I would suspect you have a bad wheel hub (bearing) assembly. The bearings will roar/growl when they start to go bad. I've seen the bearings actually disappear from the hubs because it got so bad. Also, the ABS light will come on when the bearings go bad. I would take it to a mechanic before it gets any worse. BTW, GMs are known to have wheel hubs go bad.

I hope I was able to help you out.

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

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.

SOURCE: axle roar

Could be any one of the bearings in the rear axle. Suggest taking it to a reputable transmission shop to get it diagnosed further.

Roaring sound front left wheel, maybe a wheel bearing?


It could be the the wheel bearing...again, as you said. I also would like to know if you had the front end aligned when you changed the wheel bearing. If the tires have excessive wear on the outside or inside tread, you are out of alignment and BOTH wheel bearings need to be changed! It could also be the brakes wearing thin...check it out!

2002 camery roaring from front seems louder when slowing down. It is not brakes


check wheel bearing...transmission output shaft bearing. noise is louder because when bearing slow down, they get louder from worn down ball bearing inside the cage, space is developing between the ball bearing..caused by lack of lubricate, or just worn out bearings

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.

I have a 2005 kia sorento 80,000 miles a couple of weeks ago this roaring noise comes from the rear end and seems to have got louder with the tire rotation


Check to see if the surface of the tires have even wire, because that will give off a moaning sound that you are hearing while the car is driving. The only other logic that comes to mind could be rear wheel bearings.
