Hub noise 2000 chevy cavalier ...was hearing hub noise (hmm) when turning left noise would go away . I replaced left hub and noise is still there. Put the car back up on the jack stands took tires off still a little hard to here over engine/exust but at idle and axle turning could here a noise like those big marble things people move in there hand to relax/stress balls hitting each other. It was coming from the end of the axle where it butts up with tranny Any ideas.Could it be the ball and track in the housing thats hold them? Bad engine/tranny mout leeting wieght on to axle. Would any thing else thats bad make the sound that a bad hub makes? Any help would be greatly apprciated

You have a bad wheel bearing, when you turn away from the bad bearing the wheel bearing is un-loaded and quiets down.

How do you turn traction control on and off on a 2000 chevy cavilier


try taking to a safe place with plenty of space to ride and stop. when it is wet or on gravel. accelerate and then try to stop moderately hard. if it turns on, it should be working fine. but, my guess is a hub bearing. do you hear and noises coming from either side of car during certain speeds or whenever you are making slight turns?

Undue pressure on the hub bearings on a 1997 Cavalier


ok so I have a 97 chevy Cavaliar convertable. And when I first got it, it was making a grinding sound when ever I drove it. the sound seemed to be coming from the passanger front tire and when I would turn right the sound was still there but when I turned left the sound would go away during the turn. Well naturally I thought the bearing was going out on the side. so I bought a new one it came pre lubed and put together, in the box was also a spacer it just looked like a metal disc. well when I went to put the new bearing on the car who ever had done so previously had left the spacer off. i wasn't sure were that spacer went but I tried putting on the front and it fit so i just finished and put it back together. to my surprise the grinding was still there. after many surfing and calling around I discovered that the spacer was ment to go behind not infront once I changed that and yes it was a pain in the *** i put the car back together and car was like new. hope that helps

Gear type noise when driving.noise changes with speed of car.stops when car is not moving.2000 pontiac gran prix


Hi, if this noise changes when turning left or right, (gets louder or quieter), there is a good chance a front hub is bad. For instance, if you turn right, and the noise gets louder,the left hub is bad, and vice versa for the other side. You can normally jack it up, spin the wheel and hear the noise, or wiggle the wheel, and see if it has play. Good luck...

Ive got a 2000 chevy cavalier that just started having a grinding noise in the front end. it only grinds when i turn the wheel slightly to the left when driving. if the steering wheen is centered it dont...


Sounds like there may be a problem with the left front wheel bearing/hub assembly easy to replace only takes about 30-45 min and about $55-125 in parts. Jack both front whels up and with it in drive turn wheels back and forth and listen to each side. I am pretty sure it is the left side but check both.

2000 chevy cavalier, when turning left makes


Check the under fender. Sometimes the black plastic will come loose around the wheel area. Turn your wheels to the left and see if the tire are rubbing close to any part of the fender area.

Grumbling noise in front drivers side of car.Worst at 30-40 mph.


Sound more like the wheel/hub bearing. An axle will usually make a clicking noise when turning, and be quiet when going straight. It probably wont break by may but it may get louder. Get it checked asap.

04 cavalier makes grinding noise in front end turn the wheel to the right grinding gets worse turn the wheel to the left grinding stops. it sounds worse at 40mph and above. what would cause this?


3 things to check:
Worn disc brake pads, grinding against the rotor.
Wheel bearing
cv joint.
You posted grinding gets worse turning to the right, the problem is the driver side wheel, but it would be best to have both wheeles checked.

Wheel noise or roar in front end with increased road speed


THIS NOISE IS USUALLY THE HUB. HAVE SOMEONE GO WITH YOU ON A TEST DRIVE. GET THE ROARING TO HAPPEN AT ITS LOUDEST AND GENTLY SWERVE THE CAR LEFT AND RIGHT. DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU THINK BOTH HUBS ARE BAD. LIFT THE FRONT OF THE CAR AND PUT IT ON JACK STANDS. PULL OUTWARD ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TIRE WHILE PUSHING INWARD ON THE TOP OF THE WHEEL. IF THE WHEEL MOVES EXCESSIVELY YOU FOUND THE HUB THAT IS NOISY. USING A MECHANICS STETHOSCOPE YOU CAN SOMETIMES HEAR A ROARING TYPE NOISE ON THE BACKING PLATE SIDE OF THE HUB WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING AND THE TRANS IN GEAR. TRY NOT TO GET THE SPEED UP TOO FAR ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN HEAR THE NOISE AT LOW SPEED, YOU DON'T WANT TO VIBRATE OFF THE STANDS.
