Annoying sound.

My car's front end seems to squeak whenever I am on the gas or coasting, but when I am braking, it stops. It sounds like the squeak gets faster as the wheels turn faster. What all could this be?

Is your car tuned at all? I'm having this problem myself and am wondering if it could just be a pulley that needs oiling. I plan on contacting the people who do my tunes Monday to see if they know of any issues

Does it always stop with the brakes applied? Do you hear it just on one distinct side? Could be your brakes....

Re: Annoying sound.

If it goes away with the brakes, it could very likely be your indicator tab is just starting to rub the rotor. Another possibility would be a wheel bearing (but its less likely).

It has had the sound for a longgg time, but it's gotten worse when I switched wheels. I had stock tribars and switched to anthracite bullitts with no centercaps, if that helps?

Yeah, like the sound slows down and stops as the wheels slow down.

It's an annoying chirping squeak. Lol

I would check your pads and rotors....and like he said earlier it could be a bearing...does it come from just one side

It sounds like from both. The car has 205,000 miles on it, but I literally had all rotors and pads changes at 190,000. It still made the sound when I changed the pads and rotors. :/ It just got louder with time.

Does it come from the wheels? Can you jack up one tire and spin it to try to find it...check for play/looseness in the tire from left to right...

What do you mean by play? Like moving the entire wheel left and right or spinning it?

Not spinning it just pulling it left to right like the directions the wheel turns.....my brother always told me when I would do maintenance to my truck to check for play left and right and if it did have a lot the bearings were bad or going bad...he said play up and down was a bad ball joint....never had the bad ball joint but I did have the bad bearings....he was a tech for toyota granted this is a mustang hahaha

That makes sense! Thank you for the suggestions, I'll try that as soon as I can! And do you think bad wheel bearing can affect alignment or cause tire wear?

Yes... so could the ball joint or control arms...it all will mess with your toe in and toe out and you positive and negative camber....do your tires lean in or out if you look at them from the front or do they have like a pigeon toe to them?[COLOR="Silver"]

It sure sounds like a brake issue.

I have an update. It is coming from the front passenger wheel. It has a little bit of play left to right, but none up and down.

Does the driver side have the same amount of play? I'd check out the bearings and if you are gonna pull them to check them I'd just replace them both....it's not that hard if you are somewhat mechanically inclined and you can pack a bearing.....with 200k I change them just to be safe so you don't completely burn one out if that's what's starting to happen

I have yet to check the driver side. I was hoping it'd be just one if anything. And I'm pretty sure the car has been having this problem from before I even bought it, so it'll have to be fixed fast. If I had a shop do it, what should I expect cost wise?

I have no clue what it would cost as I have always done my own stuff but if you have the tools to get the tire off it really isn't that much harder to pull the hub... on my diesel it was one nut with a cotter pin....I've been searching for you and apparently is a heck of a lot easier to just buy the whole hub with the bearing already in

I'm really confused as to what this could be. I've been watching YouTube videos,
And nothing really seems to sound like my car does. It literally is a chirping, and if I had to explain the timing, it's like if my wheel was a clock, it chirps every time a point on the wheel passes 12. So when I go faster, it chirps faster. And then it stopping when I brake just boggles my mind....

Pads need to be replaced. It's exactly that sound when the indicators come out. I like the Hawk HPS pads at American Muscle.

Did you buy the car with that problem or did it start after a repair like brakes or new wheels?

Honestly, I've had the car since November 2010. And it had a squeak before, it was just very, very quiet. Then I got new rotors and pads all around, they are duralast gold. And the sound from then kinda disappeared, I guess. See, the car had no exhaust pipes at all. And I play my music so loud. But now, it's like night and day. I can hear it terribly.

Is it possible a caliper is bad, maybe forcing the pad to prematurely wear and cause that sound? I had the pads changed maybe 20,000 ago?

That's what it sounds like to me.....like maybe if there's something to relieve the pressure, its messing up and keeping the pressure on the rotors......does the car seem to slow down excessively when you let off the gas(or in neutral)? If so I would start there

Ah. The previous owner of my car is actually one of my friends. And I am pretty sure he never changed any calipers. So maybe it's something about those.

A slight update. I'm at my mechanic's, before checking it out or anything, he thinks a slider? Is loose causing half the caliper to rub and something... I'm a bad listener.

Re: Annoying sound.

mine used to do this, was a pin that was loose on one of my front brake calipers, but you dont have the same front brakes as I did so not sure if it could be that

Ah. He said something about a pin! And now he thinks that it's the rotor. It's slightly warped, sadly.
