Question about Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

My 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan makes noise occasionally when I turn left or right. They noise sounds like a grinding or loose piece of metal grinding somewhere. I have checked both wheels, nothing is loose. I just went under the van and saw that where I assume the rack/pionion is located a lot of red fluid on the bottom of the vehicle and only on the right side. Lastly, the noise seems inconsistent but mostly when turning sharp corners with the gas pedal depressed as opposed to coasting. What could it be?

My 2006 grand caravan had the traction symbol elite come on and it made a bad grinding noise?? Symbol was a little car with skid marks under it?


You probably have a bad right side C V shaft. The shaft has a spline joint in the middle; over time water gets inside and rusts the splines causing it to slip(makes grinding noise), and it will not turn the wheel, causing the wheel speed sensor to cause the traction light to illuminate. Replace the C V shaft (reman ones are really cheap)

Transmission problem on my 2001 dodge caravan


Not good if it makes a grinding noise. Needs a tech or replacement as something most likely has come loose inside the transmission.

Compressor makes a loud squeeky noise


Could just be a worn belt or faulty or loose tensioner. Does it only make noise when AC compressor kicks in? If it's not a metallic sound, and sound more like a screech/squeel, then I'd look close at belt condition, and tension.

We have a banging underneath the front, we think, which sound,s like metal on metal. we hade a mechanic with a tester on and it didn,t show anything worn or loose. on 2006 Grand Caravan. How can we fix...


If you mean the mechanic plugged in a code reader and didn't get any codes, some engine troubles won't make the light come on. You can't fix what you don't know is wrong so try this. Does it make the noise if the car is NOT moving? if it only makes the banging while driving then I would be looking for a loose body part. If it makes the noise while sitting still then you need to find a mechanic that can "listen" to the engine noise and determine if it is coming from the "top end" or "bottom end' of the engine.

Grinding sound when turning


if its a grinding/knocking type sound then it could be the cv joint gone bad.the side that makes the noise when you are loading during turning(turning left you are loading the right cv joint and vise versa)that is the side the bad joint is on.it will happen whether or not your foot is on the brake.if the noise happens as strickly a grinding noise like when brakes are metal to metal when applying the brakes then it could be brakes need replacing.also have seen were if the inner fender is loose or oversize tire is on it can rub sounding like grinding.
