Chain dragging / Change jingling sound from Driver Front Side

I've got a chain dragging or change jingling sound in the driver side front area of my car. It's an old ford station wagon and I pulled the wheel off today to have a look. Nothing looks out of place, the only thing I noticed was the bar that connects shock housing to the sway bar has bad bearings. I could twist it by hand no problem and grease was exposed. It doesn't seem to me that this is what's making the noise however because the sound doesnt really change when going around corners, or hitting bumps. Any ideas what this could be? My first thought was broken wheel bearing jingling around metal as the wheel turns, but I'm not sure.

Does this sound occur while th engine is running and the car is sitting still? Or only while driving? If so look at the exhaust pipe under the engine, there is a section that looks like flexible pipe, at either end there is a thin washer-like connector or fastner is it dangeling from the pipe, if so that is probably your noise. I had the same jingling noisre in mine and that was the problem, I just cut it off and the noise never came back. Hope this helps, let me know.

Jingling sound from front of engine


Don't worry about the sound, Find the gas leak. Fuel lines come in on the drivers side. Then you have the injectors. on the fuel rail. on the fuel rail there is a pressure regulator. All this needs checked. Fuel lines on the engine are metal. BUT coming up to the metal lines, they are plastic. LOOK for wet spots.. FIX them. The regulator is on the fuel rail/ with the injectors. LOOK for wet spot at these locations also... There are also other locations under the car to find gas leaks....Fix this first...

Ive replaced the cv shaft but the noise is still their...any ideas?


Have you checked the front wheel bearings? I've seen similar problems on several front wheel drive cars. On my first experience, we also started by changing the CV joints only to find it did not solve the problem. We then though it was a transmission problem.... wrong again. Finally checked the front wheel bearings (Both sides) and found the passenger side was making the noise. Bearing replaced (not cheap by the way) but solved the problem.

2006 ford explorer has a noise that you would swear it was a L/F wheel brg changed it and noise still the same took the old L/F brg and put it on the R/F still same noise??? any thoughts???


When checking to make sure noise is wheel bearings while driving vehicle at speed the noise is loudest (if possible) turn steering wheel back and forth enough to shift the weight of the vehicle from side to side and if it's a wheel bearing there should be quite a bit of difference in the noise.

If about the same noise check the wear pattern on the tires for flat spots or unusual wear pattern if there is rotate tires. If nothing still found jack up vehicle with all 4 tires of the ground. Use jack stands for this. Get some one in vehicle to run it at speed the noise develops, I use a long screw driver (2 feet long) as a stethoscope to find where noises come from. Try with and without 4 wheel drive if possible. Good luck cause noises can be a real pain in the b____.

I have a 1998 ford expedition with 4wd and it pulls to the right. I had the tires rotated and the wheels aligned twice. The problem remains.


You could be having uneven tires; front-brake dragging; broken or sagging springs. Have your front brakes checked.

Jingling noise? 1990 chevy k2500


If you had front disc brakes changed recently, then more than liklely someone forgot to put your anti rattle clip in with the installation. if you can stand the rattle it's not life threatning. if no brake job recently, then open the hood and look for something loose that would be rattling.
