Well, First answer to why your Malibu is humming...it doesn't know the words to the song.
Some tires will make road noise, look on line at tire store reviews on your brand see if complaints...may be covered on warranty take to shop you bought tires from. They should road test for free.
Not sure how old car is..if not on warranty... remove one wheel and replace with spare, give it a drive. Are they oversized and scraping tires on car someplace? Do all 4. You could use a friends wheel/tire off their car and use it on each corner of yours as well. If nothing changes take into shop, could be wheel bearing.

What causes the tires to create humming


1st thing to do here is have your tires balanced and rotated, have them checked for cupping, may need an alignment. If all is good, could be wheel bearing making the sound.

2001 chevy suburban. I hear a humming noise from the engine. Engine ticks while idle for after a few minutes. Ticking goes away when I accelerate. There is a strong vibration when I accelerate in drive but...


Ticking sounds like a dry lifter, when was the last time you changed the oil and filter? Humming sounds like you need a tire rotation because of uneven tire wear.

Humming sound while driving


if the noise changes if you swerve on the road it would lead towards a wheel bearing if it stays the same rotate the tires and see if the noise changes to the rear

Loud humming noise from drivers side front end changed hub assembly still have noise ????????????????


humming noise usually comes from wheel bearings. did you change that with a new bearing? also choppy or worn tires can cause humming noise that sounds like bad wheel bearings. rotate your tires and see if the noise changes. if so its tires. also even if it sounds like its from the right it could very well be a bad bearing in another location.

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.


Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

Humming noise from tyres


Make sure the tire pressure is proper..
Be sure to rotate them every 6-k miles or so..
If they are not rotated - the tread could get the fish-scale effect..
Run you open hand gently across the tread in the direction of up and down - not side to side..
If you feel the fish-scale effect - it is from not rotating them and that is what is causing the humming noise..
Rotate them asap.. if it has been TOO long - the "humming" might not go away until your next set of tires..

Good luck ;o)

1997 chevy malibu stopped while driving on highway, no sounds, no warnings, just quit. Anyone has a similar problem. Car will not start anymore, attemps to, but just sputters.


I had the same problem with my 2002 Cheavy Malibu. First check the fuses under the drivers side under the hood. Look in your manuel to find the location for the fuel fuse location. If that doesnt work then look at your fuel filter.

Humming noise in the the front of my truck.


Did you try rotating the tires maybe front to back to see if noise disappears or moves with the tire? Otherwise maybe a wheel bearing.
