After driving for a long while, when i slow down i hear a horrible noise on the front end. it sound like rubbing and squeeling. my mechanic found blue gunk on the brake pads and said he put on new pads and rotors. it is still happening. when i let the call roll on the road, and the speed drops below 30 mph, at about 27 mph i start hearing the rubbing noise and it gets very, very loud when i lightly touch the brakes.

The blue gunk, might be grease from a torn axle boot, or a bad wheel bearing. Of course it's hard to know without looking, but I would be concerned of what the "blue" stuff was and where did it come from. If your mechanic replaced the pads and rotors, aside from a caliper problem, everything should be good. Have it looked at to see if anything is on them again.

Rubbing/grinding sound in front end/ drivetrain


from your description it is possible that the low brake pad warning tag is activated indicating tat the brake pads are worn out
it is a small tag that rubs on the disc just before the pads damage the rotor
as sound travels it could be a rear wheel with the problem
to check , take the vehicle to an accredited brake specialist shop and have the pad thickness checked
to be safe the thickness has to be 1/8 " or better

2002 impala front end noise when accelerating/decelerating


Black the rear wheels, put the car in neutral with the parking brake on, jack up the front end and spin the tires. Once you locate the source of the noise, you can pull the tire off and check the brake pads and rotors.

Squeeling noise in one of the wheels on a 2007 Dodge Durango.


If its a lite squeel and goes away when brakes are applied. Have you had front brakes put on recently. If you have and the rotors were not replaced and turned. Alot of mechanics don't do the final cross hatching on the rotors when they are done turning. This will barke in the pads wrong and cause this even with expensive pads. It will cause premature glazing and have a squeel that will drive you crazy.

I have a 99 jeep cherokee sport. When making a sharp turn to the left I hear a rubbing sound coming from the left front tire area. There is currently a light squealing noise when stopping. Are the two...


Probably. Check your brake rotor and caliper. The brake pads may be worn down enough to make that noise. Brake pads are around $29 bucks for a set. And rotors are about the same each at Autozone. I just did mine recently and I am VERY happy now that my 99 Jeep cherokee stops right and doesn't make the rubbing noise when cornering, and the squealing noise when stopping. There you go! Happy Motoring!

When making slow turns there is a grinding/rubbing noise coming from front end. Brakes were replaced. Mechanic is at a loss. could it be the u-joint?


This most likely means one of your front drive axles needs to be replaced. A U-joint would make noise going straight also. If I have helped leave me positive feedback. Thanks

Hearing noises from the driver side front and rear wheels


Jack up that side of the car and turn the wheels by hand to narrow down where the noise is comming from. You may have binding of brakes, if you are driving slow down the road and let the steering wheel go does the car pull to one side ? does it get worse if you touch the brake ? If it does, check the front.

'88 Volvo 740GLE won't get past 30 mph


Horrible squeal. If my 740 made a horrible squeal I would be upset also. These ideas - timing belt has somehow slipped out of time. Easy check. One of the other belts are slowing the engine any of them can squeal: The alternator belt The power steering belt The fan belt. Does the noise occur only when driving? Does the engine sound normal when revving in neutral? Does turning on the lights or a/c affect the noise? Does the power steering work when car is standing? Is the squeal heard when turning the wheels. A logical diagnosis will identify and eliminate these easy to fix problems.
