SOURCE: car makes a high-pitched squealing noise only

Check the belts for slippage and wear. If the tension is not correct, the belts will slip and create a "squealing" noise...moreso at higher rpms or on acceleration as you mentioned....That is the most common cause for a "squeel". I would check that first.
Good luck...i hope this helps fixya up.

Intermittent noise at front end at any speed


Sounds like your front drive shaft between the tansfer case and the front differential. Or it is a Haft shaft going out to the front wheels.

It sounds like a wheel bearing is going bad. They are easy to change. If you have a place to jack the vehicle up. Try spinning the front wheels. You should hear a scraping noise as the wheel turns.Also replace both sides at the same time,as the otherside is not far behind.

2007 VW Jetta (wolfsberg). It's making grinding


It sounds like the inner liner of one of your wheel wells has come loose and is touching the wheel. This would make a sound while moving, but not while stopped. Look inside your wheel wells for the plastic lining that goes all the way around the tire. Look for wear signs. It may even be a hole by now. If you see wear, tug on that wheel well liner to see if it is loose. If so, get replacement screws to hold it in place.

That would explain rumble sounds, high pitched sounds, changing sound when hitting bumps. And it would not affect any dynamics.

The creaking and groaning when car is turned off is a different animal. Possibly something to do with A/C which is depressuring after the car is turned off. To determine if that is the case, see if it makes the same sounds if you've been driving with the A/C off? If not, it's A/C related.

My hyndaui Veracruz started making a scrapping,grinding metal on metal sound from the back,,,any ideas???


Lots! Could be a loose piece of metal scraping on a wheel rim. It could be a cracked or broken brake drum. It could be a broken brake shoe inside the brake drum. It could be a broken brake spring inside the brake drum. It could be a bad wheel bearing inside a rear wheel. Enough?

2005 Ford Explorer is making a grinding noise


I had some issues with my 2005 explorer left rear. It was making a creepy old door sound at low speeds and then a high pitched whisel at high speeds. That turned out to be a broken wheel bearing and had it replaced. Note each wheel has two wheel bearings. After that a new noise developed that sounded like metal scraping/ grinding metal. It end up being the brake dust cover got bent when they replaced the bearing and it was rubbing something, the fix for that was bending it so it didn't rub. I hope this helps.

Front end noise when turning. almost sounds like


There are a couple of things to cause metallic sounds when turning. First thing, is if it's a clicking sound when you turn, then you have a cv joint going bad. It's usually more prominent when moving in reverse, however it can happen just as well while moving forewards. Secondly, if it's more of a grinding or scraping noise, we have a couple of options. The sound could be coming from the brakes, if they're worn or have grit stuck in them, or it could be bad bearings in the front wheel hub. The wheel hub has a tendency to making a whining noise when driving; usually most easily heard when driving past buildings. They can also allow the tire/wheel to present the appearance of leaning when looking at it. If bad enough, it can even rub on the brake caliper, or cause the disc brake rotor to wear out the brake pads prematurely. So, to recap: Check:
CV joints, if a clicking sound brakes or wheel hub bearings if grinding or whining sound.

Noise from offside rear wheel when turning, it sounds like a bearing but we don't think it is that, its not really a 'knocking' more of a scraping, grinding sound. Its not continious, seems to occur mainly...


Have the front brakes checked alot of times the brake pads wear down to the point that the wear warning indicator starts to rub on the rotor or disc and makes a scraping sound when turning, your front brake pads are due to be replaced, I am 80% sure.
