1st thing to do here is have your tires balanced and rotated, have them checked for cupping, may need an alignment. If all is good, could be wheel bearing making the sound.

Rear end noise


Humming is usually caused by a wheel bearing. Try grabbing each tire and shaking it back and forth. If you hear any kind of clicking or movement, the bearing will need to be replaced.

Loud humming noise from right front end of 99 blazer


the noise is coming from the wheel section, it's called air splash, humming varies with speed, main causes are wheel alignment due to loose ball joint, check if your tire erodes on one side, next check your disc brake for clogged air cooled vain and disc wearing

I bought a 1992 civic it had 2 different size tires in the front. There is a loud humming noise from the tranny it is a stick. Is this what caused it and how do i fix it?


Running 2 tire sizes on the front could/would damage the transmissions differential, depends on how long it was driven like that. It would require a trip to a tranny shop to fix it. But usually a loud humming noise comes from front wheel bearings going bad. On that car, the wheel bearing is pressed into the Hub, so if it is a bad bearing, it is still a trip to a shop for repair. Sorry I dont have any good news for you.

Hi:
Often, that sort of humming is a wheel bearing. Since you have newer tires, and the noise gets louder when you steer, it could also be your CV joints, but the wheel bearing is the most likely suspect.

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.


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.

I noticed a louder engine sound at approx 45 mph, like a humming or aceleration sound, I had the driver's side wheel bearing replaced to the tune of approx $300 but the sound still remains (the repair guy...


Chevrolet has a common problem with integral hub and wheel bearings wearing due to exessive use or lack of lubrication, the balls or rollers and races become pitted ,scored or just plain damaged which will infact cause a loud humming or growling noise. I have had some humm at about the same speed but usually they will start to make noise at any speed. I would have to hear the noise to be sure cause there are many things to cause a humming noise like odd tire wear, bad idler pully bearings, e.t.c. the tires should be lifted checked for excessive play in the bearing. Take tire off depress brake piston in just enough secure brake rotor use stethoscope spin hub while listening. maybe he replaced wrong side seen that alot, seen tire noise mistaken for bad bearing to if struts or shocks are worn can cause tires to be choppy. I would recommend taken back 300 dollars is alot of money to not fix your problem.

Wheel Bearings??


hard to. Tires also can cause the same noise if they have diagonal tread wear. check them first. run hand around tread in one direction then the other. If rough in one direction, suspect tires for noise.

check for leaks in the fuel line from the gas tank up to the engine bay.the humming sound you hear at the back is your wheel bearing.it needs to be replaced.
