Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota

2 Answers

Wrrrrring Sound My 2001 Dakota (4wd) had gradually developed a wrrring sound in the front end. It reminds me of the sound that huge mudder tires make when put on a vehicle, but seems to be in the front and possible the left front end. It builds in intensity as speed is increased and vice-versa. I have noticed, however, that if you make a right turn it stops, but comes back as you straighten the wheels again. No change is observed with a left turn is made. I cannot see any obvious problem with the tire itself or any of the mechanical stuff underneath. Any ideas?

Switch tires around and see if sound moves. If it changes wheels, its a tire more than likely, but if it remains at same wheel, I'd say wheel bearing.

Hi, raise one of the front tires of the ground and see if it you can turn it, if you can then its not in 4WD. If the truck has over 100,000 miles then the wheel bearings may be bad.

Vibe like mud tire installed- changes tires/ rims still there


wheel bearings dont have to be loose to be bad. if it sounds like you put mudders on your car it probably is a wheel bearing.
