My car sounds like a truck

When I get to a certain speed 30mph, my sportage sounds like a truck. I was told it could be a bad tire. Could it be something else in the wheel?

Wheel bearing maybe, or axel shaft, or breaks.

Sounds (pun intended) like a problem with the differential (that globe that connects to the drive-shaft and to the two rear tires. Maybe, one wheel has bad bearings, adding resistance into the differential.

It sounds like a bad tire, possibly a broken belt. Check the sidewalls and tread of all the tires for bulges. If good it probably is a bad wheel bearing. Try to isolate from where and what side. If the noise gets louder turning one direction but not the other, then more likely a bearing. If it stays constant both directions but gets louder with speed, then suspect a tire.

Car makes a low pitch sound starting at 30mph & getting louder as speed increases. 1999 Buick Park Avenue Ultra w/ 3.8liter.


Check for uneven tire wear, make sure the wheels are properly balanced, check for proper tire inflation.
Low pitched noise that increases with speed is related to tires, wheel bearings, etc. Start with the easy and cheap remedies first... tire inflation, wear etc.

Check for a clogged CATALYTIC CONVERTER. This will cause the same symptoms you are describing. While in PARK with the engine running, have a helper increase the engine speed, while you listen to the exhaust sound from the tailpipe. If it has a "WHOOSH" sound to it , could be clogged. Hope this helps.
