Squealing noise while driving: I'M GOING CRAZY!
I have been going crazy trying to figure out the source of a metallic squeal coming from the right front wheel for weeks now. Itís the same sound you hear when your brakes squeal however the sound is persistent with no brakes applied and gets louder and more aggressive with speed. I initially thought it had something to do with the steering but the sound doesnít discriminate, I could turn the wheel any direction and itís still there. It only goes away when I apply the brakes and comes back when not applied. It doesnít happen all the time, only when the vehicle is hot (driven for at least 10km +).
Recent work done to the car:
1. New Front Cross drilled rotors/Ceramic Brake Pads
2. Drivers side inner tie rod replaced
3. 2 New Front tires
I do about 80% of my own mechanical work on my car, only when itís very complicated do I make visits to Stealerships. I'm no professional, just a guy that enjoys saving money lol.
Has anyone else experienced this problem, or heard anything like it? My car is a 2005 2.5s (Auto Trans). Any advice will be appreciated! I'm buying beer for the one who figures this crap out!
