Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus

7 Answers

Loud roaring noise in front, steering wheel has vibration, replaced tires didn't help.

Roaring noise in front sounds like it's coming from tires. Replaced all four tires and noise didn't stop or get better. When you turn left, the noise lessens. The faster you drive the louder the noise gets. Actually sounds like your on a jet plane.

    Same situation! Roaring noise in front sounds like it's coming from tires or a bearing and the wheel has vibration. When you turn left, the noise lessens. The faster you drive the louder the noise gets. I already replaced front tires and the wheel bearings and noise still the same. What else I need to check?

    I kind of have the same problem but we have not had our tires changed yet. They are a little worn but not that bad. Could it be that they need to be aligned as well? Sounds like a mack daddy truck and it is only a small chevy cobalt.

    our vehicle makes loud roaring noise as well. We have a small chevy cobalt but sounds like a mack daddy truck going down the road. Could this be tires and alignment issues. We just had them rotated but they are a little worn but not too bad. Any ideas?

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

Maybe its just the car itself. Some cars are more noisy then others. I have a 2001 dodge stratus that does the same thing. More of an annoying overlooked manufacturing problem then anything else.

Took it to a dealer. RF hub bearing was bad.. Had to replace the hub assy.. The bearing had scored the axle.. So it was replaced as well.

Wheel bearings. the noise is very similar to "cupped" or choppy tires. replace the front wheel bearings and it will go away. easy test though, raise the car off the ground and grab the front tire and try to shake it left or right and if it moves or has play in it then it's definetely the bearings. oh don't forget to lock the steering wheel to so that your not just turning the wheels, you will feel it if it has play in it. this responce might be way to late but good luck.

I just replaced a CV axle, wheel hub/bearing assembly/tie rod end (my fault there) brake callipers, pads, changed the gear lube in the transmission, I too am having the same issue and I've tried the ear to screw driver method and it's a beotch. My next move is to replace the passenger side carrier bearing because it's cheaper than wasting time putting another transmission in but it's my last resort b4 doing that. It sure sounds like its coming from inside the tranny but the carrier itself was loose as hell when i bought the car so prob shot. I ll keep ya posted.

00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

I hear a roaring noise when I turn.


Is the noise coming from your power steering pump which is under your hood, or from down by one of your front tires? If the noise is coming from under your hood you may be low on power steering fluid and you can probably get rid of the noise by simply adding some fluid to your pump. If the sound is coming from one of your front tires you may need to have a wheel bearing replaced. I hope this is helpful.

2004 grand prix roaring noise


It really sounds like a wheel bearing to me, If you drive down a straight smooth road and gently rock the steering wheel back and forth, you can sometimes tell which side it is by the way the car loads the front wheels. I believe this bearing can be purchased as hub and bearing assembly so it is fairly easy to replace but the part is pricey. Remove the wheel, brake caliper and rotor, look through the hub flange access holes and undo the mounting bolts and pull the bearing assembly out of the knuckle.
