If cv joint is bad car has a lot of vibration, boots arent torn or leaking, but makes a humming noise. is this cv joint or something else?

cv joints should not click as that is the first indication of a failed unit
( going slow and changing direction produces a click,click is a cv joint)
wheel bearings should not be tight as that will produce a humming noise and will result in early failure
because the axle turns with the change of direction ,the distance from the pivot point to the transmission changes and so the shaft will move in and out of the transmission to compensate
take it to an accredited drive line specialist for a diagnosis

Humming sound when you drive

check the u- joints for looseness. The humming noise may be harmonic vibration from u- joints, un balanced drive shaft, or incorrect operating diff angles.. Check what tires you are running as certain tread patterns will produce a hum on certain hard surfaces.

Bmw 335I Problems Humming in car. Goes away when

First thing I'd check is the power steering fluid level. If it's low, add until it's at the proper full level as indicated on the cap/dipstick for the pump's reservoir. A low level can cause a humming or slight grinding sound. If it's full, you could have a rack-and-pinion problem, a wheel bearing problem, or even a tire problem. Good luck.

Bad tires or bad shocks. 2004 Ford expedition has a loud humming noise, gets louder the faster you go. we bought this car used, the tires are uneven, but I somebody told me the humming could be that the...

There are several points this could originate. Bad tires will normally cause a distinct vibration of the steering that can change in intensity dependent on speed.
Bad shocks are less likely to cause a hum of any kind and if 'blown' will produce hard knocks when hitting larger bumps. You can crudely check shocks by 'bouncing' each corner and watching how it recovers; if you let go at the low point, the shock should rise slightly above level and return one time only, not dampen out with decreasing movement.
I would be checking the engine/transmission motor mounts for signs of torn or cracked rubber or cracked metal. There are normally three mounts; two on the engine and a third on the transmission housing. If one of these has failed, it can transmit engine noise to the body of the vehicle producing a hum.

2004 Chrysler Crossfire 25,000 mls auto, road hum noise

MOST of the hums after a while come from the diff as the back axle does the driving and almost all its life runs the same way except when going in reverse ,is the rear diff meshing and worn on both the crownwheel and the pinion and the humming gets slightly louder the faster you go and almost goes when almost stopped and this can also be the slight vibration you get so get the diff oil drained and refilled and check if there is any metal in the oil when drained if so thats your problem But it will last for years like that..Let me know how you get on RON

Noise and vibration above 50 mph

Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.
