I have a 2006 Montana that has a thumping sound in the front faster I go faster it thumps unless I turn right could that be a wheel bearing

Lift the right side tire up. Grab the top and bottom of the tire and wiggle it. Any movement, the bearing is bad. Even if it doesn't move replace it. When your turn right, it relieves the pressure off the right side . Most the pressure is put n the left side.

What would cause my Aztek to make loud grinding, groaning and now sounds like something is broken in the rear while driving?

My hunch would be rear wheel bearings. Lift and spin each wheel listening for noise is all I can suggest at this point.

Why my my 1999 cavilier ls has a noise coming from middle or rear of car, sounds like a bubble in a tire, but all tires are fine/

Could be a rear wheel bearing. Lift it and grab the tire/s, if they move left to right or up and down. It's a bearing.

What do i need to correct the front tires wear and tear of my 2001 ford f150 xlt?

When you drive, if you loosen your grip on the steering wheel, does the truck try to steer to the left or right? When you lift the truck, do the tires move in the same manner (parallel) or do they toe in or out or do the tires tilt in or out? Where do the tires wear: inside , outside, middle, cupping on the tread , ?

At low speed front wheels are making the stearing wheel move right to lift


It's likely your front left tire pressure is low (check to see if there is uneven wear on left tire), or your front suspension needs re-alignment.

I have a creaking noise coming from the front driver side when making turns at low speed. Also, the front driver side tire is wearing off on the inside. Kim

the tie road end + rack end is the main proplem for making your tire wearing off
the noisy at slow speed coming from tire
you can check that by make the tire free by putting the car on the lift then you catch the tire from side and try to move it (in-out) if its move that mean you need to change even tie road end or rack end or both

2007 Silverado Pick-Up Spare tire won't release We have a flat tire and cannot get the spare out. The directions didn't help.

I would not cut the cable lift. See if there is a way that you can unbolt it so you can un bind the cable. If the tire does not move at all, you might not be catching the knob in the bumper. I would try using the square end. Push it in while SLOWLY turning it to make sure you catch it. Some times you might have to tighten it before you can loosen the tire.
