Hello All,

I am new to the forum but thanks for the help in the past.

I am having a growling noise coming from what sounds like the center of the engine compartment. There is a slight vibration felt in the peddle. Can be heard slightly outside of the van. It only happens after engine is warm/hot. When I brake from a less than 35 mph it will growl starting at about 15 mph and done to 0. Here's some other details;

vehicle has 92,000 miles
Engine replaced at 84,500 (Dodge reman thank you Monro)
New pads, rotors, and hardware/pins lubed all steel on steel (thought that was the issue)
Have checked all around wheel well area and engine compartment for any rubbing hoses etc.
Tires are fairly new with no bad belts
Alignment is good

Otherwise the van brakes and stops smoothly, without any noise vibration, and tracks straight under hard or soft braking. Not sure what else to look for or at, any ideas would be great

Thanks in advance

Sharone,

 

This noise could come from either your brakes or bearings. 

 

Typically your bearings will make more noise as you accelerate. where as Brakes make the noise when you apply them. Either way, it is a good time to inspect your brakes and bearings. Continuing to drive with these problems is dangerous and can lead to more damage.

 

Good luck

Check the mounting bolts on your brake caliper, I had them come loose once and made a horrible noise while braking

Were you able to figure out what the issue is?

Sorry for the delay getting back to this....

 

I have been driving it around asis for some time with no issues maybe 2000 miles. I believe it is the front brake pads that I bought. I bought the semi-metallic pads when I changed them, and have noticed an extreme amount of brake dust. Well more then I have had on any other car. As soon as I have a day off, and decent weather I  will change out the pads with a good ceramic set and see if that improves the situation. This is all I can think of. The shear amount of dust tells me something isn't right
