Question about 2001 Kia Sportage

1 Answer

Deceleration noise My 2001 Kia, with less than 67,000 miles, developed a loud noise upon deceleration (sounds like a prop airplane coming in for a landing). It started after getting two new tires put on the back, new brake pads on front and caliper replaced. Later, hanger bearing, driveshaft and eventually differential were all replaced. Nothing has helped. This has been going on for several weeks and the noise is growing louder.

I would have to say that your front wheel bearings are no good and need replacing that is the usual sound they make and the pitch changes threw out the driving speeds and corners I would say.

SOURCE: how to check front bearings on 2000 kia sportage

hi there, there are two ways to check your bearings, 1, is to jack up the vehicle so the wheel is free of the ground and to check for any play or roughness in the bearing by spinning the wheel, if the bearing is worn then you will hear a droning noise, 2 is to drive along a quiet road, at a speed where you can hear the noise, gently turn the steering from left to right so the vehile load is being shifted from one side to the other, if you have a wheel bearing fault the noise's pitch will alter,hope this helps

SOURCE: Hello, I have a 2006

Hello, yes your doing the right thing. The bolts go through the caliper bushings and you have to pull the bolts out while unscrewing. If this doesn't work let me know. Good luck.

SOURCE: 2001 kia sportage soft brake pedel still doing

hi from the uk have had this problem on a customers car b4 who had replaced frot calipers and pads and pedal went to floor on inspection of caliper i found that the steel spring clip that fits into two holes in the front face of caliper and must also locate behind the caliper carrierbehind two lugs was fitted incorrectly it had been fitted behind the outer pad resulting in when brake pedal off ?the caliper being floating type as it is known because it is fixed by two screw pins/bolts and moves on these pins/bolts as pads wear ? what happens is the spring fitted wrongly ? actually pushes against the outer pad and as a result the caliper piston is pushed back into its cylinder slightly as it moves on the locating pins/bolts resulting in pedal going to floor on 1st application but if pumped ? some brake pedal force is felt but is lost again when pedal released ? so try this ? remove the steel clips from both front calipers that retain caliper to carriers then press brake/pump pedal ? if as suggested above works? your pedal should pump up and remain ok when you release and still be firm when re applied ? all above is what i found on ford ford but many other models use similar calipers and spring locating recheck how this spring should locate hope this helps ? good luck

I own a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. At highway speeds I hear a loud winding noise coming from what sounds like the right front of the car. And also a whistling noise on deceleration.


sounds like you have an hole where air is blowing past. check for any missing screws or holes. if a mounting brace for any hoses or pipes that run under the vehicle have come loose they could whistle as well. if the noise during deceleration only happens when you brake then it's time for new brake pads.
hope this helps

G'day mate , sounds like exhaust hiting , posible causes are from the front to back , boken / deteriorated engine mounts allowing engine to move about , exhaust shields ( thin plate moulded to exhaust shape and bolted on ) rattling about , finally exhaust mounts themselves are they in good order if not the exhaust will hit and bang . hope this helps

In 2 wheel drive there is a whirring sound from the front end followed by a loud clunk where it feels as though you have run over a large rock or chunk of ice. Does not seem to occur in 4wd


if the whirring you describe sounds like an airplane and increases with speed that would be a wheelbearing and it may be loose to cause the clunk noise. when it is put in 4 wheel drive that can load the bearing up and noise goes away.

There is a loud noise at 45mph.


Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps

2001 Kia Optima - Train sounding noise underneath


Sounds like the bearings are going out in the rear hub(s). Drive the car for a few miles (if it is safe to to do). Park it and check to see if the wheels are warm, or even hot, in their center cap area. This will indicate excess friction from bad bearings. Replace the whole hub. It's an easy DIY job, if you are so inclined. Part cost should be just over $100. per axle. Shop around to find a good price. I recommend Timken hubs. best of luck.
