1999 Isuzu Rodeo LSE 6 Cyl 3.2L - Preventive Maintenance
My SUV makes a grinding type noise when I hit the accelarator.
I thought at one time, it was a signal that I needed oil in my engine. but still does it and only hear when I hit accelarator. Also how or when should a tie rod be replaced?

    Where did you hear the grinding is it in your rear axle area or rear of the vehicle? Did you already check the condition of your U-joint and differential drive pinion?
