Could be a wheel bearing. Jack the car up and shake the tire. Look for a loose front end part.

My 1990 4Runner shook majorly when hitting speeds of 70MPH and up. The front shocks needed replacing and the tires had worn unevenly and needed to be rotated and balanced.

SOURCE: 1991 toyota camry front drivers side makes noise while driving

It's the left front wheel bearing. Take it to your favorite mechanic if you have one, any good tech can do it, but he/she could run into complications with a car of that age. (The hip bone's connected to the thigh bone, the thigh bone's connected to the knee bone, etc, and there's probably a good share of corrosion down there).

SOURCE: Truck makes humming sound, volume increases with speed and turn

Wheel bearings is my guess. Confirm this by jacking the vehicle up with wheels on and check for play. Grab the tire by the top and bottom and wiggle it in and out, the will be excessive play. Given the fact that you gave a clear explination i am almost certain its bearings. You will need to purchace new bearings(Inner and Outer), Hub Seals, and possibly a possibly an axle seal kit for the 4x4 drive axle (they get old and stick to the axle durring disassembly) and keep in mind that to get the outter races of both bearings in the hub need to be "Pressed" out a a machine shop, or by any shop that might have a press.

SOURCE: steering is loose and makes noise

There are many different parts that can go bad to cause tire wear. I would take the car into a local shop to get the alignment checked. When a mechanic checks the alignment he MUST check for worn or loose parts on the front end. If there are any, he cannot adjust the alignment until they are replaced. Most likely inner or outer tie rod ends have play. Could be struts/sway bar links/ or hub bearings as well.

Rear end feels really loose when turning from stop


Check the tire inflation. Also, if you can jack the tire up off the ground, rotate the tire and feel across the top of the tread. If there seems to be any high/low spots or feeling of side-to-side tread movement, you may have a separated belt in the tire. This can cause the "loose" feeling you are getting.

Why is my front driver side tire wobble when i hit a bump


First, have the tire inspected before you do any expressway driving. you could have a damaged tire with a tread or internal ply separation. second, inspect the front shock absorbers, it sounds like the left front shock has failed and lost its hydraulic fluid. third have the front steering linkage and front suspension checked for worn or loose tie rods, idler arm, ball joints and stabilizer bar links. do this ASAP as you don't want to have the tire fail or any parts break while you are driving!

Why does my 1998 plymouth breeze sound like my right tire is going to fall off when i turn the wheel to the right? and its only the front drivers side!


You could have a bad wheel bearing/hub assembly, loose tie rod (inner or outer), or a loose ball joint. If you raise the vehicle (with lift or jack), shake the wheel left and right and if it seems to have any loose motion not controlled by the steering wheel, it will be one of those i just listed. Shaking top to bottom is usually an indicator of a bad wheel bearing while side to side will be one of the others.

Loud popping noise when turning.Seems to be coming from the drivers side front wheel


this could be a bad inner axle joint check to see if the axle boot on the left side is torn or missing also check the wheel bearings and tie rod ends by jacking up the front of the vehicle one corner at a time and grab the tire at the 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock position and wiggle it back and forth looking for excessive movement in the tie rod ends then reverse your hands to the top and bottom of the tire and try moving it from top to bottom checking for excessive wheel bearing movement it shouldn't move in or out at the top or bottom

SYMPTOMS OF BALL JOINT WEAR


If you make a hard right or left hand turn (with steering wheel turned until it stops) you'll hear and feel a pop sensation.When you drive over potholes you'll feel a slight pull to one side.If it is one of the upper balljoints,you can grab the tire with both hands near the top(11 and 1 o'clock) and pull the wheel back and forth.You will feel looseness if the upper balljoint is bad.

When driving down the road the truck pulls to the left or to the right


you have a worn out or loose steering component. easiest way to find it is to jack up the front of the truck so both tires are off the ground. grab the tire and "turn" it left to right, to simulate the actual steering. you will probably feel some kind of movement. like a loose feeling...its difficult to put into writing. but if you watch the steering parts while a buddy trys to shake the tire around a bit, then you should be able to spot what is loose or worn. keep an eye on the tierod ends, and the ball joints especially. but it could even be a bushing on the control arm. once you find whats loose, you either tighten it up, or replace the parts as needed. you may have to try shaking both tires (not at the same time), depending on what side of your truck the bad part is on. also check to see if the tire moves when you try to move it front to back. that would indicate bad wheel bearings.

Vibration and noise from front end while driving


Jack up the front end and put stands under it and block rear wheels. Look at axle boots and see if they are cracked. Try turning wheel back and forth sharply and see if you can hear any clicking. Problem could be outer axle joints. If the boots are cracked or you hear a clicking noise you will have to replace the axle. The axle and boot come as a complete unit. Please let me know what you find out.

Car steering


There could be numerous problems going wrong. Your car is rear wheel drive so it could very well be a bad wheel bearing. If it is extremely loose it can cause a shake in your steering wheel. You may want to check on the condition of your tires and rims especially the left front. A bad tire can cause a shake and pull. If you know how to use your car jack you can try jacking the vehicle up, and put both hands on your front wheel and move it manually to see if there is looseness. Most shops only charge about 1/2 hour to shake down the front end. BMW parts are expensive so be prepared!
