At 20 mph it grinds around seconds intervals and speeds up when I go faster. You know, it can only be so many things, just take it into a garage to be looked at or get under there and check it out. OJ answered 3 years ago. Could the rotors on the front be warped? Pickups are good for warped rotors if lugs are tightened in excess of specs.
At highway speed, if you apply the brakes you can usually feel the pulsation of a warped rotor. What a shop would do is place the vehicle on a lift, let the engine run in 2WD drive and 4 WD and see if they can locate the problem with the wheels turning off the ground. They could probably locate the problem at idle with no weight on the suspension if drive line related. My F is doing the same thing, started at about km.
Sounds like metal on metal, like when you lose a brake pad. It shakes the whole truck. The dealer doesn't know what it is, keep telling me it must be stones between the caliper and the rim.
Ford needs to get to the bottom of this, I know of three other 's doing the same thing. Ruthie answered 2 years ago. We have a F The dealer service guy says Ford are aware of the issue shaft bearing.I have a Honda CRV with about 85k miles.
I had new tires put on, rotated front to back, and balanced. Also had new front brakes steering wheel shook when I braked at high speeds. Could this be wheel bearings? Tie rod ends? Could be inner CV joints. Rather than guess, take it to a good shop, describe your symptoms, and let them check it out. Having it properly diagnosed up front is almost always cheaper than guessing and telling the shop what to change.
It also pulls to the right. Everyone is saying CV joints and bearings sound like marbles. It sounds much deeper and not tinny. Please explain. Were four new tires mounted or two? Of course, the noise you describe is classic bad tire belt sound, usually caused by excessive tire age or tire damage.
A bad rim would cause symptoms similar to a bad tire s. This is not always performed during a tire replacement and balancing. When tires become unevenly worn or have some internal damage like a broken belt, they will make that sound…. I had this problem with a 97 ford explorer 4wd. I got hit in the back, sitting still at a stoplight. The small fender bender knocked it WAY out of alignment, and I ended up buying new inner and outer tie rod ends and got an alignment.
Then take it in to check alignment. If its still aligned, they might not charge you. To clarify, I had 2 new tires put on the back in March and 2 new tires put on again last week they always put the new ones on back.
SO now I have newer tires on front from March and brand new tires on back. So it sounds like bad alignment? Have the alignment checked at a good independent shop. Have them also check for any worn suspension parts. Cupping is usually caused by worn a ball joint, wheel bearing, strut, springs, bushings, etc. Is it recommended to do both front and rear alignment even though I only notice problems with the front? Also, by doing an alignment will they check those other parts mentioned above wheel bearings, struts, springs, etc?
On a vehicle—like yours—with independent suspension on all 4 wheels, you need to align all 4. In fact, it is very possible that a shop might refuse to do solely a front wheel alignment on a car with independent suspension all-around. Yes, they will check front-end parts, as it is difficult—if not impossible—to do an accurate alignment with badly-worn components present.My car sat for several weeks.
The parking brake was on during that time. When I turned it on after that period, it started making a whooping sound. It came from the back tires. The sound was accompanied with a bit of grinding that disappeared later on. The whooping sound is still noticeable however. The sound can be heard during braking, but it is much quieter during braking at speeds as low as mph. I had the bearing replaced but still hear the sound. I was told at the shop that everything seemed fine, including rotors and brake pads.
What could be causing this noise? Is it normal? Try rotating the tires to see if the tires have a small flat spot. If the noise moves to the front then replace the tires. If the noise stays in the back then have the brake rotors resurfaced or replaced to see if this corrects the problem.

Could this be due to unbalanced tire pressure for the tires, or do I need a new alignment? Trying to diagnose a noise over the internet is like trying to enjoy a song by reading the lyrics. When did it first appear? Was there some event that might be connected to the appearance of the noise? Clarification is needed. And, like Remco states, knowing which wheels you think the sound is emanating from would be helpful. Also wheel alignment is not likely to be producing a noise—unless the bad alignment is due to worn front-end parts on your Acura.
Since badly worn front-end parts are dangerous, and since this is a possibility with a 14 year old car, it might be a good idea to have the front end checked out. This would lead to what I call a roaring noise while driving.
Normally if you had uneven tread you can run your hands around the tires and feel that the surface is lifted in some areas and recessed in others. You may want to make your first stop at a tire shop, tell them your symptoms and ask them to look at your tires; I would hope this would be a free service. That hollow rolling sound is the bearing telling you it is on the way out…it will growl more when its close to disintegrating and then big time trouble….

You need to check into this asap Blackbird.An unusual noise or sound coming from your car when you are driving usually means one thing.
