    Yes it does seem to go away when I am turning to the left.

    As far as wheel bearlings... I haven't done those before.

    I will probably start with changing the front tires as can't afford all4 before the holidays.

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.

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?

Humming noise from driver rear wheel on 09 camry


Check wheel bearings. Properly jack up the car one side at a time with blocks set in front of and behind the front wheels with the car in Park. Do not set the parking brake as this will prevent the rear wheels from being spun while off the ground. Safety consideration--- Do not get any body parts between the wheel and finder or under the car in case it slips off the jack---- After one rear wheel is slightly off the ground begin to spin it and listen for rough / dry/ popping noises or break pad drag. See if the noise gets louder when you spin it faster or one direction versus the other. Check for loose bearing by trying to wiggle the tire side to side and top to bottom. Pay attention to tire wear. If you find nothing in the wheel itself, the tire might be the problem if the tread is worn oddly. You can change that tire's position with another wheel and see if the noise changes to the tire's new location. Repeat by checking the other side.

Loud hollow wind noise when accelerating


HI Cindy
The noise you hearing is the rear end bearings going bad
you should get them replaced as soon as possible

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

Making a loud humming noise accelerating over 30mph. Soon has you reach below 30 mph, the noise stops.... RWD.. Please help!!!! Where do I start??? It sounds like a lawnmower if that helps and I can feel...


It sounds like a bad tire, possibly a broken belt. Check the sidewalls and tread of all the tires for bulges. If good it probably is a bad wheel bearing. Try to isolate from where and what side. If the noise gets louder turning one direction but not the other, then more likely a bearing. If it stays constant both directions but gets louder with speed, then suspect a tire.

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.

My car makes a bad growling noise. Everyone said that it was a front wheel bearing because that tire was worn down really bad on the outside. I replaced the passenger front wheel bearing, and it is still...


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.
