    Does sound change at all on a bend/turn? Checked tire inflation? Does it sound like it coming from front, or back, or under vehicle? No sign of noise before that speed?

2005 ford focus makes a roaring noise while in park when you press on the gas. Sounds like it's come from the back of motor where exhaust connects to motor. ????


My friend's 2004 Focus was doing the same thing - especially loud when accelerating from a stop. When it reached stable speed, it got much quieter. We thought it was exhaust also, but couldn't find any cracks, gaps, or obvious leaks. We brought it to a garage, and they found a bad motor mount. When the engine was under load, it would torque (against either the frame or firewall) and make the loud, irritating noise. A new engine mount, and it sounds almost new again.

My 2003 Mazda Protege has 111,700 miles and makes a roaring noise with some vibration at around 20 mph but goes away when I accelerate to higher speeds. I have 17 inch custom rims with low profile tires on...


Bring in the car to a PROFESSIONAL shop. Mention your problem & ask about a wheel balance, alignment & make your problem clear before any work is done. Mention bearings etc. Ive dealt w millions of csrs at my own private shop & that would be your best approach. NO JIFFY LUBE TYPE SHOP

2002 Santa Fe loud roaring sound


Usually a roar at speed is a wheel bearing and your hearing the rough roller balls of the bearing making the noise as they rotate while driving. The cost to replace it vaires by the amount of time it takes to remove the old bearing. There is a flat rate but many shops say the flat rate is ______ but that is subject to total job time on a wheel bearing. Usually it costs anywhere from $100- $170 parts and labor.
Bad wheel bearings if they lock up can also many other components if they spin in the housing / bearing race. Do not let it go on for an extended period as it can drastically increase total repair costs.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Loud "tire or wheel" roar on the highway


I certainly would take it back to the shop that performed the brake job and have them investigate. If it was not making the noise prior to the repair there is a good chance the noise is involved with the brakes. A possible loose brake pad, a sticking caliper(caliper pins may need to be lubed) or any number of things could be wrong.

Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.


One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.
