Question about 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt

1 Answer

Roaring noise with my 2006 Chevy Cobalt?

My 2006 Chevy Cobalt (it's a rebuilt wreck from a front end collision) makes this awful roaring noise when I drive it. It tends to get louder when I turn right, meaning the problem may be on the drivers side somewhere. It used to never do this until I took a trip one day. I have replaced all four tires and it still makes the noise. My boyfriend said he checked all wheel bearings and they seem to be fine. Could it possibly still be the wheel bearings anyway or is there something else that I should probably be aware of when I take it in to have it looked at? Please help!

While the wheel bearings still feel tight they are the cause of your problem, after a collision most cars suffer from this problem depending on the speed of the accident the forces encountered during a sudden stop causes intense stress and fatigue on the bearings

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

There is a bearing, somehwere that is the most likely cause.

Does anything alter the sound, accelleration, decell, moderate turning (thinking to unload one side and load the other side of the vehicle)?

My vote would be for a bearing, and they are hard to tell until you tear the offending bearing apart...

Well, that depends, do you have front-wheel drive or rear wheel drive? With front wheel drive, you most likely have a CV joint problem on the drive axle. The best way to find out how to do ANY repair to any make or model car is to buy (or borrow) a chilton or hanes manual from an auto parts store (or library). They are not very expensive and save you tons of money, by helping you fix the most common, and many uncommon problems, step-by-step.

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.
