Had the same problem on my 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe and I made a video on the symptom, what was causing it and how to fix it. Recommend you get it fixed as soon as you can.

Sounds like your brake pads are worn, the noise you hear is the sensor on the brake pads, letting you know you need brake pads, when you stat to hear the noise, it gives you about two weeks before it starts to damage your brake rotor's.

The whole body of the car vibrate, when I drive high speed and only when I touch the break, also I can not stop the car in a place where I need. what is the problem?


You have break issues, possibly a warped rotor, a bad caliper. From your description it sounds like your braking distance is very long compared to normal. A clogged or bad brake line on one side will do this.

Y my breaks make noise on the rear of my g35 2004


It's most probably the wear indicators on the brake pads. They make an irritating low pitched intermittent squeal or groan each time they contact the turning rotor. The noise goes away when you step on the brakes. Check the pad wear by pulling off a wheel and looking through the slot on the circumference of the caliper. You should have even wear on both pads, and at least an eighth of an inch of pad left. If not even you'll need to pull the caliper, and clean and lube the pins it slides on. If worn or uneven, replace them; it doesn't pay to try and wait for pads to wear down any farther, because you'll probably end up scoring the rotor.

You have a leaking power brake vacuum (this is what you hear) operated power booster. Go to this link to read the procedure of removing and pacing the power brake vacuum booster

1995 GMC SONOMA makes a loud sqeaking noise when i take off in the first to third gear, after third gear it stops, but when i get to a stop sighn it starts all back over, loud noise.


This type of noise is likely to be a universal joint that is worn out in the drive line. have a shop put it on a lift and inspect the joints.

My clutch works sometimes and sometimes it don't. I was driving came to a stop, tried to go it sounded like the clutch popped out of gear or something broke. My car wouldn't go so I got towed. but...


A clutch that's failing doesn't behaves like that - it slowly starts slipping until it fails completely and definitely. If it would break suddenly (like when the pressure plate would snap) the noise and the vibrations it would generate would be unbearable.
No, in your case something is failing inside the transmission/gearbox - most likely in the command forks and their locking pins. The gearbox will have to taken off the car and dismantled to investigate and fix that, and it will be expensive.

Hello first if you can'tell by the wording of the question I am about to ask I am a woman.. I have a 97 Neon and recently my car started making a noise now what I do know about neons is that the brakes...


Sounds like you know cars better than many others:) How old are your front brakes? Yes new brakes can make noise on any car if cheap parts or incomplete parts are used...Your brakes are actually designed to make noise when they are not right:) The squeal can be the front pads are worn down to the safety sensor...causing a grinding sound that comes and goes...as they continue to wear, they will squeal more frequently. Also as they become dirty...(bad weather) the dirt trapped on the pad to rotor contact area causes this same sound...sometimes a good automatic car wash can clear this up...as the rotors are wearing they can also generate noise, and vibration when you are stopping...The front brake pads and rotors are not complicated to change on your Neon...If you decide to replace the pads...the quietest and cleanest are the ceramic pads...These are available at most parts stores for good prices. Hope this helps:)

06 Camry, new breaks/rotars now sounds like metal and grinding.


First, if the brakes are stopping the car OK. Check that the metal shields behind the rotors are not touching the rotors...that can make terrible noise though it's not serious and is easily corrected by bending. If that is not the problem, bring it back to whoever did the work immediately!!!
I'd much rather see a car not starting than one that can't stop...Obviously dangerous and important not to delay having looked at!
