Sounds like you are losing a wheel bearing. PARK IT!! until you have a mechanic diagnose it. If you lose a wheel assembly while driving, you could get dead quick!

Rides loud once you get up to 20 mph sounds like grinding on front passenger side


perform this test, SAFELY! while driving at 20-30 mph lightly pull steering wheel to left, then to right, if sound worsens, then gets better in the other direction, I believe you have a wheel bearing problem. this will be a hub bearing assembly, and is not a difficult repair.

Could be low on oil, trans doesnt have fluid, wheel bearings are gone, or could be something stuck under the vehicle and either the tires or the drive axle is rubbing against it.

Grinding noise front end.


I say it's the CV joints. You have to jack up under the lower A-Arm, to take the spring pressure off of it, to check them.

(Use jack stands, and wheel chocks behind the rear tires. Emergency brake On. Work on a hard level surface. Be SAFE! Trucks can be replaced, YOU cannot!)

Rumbling & grinding under front end


Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

Rattling noise


I have a 98 blazer that makes similar sounds but it's pieces of the dust shield off the rear wheel assembly that got down inside the brake rotor. Only happens when the truck is going forward

98 Chevy Lumina has front end noise (rumble) from 10 mph and above. It gets increasingly louder as you accelerate. It does not change by coasting or applying the brakes. Also does it in reverse but not...


I may be a wheel bearing. Try shifting the weight of the car on the front tires by turning the wheelslightly while driving about 30 MPH. Don't turn enough to change lanes, just enough to put the load on the outside bearing. It may quiet down in one direction. The failed bearing is generally the side that you turned to in order to make the noise go away. Say the noise goes away when you steer to the right, the failed bearing is usually the right one.

You can also check for play by jacking up the car and shaking the tire. There should be no play.
