Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Bravada
We have replaced all four tires - we were told they were cupped - and had the wheel bearings fixed - still has a very loud roaring noise - can anybody give me an idea of what it may be?
Hi, My motto is that i will tell you what others won't and it sucks cause it affects ratings but nobody wants to answer a question like yours. The reason: Tooooo many variables and no sense. First, the cupped tires thing is BS. The cupped tires sound more like a horse on its last legs. Roaring is more like a wind thing, which points to a door or window seal or a leak in the exhaust. It could also be something aerodynamic, like a mirror that is not airfoiling for some reason. The best advice I can give you for something like this is to keep investigating till you pinpoint the source. I had an explorer that was perfectly quiet until I put the crossbars on the luggage rack. If the bars were too far forward they disturbed the airflow over the moonroof and the thing would moan like a tomcat on a saturday nite. I have a buddy that had an suv that he changed the airfilter with a non oem and had less pleats and it would howl at different speeds. It took awhile to track this one down. So be patient, look, listen and feel, get your whole family or some friends to ride with you and keep checking it out till you narrow it down. Also look for other symtoms as cupping on your tires would cause vibration. Good Luck and i hope this Fixsya!
