Wheel bearing or brake is malfunctioning. Take off the wheel and inspect brake assembly for proper movement to rule it out.

    Thanks for using FixYa. Your Rating of my solution to your problem was THANKS FOR TRYING. I would appreciate a re-evaluation of your rating - as the answer I gave was correct. There are not many experts that provide answers to FREE questions beacuse anything under HELPFUL reduces their overall rating percentage.



    The description FixYa uses for the rating system is misleading - a THANKS FOR TRYING means the answer was not helpful in solving your problem.



    We are working toward a better rating description to help alleviate the bad ratings.



    I took the time and answered your question to the best of my ability and request a change to at least HELPFUL.



    Thank you.

Something Humming

Will the front driveshaft cause humming if it is free wheeling


The noise your hearing is most likely a hub bearing It will look like axle shaft is moving because the bearing is what the axle sits into if the noise changes when driving and turn wheel to left and right if so if you turn left and noise changes then your right frt bearing is bad and vise a versa.

If it gets worse as you're turning right, but not left - Most definitely a wheel bearing on the right side. The right turn puts more stress on the right wheel - louder noise - turn left and release the stress - no noise. You can also lift the vehicle up on a jack and listen to the wheel and hear the bearing in the hub making noise.

Humming noise from front drivers side tire, is it the tie rod? how do I fix?


hello
most of the time when there is a humming noise other then a brake noise you have a wheel bearing bad the best way to tell if it is a wheel bearing making noise is while you are driving down the road and the vehicle is making the noise slightly turn the steering wheel left to right if the noise changes at all replace the wheel bearings gm cars are notorious for wheel bearing
good luck chris

Whenever I drive I continue to hear a loud roaring noise. Is this wheel bearing problem or is it something else


Quite often it is a bad wheel bearing, a lot of chevy's are notorious for them. A wheel bearing will usually create a growling type noise that is more prominent at around 40-60MPH. If its a wheel bearing you should notice a change in pitch when turning in one direction, for example if you have a bad right side wheel bearing it will be noisy driving straight ahead, then get louder when turning LEFT. If you turn right the noise softens. The weight distribution of the front end will be greater on the right side when turning left. Of course the works in the opposite direction. If the noise remains constant going straight and turning it could be a bad tire. Visually check the tire for pressure and bulges in the side wall. You didn't mention what type or model vehicle you have, because in some cases the rear wheel bearing could be causing the noise.

Recently noticed when driving over 40mph, I hear a loud humming like tire tread noise, coming from the front. When I'm turning right it gets worse. Turn left and it virtually vanishes. Is this the...


yes.this means the left wheel bearing is bad, because when you turn right the pressure is pushing down on the left wheel causing noise and when you turn left the pressure then pushes down on the right side removing pressure from the left side causing noise to stop.. this is why when you turn one way or the other the noise stops and starts.

Vibration/Humming/Grinding noises when stopping or turning left.


when turning left vehicle distributes weight to right front wheel bearing causing load. since u describe a noise in right front while driving straight i would suspect failed right front wheel bearing. see if your noise changes/goes away while turning right that should tell u 4 sure

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...


Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

Steering creeks when turning left or right. front wheel noise.


My advise is when u get a humming noise when banking left or right. Its beter to change both left and right wheel bearing and ball joints. Cause if u think about it those parts are put on at the same time . So if u think about it they have the same where in Terre . left or right hope this helps you.
