Hey guys... any one else experience this?
I'm not sure if it is the aftermath of driving over top of someones exhaust that fell off on the road or not... had no idea it was there until it was too late because I was behind a big truck which easily cleared the exhaust pipe... But I feel like that hit the left side up front and it made a loud noise.. when I got home I didn't see any parts hanging off the bottom of the car so I continued driving... the issues I am having are on the right side up front and when I reverse.
When I back up without my foot on the brake it really just sounds like a baby crying. Foot applied to brake the noise stops and the car stops. Now ever since I had the car day one it would make a slight screech noise. I was assured that was a PT thing. Now whenever I made left turns or turn the steering wheel slightly to the left when the car is in drive and moving it makes a strange squeek almost like a rubbing rattle sound. It is not difficult to turn. I fixed the power steering fluid hose that was leaking. No sounds when I turn right. It only does this when the car is moving if I am idle the noise doesn't happen.
Any ideas? I told my friend mechanic about it... just trying to get an idea at what needs replacing.
My brakes are still responding and stopping like they usually do. And if I do decide to go ahead and replace my brake pads and what not... any recommendations on a QUIET brand/model? Or is it just the way the car is designed that it will always squeak/screech. I know it really screeches when its wet out.. but I heard all these noises on a dry day.
