Anyone here good with cars?
« on: June 25, 2017, 12:13:24 AM »
Alright so my older brother fixed up this 2004 crossfire for me right?

So I've been driving it around for a couple days and I noticed that whenever I decelerate to like below 20 or 30mph, I hear this really annoying squeaking noise from the rear right wheel.

This isn't a big deal...  right?  Like I don't gotta worry about the car blowing up on me or anything?  It's really annoying and it would be nice to fix it cheap and fast.  I know it's not the breaks because I hear it when the breaks are off too.

Thanks guys

update:  I drove it this morning and the squeaking noise is gone.

I see u didn't get any responses.  No, I'm not "good" with cars, but I have spent my time fixing them and stuff.

My two cents?  It really could be anything.  Tie rod ends, no grease in the ..... what are those things called, the little cups around the axle near the wheel. 

So, obviously, I'm not a master mechanic, but I do know that it sure as shitut could be serious.  Fortunately, you can just sort of look for yourself and see if anything looks odd, just don't wear your best clothes to do so. 

That's all I got.

I'm not good at auto repair. But I know people who are. They're called mechanics.

They work at auto repair shops. You take your car there and they fix it.
