This sounds like a engine bearing failed, at 185,000 this is very possible, the loud noise is not good, only a professional shop will be able to give you a complete diagnosis this requires a hands on look to see what broke.

Grinds when the car has been stalled for a bit and then started. Sounds like a metal scraping noise. Also when decelerating or reaching a stop it whines and towards the end if broken abruptly it does

The grinding noise when you are braking is worn out pads. Metal against metal is not good for your discs - replace the pads otherwise your up for machining of the discs or replacing. That noise on start-up is common with worn teeth on the fly wheel. The fly wheel will stop in "common" positions just how the momentum of the motor works and the teeth can wear out at these spots - sounds horrid but is not "unsafe" problem is one day you may not be able to start the car if the starter cannot engage the fly wheel to turn the motor over. This is where you hear of people turning the motor over a little by hand (they usually remove the stone plate from below the fly wheel to hand crank the engine) I don't recommend this practice probably better to price a replacement and while it is apart consider any other work eg. Clutch or minor seal leaks as it is not a small job to replace the flywheel.

One of three things is happening:

1. The starter or ignition solenoid is wearing out and while you, the truck's owner, have adapted to the 'trick' of making it start without difficulty without realizing it, whereas the other driver just tries to start it like any other vehicle...

2. The other driver subconsciously dislikes the truck and wants to replace it with something else, and in an act of unconscious passive-aggression is deliberately doing it wrong without realizing...


3. Your truck has become sentient and decided it likes you best. If this is the case, give it a name, pat it on the hood when it's driven a long way, remind it that it is a good truck, and a pretty truck, have its' oil changed extra regularly, clean the corrosion from the battery terminals with some vinegar and buy it a new starter and ignition solenoid for its' birthday. That should cheer it up and solve the problem.

Grinding noise in rear end when braking. Noise stops when fully braked but starts up for a short time when I accelerate.

This could be cause by your worn out pads. Some car would have thin metals on the pads that gets exposed when the pad is wearing out. The exposed metal then makes contact with the disk. If the pad is still in good condition you may want to inspect physically the wheel and its assemble for physical wear. It could also be caused by bearings starting to wear out or may just need a grease job.

My brakes makes noise when start the car and stops after sometime

What type of sound is it first off? It could just be brake dust. Alot of people dont know that brake pads have a little metal piece on them thats sort of like a sensor,when the pads wear down past a certain point the little metal piece starts to scrap the rotor which will make a screeching noise.The more the pad wears down the louder and more annoying the sound becomes.

2006 trailblazer 4x4 4.2, stalls while driving. Engine shuts down, whenever and wherever it feels like it. No pattern other than about every 2-5 miles, has worsened to this point over last 10 days....

ok well try this when it stalls see if spark is present and if it is not and it cools down and starts then you might need to replace ignition control module good luck

Grinding noise when backing up Jeep Liberty'06 only in the AM..

Have your rear brakes checked. It might be a brake wear indicator. Or your rear brakes are stuck on the brake drum.

Squeak in left front end

i would still bet youre dealing with worn brake pads, theres an off chance it has a bearing issue but brakes are first thought. maybe has caused them to wear down quicker ie. holding caliper, restricted flex hose, or even economy parts from previous repair.
