I have a 1999 Honda Civic EX, 111,000 miles, with an automatic transmission.
In the past 1,000 miles or so, my car has started making a basket full of not-so-good sounds.
1. When I back up towards the right or the left, there is a very loud, steady squeal coming from the back part of the car. The squealing starts to end when I put on my breaks. And completely ends when I put my transmission intro drive. If I back straight up, the sound is still there, but not nearly as loud or evident.
2. There is a periodic, oscelating, grinding/squealing sound that comes from under the car when I'm driving. It's super loud sometimes and inexistant at others. It sounds like it is coming from under the right side of the car. When I press the brakes, it continues for the first few seconds, and then stops completely. When I first started hearing it, it would happen once or so a month, now it's happening at least once a day.
