THE RZA Posted March 4, 2009 Share Posted March 4, 2009 hey guys, tonight when driving home from work I heard a high pitched sqeaking sound as i was accelerating, it almost sounded as if my alternator belt was on too tight, the car is a 09 with 11,000 miles on it and i've had it for 3 weeks now, on my way home i stopped in a 7 eleven parking lot just to check things out, when i made a left turn into the parking lot i heard a grinding sound almost like you would when your brake pads are down to their sensors. when i have the car stopped and turned off i hear a clank sound as if something dropped from the car, when i get out of the car i look under the chasis to make sure nothing fell, nothing there, then i checked my tires to make sure i wasn't riding on a flat, negative so far, i opened the hood to check to see if there was any thing burning inside, negative again. after i checked everything i got back in and continued driving, before i did i noticed i did have some snow build up in my wheel wells so they could of been the grinding sound i had, i didn't hear the grinding sound after that, doubtful but who knows. I asked my dad about the grinding he thinks it was the power steering. But back to the sqeaking sound, could this be from a new belt(its been on for 11k now) or possibly the cold weather we've had up here in new jersey that past 2 days, my car was sitting outside turned off for over 14 hours in 19 degree weather. I'm probably going to take it to a dealer tomorrow to have them look at it, any ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
