Default squeaking sound while driving... what is it?

i have a 2001 2 door accord and for about 4 months there has been a loud sqeaking sound while i drive and it gets progressively worse as i drive... i took it to the dealer and they said they could hear the sound so they couldnt do anything.. i had a friend that knows about cars and said that is sounded like my front wheel drive was squeaking... could that be what is wrong? if anyone had the same problem please help!!!

i too have a 01 coupe.. i have a squeaking sound from the passenger side when i go over bumps, rocky roads, etc .. i have had this sound for more than 3 months now and i think its my shock or spring.. haven't have any time to check them..

for you .. when do you hear this sound? when turning? going over bumps?

Rear sway bar links on all 98-02 Accords are prone to breaking. You may either want to take a look yourself (you might be able to tell without lifting the car), or have it inspected. Broken links could cause sqeaking or clunking from the rear suspension as there is more stress on other suspension components.

I've also seen replaced c.v. axles installed wrong and causing a rubbing/squeaking sound. If brakes have been replaced recently, sometimes the tech may forget to tighten a brake caliper bolt and this could cause sqeaking.

Not sure what else it could be besides a spring or shock, but unless the mileage is in the mid 100's I'd pretty much rule that out.

One item that needs to be asked: drum or disk brakes. A condition can occure specific to disc brakes, where the shield behind the disc brake rotor can be bent out of position after several trips up and down the local lube rack; resulting in the shield being against or very close to the rotor..
Although predominately found on the front, it can also occure in the rear.
My '97 displayed this condition and would only do it over 30+ mph. The air pressure from moving thru the air was enough to move the shield into the rotor

i think that , that might be it i have a friend that has an 03 civic and he just recently heard the same thing that i was hearing... i know it was the same sound bc he drove with me.... and when he took his car in the said that they found the problem and changed out his rotor and brakes costing him 500 bones. thanks for the reply

A suggestion: get involved with the diagnostic process with the tech who works on your ride. I'm curious as to what was changed out for 500.00....... I hope it wasn't one of those "replace until I fix it" exercises. The solution to my problem involved no more than the inteligent application of pressure to reposition the dust shields.
The cost? A six pack of Sam Adams.
