    the problem is when turning left and right but not when backing up and turning .it sound like the front of the car

  • Curt Downs May 11, 2010

    Does the noise happen when turning right or left, or both? Does it happen when you back up and turn? Is the noise coming from the front, and if it is, does it seem to come from one side?

    You need to replace the rear differential fluid. The moaning and groaning will be gone immediately . Had this changed at 80,000 miles and again at 154,000 miles.

I had a similar issue - kind of a groaning/rumble sound when turning sharply into a parking space or turning at low speed. Took it to a dealer and and they said its common and to change the rear differential fluid. They also checked it when they changed the fluid and all was well. Noise was gone immediately. Hope that helps.

Ok, from your description it could be front axles, four wheel drive, or maybe something else. How many miles on the crv? Did this noise start gradually, or all at one time? here's what you need to check the front axles. There is a boot (made of rubber) that surrounds the axle. It is located at the center of the wheel under the car. You need to look under the car to inspect this boot for damage (torn, ripped, grease covered). The boots will crack and eventually deteriorate so that dirt and road debris gets inside and ruins the axle. If u have high miles, or have hit something on or off road, it can damage the boot causing a noise like u describe. Check both front wheels to see if there is any damage to the boots. Let me know what u find. countrycurt0

Why Does my Toyota Privias front end sound like its rumbling and going to fall apart. Les Schwab says the shocks and brakes are ok, brand new tires. And it idles horribly and wont start now im parked on...

When the front end is making the rumbling sound does it feel as though your going over speed bumps too? If so your wheel bearings are junk and need to be changed out. It is possible that the burning smell is trans fluid if an auto weeping and splashing back on to the exhaust that has a horrible acrid smell.

I am getting a loud rumble noise at the front end of my 94 automatic corolla 1.3L.I checked the wheel bearings by jacking thecar and rocking the wheels back and forth. everything seems nice and tight, but...

It,s a wheel bearing. Not all bearings will move when bad. A way to check to see which side it is, is to drive the car (parking lot is a good place) Turn the car at sharp corners , When turning right, if the noise is not as noticable then the the right bearing is bad, because you are taking pressure off the tire. But I recommend that both bearings be replaced. If one is bad the other will follow, if it's not already on it's way out. You can do this job, except the bearings have to be pressed out and in to the hub.

A rumbling noise gets louder the faster you go,the car is quiet when in park and no vibrations when it is reved up

Sounds like a wheel bearing.

If you jack up each wheel in turn and spin the wheel (make sure the parking brake is off and transmission is in neutral) the offending bearing will produce the rumbling noise.

2001 Sebring LXI convertable. Loud rumbling noise that increases as accelerating increases. Sounds like a rumble strip on the highway. I changed the tires with no change in the noise.

Bad hub bearing. Drive the car on a straght EMPTY road .@30 mph or when noise is audible, **** the wheel left than right (similar to a race car warming. tires) and listen if there is a change in the sound if so its a front bearing if not it should be a rear bearing .Jack the rear of the vehicle up and spin the tire holding onto the strut. Feel and listen for a vibration or noise. This should pinpoint that elusive noise.Let me know Good hunting

Popping noise

Inner tie rods could make the same noise your describing. Do this......with your car in park and at idle, slightly turn you wheel from left to right, just a slight ****. 1/16 of a turn. Increase the pace from left to right, then slow down the pace. You should feel a bump in the steering wheel almost like something is tapping it. If so, have your inner and outer tie rods checked. Actually, have the steering gear checked also for leaks and wear.
