65 dollars
and i would pick up a spare belt as well

Is it coming from your engine or your wheels? If it is the wheels then you need new brake pads and possibly new rotors. If it is coming from the engine than it may be your radiator or even your alternator. Is the car having any overheating problems? Is it having any problem starting? If it is the brakes/rotors it will cost about $150, radiator (depends) could be anywhere from $100 to $1,000, alternator about $350.

I have a 98 Chevy cavalier when I am driving up hill specially at low speed I hear a rumbling noise at the right side passengers side tire is this the axle or something else?


I had something like this happen similar with my girl friends car not to long ago. It was after she got her tires replaced I belive they messed up the rotors or something like that so they were grinding against the curometer. Idk if im getting the right words here, but its the circular part where the brake pad attaches to. We replaced the rotor and brake pads and then it ran just fine and didnt rumble or anything like that. So idk. That might be it im not sure. hope it helps.

Ive got a 2000 chevy cavalier that just started having a grinding noise in the front end. it only grinds when i turn the wheel slightly to the left when driving. if the steering wheen is centered it dont...


Sounds like there may be a problem with the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly easy to replace only takes about 30-45 min and about $55-125 in parts. Jack both front whels up and with it in drive turn wheels back and forth and listen to each side. I am pretty sure it is the left side but check both.

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.

Left Wheel Makes Funny Noise...


sounds like wheel bearings or 4wd might be stuck engaged... try cycling 4wd or checking grease packing first.

I have a 2002 chevy cavalier z22 standard tranny, 2.2l. Ive been getting this grinding noise in the low RPM'S of first and second gear, only when i keep it at 1200-1700 RPM's. The sound only comes in those...


I have a 2004 that did that, im sorry to say this but you are going to need a new transmission eather really soon or a lil ways down the road but you need a new one the problem is your syncronisers in your transmission are starting to go bad witch is what alows your gears to come together at the right timing now you can avoid grindin your gears by stayin out of the rpms that it grinds in eather high or low but eventually you will need a new transmission bc eventually all of your gears will begin to grind like that and then eventually you just wont even be able to get the car in gear not due to the clutch going bad but just bc the constant grindin of the gears will cause your gears in your transmission to go out completly
