Having problems with your Chevrolet Cavalier ?
When I back up the car makes a loud howling noise sometimes. I am not using the brakes when I hear the sound and it only does it on occasion. The only times it has done it when backing up is after it has sat in my driveway all night and never after I have been driving it during the day. Only does it in reverse, not driving forward. What would the problem be?
Most likely the brake pads and the material they're made of.I have experienced the same thing in many different vehicles,and it always turned out to be the brake pads,or in some cases,rear shoes.I know of a particular Sunfire does it all the time with the factory pads,so not uncommon.Most times,when stepping up to REAL expensive pads,like ceramic,it cures the problem/complaint.
