Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Roaring while driving

While I'm driving down the road, my car makes a really loud roaring noise, what do you think the problem is, could it be the struts or an alignment, the tires are new. I've also checked the bearings and they seem to be tight, the tire doesn't move when examined.

    I was hit on the front driver side and the plastic is bent in there, but I think the roaring was before that accident. I believe the breaks are normally hot.

    Not it doesn't roar while I'm sitting in park giving the car gas

    is there any sign of rubbing plastic that is free to be blown into your tire while driving? is it pulling to one side or the other, also are your brakes hot after this noise, hotter than usual

Have you checked the fan clutch assembly?

    If you were hit that changes things, But a roaring would be caused by the fan or belts hitting on something, that's if it's coming from the engine compartment. If the roaring is coming from the bearing on the side you were hit on then it would most likely be a bearing or a piece of plastic that is running against the tires. does it roar when you are not moving and give the engine gas?

Roaring in the front end of my 2004 Chevy Trailblazer 4x4


A jet engine type of noise from the engine area usually means the fan clutch is going bad. I don't think the tach is related to this, that could be the stepper motor for the tach going bad.

2004 grand prix roaring noise


It really sounds like a wheel bearing to me, If you drive down a straight smooth road and gently rock the steering wheel back and forth, you can sometimes tell which side it is by the way the car loads the front wheels. I believe this bearing can be purchased as hub and bearing assembly so it is fairly easy to replace but the part is pricey. Remove the wheel, brake caliper and rotor, look through the hub flange access holes and undo the mounting bolts and pull the bearing assembly out of the knuckle.

Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.


One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.
