SOURCE: Terrible Front End noise

I would agree with the hub bearing solution. I also have a 2001 Cavalier and recently replaced both hub bearings. The sound is quite loud and does get worse the faster you drive. Once I got mine replaced, I couldn't believe how quiet my car ran. My dad works with a guy who does a lot of work on Cavalier's and has noticed that first the left hub bearing goes bad, soon followed by the right after about 60,000 miles.

I had the same problem, my mechanic has had this same problem with other 2003 grand caravans. Flush the power steering fluid, replace it with ATF+4 and add Lucas power steering additive. Apparently dodge has posted the fluid that was originally used is causing this problem. $100 and it is purring like a kitten

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

SOURCE: 2006 saturn ion front end noise...wheel bearings?

Yes you can do this; the bearings are sealed unit hubs; very easy the cost is only about $70 each at an auto parts store. once you look at them you'll know how to do this.

SOURCE: My front end makes a loud humming noise.

Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

My ford festiva makes a loud whining road noise. Recently the gearbox was changed, and 3 months before that the lhs front wheel bearing was replaced. Any ideas what the problem is?


that has all the hallmarks of a faulty or worn wheel bearing. Run the car on the road, come home and jack up all 4 wheels. Spin them and see if they feel rough, hold the top and bottom of the tyre and see if you get movement in and out.

The trick with replacing wheel bearings, is to tighten down whilst spinning the wheel until it locks up, and then release, if i remember correctly a quarter turn. Locking it up makes sure the bearing is fully seated. If not, they become very loose in a short time and the rollers in the bearing start to shatter. Ruined two before I was told that trick by the parts store.

Driving noise, not from bearings


it could be center bearing, if its going bad it can also cause a vibration, make sure you have sufficient fluid in the diff as well, you can also get a noise and vibration from collapsed motor or trans mounts

What could cause a thumping noise from the front end when turning at low speed?


sounds like wheel bearings-1st
but hopefully your front disc need turning, or replaced.
check wheel bearings by jacking up the front end "CAREFULLY" WITH
JACK STANDS & wiggle tires,if you get more than a 1/4'' slack on 1 or the other, than it's shot. Best to replace both sides. "GOOD LUCK'' &
BE CAREFULL.

1999 ford explorer limited whining noise in front end


Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

Loud hum Left front wheel area


If it sort of whines then a wheel bearing is shot

Question :
If you go around a corner the noise should get less? as there is more lateral strain on the bearings



A very loud rumble would be a drive shaft problem

Front end noise


Hi Wild Bear

No 1....... Check your wheel nuts ! !!!!!!

If OK.....

Is the problem worse on full lock, one way ?

If so, it sounds like the drive shaft CV joint is shot.


If no....

Jack up the front, support car on axle stands.

Spin your front wheels, check the treads, and I should think, you will be able to tell the problem wheel.

Expect it might be in the brake caliper area, something loose and fouling the wheel or rim ?

Check for play too, in your front wheel bearings, by gripping the tyre, top and bottom and pulling, there should be no movement.

Give these things a try, and get back to me.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be nice thank´s
