A creaking noise in the front end of the 2003 Ford Escape might be caused by shocks or struts that need to be replaced. This might also be caused by damage to the shocks or struts from high mileage.
A worn-out strut will begin to make noises. In many cases the strut will make a creaking noise when turning corners.
if there is a creaking noise in your car, i think that's bad...
Failing strut, cv joint or steering bushing.
It is a crunching noise not a creaking sound. This noise occurs when walking/stepping on lying snow/ice because your weight is causing the snow/ice to compact itself therefore making a sound. Also I do not know what you mean by 'old snow'. Hope this helped, :) :L
a creaking noise.
Could be the pump or maybe need fluid
please be more descriptive.... if it is constant moaning it could be a wheel bearing.. if not it could be lots of things.
If it's a creaking noise then it is most likely that your compressor is broken.
The universal joints in the front driveshaft may be going bad.
There are several things that could be causing this noise to come from your front wheel well. You could have a faulty wheel bearing, a brake could be dragging, or a hub is rubbing.
That means your brakes are going out and you need to get new ones.
After the Jeep is warmed up, if the creaking noise is noticable during turns at low speeds, then its probably the rear differential. Go to the dealer and have it serviced. All they do is replace the fluid and seal but they use a special lubricant additive.
You most likely exceeding the limits of the ball joints.
The knocking noise could be one of several things. The wheel bearing, a worn steering or suspension part, or road debris could be causing the noise.
Its your bushings, they need to be replaced. About $200 at a shop.
possibly brake pads worn down
do you have wheelcovers. if not something wrong with your tire.
i had the same problem..u got take your engine out out clean it with a toothbrush,buy a gallions of milk and sum caption crunch..eat that put your motor back in and that fixed mine.
Could be the dust shield is scraping the rotor causing the noise.
The bearings in your front wheel. I've just changed mine as it sounded like I'd run over a dog
Possibly the CV joint. If the joint's "boot" has split, lubricant will have leaked out and will cause the components inside the joint to grind together. Take the car to your local dealer for a better insight.
