They sure can. They can also make a grinding noise when your power steering system is low on fluid.

Not usually. They can hum, spin the belt, or make a chirping noise when over-taxed maybe. Grinding, probably not, especially if the fluid is within the full range. If your steering works smooth while sitting in the driveway and doesn't make a grinding sound, you're cool.

does this truck have a double walled exhaust? some stock headers have this and when the two walls separate they make this sound. it then goes away with a little heat/expanding.

the other thing it could be is whats called clutch buzz, where theres too much play between the clutch disc and hub, causing the springs to move around way too much they make a little noise.



H - Is it a grinding that sounds like big things grinding, or something more like a small plastic geared pump grinding? trying to get an idea since i cant hear it.

they make more of a wailing noise, like a whale song from the comedian Jim Gaffigan. this really shows up when you are at full lock.

maybe more like a moan.

the sound is more like bigger things grinding. the clutch has been a pain in the bum, so it might very well be that.

update: so it did it again, even tho the car did not sit all weekend.

softer sound this time, more like a moan or whiney groan, after about 3 seconds clutch all the way out 1st gear, on the gas just a little bit.

only in 1st gear that I've tested. You can hear something 'winding down' when I put the clutch back in.

edit: no sounds at all in neutral, no matter how I rev it or move the clutch

throwout bearing.

the bearing is either whining or the face of the bearing is slipping against the face of the pressure plate fingers until they reach an equilibrium speed.
