Check your disc brake pads to see if they are down to the wear indicaters. When brakes are worn it creates a metal on metal grinding sound when vehicle picks up speed but will intermittenly stop when pressure is applied to brakes. Note that front brakes will be replaced 2 to 3 times more often than back brakes due to the front brakes being your primary souce of stopping power.

Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

This year Jeep is famous for front and rear differential bearings going out, and it sounds like thats whats going on. If the transfer case were going out, you would hear all the grinding coming from the center of the car.

1985 dodge ramcharger, carburetor issues


Sounds like a problem I had with my '85 Dodge D150 Ram Prospector. In my case, the automatic choke was broken and it was starved for air during acceleration because the choke was always closed. It ran fine at idle or very slow acceleration. I wired the choke open and it runs much better, although it is much more difficult to start as the fuel mix is lean due to the extra air. Once it gets warmed up, though, it runs fine. I hear that the barrel carb on mine often has problems.

Apply some white grease to the starter gear and turn the engine over without starting it, remove starter and check the gear mesh pattern to make sure starter is aligned right. You might need to shim the starter. The starters bendix drive might be sticking. Is it a brand new starter or a used or rebuilt starter?

Does a fuel pump make a grinding noise while idiling


fuel pump noises vary from model to model however, it should be a smoth humming or steady sound at idle not a grinding or pulsing sound. A inexpensive way to improve your fuel system is to replace the fuel filter. This is relatively inexpensive and can save wear and tear on your fuel pump. Remember, if you do replace a fuel pump always replace the fuel filter and make sure that you replace the fuel strainer. A plugged fuel filter can quickly ruin a fuel pump. I also recommend flushing the fuel tank if the old fuel strainer has more than very small amounts of rust or dirt.
