Noise in bottom of transmission case. Sounds like bearing grind. Is this common in 60,000 mile Focus? Car up on jack stands and running in gear. Noise less in reverse.

My 97 ford exlorer will not go into gear except when I put it in 4 wheel low. transmission has been making a popping noise for a while.


If it won't go into gear, sounds like you've run out of transmission fluid. That grinding sound when you turn the shaft by hand, sounds like you've run it for a bit too long without fluid and wore the gears down. Start it up and check the trans fluid with dipstick. If none on stick, put some in it. You may have already ruined the transmission though. But you never know. Try putting fluid in. Might work.(for a while)

2000 Camry differential noise


No I really doubt that it has transaxle noise, it is very likely a bad front wheel bearing. Raise the car up and support it on jack stands and block the rear tires, buy a mechanics stethoscope and listen for the noise at the wheels wit the scope while a helper run the car in gear. Be very careful doing this.

Is the sound constant with the speed of the vehicle or speed of the engine? Does applying the brakes or turning change the noise? Does the grinding sound like metal to metal contact?

Hello i would check your wheel bearings or sometimes called bearing hub .Jack car up prop the car with axle stands now remove your tires and rotors once removed wiggle you bearing hub left to the right your bearing hub should have minimal play one side to the other is obvious the looser play hub will be your noise you have been experiencing.most people call this road noise.

Grinding noise from rear wheel


could very well be a wheel bearing. Jack the car up on the wheel making the noise, grab onto the tire and try to shake it, if there is any play and or clunking noise the wheel bearing is most likely the culprit.

Sudden grinding noise with no prior warning * Primarily in 2nd gear, behavior in reverse may be abnormal; sunshell is fractured. R&R. Try not to run or drive the car or further damage could result.

* Reaction planetary is worn out due to high miles or insufficient lubrication. Not a critical failure, but not a good sign either. R&R sooner rather than later.

* Either a torrington bearing or a planetary bearing is on its way out. Trans will eventually die a loud, catastrophic death. Cheaper to rebuild now (saves further damage to hard parts), but requires R&R. It is drivable until it breaks.

Good luck and thank you for using fixya.

Sand gring noise progressing


do you own jack stands ???
why not jack up the drive wheels and listen for noises ?

jack each wheel up independantly and run the car for a couple of minutes this will aallow you to clear some different noises off the list
push down on the bumber and support the axcell with a jack stand more noises gone from equasion

jack the drive wheels up 1 at a time start car put in gear and run to 20 miles or 30 km chalk the other wheels and do it where you have some space incase chit happens that shouldn't
this will allow you to track the noise to it's location

Grinding noise while driving.


Possible causes:

a) a brake disc shield is too close to the disc, and it's coming into contact in the circumstances you outline

b) pebbles stuck between the disc shield and the disk

c) dried out wheel bearings

d) worn Universal Joints in the drive shafts

e) worn A/C pump

f) worn alternator

g) worn water pump

Is the noise still present above 15 miles an hour and past 1500 rpm when the clutch is disengaged (i.e. gearbox in neutral?). The answer to this question may help you to pinpoint the source. I know it's stating the obvious but the fact that you're hearing a grinding sound means it's caused by something that is moving relative to something else. Again this should help narrow down the cause.

Focus GRINDING NOISE during excellaration


I had the same exact problem with my 2003 Focus with 108,000 on it. Making right turns and accelerating was even worse. Had many ideas from differant mechanics saying it was wheel bearing, steering rack, loose heat shields, transmission...ect. Well after having wheel bearing replaced and steering rack replaced, the grinding was still there. It was finally discovered that the noise was coming from a bad motor mount on the right side. Had the dealer replace the motor motor mount and finally!!! the problem was solved. Thank God.
