2004 Chevrolet Malibu front end hum

For a while now my car has a humming noise coming from what i think is the front end driver's side. It correlates directly with speed. There is also a slight vibration felt in the gas peddle and floor at speeds around 35 and again at 50. There is no play in either front tire and no temperature difference that i can notice in any wheel. The tires are new so I'm almost sure its bearings going bad but i can't tell which side, front or back. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Just had this same problem with the vibration and humming noise. Changed out both wheel bearings- still doing it. Definitely NOT the bearings. Maybe a drive shaft problem?

I think your right that its a bad bearing or hub. If your feeling it in the gas pedal and the floor, its most likely the front. If you can find an empty parking lot, try to get up to the speed it starts making the noise, and turn left and right. With the extra load being put on each bearing from turning, that will tell you which side it is.

They now have a bearing assembly, you replace the unit as one. The humming sounds like a Blazer I did last week. Same noise/humming over 25MPH..? Sounds just like road/tire noise. Hope this helps.

Loud humming noise from drivers side front end changed hub assembly still have noise ????????????????


humming noise usually comes from wheel bearings. did you change that with a new bearing? also choppy or worn tires can cause humming noise that sounds like bad wheel bearings. rotate your tires and see if the noise changes. if so its tires. also even if it sounds like its from the right it could very well be a bad bearing in another location.
