Car making sound when slowing down

Hi there,

For the past month my car has being making weird sound. It sounds like, a loud clicking sound (More like metal scraping the ground with breaks). It does not sound when i accelerate, however i hear it when i reverse or when i slow down to a complete stop.I am not the most techy person, so i can't offer more information.
I know i've been told that my shocks are almost worn out, but i don't think that is the root cause.

My car makes loud sound when i drive and the car shakes and vibrates when i stop at a red light and still keeps making the loud stound . any idea whats the problem and how much it will cost me around


Have the sound investigated immediately as from your description it may be a major engine failure in the making. If it is then the fix will be another engine and that will be expensive.;

My car engine makes loud sound when i drive


This could be a number of things and a car is difficult to diagnose from sounds as th nature of it means that the sound does not always come from where it sounds like it is. Try - wheel bearings (usually a high pitched squeal) - Big or little end bearings if the engine has been run low on oil. It is an auto I assume so could be gear box. It could be something really simple like engine mounts and the vibrations of the engine are passing to the metal body as the rubber has come away.

W+Could you possibly video it and post?

MY 91" TOWN CAR SIGNATURE HAS BEEN MAKING A LOUD


hi this sounds like to me you might have a loose baffel in the box, the reason why the sound dissapates when you get to a certain speed is because the baffel is pushed up or down due to the pressure when you slow down the pressure then releases the baffel and it starts rattling again, you might also have a broken clamp on your exhaust or even a missing rubber bush check these out first...good luck

Sounds like something is caught up inside or outside the engine/transmission where a part is grinding from something reciprocating. Does the sound happen when you apply the gas without the car moving? If the sound only happens while moving then it could be suspension or transmission related. If it only happens with or without the car moving as long as you control the gas then it's probably in the engine or transmission related. Could also be a wheel bearing issue, that will be a humming sound inside the cabin. As you speed up the pitch increases and the opposite happens when you slow down.
