Question about Buick Regal

1 Answer

Front wheel noise similar to break sensor. But is not the breaks. It gets worse 30 to 60 MPH as I am turning right. Sounds as it would be the bearings. But I have my doubts about that one.

    I recently bought new tires. My original ones were scalloped. Now with new ones I hear a humming and a slight pull to the right. With a few hundred miles on the new tires I have a little feathering on the insides. Is it the front bear or an alignment problem.

    There is a noise coming from the front of the car ('92 Buick Skylark) and sounds like a growling noise. It happens when the steering wheel is turned to the right, never the left. It also happens if the car goes over a moderately-steep dip in the road. Seems to be getting louder. Can't tell exactly where the noise is coming from, right or left, but if between those two, I'd have to say the right side.

I have a 2002 Toy Camry and today while driving I went to make a left turn. I heard a deep "thud" sound that came the front right-side wheel area and a strange grinding noise that followed also...

check for failed wheel bearings or loose wheel on studs. Check suspension ball joints and steering joints the problem is serious so have the front inspected by a competent mechanic

Grinding noise....sounds like metal

Check the disk brake pads. At slower speeds you can hear them squeak because there is less wind and road noise. The other possibility could be a bad u joint at the ends of the axle half shafts on the front differential. Check both. I really doubt it is the transfer case. You transfer case is engaged all the time. The axle is locked and engaged when you flip the lever by a vacuum motor on the axle shaft on the differential.

When I am driving and get to about 30 MPH the whole front end of my car begins to shake. The dash board and, steering wheel. It will becomes less noticable when I get to 55 MPH. And now when I slow down...

Hello, There are a lot of moving parts in the front end. You may have a bad CV joint which is on the shaft that turns the front wheels. Each side has a similar part. There are also hub bearings which are in the hub and the hub is turned by the CV joint shaft.

The CV joint can break without tearing the rubber cover on the shaft, but if someone looks under the car at the CV shaft and sees oil or grease or a torn rubber cover on the right side CV shaft; it will confirm the diagnosis.

Once this part breaks the car will not move anymore. A broken CV joint can cause other parts to fail like the hub bearings. You can call around and price the repair or if you know someone who can do the work, price the parts.

If the shaft needs to be removed, it is behind several parts which will need to be removed first.

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?

3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.

Apply brakes at low speed I get a noise and then the brake get hard and you can push the brake down lose your brakes but works fine for a hi speed stop

it sounds as though you are expierencing flase abs activation. this is common on gm (and ford) trucks. this is caused by rust getting underneath the front wheel speed sensors, betwen the sensor and hub mounting surface. the rust opushes the sensor away from the tone ring making it lose sight of it, forcing the abs to engage as it suspect the wheel is locked up @ 0 mph. the vehicle may have a tendancy to have a very slight pull to the opposite side that is affected. meaning if i break @ a slow speed, hands off wheel (be careful :) ) it may pull to the left @ first slightly, this would indicate the right front sensor has lost its signal...if you do not have a can start by carefuly removing the front sensors, cleaning the rust off the mounting surface, then reinstalling with somedielectric greese on the sensor oring and mounting carefule pulling sensor out of hub as it is plastic and may break, try turning left to right veryslightly, working back and forth and it will come out..if it break, you will have to pick out the pieces, not dropping any pieces into the hub asm, if this happens, the hub is junk and very expensive to careful, good luck

ps 4 thumbs up would help me the same as i help you...thanks!

hub or wheel speed sensor can cause noise. You need to find out if noise is constant or does it increase when turning left or right. have your outer joint checked in axle because they have been known to break.
