I have recently replaced rear wheel bearing ( driver's side) and this morning I am staring to hear a humming noise either coming from drivers side or from engine ,,I can only hear noise when driving above...


Could be another wheel bearing. You can jack up each wheel and rotate it to see if there is a difference in other wheels.

I had a noise like that in my Acura. Turned out to be low on transmission oil.
Hope this helps.

Whirring Noise from Right Front While Driving


If you have access to a lift put it on and look at the area where the noise is coming from if you have a small camera try and put it somewhere you may be able to see what it is doing.
Good luck.

2005 kia optima...was driving at 70 mph when i heard a whirring noise of sorts then died. tried starting it up again and all i hear is one clicking noise. smells strong of coolant, but not leaking any...


Have you changed the timing belt? It is supposed to be replaced every 65,000 miles. That would be the first thing to check. IT will cost about 500 USD to have a dealer change it if there is no damage from it breaking. When they break, the pistons can hit the valves and cause lots of damage.

I cannot locate the fuel filter on a Mazda xedos 9 miller cycle engine - where is the fuel filter on a Mazda Xedos 9 Miller cycle engine


Mazda fuel filters are usually found underneath the back seat. At least that's where mine was. I have a Millenia. Good thing back seats are easy to remove.

99 cavalier battery light comes on but new battery....


it sounds to me like it could be the alternator im afraid but the only real cheap way to tell is time. if you continue to drive this and keep a check on wether it still starts or lights dim, with it being a new battery it is going to take a while fot it to go flat. if it does then try not to drive it too much as this will break it and cost you even more.
