If its just one tire making noise check brakes and backing plates and axel bearing on that side also e-brake could be hung up think some of those blazers have aluminum calipers if disc brakes and love to seize up

It is inside the transmission. It is called a reaction sun shell, it strips out, which causes the grind noise your talking about.

Remove the rear rotors to check the emergency brake pads. The rivets can rust and the pads will slide around. They will click at slow speeds. Drove me crazy for weeks.

SOURCE: Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel

I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
Good Luck

SOURCE: hissing sound like air from a tire coming from

Sounds like you have something rubbing, since you are not loosing air and there is nothing else to hiss,, an exhaust leak would have a different sound. I have seen debris get wedged in the brakes and make a noise when you are underway. The sound would vary, depending on what sort of debris it is. I would remove the wheel and look for the culprit. Your brakes may need to be religned as well. Sometimes the audible brake wear sensor will make a noise like that. Good Luck! I hope this is very helpful!

The tires must be inflated to what is stated on the driver's door jamb sticker. If your tires are larger than what came factory and require a different pressure than what the door jamb states, the RCDLR must be reprogrammed for such.

Noise from rear of 2001 Hyundai accent.


Take it to a different tire store, and ask them to look for a separated belt or an out-of-round tire. The store that balance your tires should have caught that. A bent wheel is another possibility

Or: On a lift, slowly rotate the tire, standing 6-8 feet behind the car and watch the edges of the tread -- see if they "wobble" from side to side. That's a bad tire.

Or: Rotate tires front to back and see if the problem shows up in the steering wheel.

When i put my 2001 blazer in 4 hi and back to 2 wheel drive i smelled something burning.


Sounds like the solenoid actuator is getting ready to burn out, do your self a favor when disengaging the 4WD come to a complete stop and put the truck inreverse when disengaing this releases pressure on the transfer case also be sure that the tires are all the same size if they are not this can bind up the transfer case causing the solenoid actuator to work too hard. Even if the front tires have a lot of tread and the back tires sre worn bad this change in size if driving on bare pavement can cause binding, engage and disengage on dirt or snow to avoid this problem.

If it sounds like a rumble from back wheels it may be the rear end going out. Mine has been replaced twice with used rear end. You should be able to confirm it by looking at the rear tires both sides of tire for an oil leak or wet spot on tire or rim.
