Question about 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche

1 Answer

Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.

When you are driving the speed limit it makes a roaring noise. If you let off of the gas the noise picks up a little bit until you get slowed down. I thought it was the fan clutch, so I changed it. Did not make any difference. Put new tires on it and that didn't work. Doesn't seem like a vibration problem as much as just a loud roaring noise when you get it up to speed.

    Also changed out the exhaust and that didn't affect it.

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.

Why does my tacoma fan coil make a roaring noise


If the fan is connected to the water pump, it could be a fan clutch problem. The clutch is not supposed to kick in unless the engine is hot.

06 impala lt makes noise when rolling over 30 mph noise stops when car not moving


Did you recently change your tires? An aggresive tread design, like a mud and snow tread, can create road noise that becomes more noticable at higher speeds. Bad wheel bearings can also produce a "roaring" sound, especially in front wheel drive cars. To check them, jack the front wheel up and spin the tire by hand. It won't spin smoth and even, there will be some resistance and you will hear grinding or crunching.

If your transmission was low enough on fluid, it could conceivably make noise. Also check your U joints or CV joints for play. any play in them will make noise although it is usually accompanied by a feeling of looseness or "jerking", especially when making changes in direction or speed.

There can be a lot of reasons for noise, but start by checking these things first. Hope this helps.

Bring in the car to a PROFESSIONAL shop. Mention your problem & ask about a wheel balance, alignment & make your problem clear before any work is done. Mention bearings etc. Ive dealt w millions of csrs at my own private shop & that would be your best approach. NO JIFFY LUBE TYPE SHOP

I have a roaring sound when i start the envoy what can it be? when I put it in neutral the noise goes away and too if i have been driving it for awile the noise goes away it only roars when I start it...


That's the fan clutch for the radiator fan. It has a thick fluid in it and in this cold weather it is ispecially thick. This makes the fan turn almost at engines speed and that makes the roaring noise. After it has been spinning a while, the fluid gets warm and gets thinner. that makes the fan turn slower than the engine. This is normal and needs no attention.

When driving it makes a loud roaring sound, thought it had bad brakes but after they had been replaced the sound was still there


Is the roar coming from the front tire area? If so, you may need bearing hubs. You need to be absolutely positive where the noise originates from and if turning corners or different speeds affect the noise. If you hold a steady..say 50 mph and shift into N and coast does the noise stop, if so, you may be looking at a tranny prob.
