SOURCE: wierd noise

Sounds like a wheel bearing going, or gone. Possible tire/alignment, but more than likely, wheel bearing. You going to fix, or have it fixed?

SOURCE: i hear a squeak noise on the driver side front

the easy whay to fine this out is to put the spare tiyer on and drive it
if it still squeaks it could be the disk pad binding up a little on the disk
wip them both out on both sides and apply some copper ease to the back of the pads making sure they can slide easly in there holders
the next time your driving and you here this squeaking noise jut apply a very little presher on the foot brake to push the pads onto the disks if it stops the squeak its pads

SOURCE: I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am. I have constant

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.

SOURCE: Sand gring noise progressing

My 03 Aztek is making the same noise - mechanic said needed new rear axel - $12- 1300. Would be cheaper & simpler to just disconnect the rear wheel drive & make it a front wheel drive. He still wants $500 for that but he's talking take apart & put two new connections at wheels. So isn't there an easier way to just disconnect communication to rear? Any ideas?

Noise from frt pass tire


Yes it could be a number of things a bad tire is not safe.
Put your spare on the car, see if the noise goes away, if so replace tire, check brakes and all parts in that area.

I have a 2005 gmc sierra 1500 what would cause a roaring sound coming from my truck?


Hi. the noise is likely because you now have tires with a more aggressive tread. The bumpier the tire, the more noise you will hear. Had the same issue with my Sierra.

I just bought an2003 ford explorer 4x4 and i have a loud humming noise coming from the front end tires are brand new it has around 190,000km please help


If the noise is only when the vehicle is moving it sounds lek you have a bad wheel bearing. You can inspect ford move ment or play shaking the tires up and down and left to right while lifted up on hoist or jack. If there is no movement doesn't necesarily mean the bearings are okay, however if there is movement in bearing replace and drive again. Antoher way to determine Which wheel bearing is bad is to drive and turn to the left, if the noise gets louder than it mens the rightside wheel bearung is bad. If you turn to the right and noise gets louder replace driver side front wheel bearing. Also Rub your hands across your tires, does it feel wavy or uneven, you could have cupped tires, I DON'T KNOW HOW NEW THEY are but cupped tires will also make this noise. One way to see if it is the tires is to do a rotate If noise changes at all then you no its a tire causing noise. Hope this helps.

its a wheel bearing. .will need to be inspected to determine the correct one. Also tires could also do this if the steel seperated internally. Rotate the suspected tire to see if it follows the tire.

WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

My fist guess would be faulty wheel bearings. Take it in and Mechanic should be able to diagnose.
