View Full Version : Terrible screeching.

It started as a small sqeek when I turned. But now its just terrible. When I go to turn it does it, when I brake it does it, and even when I begin to accelerate it does it. How do I get rid of this terrible sound making my car go from a beauty to a piece of crap when I roll by.

Need more info.

What kind of screech is it? Does it sound like it's coming from the engine? From the brakes or suspension? Does it change pitch at all when you rev the engine up or turn the steering wheel. Your question is way too vague to come up with any kind of answer.

I figured. Its not engine, more like suspension or the axel

Also it does become a higher pitch the more a break and the faster I get. Eventually it stops when I reach about 15 or 20.

I'd say wheel bearing. Mine both squealed when I would turn corners but they weren't bad enough to do it in a straight line yet. I changed both of my front one's and killed 90% of the squeal but I still have a slight squeak when turning to the right but I'm don't know where to find that one. So what ever mystery part is still squealing on my car could also be a culprit on yours too.

My best bet would be wheel bearings as well, and if that fails, check the brakes.

Jack up your front end, both wheels off the ground, take off the tire on the side that the noise is coming from, get a buddy to spin the tire from the other side n see where its coming from. Then take it from there
