A noise at the front wheels

The wheels make a noise and the truck feels like it is jumping when I turn slowly after I have riden the truck for a while (when it is cold it does it less). We took it to the shop they charges $1800 to replace the front rod but it did not fix the problem. We took it back but they did not figure out what was wrong they themsevels took it to the dealership and no one there knew what was the problem. I co-worker of mine suggested a sensor for the AWD system in the front wheels. Is there such a thing? how can it get fix? help please!!!!

The jumping is the transfer case, change the fluid and that should correct the problem, it may also be the cause of the noise.

Hello! I bought a 2002 Audi A6 quattro and recently when i was driving it i heard what seemed like a train/rough/grinding noise coming from the front end. Mostly from the drivers side. Im not sure what the...

Jack up the wheel and see if there is any side ways movement top and bottom. If so it will be wheel bearings. If not turn the wheel and feel for any roughness in the wheel turning. Turn the wheel in and out while spinning the wheel and see if there is anything wrong in noise and feel. If so it most probably be the cv joint. Drive slowly on full lock and listen for a clicking noise as this indicates a failing cv joint as well. You can get aftermarket wheel bearings as the bearing shop will probably have a listing for the bearings in the wheels and they will most likely be about 1/2 ice to genuine items even though they are the same bearing with out the audi name on the box.;

Clunking noise when turning steering wheel going slow around corner

A lot of these Chrysler Town and Country vans had issues with the front stabilizer bar end links, usually you wont feel them move if you try to move them by hand, but they will make an awful noise clunk noise when turning or going over bumps slowly, i would suggest replacing the end links and that should take car of your clunking issue. Also the front lower control arm bushings separate as well and can cause this noise as well.... but i would replace the end links as a first step and go from there.... Hope this helps..

Noise in front end when going straight or turning right. Noise stops when you turn left.

i would check the right front wheel bearing . Jack the right side up and feel the tire pull back and forth and see if the tire feels loose if it does the wheel bearing is junk. only other thing check the cvc axel.

There is a very loud humming noise coming from the front left tire! plz I await your reply. Thks.

You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop

Front wheel squeky

Had quite a few of them in which the ball joints were dry as they arent greasable therefore squeaked every time i turned....usually it was the lowers,just by chance i guess....would only be able to check it while lying underneath it and having someone turn the wheels for me slowly and carefully as to not pinch my arm etc.....unable to get the same noise if it was hoisted in the air as the weight and pressure is off it..just put my finger on the ball joint and you could feel the creak emmitting from it..

There is a grating feeling in the steering wheel when I turn the wheel. It was hardly noticeable at first but it is slowly getting worse. Could the road humps near where I live have knocked something loose...

Grating sounds like brakes, the brakes have shields at the front and they sometimes bend inwards contacting the brake disc, get under neath and ensure that nothing is touching the back side of the brake discs.

other thing it could be a wheel bearing on its way out although this is a constant noise like a berrrring noise.

if it is a knocking then that will be the ball joint, the other possiblity is bottom suspension arm bushes, these would cause this noise if bad enough, try pushing your foot against the front wheels facing forward with the wheels straight, if the wheel has excessive play either forward or back then thats the fault.

Hope this helps
