Also have your motor mounts checked. I just had to replace 2 of mine.
There are 3 total and one is located on the driver's side fairly close to where the transmission drive to the engine is located? my other mount deteriorated
after a long time of oil slowly dripping on it !!! (can you say duh?)

    I also replaced the upper and lower passenger side mounter mounts and the engin still moves alot when put in drive or reverse. Would the 3rd one be the transmission mount?.

    Yes, I'm not a mechanic, but the one that my mechanic pointed to that was closest to the trans was on the driver's side.

Check the under fender. Sometimes the black plastic will come loose around the wheel area. Turn your wheels to the left and see if the tire are rubbing close to any part of the fender area.

I have a 2000 chevy cavalier and there is this grinding noise in the front end. it sounds like its in the middle but the noise is in perfect rotation with the tires. it just started with grinding but now...


From what you described, it sounds like you may have a CV axle going bad. The tripods are located somewhat near the center of the vehicle, near the transmission, and the fact that it gets worse in turns helps to reinforce my guess. Try this. Go into a large parking lot where you can make a minimum radius turn ( with your wheel turned as hard as it will go.) Do a few circles in each direction. If the sound gets substantially worse while turning than it is while driving straight, this is a good indicator that your CV axle is going bad. If that's the case, don't delay in getting it repaired. If it goes out, it will leave you stranded.

2000 Chevy Cavalier making a noise when air is shut off


This problem sounds like the aircompressor pully, the bearing is shot.
With the engine running and the air conditioner off there is a grinding noise, look at the compressor pully, does it wobble? Then turn on the air conditioner and the noise stops, look at the compressor pully again, the wobble stops? If so that's the problem.

Sounds like there may be a problem with the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly easy to replace only takes about 30-45 min and about $55-125 in parts. Jack both front whels up and with it in drive turn wheels back and forth and listen to each side. I am pretty sure it is the left side but check both.

Rhythmic grinding noise front end - 98 chevy astro AWD


Could be low on oil, trans doesnt have fluid, wheel bearings are gone, or could be something stuck under the vehicle and either the tires or the drive axle is rubbing against it.

Rumbling & grinding under front end


Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.
