You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop
If the noise is only when the vehicle is moving it sounds lek you have a bad wheel bearing. You can inspect ford move ment or play shaking the tires up and down and left to right while lifted up on hoist or jack. If there is no movement doesn't necesarily mean the bearings are okay, however if there is movement in bearing replace and drive again. Antoher way to determine Which wheel bearing is bad is to drive and turn to the left, if the noise gets louder than it mens the rightside wheel bearung is bad. If you turn to the right and noise gets louder replace driver side front wheel bearing. Also Rub your hands across your tires, does it feel wavy or uneven, you could have cupped tires, I DON'T KNOW HOW NEW THEY are but cupped tires will also make this noise. One way to see if it is the tires is to do a rotate If noise changes at all then you no its a tire causing noise. Hope this helps.
Possible. If you have changed tires lately, make sure they put the right size tires on. If they went up in size by any measure, it could be rubbing on the tire well and thus making the noise. Check the users manual if you have it and check to make sure the tire sizes are correct. Also check your power steering fluid. That would make a humming or moaning noise but it would be noticeable while turning.
I'd certainly rotate tires to see if noise changes at all, as well as take a good look at tread on front tires, especially for excess or unusual wear on edges, especially outside of right front, if your quite sure the noise is coming from the right side. Does the noise increase, decrease, or stay same, on a left hand turn? Another thing would be to check all motor, and transmission mounts and see if it looks like things may have shifted slightly, or if they appear worn or broken, as well as If engine/transaxle has shifted slightly it can cause similar noises as well. As far as left front bearing goes, I wouldn't rule it out 100% either, unless you are positive noise is from right front area. You have to remember, either way you turn the wheel, will slightly shift either bearing if there is play in it. Rule out easy stuff first like tires.
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.
I had a similar problem, when turning to the right or on a right curve, the noise would go away. After some research I found it was the left wheel bearing assembly. I replaced it and the problem is gone. Therefore, check the wheel bearing assembly. You may have to replace it.
