I have a 2002 Kia Spectra also - I'm looking into replacing the rubber bushings that mount the power steering rack to the car. New tires & an alignment & I'm hoping I fix the rattling noise.

A few reasons but check the anti-sway bar bushings--upper/lower control arm bushings they are the usual areas where most squeaks come from

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

Loud suspension noise coming from drivers side front


Dry Joint or Bushing--Will have to be checked by good front end shop or good lube shop with drive on rack or pit to duplicate and locate.

Have a 1997 Mountaineer a the front makes this loud squeaking sound when turning/running over speed bumps or any time front suspension is working


It can be bushings in the front sway rods or the control arms. The tie-rod ends or even ball-joint sockets can make noise if they are dry.

Squeak suspension


As well, check Stabilizer bar across front from side to side. Those bushings have been known for drying out and causing this sound as well.

Squeking sound and loud clunking sound when i accelerate the gas pedal. sounds like it's coming from the front driver side wheel.


not enough info for diagnosis, Try putting bar soap and check tension of fanbelts for squeaking noise of the belts as a cause. The clunk maybe worn or damaged suspension components, cv joints or even worn or broken motor mounts. Start with these items...

I have a 2002 kia spectra i was wondering if i needed the ac belt replaced since has been making this squeaking noise whenever i turn on the air conditioner it has been going on almost about a month know...


Not sure how old the belts on your car are but a loose or worn belt will do exactly what you are explaining. You can inspect the belt for cracks and see if it needs adjusting or replacing.

My Heater Only works on high when it does work the belt squeaks


Sounds like the blower motor is going out. and need full voltage to run. Are you might have leaves or trash in the duct work causing to motor to drag at low speeds, and making it make the noise that it is making.