Before you rush off to the dealership or workshop mechanic to troubleshoot the problem, consider this: Many mechanics are just lousy trouble-shooters, so it is a good idea to have a bit of information yourself first. You have probably had this experience before: Your car makes a noise, and the mechanic keeps replacing parts without finding the source of the problem, or he replaces several parts that do not need replacing before he finds the problem.
Your mechanics may tell you that all those parts needed to be replaced, when the truth was that he was just guessing at your expense until he found out what was wrong. It is also common after an accident, when guesses are made as to which components are bent or have been stressed. If you are a follower of my car articles you will know that I try to teach non-mechanically minded people how to avoid getting ripped-off by the motor industry.
It is very useful to be able to troubleshoot your car problem from the noises it makes, and it is not as hard as it seems if you understand some basic concepts. Read on for some ideas about what might be causing the noise in your front suspension. The comments section below is very active as well, so read through that and leave a comment!
Any of these events could cause your wheels to go out of alignment. When the wheels are not aligned, you will hear a lot of tire noise. A good way to do this is to drive the car on full-steering-lock both left and right. If the noise is louder on one wheel, you may have a damaged joint. If your car is rear-wheel-drive, ask your mechanic to check the disc shield plate if it has oneto look for crushed rollers in the wheel bearing, or look for a crack in the bearing sleeve.
If you have hit the curb hard and then hear noise coming from that side, look under the car while someone shakes the wheel. If the wheel itself has movement, then you have probably damaged the wheel bearing. It may also be that the ball joint has collapsed. Ask your mechanic to examine the aluminum suspension unit itself, as they have been known to break. If a suspension bush is damaged, it will look a little different to the other two bushes and you will be able to see it by putting a lever against it and moving it.
A constant rumbling noise coming from one front wheel, that changes as you go faster or slower, will often be a worn wheel bearing. No big deal to repair, except on 4WD vehicles, where it can be expensive. The other cause of this noise is exclusive to front wheel drive or 4WD vehicles and is a bit tricky to identify: Noises from drive joints, CV joints, or short shafts all make noise when they are worn out.
A quick way to see if a front wheel drive vehicle has worn out CV joints is to drive the car in a tight circle and listen for a clicking sound. The clicking sound means that the CV joint needs replacing. If your tire pressure is too low, the tire will make a large rumbling sound that will seem to be coming through the vehicle. The noise will be more pronounced as you increase speed.As im braking i have begun to notice a whoop whoop sound sound coming from my driverside.
Ive just had my brakes done, checked my tires, no pulling. Dose not always make the sound when braking only when coming to a full stop. Someone please give me some sound advice before I take it in.
The bearings would grind. The sound is probably a brake shoe or pad which is not retracting and so the disk or drum is rubbing against it in part. However, loose bearings could be the reason the brake is doing this. Give the brakes a hard stop. This was a tip given to me by a car dealer. This will often effect an adjustment. If not, if the whopping continues take it back to be looked at.
The pads may need lubrication, there is a lot they can do inexpensively or free. Dust accumulation alone can cause trouble. But you say you had your brakes done? But did they do all four wheels? This could also be something else like a delaminating tire. If the brakes are new I would expect it to go away by itself. Sounds like you have a warped rotor.
5 Symptoms of a Brake Caliper Sticking (and Its Causes)
If they didn't put new rotors on then the shop should have machined the old ones before putting on new pads. From experience I know some shops will visually inspect the rotors for gouging and if there is none they throw new pads on. Not the right way to do business. If the rotor is warped the pads will not sit flush when applied and will cause the pad to wear unevenly. A definite sign of a warped rotor is a pulsating felt when applying the brakes at high speeds. If it were your bearings you would hear the noise all the time.
Hope I was helpful. If you have slotted or drilled rotors it can make a sound every so often when it rains sometimes not. If you are concerned it was your brakes I would have them checked out again. And that is tire that has a " slipped belt " inside of it. You should be able feel you car move a little as you hear the sound. Take the car back to the shop and have them do the job over the right way. There isn't any discussion that will fix this.
Parts are wrong or not intalled correctly. Answer Save. Favorite Answer.It started a month ago car drives fine until it gets to 50mph then starts making a piercing whooo squeal sound and gets louder the faster I go when I get back down to 50mph it stops until I accelerate back past 50 it's sounds like it's coming from dash or front end I've took to 2 mechanic's and they have no clue they put both new belts on it doesn't make noise in neutral reved up only while driving please help if possible thank you.
If the noise suddenly appears at 50 mph, then check the brake system as there could be an issue with the brake pads rubbing the rotors. If the noise starts off quiet and gets louder with speed, then check the wheel bearings as they are out of grease and the bearings are rubbing metal to metal. If you need further assistance with a humming noise at 50 mphthen seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
