Question about Cars & Trucks
I started my car tonight and the engine(which has been making a little noise when driving, not much) roared super loud and was violently shaking. i turned the car of and swept my foot under the gas pedal to make sure there wasnt something stuck. started again and it still happened. turned off again and sat 2 min tried again and still happened... turned the defroster off to listen and the roaring stopped. what is wrong?

wheel bearings usually dont go at once, they progress. i would say to do it as soon as can so as not to risk ruining other parts like the wheel hub which is pressed into the bearing to support the wheel. approx. cost is $150 for bearing and about 1.5 hrs to complete. (all dependant on shop)

One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.
