Bearings is a good place to look also look at the CV joint and boot makse sure there still lubercated also make sure the boot plastic is not cracked and is free of oil and dirt but wasing it down with the hose and with the tire off so you can access this area better. A bearing is not going to cost you that much for this model and also use bearing Grease and use the whole can or a good part of the can to make sure its well lubercated so this problem don't shore up again. If this advice helped you to a solution please rate it FIXA, I thank you for letting me solve your car issue today.

Loud Humming/Wheel Bearings?


When you turn and hear a noise it is usually a CV Joint that is going bad. Humming can be a lot of things. Tires wheel bearings, rear end differential etc.

sounds like a right front wheel bearing. when you turn to the left it puts more load on the right bearing. when you turn to the right it puts more load on the left bearing. These are a bolt in style bearing and they are fairly easy to replace.

If you think you would like to give it a try let me know and I'll get you some instructions.

I have a humming noise I the front end. I've jacked the car and there is no play in either of my wheels. The noise starts around 25 mph and gets deafing loud at 65mph, however it seems to go away around...


It sounds like you could have a problem with your wheel bearings.Wheel bearings do not have to feel loose to be noisy .A way to check would be to jack the front wheel off the ground.Support the front with jack stands under the lower control arms.Have someone drive the car with the wheels in the air and use a stethescope to listen for noise at the front bearings.
Note that feathering of the tires can also cause the noise.Feel for sharp edges on the inside or outside of your tires.

I noticed a louder engine sound at approx 45 mph, like a humming or aceleration sound, I had the driver's side wheel bearing replaced to the tune of approx $300 but the sound still remains (the repair guy...


Chevrolet has a common problem with integral hub and wheel bearings wearing due to exessive use or lack of lubrication, the balls or rollers and races become pitted ,scored or just plain damaged which will infact cause a loud humming or growling noise. I have had some humm at about the same speed but usually they will start to make noise at any speed. I would have to hear the noise to be sure cause there are many things to cause a humming noise like odd tire wear, bad idler pully bearings, e.t.c. the tires should be lifted checked for excessive play in the bearing. Take tire off depress brake piston in just enough secure brake rotor use stethoscope spin hub while listening. maybe he replaced wrong side seen that alot, seen tire noise mistaken for bad bearing to if struts or shocks are worn can cause tires to be choppy. I would recommend taken back 300 dollars is alot of money to not fix your problem.

Humming noise in the front end


Does the noise change pitch when you weave the wheel back and forth at 25. If yes you need bearings. I think they are pressed in on focus

There is a loud noise at 45mph.


Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps

Loud noise in back end


lift the car up and check the wheel bearings by turning the wheels manually. Listen for any clicking noises. Move the wheel back and forth pulling it toward you. There is not supposed to be any movement or noise on the wheel if the bearings are good. if you do see any movement or hear any noises , replace the wheel bearings
