Ford Focus ZTS noise?
 
My car has 75,000 miles on it and just recently it has been making noise from the front end. Every once in a while, the car will make a sort of "wow wow" noise that is almost like a grinding noise. The noise only happens when I am either coasting at low speeds and then press the gas pedal or it just recently started happening when I just move at the idle speed. It does not happen every time, but once in a while and it is slowly getting worse. I think it is coming from the front passenger side. I have read online that it could be the engine motor mount but I replaced that about three months ago. I was just wondering what could be causing this noise and if it is serious. Could it maybe be the transmission slipping? Any thoughts are great! thanks

Posted via FF Mobile update. I realized that it isn't from accelerating. After making it happen more, I believe that it is more from the brakes and it is more of a groaning noise or almost like the brakes are sticking and the rotor eventually breaks free.... could my breaks be sticking and if so how do I make it stop?

There's a chance that it could be your brakes sticking. You might just need to take them apart and lube the slide pins with some brake grease. A groaning/growling type noise can also mean that it might be a wheel bearing that is going bad. You'll be able to hear a bad wheel bearing at low speeds (like when your driving through a parking lot).
