Testimonial: "Ok, I put it on jack stands, set the brake, started it, put it in drive (it's automatic) the noise is coming from the RF axle I will change it, have 1 question is there a bearing in the trans where the axle goes in? Thanks for the help Robert"

    There are differential bearings. I've never heard an axle "roar". With it in the air, listen for noise with stethescope. (long screwdriver works) See which end of axle noise comes from. If it is from the trans, diff bearings or output shaft bearing could be bad. Don't rule out the wheel bearing, new bearings can be bad. You said the noise gets louder on decel, that could definately be a diff. bearing. Wheel bearing noise changes when turning wheel. Make sure it is safe when under car, jack stands secure, jack still in place, wheels slid under car. Shake car, it should feel stable. Be safe.

    I'm guessing output shaft bearing and differential bearings are the same thing

    do you have to pull the trans to get this bearing out or can remove it when you remove the drive axle. I"ve work my cars since I got my first one in 65, just not good at diagnosing the newer ones

    These are internal transaxle bearings.

I'd check the exhaust by the back of the engine. The gasket that connects the catalytic converter to the tail pipes could have come loose. If you have a power lowering problem going uphill this will be the cause too. If it is an automatic transmission you will have a irregular shifting pattern as well. Good Luck, hope this helps.

You can feel which side it comes from. I can. Bearings or CV axles. Bearings will make a louder or softer sound left to right. CV axles will make a constant sound, no matter which way you turn. Replace the CV axle/s

Testimonial: "has new bearings on both front, cv joints appear to be good on the spindle end don't know about where it goes into trans Thanks for the help Robert"

  • Randy Ohler Nov 09, 2014

    To check CV joints. You have to pull them out from the vehicle. Move them around and check for flat/rough spots on both ends. Most likely the bear/wheel side. If you fell roughness then this will cause vibration/noise. Depending on how bad it is . On the spindle end of the axle, if you feel any roughness spinning at any angle by hand. The axle needs replaced. It will cause a vibration at all speeds, mostly felt at higher speeds. Inner part of the axle is harder to detect going down the road. But is easy by hand. Again the cv axle should be smooth at any angle by hand.

We have a 2004 Honda Civic that makes a roaring noise the faster the car goes - doesn't affect the performance of the car.


Where does the "roaring" sound like it is coming from? Can you feel any vibrations anywhere in the car? Under the seat? At your feet?

Defective fan clutch, if it has one. With a cold engine only, try spinning the fan blade by hand. If it does not turn freely, the fan clutch is defective. Warning: When the engine is hot, the fan can turn on by itself with the car not running and keys are NOT in the ignition.

There is no way to estimate cost until you know the exact case of the noise. See the dealer for a test drive so a tech can listen to it.

I have a roaring noise under the hood of my 06 chevy Z71


Have you looked at the Universal joint(s)? If it is 4-wd I'd inspect the front driveshafts as well - Other than that, I'd also inspect the brakes to ensure that the shoes were being held down properly and that the Universal joint is not worn - It sounds alot like either the U-joint or a brake problem - Have you inspected the rear end? Do you use the truck to pull anything? If you'll look at the U-joint and Brakes - If not, there are carrier bearings inside the rear end that may be the culprit as well, but I'd leave them for last as inspection is a bit involved -

Roaring noise when car idleing


Quite possibly the air conditioning compressor clutch bearing. I've seen a couple of these go bad now. Have the belt removed and see if the noise goes away.
