    All sorts of noises coming from the GT3

    Over the past several days, there have been various noises emanating from my car. Today, they all intensified and are driving me crazy (temperatures reached 110F where I was driving if that matters)

    1. Squeaking brakes: my first gen PCCB were squeaking/squealing like crazy.
    2. Random squeaking/squealing: squeaks/squeals were emanating from the front of the car when driven at low speeds and not when braking. Are these coming from the PCCB?
    3. Whenever I come to a stop, it sounds like there is some liquid sloshing near the front of the car (I don't know or think it is liquid but that is what it sounded like). What is this? Could this be the gas tank? I am low on gas.

    Re: All sorts of noises coming from the GT3

    1. Squealing brakes: common issue, try changing the pads.

    2. The random squeaking from the front may be a loose sway bar, easy fix. Very common.

    3. Not sure. (check if theres anything in the trunk )

    Re: All sorts of noises coming from the GT3

    The car likes to be used hard. I don't know about the PCCB brakes, but I know that if I don't hammer the even the OEM pads now and then they will squeal.

    that's funny - I've noticed the same thing. If I drive around for a few days without any heavy braking - the pads squeek at little

    Re: All sorts of noises coming from the GT3

    Agreed. Every now and then you need to really indulge yourself and with the car appropriately warm, really drive it hard.
    Think of it as blowing out the cob-webs...

    It's a known phenomenon. A chemical change takes place in the surface layer of the pad face, which promotes squealing (and incidentally reduces the friction coefficient). Hard use of the brakes eliminates this layer.

    Re: All sorts of noises coming from the GT3

    On several occasions, I have also experienced the same sensation of "liquid sloshing" in my car ('05 GT3 with first-generation PCCB brakes). I thought I had water in my trunk. I took it to the Dealer. The Service Adviser called PCA and was told that the noise is from the PCCB, and is normal and does not represent any malfunction

    Re: All sorts of noises coming from the GT3

    Correction:
    Regarding my previous post: the dealer contacted PCNA, nor PCA
