Question about 1999 Mitsubishi Galant

3 Answers

Loud roaring noise

My 99 galant makes a loud roaring noise when i accelerate. It seems to be coming from the front end. I had at one time thought it was road noise from old tires. It now has new tires on it and the roaring seems to be getting louder the more I drive it. Strangely enough, it doesn't seem as loud at 50 as it does at lower speeds. It is very loud at 40 to 45. A friend seems to think it is the wheel bearings and makes it unsafe to drive? Opinion, thoughts, suggestions?

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

Roaring in the front end of my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer 4x4


A jet engine type of noise from the engine area usually means the fan clutch is going bad. I don't think the tach is related to this, that could be the stepper motor for the tach going bad.

Loud "tire or wheel" roar on the highway


I certainly would take it back to the shop that performed the brake job and have them investigate. If it was not making the noise prior to the repair there is a good chance the noise is involved with the brakes. A possible loose brake pad, a sticking caliper(caliper pins may need to be lubed) or any number of things could be wrong.
