Sounds like it is a rear wheel bearing going bad.
Jack it up and spin each wheel separately to find which side it is

  • Jack and hold the spring on the strut OR hold part of the suspension close to the wheel...
    THE bad one will have a vibration. You dont need to spin them FAST to do this tes

00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

Humming noise coming from front end. It starts about 20 mph and the pitch gets higher as speed is increased?


More than likely it may be a wheel bearing, if the sound gets louder. Jackup the side where you think the sound is coming from, and spin the wheel to see. You can jack up one tire and get in vehicle put foot on brake start engine then put it in drive with foot on brake, release brake slowly. Wheel will spin and you can tell if thats the one.( put E-brake on first ) Let down and do the same on the other side to check it. As long as one wheel is on the ground the car will not move. Then you can tell if its a wheel bearing or not. God-Bless you and your family!

I have a whirring or griding in my drivetrain. I can coast donw a hill and let the engine idle and I still get the noise. It doesn't sound any different going around corners and gets louder as the speed...


this sounds like(no pun intended) you have a wheel hub bearing assembly failing. they will start a whirring or humming noise and then a growling or grinding noise the worse they get. from your description it is a rotational noise and gets louder and maybe a higher pitch as the vehicle speed increases. have this checked out right away so no further damage is done. they are not cheap assemblies as most GM and Saturn vehicles have the ABS sensor built into them(if your Vue has ABS).

Low level growling noise at rt. front wheel increases with speed. No change if in or out of gear. Can start hearing noise begining about 38 mph. very slight vibration Car has 77,000 miles and is well...


first rotate the tires see if there is a change. If that does not have a desirable effect there may be a worn wheel bearing,take note if the sound or vibration gets louder as you turn a corner, try left turns as well as right turns if the noise increases it is a wheel bearing.
