I have a 2001 Kia Sportage. About 100,000 miles. It just started making a grinding sound when I take my foot off of the gas pedal. It makes this sound even if I do not touch the brake pedal. When I do start braking it will continue this grinding sound until I am almost stopped then will make a loud “thud” and stop grinding. I had my brakes done about 3 months ago and had the transfer case replaced 2 months ago.

  1. First thing I would look at would be the brakes. You may have a sticking caliper that may have cause pre-mature brake wear.

  2. Did you ever manage to get this problem sorted?
    I have had the exact same probelm for the past year, had both inner hubs replaced which solved the problem for about 3-6 months at a time, but then it would start up again.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
