Sounds like your brakes on that side are metal to metal, tearing up your rotor... when they get this bad, they will make noise all the time and you dont have to be using your brakes for them to grind and roar

I have a noise in the left front wheel on a 4x4 F-150. Replace the hub, but noise has returned intermeintly.


Sounds like wheel bearing, an easy way to check it out is to just jack up that corner enough to get the weight off the wheel then with one hand on the top and one on the bottom of your tire check for any play. If there is play your bearing is bad. the play will most likely be very very little (less than 1/16 of an inch) but there should none whatsoever. if the grinding noise happens when turning left, check the right side or grinding when turning right check the left side. sometimes the bearing has a bad seal or wasn't properly lubed when being made.

I have a 99 Dodge ram 1500 5.2L stick shift and the front end is making a pulsing grinding noise at 15-30 mph, it stops as soon as I apply the brakes or turn.


1) Could be a stone or something similar between the pads and disks on your front brakes. Wheel off check the disks are they pitted, rusted or scored. Look for stones or grit between pad and disk.

2) Could be a wheel bearing, jack up the car (Securely) see if there's any play in the wheels. Try to rock them side to side and top to bottom. If there's play (movement/judder) from the hub, your bearing needs replacing.

2005 dodge ram 2500 4x4....getting an intermittent grinding noise while driving in the front of truck..possible front differential..;....chrisdawe@comcast.net


Hi,
your description is a little generic, however, that is what we shall work on.
Is the grinding apparent whether the 4X4 is engaged or just in 4X2 mode? On left lock or right lock?

Best thing would be to put the front end on axle stands and start checking. Check the front wheel station on each side by trying to rock it top and bottom. Rotate each wheel and check for noise. When doing this check, listen for any noise emanating from the actual drive shafts to the hubs.

Drain the front differential and check the drained oil for metal shavings etc. To be honest, "grinding" noises usually are accompanied by damaged parts. It's just a question of checking each item in turn. Also check the front prop / Drive shaft for UJ's that are dry and thus will make noise. Also include the sliding spline in your check, again, if it's dry it will be noisy, and it could be intermittent.

4X4's need to have the front ends greased on a regular and generous basis.
You did not mention if you had hublocks fitted, which would be another check to carry out.

Good luck.

I accelerate my 2000 neon, and it vibrates and get grinding noise


Check the front drive axles and boots. A bad cv (constant velocity) joint can cause this.

I Think I have a front wheel bearing problem


Check wheel bering for play if there is no play , it doesn't mean that bearing is NOT bad its can still be dry and would be making that grinding sound you described Also check axle and see if boot is broken. That may be your problem also make sure that rotors are not gouged/scraped up and pads are good.Contact if you need more help and thanks for using FIX YA
