2003 Kia Sorento clicking noise

Showing 2 out of 11 Posts | Show 9 Hidden Posts
Question From rtonkins on 2003 Kia Sorento clicking noise

2003 Kia Sorento EX, 6 cyl, 130,000 miles

When the vehicle is cold I can drive for about 5 minutes with no noise. As the car heats up slowly a clicking sound develops in the front left side of the car. To me it sounds like a playing card in bicycle spokes. The longer the car is driven, the louder the sound gets and the sound decelerates as the vehicle decelerates. Below 5 miles an hour the sound stops. just before the sound stops the sound changes to what I would describe as a metal clamp around a shaft that is too small. I "think" I vaguely smell a burnt smell after this happens.

I am hearing this very loudly with the driver window down but can hear/ feel it with the window up too.

Any thoughts? (Pray its a cheap fix!!)

Response From Sidom

Tom pretty much covered all the bases. It's tough not being able to hear it. Does the noise change when you apply the brks or if you are turning the wheels?

Whether you do this youself or take it in, you should look at it soon, sometime driving on a problem only makes it more expensive.....

Response From rtonkins

Turning the wheels makes it go away for a short time. Ill pull the wheel off tomorrow and check for frozen brake parts. Thanks for the help. Just hoping its not a transmission going bad.

Response From Sidom

Sounds like it could possibly be a bad bearing. If your left bearing was bad, while driving if you turn to the right. That shifts all the weight to the left and the noise would get louder. If you turn to the left all the weight goes right and the noise would get quieter. This is one way to help diagnose the problem & side.

You can check for play in the wheel while it's in the air but in the early stages of a bearing failure you don't get play so it makes it harder to diagnose.

Also make sure the tires tread isn't "choppy" . Irregular thread can cause a similar noise....

Response From rtonkins Top Rated Answer

Just thought I would follow up. The noise was the front drive shaft coming from the differential. Need to have the entire unit replaced. Dealer parts wants 800 for the driveshaft assembly and the repair shop cannot find another outlet to get one. OUch!!

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Appreciate the follow up - sorry about the expense,

Good to see you back! I did check profile whatever it is just signed in - 7 posts and 6 are moved to the "Bin." I left this for now - delete last few if you see fit but I kinda thought a reply/edit for a while might help - I dunno. Haven't had much time here lately,

Response From Tom Greenleaf

With noises like that we can never be certain. Wheel bearings make a distinct sound usually,

Response From Carnut1420

Kia 2003 clicking noise is too much....I don't worry to it...



(on edit: How was that helpful? Problem was solved and links in you signature and the post aren't allowed. Kindly remove links)

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Hard to say on noises as described. Brakes, wheel bearing or a cv joint. If you are smelling something a caliper may be part frozen and the wheel would be warm or hot vs others. All of the parts that turn need be checked. I've seen rotors get a rust ring where the pads don't hit the last bit on outside make noise and brakes may feel funny. That usually happens when brakes are replace with pads only without tuning rotors (doubt they are thick enough or replacing them.

If you aren't going to fix this yourself a good tech will find it. Being there with you symptoms would really help,

Squeking sound from front driver wheel

Showing 2 out of 2 Posts
Question From member101 on Squeking sound from front driver wheel

My kia rio have got a new sound thats completely confused me:

Its a squeking/ metal sound from the front drivers wheel. I have jacked up the wheel and rotate the wheel and there is a rough metal sound that follows the rotation. There is no play with the wheel!.

The squeking sound comes consistently and in tandem with wheel rotation whether I drive fast or slow speeds because of this it is more audible when i drive at slow speeds. I have taken off the wheel and moved the hub rotating it and the sound is still present.

The sound comes clealry from the front drivers right side and can be heard turning the wheel or hub axle by hand!.

The last work done to the vehicle as follows:

1. Changed wheel hub (300km ago )
2. Installed new drive shaft ( done 1000km ago)
3. Installed new wheel bearings both front ( done 1000km ago)
4. Adjusted anti rattle on brake pad ( front) both sides.

A good mechanic who took it for testdrive advised me that its the wheel bearing but i find it hard to believe because I just replaced the wheel bearing by the dealer, 1000kms ago with a genuine part. I am on verge of taking it to another mechanic!.

Any suggestions whould be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Response From re-tired Top Rated Answer

A lot can happen to a bearing in a 1000 miles . Thats what they have warrenties for . If you have a warrenty on the bearing go back to the installer . Otherwise trust the knowledge of a good mechanic .
