2002 ford focus has howling noise coming from rear end under 55 mph? Rotated tires still making noise, tire shop said it would stop after few hundred miles(sd it was coupling from overwear for not getting tires rotated as scheduled) just drove 700 miles at various speeds no noise then!

SOURCE: the car makes a howling noise while driving it

well did the noise start after the tires were rotated?could be choppy tires,,,if not ,i strongly think it sounds like a bad wheel bearing,,,,if you drive and while its making the noise turn left and right quick and see if the noise gets louder and which way turning makes it louder,,if you turn leftand it gets louder its usually the right wheels bearing as you are putting load on it, if it makes the noise louder while turning right its the left wheel bearing,,,got it

Just purchased this car for my son. The rear end vibrates at speeds over 65 MPH but runs fine at lower speeds. Had tires rotated but they are more than 50% worn.


Again, if the vibration wasn't apparent before the tire rotation, look for a broken belt in the tires, bent rim or perhaps a wheel weight has gone AWOL.

Engine whine, low howl from under car, rear end noise


well i dont know about the howl but i would definitely get the rotors resurfaced they are not supposed to stop at one point if the tire is in the air and spin it by hand the tire should come to a smooth slow stop and bearings are very tricky to spot i would replace them just to be on the safe side

Probably has a bad tire on it. Take it to a local tire shop and have them check the tires for slipped belt or irregular tread wear.

My neighbor's 1998 Cavalier is making a strange noise. It has automatic transmission, new tires, and 155,000 miles. When idling at a stop, it sounds fine, but when it starts movig and hits 15 or 20 mph...


Try getting on an open road, get up to about 45 MPH or where ever the noise is loudest. Put the car in neutral and turn the engine off. You can roll in a straight line for a long time. Make sure nodody is around you. If the sound stops when the engine is off, then the noise is coming from the motor. If the sound is still there, its got to be coming from the tires. Id guess a wheel bearing.

There is a loud howling noise coming from the rear end of my 2006 Chevy equinox. At first I though it was the tread on my new tires but it's definitely getting louder and isolated to only the rear end....


If it's a All Wheel Drive then it could be a gear oil leak that has caused a bearing in the drive train to fail. Just adding gear oil won't fix the problem, but may limit the damage until it's repaired.
If it's a Front Wheel Drive, then you may have a Wheel Hub Bearing Assembly failing. This usually has a ABS [ Anti-Lock Brake ] light associated with it.
Either is dangerous and should be checked ASAP.

I Had the tires rotated on my 2008 mazda cx9 at 13,000 miles in our local shop here,then i noticed a humming sound coming from front of vehicle and only when it approaches 50 to 55 mph,could it possibly be...


The noise is most likely caused by the different wear pattern on the tire that came from the rear of the car. The difference in the alignment between the front and rear suspension systems causes the tires to wear accordingly. It will take some time for the tires to wear in to their new environment. The noise should go away gradually. You should also check your tire pressure to make sure you don't have an improperly inflated tire.

Noise like wheelbearing up to 55mph jacked up car and spun wheels but can hear no noise


if noise goes away at 55 not bearings, check for tire cupping. Move tires front to rear or side to side and see if noise moves. You will not detect bearing noise when jacked up with no load on bearing.
