Knocking Noise from Front End Toyota Corolla 2004


Ensure the wheel nuts and Axle nuts are properly torqued to the specification. Lift up the front wheels, place supports under the car and do the following:
- Sit if front of right wheel, slightly move it right and left and feel any abnormal noise if coming out of it. If click-click or Tuck-Tuck sound is observed it could be due to the excessive play in the tie rod end, rack end, ball joint wheel bearing or U joint. Next hold the Tire with your one hand at the top and with other hand at the bottom. Shake the Tire inside out and feel any noise or play. If play is observed, it could be the worn out ball joint or the wheel bearing. Now hit the Tire at the top with rubber hammer and observe any rattling noise coming from near the center of the wheel. If you could listen to the extra noise it could be due to the dried up caliper pins. Grease the pins with graphite grease. If all is found fine, similarly check the left wheel and repair as necessary.

My neighbor's 1998 Cavalier is making a strange noise. It has automatic transmission, new tires, and 155,000 miles. When idling at a stop, it sounds fine, but when it starts movig and hits 15 or 20 mph...


Try getting on an open road, get up to about 45 MPH or where ever the noise is loudest. Put the car in neutral and turn the engine off. You can roll in a straight line for a long time. Make sure nodody is around you. If the sound stops when the engine is off, then the noise is coming from the motor. If the sound is still there, its got to be coming from the tires. Id guess a wheel bearing.

I have a 2005 5.3 Chevy Tahoe. It has about 119,000 miles. About a month ago I noticed a humming sound coming from under the hood. So low that I must turn my radio off and let my windows up to hear. I...


Do you have to be moving before you can hear the noise? If not remove your belt and start your rig and see if you still hear the noise. Don't run it for too long as you may overheat it. If the noise is gone well then you will know that it is something that is driven by the belt such as a idler pulley or tendioner pulley making some noise and may need replaced. Worn belts can make noises. A bearing going out in an alternator can make your noise. Water pump? AC compressor? If the noise is still there with the belt off then you know to look elsewhere. Check your wheel bearings and front CV joints and axles.

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.


Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

Whining sound in front end while driving seems to get louder when speed is above 60kmh


It could be chopped tires or a front wheel bearing. Rub your hand around the front and rear tires and see if they are un-even like a wash board. If they are they need replacing and will make a wierd whining noise that changes with the speed.The wheel bearings can also make this noise so check the tires and go from there. I hope this helps you.....Dan
