I lent my car to a friend and he took it through mud. When I got it back it would make an odd grinding and squealing noise when it moved, and would get worse when turning. I narrowed the sound down to the front driver side tire. I washed it and paid extra attention to the pads and rotors on three occasions now, which would fix it for an hour or two, then it came nack and it's a bit worse. Any ideas what it could be?

Hello and welcome to just answer. Mud and dirt probably got caught up in between the CV joint axle and hub bearing. Maybe also up and in between the rotor and backing plate. You should probably have a shop disassemble the left front caliber, rotor and then really inspect and clean it better. That should make the noise go away completely.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
