All your brake calipers are now damaged and its possible if you didnt drive it for very long this way in this condition the rotors can be turned down to within specs saving you lot of $$$$.

Sounds like your brake pads are gone and your riding on the rivets. Have your brakes looked at right away and have your power steering looked at too. If the fluid level keeps going down it's only a matter of time before you will need a new power steering pump.

Very loud noise coming from rear like metal on


Most likely it's your low brake pads indicator that is making the noise and they need to be replaced soon before rotor damage happens.

Have a '94 Acura Legend that is making a wierd noise(s). After starting engine, hot or cold, with foot on brake, shifting into any gear, after 2-3 seconds, I hear a noise that is similar to a person...


Check all the hoses on the engine for cracks and wear. If the car has a vacuum brake booster, it could be worn out. There is a large rubber diaphragm in it that can crack.

Whining noise while accelerating in 1st gear


Check the idler and tensioner pullys for your serpentine belt. I suspect the whining noise heard earlier was due to the fact one was getting a bit stiff or rough turning. When you gave it that extra fuel, the sudden load may have finished it off. Sometimes they lock up, and sometimes they fall apart. Check those items first.

Noisy brakes due to rust


Yes it is a regular problem because the squealing is caused by a scraper that tells you when your brake pads are worn and it is time for a brake job. (They must not want to do a brake job under their warranty) You'll have to push them harder for some satisfaction. Does this help you?

'96 Toyota 4-Runner makes a loud squealing noise and brake light


Sounds like one of the auxillary belts slipping it may just need tightening up. I think the 4-Runner has two belts one large and one for the steering pump

Loud noise sometimes ocurs when excelerating or braking. sounds like metal draging , but it is not.


Does it make a thudding sond on the shifter....Frist off is it 6-speed or auto, and is it a 5.7/z28/ss or base model...Could be rear tranny mount which is located on the crossmember of the car...If you put it in drive hold your foot firmly on the brake and accel, slowly only to about 2krpms, have a friend look under the middle of your car and watch for the trannie to buckle up towards the back half shaft.....Get back at me with this info..I own 7 camaros, i can def help you w/ this....
