Question about 2004 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Vibration/Humming/Grinding noises when stopping or turning left.

Soon after I had my brakes and rotors replaced, I began having a lot of vibration and a loud grinding noise in the front right area of my Town & Country. Now, I have also started hearing a humming noise and vibration when I turn left. Any ideas?

    I only hear/feel it when I stop or turn left. I still have some humming when I turn right, but not the vibration and loud noises.

When turning left vehicle distributes weight to right front wheel bearing causing load. since u describe a noise in right front while driving straight i would suspect failed right front wheel bearing. see if your noise changes/goes away while turning right that should tell u 4 sure

I have a 2007 Pontiac Torrent FWD with a violent low speed vibration. we have replaced the lower control arm assembly and the hub bearings along with the brake pads and rotors.


Struts would not cause vibration problems, A CV joint could, turn your vehicle in a parking lot hard right, make a circle than turn left make a circle ,if you hear a noises you have a cv joint problem. If you feel vibration on the steering wheel its in the front, if you feel it in the seat its in the rear.
Tires out of round & Balance very common as well brake rotors cause vibrations.

I replaced my tierod on the passenger front.there is still some play in the left to right there is also a humming sound at speeds 40+mph. it's coming from the hub bearing or ball joint.


Any wear or play in a bush or rod usually gives a 'knock' or causes vibration, not a humming noise.
If there's play in the steering wheel that may be due to a worn steering rack and pinion.

A worn ball joint can cause a 'crack' noise and depending on the wear, vibration that will be felt through the steering wheel. A worn ball joint can also cause the car to pull to one side.

A humming noise suggests it is either a brake rotor/pad, or a worn driveshaft or wheel bearing.

There is a grinding noise from the front of the vehicle while driving. All new brakes. The wheel bearings have been checked and are fine.


Is it more like a vibration and humming, than grinding noise? If so it would be a bad engine or transmission mount. To check bearings while driving.. Find an empty parking lot, Make right and left turns/circles. Making a left, if the noise get loader, the right side bearing is bad. and vice versa. Do around 10 MPH while turning circles.

Vibration while braking


Rotors are probably warped and need to be rectified or replaced. When the brakes were replaced did the rotors get turned? If not need to resurface rotors

When im driving about 20 miles per hour on the drivers front there is a vibration and grinding sound what could be this problem


Lots of things can do this. Check your front hub bearings by jacking up the vehicle and turning the tire by hand. Or if you are using a commercial lift, let the wheels rotate with the engine running and the trans in gear.

Last week one of my clients had a similar problem. On his SUV, he changed the left front hub to no effect. He then changed the right hub to no effect. The problem was the front U-joint on the front driveshaft of the 4x4. It sounded like a left side noise but was actually coming from the center of the SUV and it vibrated and felt like a left side vibration.

Since Hub bearings are known to fail, they are worth checking. You do have other moving parts in the front drivetrain. A grinding sound can also generate from the rear Emergency brakes, as the shoes inside the rotors rust, the linings fall off and get eaten by the moving parts. Its also possible to have a floating front brake pad. with the loose pad separated from the metal backing and skipping on the side of the rotor. There is not enough room for the pad to fall out completely.

I hope my solution helps you find your problem.

Absolutely; wasn't positive until you mentioned the 'hum'. Bad bearings first warning sign is usually the humming noise before the vibration but since you have both, I'd be shocked if it weren't the bearinig, especially since you've got new rotors. In the past, a badly turned or warped rotor would mimic a bad bearing. Best of luck.

Check the front drive axles and boots. A bad cv (constant velocity) joint can cause this.
