My 91 SE-R makes a strange grinding/rubbing noise at the right front tire. It only makes it when the car is in gear and I take my foot off the gas. It goes away after the car has been driven for about 20 minutes. I checked the tire while the car was still and it doesn't appear to be close enough to rub anything. Has anyone had a problem similar to this and found out how to fix it?

It happens any time I take my foot off the gas when the car is in gear. It goes away or becomes less noticable after about 20 minutes of driving.

I would check both axels (CV's and ware) and maybe check your tranny fluid to see if it's something grinding in your tranny housing. It sounds like a drivetrain problem more than a wheel rubbing issue.

Sounds like a bad engine mount. I've had the same problem. In my case, the noise got worse in cold weather. Unfortuantely, I don't recall if it went away with heat. In any event, it cost me about $100 to do (I didn't feel like replacing the mount myself.)

Check the wheel bearings ( something we don't think about )
