It is most likely a bad wheel bearing. I had my rear passenger wheel bearing break at 75000 miles. get it replaced and when you that, replace rotors and brakes to be on the safe side

a noise from a diff are , normally a high frequency harmonic sound while driving is from diff pinion bearings
if you decelerate and you get a noise normally as a low grumble ( low drumm noise )to a frequency noise is again the diff pinion bearings
you can distinguish the noise from power on to deceleration
the noise can be most noticeable with a slight load ( 2 people travelling at a steady speed say 60- 80 klm/hr) as a steady but harmonic pitch variation
the noise varies as the load is transferred from the bearing immediately behind the pinion gear to the bearing immediately behind the drive flange or in your case driven gear from the gear box
it is caused by a slight movement of the pinion which varies the correct mesh with the crown wheel , resulting in the whining sound
sorry but noise sounds are very hard to describe

Light Vibration and Humming sound in cabin


no posts on this old post. but no year, so .... as an example
to others posting, NO year?, NO answers.
but... here you go.
NOISE MOVING, ONLY !: (dangerous tests)
NO noise , in neutral, guning throttle like mad man.
or doing same in drive, all brakes set, wheels chocked,
DO the FSM A/T trannny Stall test. 5seconds max !, at 0MPH this puts full load on most the parts, MAKE NOISE NOW?
moving.....
cutting the engine , depends? in neutral? or coasting in gear.
risk 2, accidentally hitting park doing the test.
risk1:
selecting neutral and cutting the key (danger if the steering locks ) do so only off road, and no people about, no turns., no cliffs, no trees, no rocks. (flat desert or parking lot, at early hours..etc.)
Safety first.....
"and it goes off."<<< meaning the noise stops? key off?
btw:
the wheel bearing are under full load, now.
in turns the wheel bearing are under more load (huge in fact)
and the CVs run all the time.
but, if goes off means. no sound , it can be. (sure not wheel bearings)
1: exhaust parts, rattling. (running)
2: engine noise. (lots of possible) , but see test above.
3: A/T trans noise (its A/T right?) bad front, A/T pump? or TC?
or 150 other vastly complex A/T parts. bad.
when coasting , the CV do turn all the rear planetary gears ( and axle gears)
so they are not bad, as the quiet sound ending , proves.

keep in mind most parts, under torque love to make noise.
so cutting the engine, cuts most that torque, and hides the bad parts, with silence.

i use and remote electronic ear to find moving noise.
electronic stethoscope.
it has small microphones that clamp to suspected parts.
this removes most the danger in testing.

good luck finding it, if it still makes noise.

Slight noise when turning left. RF hub bearing?


Wheel bearing by the sounds of it. These cars are known for wheel bearings going bad. Hope this helps

Loud rear rubbing sound at speed.


It sounds like your rear brgs are "tracking". This means that the outer casing of the brgs are turning a bit at regular intervals in the housing. It does not happen when coasting, only under load. Col

I have a 98 ford f150 4wd rear diff is howling bad under load and coast no noise at no load had bad rear axles and brgs even though i didnt think this would fix it i replaced them as i expected, no...


the bad bearings and axles probably caused damage or wear to the gears / pinion when under load the bearings keep the axles straight and keeps downward pressure from loads off the gears and gear bearings --look at gear mesh will probably be off very slightly and not from backlash shims but from ring gear bearings or pinion bearing damaged

the leak is probably a separate issue from the noise. is the leak very bad? can you tell if it's engine oil or transmission lube/fluid? most likely the rear main bearing seal needs replacing. the noise is most likely the clutch release bearing. you should replace all components of the clutch assembly which include; clutch plate, pressure plate, release bearing and piolot bearing. also have the fly wheel resurfaced. while the trans is out, you can check the rear main seal and the trans input shaft seal and replace accordingly.

I own a 06 chevrolet 4wd. it makes an awful roaring noise


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...

Low growling noise in front end


typically, this sounds like a wheel bearing. To test, the noise can often be altered by accellerating /decelerating, and more evident by turning the vehicle.

The truning process is to put load on one side, then the other. if the right side has a damaged bearing, for example, the noise would be noticibly altered (less in this case) when turning to the right. Load would be slightly less. Testing speed in the area of 25 to 35 mph.

Noise from the rear of my 97 crv when turning left and right


Hi

Sounds more a rear wheel bearing problem ?

Check for excessive play, and noise from both rear wheel bearings and hubs, with the vehicle jacked up and supported safely.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice...Thanks... John.
