Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo

2 Answers

2004 Aveo sounds like a helicopter!!

I have replaced the right wheel bearing which has removed the play in the steering wheel but not the noise or vibration. It feels like it is coming from the front center. I have tried to find a diagram of the front axle to see if it has an axle bearing but to no avail. Can anyone tell me if it does and if it is the problem. All the mechanics I have visited say it is the right wheel bearing but, like I said, that has been fixed.

Thanks so very much!!

    My front outter wheel bearing melted due to high friction and once it cooled it fused to the spindle

    changed the front wheel bearings as the right one was bad. It made no difference. could it be a slipping lockout in the torque converter? Really don't feel it in the steering wheel. Thanks

I have been tricked by the wheel bearings many times. i had to invest into a chasis listening device so i could be more acurate in my diagnosis for my customers. what i am getting at is you probably had two bad bearings when you replaced the right one that was louder. the axle bearing is the wheel bearing wich now contains the hub too. make sure the axle nut has been torqued to the manufactures recommendations of "THEIR" part. 3 different manufacturers = 3 different torques. believe me i've had my suppliers send out two different make hub/bearings and had two different torque values. i like to use oem parts. Check to see if their is a bulletin or recall for those as they shouldn't have gone bad that soon unless you have a ton of miles on it.
Good Luck..........Scott

I replaced my tierod on the passenger front.there is still some play in the left to right there is also a humming sound at speeds 40+mph. it's coming from the hub bearing or ball joint.


Any wear or play in a bush or rod usually gives a 'knock' or causes vibration, not a humming noise.
If there's play in the steering wheel that may be due to a worn steering rack and pinion.

A worn ball joint can cause a 'crack' noise and depending on the wear, vibration that will be felt through the steering wheel. A worn ball joint can also cause the car to pull to one side.

A humming noise suggests it is either a brake rotor/pad, or a worn driveshaft or wheel bearing.

Check the tires make sure they aren't chopped or unusually worn. Also check your wheel bearings for play and smooth rotation.

My AVEO 2006 is making a humming noise, coming out in the middle engine compartment of the front or dashboard area. It start to be hear when speed goes between 55 kph and 80kph, and sounds like it is


The most common reason for a humming noise in the front area of your car would be a wheel bearing noise. I would start by having the wheel bearings checked.

There are two ways to check the bearings, one would be to jack wheels of the ground and check for free play in wheels, the other would require having a tech test drive the car, a good test drive by a tech can tell you if it is a wheel bearing problem.

A wheel bearing noise will get louder as the speed increases and the tone will change if the wheel is turned left or right.
You can try this test yourself, get car up to speed of noise and then listen as you turn wheel to left and then right and if the tone changes then i would suspect the bearing and next step is to find out which one, this would need to be done on a lift. good day

2004 chrysler sebring... when i drive it more then 30 miles there is a ticking sound in the engine, theres a squeaky noise in the front when i go over a bumb. and the major thing is that theres a harsh...


Ticking in motor after engine heats up- do you keep your oil changed every 3,000 miles? Broken down and dirty oil will cause this. Squeek over bumps could be bad strut or it could be related to the harsh grinding noise going around turns. That is indicative of a bad CV joint or wheel bearing.
Raise car on side noise is coming from. Grab wheel with both hands and pull/push on wheel then wiggle back and forth. Feel excessive play? Grab drive axle also doing same thing feel for play or notice if rubber boot on drive axle torn or separated from axle. Usually you will feel play or notice a kind of clunking. I would say replace CV joint and wheel bearing at the same time as one will usually affect the other and both will be bad if one has went out. Not an easy fix and requires special tools. Take to a qualified mechanic, it will save you a big headache.

It would be kind of hard to explain, but you may want to check your wheel bearings. Sounds like your wheel is binding. If you jack the front up, grab your tire, and shake. Sort of like you are trying to turn the wheel your self with out the steering wheel. Then do the same up and down. If you have a lot of play, then your wheel bearing is shot. And with a 4WD, you have to replace it because its sealed, where as on a 2WD, you can tighten them. For the pitman arm, and the gear box, you may have to get a haynes manual to find. But the gear box will be the box that your steering shaft goes into and connects to the tierods. Not too hard to find.
