    I have a 95 integra with the same problem as of today, but only happened for about 20 seconds on the highway at 140, so I slowed down to 100 and it stopped. But now I'm scared to go back on the road.

A way to tell where it is coming from is to have someone put your car in drive and slowly pull forward until you hear the sound again and see if you can tell where it is coming from.

Brakes make a whistle noise when applied and sometimes a low grown or grinding when coming to a slow stop or start.


A grinding or rumbling noise can also be symptoms of a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint in a driveshaft. A worn wheel bearing can also cause a 'whistling' sound (as can a worn CV joint).

A grinding noise with brakes is either worn pads causing metal to metal contact on the brake disk/rotor, or the brake backing plate catching on a spinning rotor ... or a loose/missing anti squeal brake shim (they stop the pads from rattling and vibrating).

However, as you say a mechanic has looked at the brakes and can't find anything wrong .. I think I would begin to suspect a wheel bearing or constant velocity joint on the driveshaft (front wheel drive cars).

Rear wheel clunking noise and squeeling noise sometimes


This sounds like it could either be brakes or a wheel bearing going bad. You can check this by removing the rear wheel and inspecting the brakes making sure the caliper is mounted on tightly and brake rotor isn't showing uneven wear. Also be sure to check the brake pads to make sure that they are not worn down to the squealer tabs. Most new pads are roughly 3/8" -1/2"thick. and will start squealing if at about 1/8"-1/16" thick. If everything checks out fine then check the wheel bearing by simply jacking the wheel up off the ground and grabbing. Now try to move it side to side or up and down, it should have no play what so ever. And spin the wheel to listen for screeching or squealing, it should rotate smoothly with no abnormal noises.

Tire noise already replaced tires


tyre noise come from wheel alignment out and the tread pattern on the tyres . Have a wheel alignment done starting on the rear end first as it affects the front alignment.. Check CV joints and wheel bearings for serviceability and adjustment.

I have a 2003 Kia Sorento and have a clicking noise coming from the rear passenger wheel area when driving. Could that be the rear end going out?


This noise could be a Joing going out... If this car is a 4x4 then they have a CV joint on the rear to.... If not it could be a rear bearing.... I also something very minor.... If you have plastic hub caps on the rear please take them off then go for a drive to see if the noise continues... This dose sometimes help.... The aftermarket ones can make a noise as i have seen it happen offten

could just be tire noise, but I'd get the tires checked for maybe a tread coming loose,, also, get the tires balanced, and check the wheel bearings ,
