Q: Metal rotation noise when the car accelerate.

asked by on

Recently i was ran off the road. Hit the curb pretty hard and now i hear this metal like rotational noise when i drive. The faster i go the more i hear it and it dies off when i brake. I have had the front bearings and outer tie rods replaced since the incident but I'm drawing a blank on what could cause this metal rotation noise.

My car has 157000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

This problem may be associated with a bent rim or warped brake rotor; especially since you indicated that the noise goes away when the brakes are applied. When a car takes an impact off road, it tends to damage components from the outside/in; meaning that the tire will absorb a lot of the impact, then the wheel, the brake rotors, calipers, tie rods, and wheel bearings to name a few.

The metal rotation noise could be coming from the brakes or the the rim rubbing on top of the brake caliper. I’d suggest having the vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic who is capable of pinpointing the source of the noise and from there the necessary repairs can be made. Good luck.

Q: Front right passenger side Shaking

If you have frame damage on the right side that did not get fixed or was hidden from you when you bought it, then your vehicle may not be repairable. I suggest having a body shop check the frame damage...

Q: Thieves ripped out ignition

The steering column may need to be replaced, if damaged too badly. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, run an inspection, and replace the steering column, if deemed necessary.
