Universal Joint When truck is in reverse truck makes very loud squeaking noise. If you pick up speed in reverse squeaking stops. There is no vibrations, noise appears to be coming from drive shaft. Could it possibly be a universal joint?

I have the same noise to my 2005 ford f-150
i beleive its a frozen bearing in the universal

does your truck also ingage its self into 4 wheel and make a loud noise
only way to stop it is to stop the truck or shift into 4 high on the go
only happens when it wants 3 times a day or not for a week

Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

I hit a median while turning left. Why does my vehicle make a loud squeaking noise when I turn the steering wheel or when I hit a bump?


Please get your car checked. You may have bent the Tie rods or the control arm and the Ball joint is making the Squeaking noise. Sway bar end links and Strut bearing will also make noise going over bumps.

Have a 1997 Mountaineer a the front makes this loud squeaking sound when turning/running over speed bumps or any time front suspension is working


It can be bushings in the front sway rods or the control arms. The tie-rod ends or even ball-joint sockets can make noise if they are dry.

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.

A few months back, if you remember, did you hear a "squeak squeak " that got faster as you picked up speed, then went away as you went over 25 to 30 mph? if so replace your universal joints on drive shaft.

Your noise sounds like it is power train related,If you have eliminated the engine,Since it doesn't make the noise while moving and in neutral.
It sounds like a universal joint in the drive shaft.Do you notice a vibration
along with the noise?

My 2004 Colorado Squeaks when driven in reverse


Yup, U-joints do squeeek and a a good place to start. Does the joint show any signs of rusting? If so, it's your culprit.

Rear end squeak


Noise is coming from a dry u-joint and or the carrier bearing if equiped. Usually a u-joint "cherps" in reverse first then only gets worse with time. If it starts vibrating at highway speeds replace them immediately.
