Generally if this vehicle is equipped with a timing chain and gears that would be suspect...the chain/tensioners wearing out...possible water pump bushing but you should see a fan blade wobble or signs of coolant leaking from below...I have seen A/C compressor clutches coming apart that create one hell of a noise before they let loose.... even serpntine belt tensioners can have bearing problems and sound like hell. Good luck hope this helps!! John

SOURCE: grinding noise while driving

Probably a bad drive axle -- one or the other ends is worn. You can DIY for about $70-100, or a mechanic will charge about $100 for the labor.

When starting truck starter makes a grinding noise but stops after a second, how do I stop this


Grinding noises from the starter are usually caused by a defective starter drive gear and or damaged ring gear teeth. I would suggest removing the starter motor and inspect the starter drive gear as well as the teeth on the ring gear for damage and repair/replace as necessary

My 1991 honda accord is a stick shift and when i'm driving sometimes it sounds like something is grinding and a repair tech at AAMCO told me i needed a new slave cylinder. does this sound correct


well i hope he is.. cause there are many thing that will cause that, for example the grinding noise from the transmission is a broken gear in the Gear box. (transmission).. The only way to be sure is to actually observe it our selves which we cant. In this case i would advise you trust the tech and if needed get a second opinion. However if you can answer these question we should be able to help.

is there any other sounds or vibrations while driving ??
where is the sound coming from ?? (what part of the car like left side front wheel)..

does the rims get hot ??
is there a clacking sound while turning left or right hard.
is the noise constant and increases with speed ? (if its this one chances are its a wheel bearing)

I have a grinding sound in the front of my 1998 mountaineer, also i have my abs light on, and was told i have a bad hub and a bad differential


checking gear oil is not checking for a bad gear or bearing with the hub that will also pop the abs change the hub because if grinding is indeed the hub not long from total failure which can cause accident as well as serious injuries

The grinding noise means that the gear in the motor slides over the retracting shaft, you will probably need to get a new one.

Window won't go up. Grinding noise like grinding


The window motors for some reason have plastic gears. You can rebuild or replace them, it is just a pain. I've used Epoxy to fill in the gears where they attach, if you do that, it will last about a year, depending on how often you use it, but it only costs a couple bucks as opposed to 80-150 or more for motor.

My 95 toyota corolla makes grinding scraping noise when going uphill. It's coming from the right front of the car. Almost sounds like it's coming from the breaks or transmission. A mechanic thinks it could...


Bad motor mounts will not usually cause the kind of noise you describe they will cause more vibration to be felt at all times.

Sometimes the brake rotor dust cover plate can rub against the rotor and make a grinding/scraping sound. Raise the car, remove the wheel, and check the clearance between the dust cover and the rotor.

If your shocks/struts are bad the tire could be rubbing against the strut. Check the strut.

When i turn the key on it sounds like the car is already started


That grinding noise is the starter motor gear not meshing with the flywheel gear most probably caused by a worn starter motor gear or weak solenoid inside the stater motor. You'll have to replace the starter motor to repair the car.

Backing up very loud grinding like bearings


I would investigate the transfer case. By your description here it sounds as if the gears inside are worn and the drive chain inside is rubbing, causing the loud noise you hear.

Grind in Dana Differential


drain the fluid and refill with limited slip gear oil, add one bottle of friction modifier, ( this is very important) the noise is the clutches sticking.
