Question about 2000 Chrysler Town & Country

Noise from rear axle

I have a 2000 Chrysler T&C van with 121,000 miles. Recently, I noticed a noise like loud tire noise from the back of the vehicle while riding down the road. It doesn't seem too bad until about 25MPH, then whines about the same at any speed. I just replaced the tires (that were cupped) and the problem is still there. Any ideas?

You most likely have a bad wheel bearing. Jack the car up to the extent that the rear wheel is of the ground pull in and out on the top of the tire if you feel any free free play or loosness do not drive the vehicle untill you get it fixed. Check both sides as it can be dificult to determine wich side the noise is comeing from.

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

Sounds like your serpentine belt is slipping. There should be a diagram in front of your radiator where your hood latch is. That should show you how to tighten it up or replace it

I have a constant wobble at the steering wheel when driving in a straight line which does disapear when turning also the steering is sometimes jumpy and also have a loud sqealing noise on either full lock...


The noise at full lock is the pump screaming for mercy. All power steering pumps will complain a bit if the steering is held at full lock. Now, if the belt to the pump is loose, it will scream even louder, because holding the steering at full lock will cause the belt to slip. There is also a technical service bulletin for your vehicle concerning loud power steering noise which involves replacing the fluid lines and.or fluid cooler. This is not cause for concern, but an aggravation to the ears.

The "wobble" thing in the steering wheel is a whole different story. If it is wobbling all the time, it would almost have to be a tire/wheel or axle problem. I know you said this is not the problem, but I think you need to look again. Try rotating the tires to the back and see if the wobble changes. A very severerly warped brake rotor can cause this also, but will be much worse during braking. A bad axle shaft can also cause a wobble in the steering. This is consistent with your description of the problem changing during turns...A bad axle shaft can do this. Also check for looseness in the front wheel bearings.

My thoughts exactly. Could also be an alignment issue (rear). It could be as simple as poorly balanced tires. Take it to a trusted mechanic. BTW: Just passed 125K on my EX.
