The squealing sound is an alert for you to know that your brakes are going low and that they need to be changed asap...
and the pop sound might just be from the rotors are wearing out...or they are bent...
Good Luck!

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

I changed all 4 brakes on my dodge stratus and since there has been a loud squealing noise when I brake. I dont hear it when im in reverse. Its very loud when turning and braking


Most new cars come with ceramic disc brake pads to reduce noise. Aftermarket brake pads, depending upon materials in them, can be prone to squealing. Some pads come with adhesive shims that are designed to absorb vibration and reduce or stop squeal. There is also a compound you can but to put on the back of the pads to do the same thing when you install. Sometimes the noise will go away once the pads have had a chance to settle in .Some are just ornery and won't shut up.

Tps on nissan quest makes loud noise when accelerates


As I look at your letter, which is very good, I might add, here are the few things that occurred to me.
The "loud squealing" should be a belt.
You have one or several belts, and if they get loose, or are worn out ( that includes the belt rubber getting old and hard) they will squeal like that.
However, the squealing also may be coming from one of the pulleys the drive belt or belts are attempting to turn.
If you have a bad bearing in one of the pulleys, you can get that loud sound like " a train".
If you are really careful, a "mechanic's stethoscope" might help you.
That is to take a really long screwdriver, and put the tip on each of the pumps or base of each pulley, and the handle end to your ear, and you can hear the bad bearing "scream" with the engine running.
Be blessed.

05 neon making squealing noise while driving. the noise stops when brakes are pushed


inferior pads or improperly installed. it could be that they just need to conform to the disc and the sound will go away, but you should find out that everything else is ok. if you got one of those brake jobs with a lifetime warranty, then its definitely because of the pad material.

Whenever i press the brakes to stop, i hear a loud clicking noise coming from the rear end. It sounds just like the same noise that cv joints make when you turn.


sounds like a brake part has come loose.. maybe the self adjuster or the emergency brake cable wire.. it should be obvious when the drum is off

Loud squealing noises when I turn the wheel of my 2000 ford range


It sounds like the power steering belt is too loose, tighten it up a bit but not too much just enough to make slipping belt stop.

2002 dodge caravan rear disc noise


Sure sounds like you need new brake pads. On the brake pad is a small metal tab that contacts the rotor and squeals when the pads need to be changed. Hope this helps. Please keep me posted. Good luck
