Check the fluid, if it's low put some in it, if it still does it, the power steering pump might be on it's way out.

While driving my 97 ford expedition, it makes a low rumbling sound, similar to the sound of driving on a shoulder. When I let off the gas or give it more gas, it usually stops for a few seconds, then it...


sounds like you have a wheel bearing that's bad, some vehicles have the wheel sensor mounted right to the wheel bearing.
best way to check is drive down a straight road at a steady speed, then turn the wheel left, like your going to change lanes, then do the same but this time turn the wheel to the right.
Now if the noise is louder when you turn left, then that tells you the right wheel bearing is bad, if you turn right and the noise is greater, then your left wheel bearing is bad.
the reason for this, is when you shift the vehicle left or right, the weight of the body shifts the opposite way that you are turning, thus putting more weight on the bearing, causing it to get louder.
Hope this helps.

How do I check for worn wheel bearings


lift vechiel and support by jack stand. grab top and bottom of tire and wiggle it in and out, alternatly. or up and down, depending on how you look at it. but easiest way is to drive it. when noise happens, turn left and right, if noise gets louder or quieter as you turn then its guareenteed to be a wheel bearing. turn left and get louder, replace right side. if turn right and gets louder replace left side. if noise does not change due to turning. then not wheel bearing making noise.

Low pitched humming


When it makes the noise and you able to do this try turning to the right and to the left. If the noise changes or goes away than your on the right track with a bad wheel bearing.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

Car was making a whirring noise and got louder and then noise stopped, warning light said check charge system. When car was put in reverse the steering wheel would not turn.


Hi there.
I think the power steering pump gave up. The fan belt possibly stopped because of the pump and then the system shows no charge to the battery
"check charge system" makes then sense to me.

The car makes a howling noise while driving it


well did the noise start after the tires were rotated?could be choppy tires,,,if not ,i strongly think it sounds like a bad wheel bearing,,,,if you drive and while its making the noise turn left and right quick and see if the noise gets louder and which way turning makes it louder,,if you turn leftand it gets louder its usually the right wheels bearing as you are putting load on it, if it makes the noise louder while turning right its the left wheel bearing,,,got it

Is this rumbling wheel bearings or transmission?


If the sound is all the time, no matter what you are doing then it is the Transmission going bad. CV Joints, Wheel bearing will only make the noise when in rotation.. Also remember that this is a front wheel drive car, so it will throw you off thinking it is the wheel bearings or CV joints due to the front wheel drive
