Tip & How-To about Ford Taurus
This tip is for any car/ truck . A roaring noise that increases with speed, could be a wheel bearing or tire. If different roads make different roars, it could be the tires. Inspect the tires and see if all are smooth with no hi/lo spots or scalloping. If the tires are smooth, its most likely a wheel bearing. Lift up the car so the wheel you want to check is off the ground. Spin the wheel, and grab the coil spring, if the bearing is bad, you will feel a vibration, if its front wheel drive you can put the car in gear, but its best to jack it up and put both wheels up and use jack stands. Be safe.
