2003 Honda Odyssey Brake grinding noise

We had our brakes done at 38,000 miles and recently replaced our OE tires with Yokohama TRZ's at about 43,000. From the moment I left the tire replacement place there was a significant grinding in the front brakes. Still, 3,000 miles later, it won't go away.

    You should check the inside pads of the front tires and rear tires(requires taking the wheel off).

    See if the pad thickness is the same as the outside pads.



    We have had issues with our brakes and it seems many others have as well but honda is not wanting to provide the real answer to the issue.



    Let me know what you find.

Yikes! Do I understand this? You've had the grinding noise for 3k miles? Well, too late now, but you should have gone right back to the tire installer, and asked if they could pull the tire off and take a look. They probably wouldn't want to, but it sounds like they may have had something to do w/ this noise. (but I really don't know what could have happened) Sometimes a small pebble can get lodged in the brake rotor and shield, but it will fall out (sometimes) when you back up, or it grinds down enough that it just falls out on it's own. It wouldn't still be there making noise. Does this grinding happen only when you put the brakes on, or all the time? I would recommend a visit to a trustworthy garage for a check asap, as if it is a brake problem, you should have it fixed right away. Let me know the answer to my above questions, as I'd like more info to figure this out. Let me know how you make out. countrycurt0

Leaking fluid around left front wheel of 2001 Audi A6


If it is near the tire it is brake fluid. The brake fluid reservoir is back by the firewall driver side of engine compartment. Your car uses DOT 4 brake fluid.

Purchased focus sport 2006 model no service manual. Mileage 43,000 kms. Need to know service intervals either time/mileage perhaps a copy of the service schedule will suffice.


These maintenance intervals come from the maintenance interval calculator
at www.autozone.com, using a starting point of 25,800 miles (43000 km), and
assuming 1000 miles (1666 km) driven per month, and "severe driving conditions," which
are actually normal usage characteristics, such as frequent short trips, urban driving, waiting in traffic, driving in hot weather, trips under 16 km in cold weather, etc.

What kind of tires do I need for a 2008 chevy uplander?


Tires have many variables that affect drivability and safety...Depending on how you use your Uplander...like most things...you get what you pay for...It is usually best to stay with original tire size...ie...225/60/R16..(This confirms speedometer accuracy and tire wheelwell clearances). Comparison by mileage warranty will help assure good quality. All season tread pattern is best overall...For best ride quality the Michelin Harmony is hard to beat. Yokohama tires have proven to be great performers, but do not ride as soft as the Michelin...Goodyear design and quality is not the leader as they used to be in the 1980's...still OK but harsh ride and poor performance in slippery weather...Bridgestone is good also, but not as good as the Michelin or Yokohama...You will be pleasantly surprised with either the Michelin or Yokohama...Tire sidewalls are required to show the USDT rating for temperature and treadwear comparison...Last but just as important is tire air pressure...35 lbs psi is best for everyday driving, handling, and tread wear...Hope this helps.

Hello,
I do agree with the person who mentioned
" Tire Noise". A few moments spent with a knowledgeable tire dealer will help

Tires are eating my cashflow


NASCAR is the only other vehicle that has gone through more tires than you! I feel you frustration.
With properly inflated, balanced and aligned tires there should be no reason why you are going through tires at this rate. I would find a more reputable dealer and/or tire shop. Get a computerized 4-wheel alignment and a warranty on the tires (if you already have not done so).
I would also have your bearings, bushings, tie rods, CVJ's, drive axles, sway bar, complete suspension, and vehicle frame carefully inspected by a more reputable car repair shop.
Tires under warranty are pro-rated based upon mileage, meaning your previous warranties should have covered the cost of the tires or most of it. Any certified Tire Shop would be losing money on you, and should have checked it more closely.
9-year old car with 38K = 2,000 miles per year. Is your vehicle sitting alot? Is it sitting on dirt or gravel alot? If it sits on dirt for a long period of time (3-months) it could cause dry rot
If they can't find the problem, then I would link with this sites': Lemon Law site and pursuit a claim. There is no reason they have been putiing you throught this. Let me know if this helped, or if you have any additional inforamtion, preoblems or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Intermitant droning noise from rear wheels mainley motorways/a roads over 60 mph had bearings checked by independant mechanic said they were ok car is an 04 done 43 000 miles


Sometimes tires get noisier as they wear out. Check the tread depth on the tires, see how close it is to the minimum. At 43k miles you're probably gonna need new tires pretty soon anyway.
