Hi there the only hing i can suggest is that you have your wheel bearings checked this can be done by jacking up one front wheel at a time and with onehand under the wheel the other on top see if you detec any play in the up and down motion also spin the wheel to see if it makes any humming noise if so it definitly a bearing problem.i hope this has been helpful

I can hear a anoying sound, like a huming that is most prevlent around 40 mile per hrr, arond 70 or so it goes away, kinda sounds like a rearend bearing going bad i had problems with when i had a 89 chevy...


hello
Sounds to me like it could be a wheel bearing bad the best way to tell without tearing it apart would be when you are driving down the road and it is making the noise slightly turn the steering wheel left and right if the noise changes at all then it is the wheel bearing pretty commen problem
good luck

It is a humming sound that increases in intensity with exceleration but quits when acceleration is let up or speed has leveled off


Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing or the rear end is low on gear lube.Check the gear lube very soon so as not to ruin the rear end.

Humming sound above thirty kms coming from under the engine. can be felt in gas pedal but not in steering wheel or brake pedal. sound increases with speed not rpm's


may be a wheel bearing.. when driving down the road try slightly turning your steering wheel back and forth like your changing lanes..if the pitch of the noise changes theres a good chance thats your problem.

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.


Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

Front end vibration at between 70-80kms


A common solution is the tires. I know that sounds too easy but I had the exact same problem. My Dad told me tires. That was hard to swallow since all 4 tires were less than a year old. It was the style of tire on the car. He is a mechanic and I did what he said and it went away. O it could be a bent rim or a bad front wheel bearing. I've seen both

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.
