I get a squealing when in motion that starts after my 2008 nissan frontier has been on road awhile, stops at highway speed and when breaking. break pads all good, calipers working ok.

Asked by Aug 15, 2016 at 11:30 AM about the 2008 Nissan Frontier SE King Cab V6 4X4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

so this has come and gone over the past few weeks and baffling mechanic because he has not heard it. Breaks and calipers have been all checked and are fine. it starts faint chirping and gets louder squealing at speeding up and then seems to go away when at highway speed. Also stops when breaks are applied. Does not do this all the time and of course not when a mechanic wants to hear it.
