Rear noise at high speeds

On a 2013 Equinox, when driving on the freeways around 70 mph there is an occasional flapping noise. I don't see any loose hoses or mud guards that would cause this noise. What could it be?

Is it more like a "thump thump thump" sound? If so, it's likely your wheel bearings.

SOURCE: Noise when driving at speed Jaguar X type (53 plate)

This problem that your having is all too common on Jaguars. I have a 2002 X-type and I have been completely screwed over with it. I've had all of your problems and then some. The noise your hearing is a prop shaft most likely in the front of the vehicle. Jag says that it doesn't need to be replaced but you always can. They quoted me somewhere close to 1,300. Good Luck.

SOURCE: why my 2005 chevy equinox

Here is the problem: It is the speed sensor for your wheel. Apparently mine was all jacked up and possibly could have happened during driving. The wires on mine apparently are all screwed up from whatever trauma it suffered. I'm on my way to go it now...........$240 OUCH!

SOURCE: Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds

I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))

SOURCE: oscillating vibration around 60-70 mph in 6th gear

sounds like a cv joint to me. That is what usually occurs when one is showing wear. C.V joints usually wear out between 80,000 and 120,000 k.m.

Check the universals from the transfer case to the front axle.

My 2006 prius has brake light on vsc light and abs light on at 70 mph on freeway


I'd be shocked if you weren't 'right-on' about a cause for the 34psi tire to be leaking air and thus the cause of the error lights at high speed. Is it the VSC detecting oddities at 70+mph?

When we get up around 70 mph on the freeway there is a high pitched whistling noise. Are there any common problems with trailblazers that might be causing this?


Ive seen this on trucks with foldaway mirrors. The wind whistles through where the mirror mounts to the base. Try putting a piece of tape over it and driving to see if it stops.

Speedo is not accurate and the faster you go the more inaccurate it gets. It seemed to start doing this when it got cold. The needle moves back and forth at freeway speeds. There is no noise though....


Based on the age of the vehicle I would check the speed gear on the transmission for being worn or loose. If the Speedometer actually has a cable attached to it replace the cable totally. This symptom is more a sign of a worn cable than a twisted cable.

My car makes a loud clunking noise at around 65mph.


Not sure if this is this answer, but I had a problem with a noise under the front end once....turned out to be the cowling under the front bumper....it was broken and it took a high speed to force it down enough to hit the road.

Good luck!!
