what did they service at firestone?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Firestone did the ff:
Brake inspected for grinding noise: breaks are good but cleaned pads and advice me to drive the car more.
Noise inspection (rambling and high pitch noise): replaced broken vacuum line, also correct improperly seated oil dip stick tube.
Engine/Trans Mount Bushing: removed and replaced all.

just dirty

is the grinding coming from the wheels?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I thought it was. I tried to drive the car today and it made that rambling noise again - specially when backing out of the driveway. Sounds like it was coming from the engine - I maybe wrong. I could also hear it skip revs; sounds like the engine is going to stop.
