There are several things that can do that. Have someone check the Emergency brake system behind the rear rotors. They are often missed by repairmen and when they fall apart inside the drum part of the rotor they will jam and grind. Also service regular brakes.

Your universal joints could be dry and failing. You could have a loose heat deflector or rear stabilizer bar dragging. Your exhaust system could be dragging.

My 2002 lincoln ls makes a loud grinding noise when i first start it. Then the noise goes away. Now my car won't even start.


Hi Nancy:
The first thing that I would be suspicious of would be the starter. What happens when you try to start the car? Does the starter turn over? Is there a clicking noise? Did the car run fine after starting with the grinding noise? If it did, then the grinding was probably associated with the starter. If you pull the starter and the little gear on the pointy end is all chewed up you'll be on your way to solving the problem. If you're lucky, a rebuilt starter will probably be most cost effective and hopefully (usually) the ring gear will be OK.
Hope this helps.

Why does the steering wheel locks when I try to make a left or right turn in my 2002 Lincoln LS? What is wrong when I hear a grinding noise coming from the engine when I try to make a turn?


the grinding noise is from the steering pump going into overload and the pressure relief valve is working. If you have recently worked on the pump or steering check that the hydraulic lines have correctly installed It appears that when turning right the steering is trying to turn left.

Our Lincoln LS has a higher noise level when driving at speeds over 50. A whining sound from the back seat- is there something wrong with the differential. We just changed the oil in the differential but...


If it is a whining noise and not a metallic grinding (such as a bearing noise) and the noise seems to change with a light change in load; IE- louder with maintaining speed on slight incline versus quiter on deceleration, then you are likely to be hearing a worn ring and pinion gear set. Changing the fluid will not affect this type of noise and if the old fluid was free of metallic debris, then you have time on your side to prepare for replacement of the ring and pinion. A great deal of customers are opting for a used differential which is usually a bit less expensive than rebuilding the one you have.

After starting up and putting in reverse it jerks and maks clanking noise 2000 lincoln ls v8 3.9


I would have to guess it is your rear u-joint is going to have to be replaced. Or your pinion in the rear end is loose or faulty.
