1998 Nissan Altima GXE squealing noise

I own a 1998 Nissan Altima GXE. When I travel at speeds over 25 mph my car makes a squealing noise that is very loud. It seems to be coming from the driver's side. My mechanic said that it is not the wheel bearings so I have no clue.

Could be the bearings in your alternator have gone dry and your alternator is about to quit out on you. I had a friend with an 01 altima and we could always hear him coming before we saw him because of this very problem. Changed the alternator out and noise went away. Thanks for using FixYa!

99 Altima with 190k miles warbling noise


It sounds like your water pump is going it usually vibrates throughout everything if it was your alternator it would show signs with your power the easiest way would to take your belt off remembering the belt route and spin the alternator pulley and the water pump pulley to see if they spin freely without noise

Low growling noise in front end


typically, this sounds like a wheel bearing. To test, the noise can often be altered by accellerating /decelerating, and more evident by turning the vehicle.

The truning process is to put load on one side, then the other. if the right side has a damaged bearing, for example, the noise would be noticibly altered (less in this case) when turning to the right. Load would be slightly less. Testing speed in the area of 25 to 35 mph.

The RPM of Nissan Altima stays high when drive over 65 MPH.


No....the rpms differ from engine to engine and from manufacturer to manufacturer. RPM's are always higher at higher speeds.

My 2002 Altima has a squeeling noise coming from the left side of vehicle anytime i drive over 60 mph. Anyone know what this noise is?


My first reponse would be to remove ***********-in-law from the rear seat. LOL

Try applying the brakes lightly, does the squealing stop? If so it could simply be worn brake pads on that side however, this will usually happen a slow speeds as well. Another possibility could be your CV joint. Crawl under the vehicle on that side and check for a torn CV boot (rubber boot around the axel shaft where it comes out of the transmission/ or rear end and attaches to the spindle (wheel).
