Question about 2003 Buick Century

1 Answer

Noises from the front wheels.

My 2003 Buick Century makes a roaring sound from the front tires. I can't really place if it's coming from the driver's side or the passenger, but I notice that the sound kind of fades away when i'm in a long curve to the right.Sometimes there's also a ticking sound like if there was a rock stuck between between the treads of my tire, but there is none. Is there anyone that knows what the problem is and about how much it may cost to repair?

Sounds like maybe a wheel bearing on it's way out, but should be easy for mechanic to pinpoint, and give estimate. Depending on what system, bearing required, part runs from $90-$180, and would estimate an hour, to hour and a half, to change it. If you try ( www.repairpal.com ) it will ask your zip code & info & give you a price range for your particular area.

Any ideas why a 2003 chevy trailblazer may vibrate in the front but stops when you turn left


Does the vehicle make any noises while driving? If there is a "growling or roaring " noise associated with the vibration, check the right front hub bearing. If there are no noises and only vibration, check the right front upper ball joint and control arm bushings. The Trailblazer's upper ball joint and control arm bushings become worn and cause the tire and wheel assembly to shimmy while driving. The vibration stops when turning left because of weight transfer to the right side which keeps the wheel steady for a moment. Also, check the tire for irregular wear.

What is this roaring sound in the front right axle


If the roaring sound get louder at highway speeds try veering side to side in your lane safely of course to see if the roar noise changes,this would indicate a hub & wheel bearing assembly issue and would need to be replaced.

Gas guage does not work


This issue is probably caused by a faulty fuel sending unit or a bad connection by the gas tank. If possible try wiggling the fuel pump harness by the tank and see if gauge may start working.The particular harness I am referencing will contain a purple wire which is power wire to the fuel pump.This plug and harness also contains the wires that connect to the fuel gauge.This harness is located by the right rear tire by the gas tank.

Roaring noise


This is your radiator fan... it willl pull air through when it is needed to keep your engine and coolant cool... if your engine needs to cool quickly it will blow harder making the "roaring" sound louder

2004 grand prix roaring noise


It really sounds like a wheel bearing to me, If you drive down a straight smooth road and gently rock the steering wheel back and forth, you can sometimes tell which side it is by the way the car loads the front wheels. I believe this bearing can be purchased as hub and bearing assembly so it is fairly easy to replace but the part is pricey. Remove the wheel, brake caliper and rotor, look through the hub flange access holes and undo the mounting bolts and pull the bearing assembly out of the knuckle.

On crysler 2000 lhs i have a roaring soun coming from the right tire that sounds like its getting louder


Hi my name is Allen!

With roaring noises coming from the wheel area, we must be very careful in diagnosis because it could be the "Wheel Bearing" which is the most likely cause, but it also can be a tire itself.

Here is how to see which one it is, take the rear tire and put it on the front and put the front tire on the rear.

Next drive the vehicle, if the noise went to the rear of the vehicle and is no longer in the front, then you know its the tire. If the noise is still in the front then you know its the wheel bearing or the CV Joint, but if you do not hear a clicking noise when turning sharply both ways while moving then you most likely can rule out the CV Joints also. Then you know for sure without a doubt it is the wheel bearing.
