Could be any one of the bearings in the rear axle. Suggest taking it to a reputable transmission shop to get it diagnosed further.

00Linc ls rear roaring noise new tires or could be mechanical issue


most likely a mechanical issue
if it is harmonic ( comes or goes according to acceleration or deceleration ) it will be pinion bearing failing
if it is constant but more so when going around corners it could be axle bearing on one side
if the tires are at the correct tire pressure with an average tread pattern , the chances of tires being a cause is remote

Vibration in rear of driveline subaru liberty wgn 91


You didn't say anything about tires and wheels, have you rotated the tires to see if the problem moves to the front of the car ?
If the car is 20+ years old, the mounts for the transaxle could be worn enough to cause a vibration. And one of the axles/driveshaft could be bent.

I have a 1999 Mercury Grand Marquis. i noticed a little diff fluid coming from the right rear wheel. I changed the wheel seal and axle bearing and put it all back together and filled the rear diff with...


first swap to a front tyre to eliminate that issue


new bearing shouldn't be rumbling
to get the bearing square on and home
did you use a press to fit the bearing to the rear axle
or tube method ?

and did the seal kit have this nifty plastic seal fitter so axle didn;t rip the seal surface

Roaring is heard from front end when going speed


I have a 98 Ponitac Grand Prix GT. Soon as you start going it starts roaring. Gets loader the faster you go till 70 mph. When I am turning to the right a little while going 60 mph the sounds quiets down. Only to the right. I have replaced both wheel bearings, got brand new tires, new brakes. Didnt stop the roaring. Would it be cv axles, rack & pinion, transmission, etc?

Tires are making a roaring noise while driving


Either the tires have slippe belts in them, mainly old or worn tires. Or more common is one of your wheel bearings is going bad. Could also be an axle shaft. Jack up the front of the vehicle and grab the wheel and see if you can move it up/down or side to side. see if there is excess play to check wheel bearing issues

AC/Heat Fan runs continuously and Rear end roaring noise


Sounds like the wheel bearing on the right rear hub may be defective, that would cause the noise if the tires are ok. As far as the fan goes not sure this isn't working as designed.

Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.


One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.

Front End Problems


first i would check the tires , are they cupped or chopped on the tread? run your hand over the tread and see if it feels rough and uneven. take the truck to a auto repair shop and have them jack both front and rear axles off the ground, put the truck in 2 wheel drive and run the speedometer to the speed you usually hear the roaring noise, if you don't hear the noise , put the truck in 4 wheel drive, turn off the traction assist if it has one and run it to the speed you would hear the noise. if you hear the roaring noise with tires off the ground, the problem is in the drivetrain, (engine, transmission, transfer case, u-joints, differentials or the front left or right cv halfshafts or u-joints). the older models (97 98) had the front two driveshafts from the differential turning all the time, they engaged in 4 wheel drive from the transfer case and a solenoid on the front differential. depending on the miles you have on this truck, the most likely areas i would look at would be the tires, u-joints/cv joints, and front and rear wheel bearings. thanks and good luck.
