SOURCE: Alero loud humming/roaring sound coming from front end.

That's indicative of a wheel bearing, which is why you were told to change that out. However, it's also possible that the carrier bearings in the differential (where the drive axles attach) have gone bad. That happened to me on my 300ZX several years ago, and I had to replace the diff bearings. I would have them checked out somewhere other than a dealer (you'll probably get a better price from an independent shop).

As a sidenote, to be sure it wasn't a wheel bearing, if you hear it quiet down in a turn one way but get louder in a turn the opposite way, it's likely the wheel bearing. If you turn left at speed and it gets louder, then it's the right bearing (since you're loading up that side of the car). If it gets quieter in a right turn, it's the right side (you're unloading that side of the car and not putting as much weight on it, so it doesn't drag as badly). See if you get that symptom just to be sure that the wrong side front wheel bearing wasn't changed.

SOURCE: rattling noise coming from front & back

Matt, sounds like a suspension or exhaust noise. Grab onto exhaust (engine cold) at several locations (car supported securely so u don't get crushed) and wiggle, tug pull, kick, etc to see if u can get it to make any noise from hitting anything. Look for evidence of the exhaust rubbing against something, by looking for shiny metal due to contact w/ something. Also push up and down on the body of the car as violently as possible to simulate going over bumps. Pay close attention to heat shields around or on the exhaust system, if they are loose, they will make a racket.
And, as I said, possibly the suspension is making the noise, but not as likely, pushing up and down on the car body as described above might reproduce the noise. If it isn't the exhaust (my 1st choice), give me more clues if u can. good luck countrycurt0

SOURCE: New brakes still making grinding noise

Sounds like it is your hub bearings.  Jack the car up and check for play in the hub bearings.  More than likely this is your issue and the bearings need to be replaced.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating.

SOURCE: Loud roaring noise in front, steering wheel has vibration, replaced tires didn't help.

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

I was told by a Chevy dealership that you don't rotate 1993 corvette. Is this true?


Most people don't since there are two issues that make it difficult.
First, the tires on the front are a different size than the ones on the rear. Thus you cannot do the standard front-to-rear rotation.

Second, the tires have a directional tread pattern. This means that to rotate the tires from one side to the other they must be dismounted, turned, remounted and re-balanced.

Rotation is good to prevent excessive edge wear than can occur, but the time and cost for rotation on this car can be something to make you think twice about.

Is it better to criss-cross tyres or rotate same side front back when rotating?


There has been a lot of discussion for that over the last 3o or 40 years. Old type "bias" tires were recommended to criss-cross. I personally don't like to change the direction of rotation for radial tires, they wear very quickly for several months if you do that, so I keep them on the same side.

Vibration in front end of Chevy Trailblazer 4x4


Does the shake match tire rotation or drive shaft rotation speed? If it's at tire rotation speed,have the new tires been dynamically balanced on a brand name motorized balancer?Re balance them that way.If a wheel weight has come off you will have a shake.You can also rotate the tires from front to back and see if that helps.Also,brake rotors can be out of balance and even with a perfectly balanced tire,the rotor can throw the balance off.

Tire rotation warning


It has nothing to do with rotating your tires, on your LCD screen when you select maintenance, you can select at how many miles you want to be reminded when to change your oil and when to rotate your tires. Once your vehicle has reached so many miles it'll pop up to remind you as it's sposed to do. While at a stopped position go to that screen, scroll down with your little joystick type knob and when you've selected tire rotation, you click to reset the miles on it back to zero. When you do your oil change you do the same thing. Your screen doesn't know if you've changed your tires or not, only you can tell it that you have.

AWD acting like all wheels are locked up


  The clutch in the transfer case is burnt up and fused together therefor binding the powertrain. If you continue to operate it like this it will destroy the front differential and possibly the rear differential. It was most likely cause by the tires not having equal circumference either due to a mismatch of tires (different brands although the same size is indicated on the side wall will have different measurements,I have seen BF Goodrich tires have a different size because speed rating was different although the model was the same) or lack of tire rotation during the life of the tires.. If the measurements are not with in 1/4 inch around the center of the tread this will cause your concern. Tires should always be replaced at all 4 corners on all wheel drive vehicles.
