Question about 2003 Kia Rio
No matter how fast/slow I go, you can hear the noise. It seems to sound like a flat tire, but my tires are good. The faster I drive, the louder the noise. It's only on the passenger side (back end) & when I turn the wheel to the left it goes away until I straighten out again. HELP!!!! Is it an easy at home fix, or does it need the shop?

To check how tight the front end is, place a jack under the lower arm of each front tire( make sur the car is secure and won't roll) and lift so tires are free of ground. Grasp the tires and try to turn them left and right. There should be minnimal movement. Check the steering components to see where the slack is, if any. If the seeering is tight have the tires checked for balance.

brakes are worn and warning indicator hitting the rotor or you need better brake pads and rotors turned, but from what you describe it sounds like the pads are worn and need replacing. good luck.

take it to tire shop have them use the tool to reset the sensors inside the tires. the sensors tell the computer when one tire is low.

Sounds like the wheel bearings are shot does it become quieter when you make a turn left or right
If it does then they need replacing
