Question about 2001 Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

2001 Hyundai Tiburon making a type of whirring noise in front end

Almost sounds as if something is rubbing against the wheel. If I put the car in neutral while moving the sound is still there and slows down as the car slows down. When going straight or turning left the sound is prominent, however when I make right hand turns on curves the sound subsides. Then when I straighten up again the whirring sound comes back. I am thinking wheel bearing or possibly CV joint. Any suggestions or possible solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Roaring sound while in motion.Even if the shifters is in neutral the sound does not cease.Is is because of worn out wheel bearing?

Where the sound coming from? Front or back? It could be a number of things. It could be bearings, it could be a cracked brake pad rubbing against the disk, under inflated/worn out tires

I hear a rubbing sound when i go down the road.when i slow up it stops,when i speed up it gets is coming from the front wheels i think.i just had the brakes done about a month ago???? help

Have the front wheel bearings checked they are a sealed unit that has to be pressed in or assembly removed and replaced. Or your brakes are dragging and rubbing against the rotor it could be the caliper is sticking or the rotor doesn't have enough wave, warp cut in it to push the pads back enough. Most people think a rotor is cut perfectly flat if this was true the pads would rub against the rotor all the time. The car could be jacked up and on stands and have someone listen for the noise right next to the wheel while you speed up the wheels and slow down with the brakes and don't try for 100mph you could hurt the tires
