Question type: General

We I'm backing up once in a while I would
hear like a loud screeching noise, thought
it was my breaks had it checked they were
ok, but now it happens every time I back
up the noise doesn't end till I stop?

Sounds like a stuck Brake Caliper not releasing fully from the disk, or internal expanding hub. If this happens to me, I go to a very open Parking Lot, or a Street with NO cars coming or parked on it. Accelerate backwards to a fairly fast speed, then hit the brakes hard. Try this a couple times, it usually un sticks the Brakes. If this doesn't solve the problem, it could be a wheel Bearing issue.

My 2016 is doing this. Only 3 weeks left on my 60 day dealer warranty. Visual checks out. Second opinion checked out... Sounds just like power steering pump , could this be it?
