1. Your tires maybe low on air
2. The tires need balancing
3. Since your care is FWD, make sure you check to see that you don't have any broken boots on your axles. The lack of grease on those joints will cause a lot of noise. Almost like a moaning, it gets pretty annoying

Hope that helps!!

V belt drive and wheel bearings for front wheels


What Is a Wheel Bearing? What Is a Wheel Bearing? A wheel bearing is a set of steel balls held together by a metal ring called a race. They help wheels spin fast with as little friction as possible. They are used on all kinds of vehicles, from bicycles to aircraft and cars. On a car, a wheel bearing rides on a metal axle shaft and fits tightly inside the hub, which is a hollow chunk of metal at the center of the wheel. The hub holds the lug bolts that you use to bolt the tire onto the wheel. The wheel bearing is pressed into the hub from the back
What Does a Bad Wheel Bearing Sound Like? When bearings are damaged and making noise, it's hard to diagnose because you have to drive the vehicle in order to reproduce the sound. Here are tips to help you find the source of the problem: When the seal on the wheel bearing is broken or damaged, the noise starts out very faint and becomes louder over time. It sounds like the noise that your tires make when hitting a rumble strip on the highway, just not quite as loud, something like the sound of playing cards flapping against bicycle spokes
  • While driving down the road about 40 mph, sway the car side to side slowly, shifting the weight of the vehicle from one side to the other. Do not drive crazy or cause the car to spin out, just sway it gently. Notice whether the noise gets louder or softer. If the noise is a little less if you turn right, the damaged bearing may be on the left, or vice versa.
  • Note that tires that are "chopped" or "scalloped" (worn in patches) also make a rhythmic noise that increases in speed. This sounds very similar to a bad wheel bearing. Look at your tires as well if you hear this kind of noise. Why Do Wheel Bearings Make Noise? Most wheel bearings are hardened steel and can withstand a lot of abuse. Its two worst enemies are heat and water. Heat caused by lack of lubrication can destroy a wheel bearing. Water that penetrates a sealed bearing will also destroy it.
    Most wheel bearings manufactured today are sealed. They come from the factory pressed together as an assembly: front race, bearing set, center race, bearing set, and outer race, with seals on both the front and rear. Seals protect bearings from the elements, water, and debris, and they also seal in the high-temperature grease the bearing needs. When a seal is broken or damaged, the wheel bearing will fail and start making noise.
    the Source of Bearing Noise , if you really want to know whether your noise is a bearing noise and you can get the car up on a lift, you can use an improvised stethoscope (actually a big screwdriver) to listen to the sound and find out where it's coming from. Have someone in the vehicle start it and run it at about 40 mph. Using a long screwdriver or stethoscope, rest it on the hub near each wheel bearing. Careful! Don't let the tool touch a moving part, or it could fly up and hit you. Listen through the handle of the screwdriver (or through the stethoscope) for the noise, and I guarantee you will be able to determine which bearing is bad Replacing Your Wheel Bearing Wheel bearings do not fail immediately, and usually give you some time before you need to have them replaced. I suppose if a wheel bearing failed completely it could lock up and prevent the car from moving. Then again, my daughter drove on a noisy bearing for six months and nothing happened except that it got louder and louder.
    You shouldn't necessarily have the bearings on both sides replaced. Just because one fails is no reason to think the others are about to; bearings should last a long time.
    Replacing one is a bit expensive because of the labor involved. There are a lot of parts to remove and get out of the way before you can get to the wheel bearing,

What can be possible problem be? at 10-15 mph very slight vibration in steering wheel and dosn't seem to roll right


Blister or broken steel braid in tire. Lug nut torqued properly? If you suspect tire, move it to the back and see if the noise/vibration migrates with it. The only other guess would be your wheel bearing is failing.

Can any 1 please help !!!Bad noise & vibration left side.When started car,and start driving there is a bad noise & vibration in side of the car.Sounded from left side,the faster you go the har


Could be wheel bearing. Make sure your tire isn't rubbing anything. Make sure you haven't blown any of the steel belts in your tire. Typically if it was your bearing it would have slowly gotten louder, not just all of a sudden unless you hit something. Good luck

When driving I hear a grinding noise from the rear and it does not get louder as I go faster


You will need the u-joints looked at. If those break, your tire and hub will pop off the axle and go rolling past you. Not fun!

When im driving the car moans and moans even louder when i turn the wheel, the faster i drive the louder the sound gets


You should check the power steering fluid level first. However, you said the noise gets louder if you turn the wheel. That sounds like a front hub bearing. To check the front and rear hubs, raise the tires off the ground one at a time. Try to move the tire in & out at the top, sides and bottom. spin the tire if you can. Only a tiny amount of play, if any, is acceptable. If you hear or feel rumbling or roughness when turning the tire, the hub is bad and must be replaced

How do you know when a belt itensioner is bad


The drive belt tensioner or the timing belt tensioner both have an internal bearing. When that bearing starts to go bad it will get noisy and the noise will get louder and louder as time goes on, until you replace it. Good luck :O)

Noise from the rear diff.


What sort of noise have you got ,as most diff noises are due to the Meshing of the Crown Wheel and Pinion as the Pinion can turn at 7 times to the 1 of the C/Wheel and (even a lot more) ,so it wears the hard casing off on the thrust side and causes the whine as you drive and it gets louder the faster you go ,, or if a clunk /clunk/clunk,and goes faster as you drive then its a broken tooth on either pinion or C/Wheel, which you will find if you drain the oil and check the drain plug as most drain plugs have a magnit fitted to them to hold any steel in the oil.
