I have a 2006 kia sorento ex what does car sound like when u joints are bad


Popping or grinding sound on sharp turns. Verify by checking for play in the cv joints.

If cv joint is bad car has a lot of vibration, boots arent torn or leaking, but makes a humming noise. is this cv joint or something else?


cv joints should not click as that is the first indication of a failed unit
( going slow and changing direction produces a click,click is a cv joint)
wheel bearings should not be tight as that will produce a humming noise and will result in early failure
because the axle turns with the change of direction ,the distance from the pivot point to the transmission changes and so the shaft will move in and out of the transmission to compensate
take it to an accredited drive line specialist for a diagnosis

OK, let me be more specific on the front noise on my 2006 Honda Accord, EX, 4cyl. I have 80000 miles and about 3000 miles ago, I started to hear a noise , which I believed was coming from the driver side...


While driving and with radio off, listen to the noise. Find a road that is clear on which you can drive without any traffic. Drive at a constant speed and make light shifts to the left and right, by doing this, the weight of the vehicle will shift to the apposite side of the steering wheel to which you turn.
When you turn to the left, the weight goes to the right (passenger side) wheel, if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
When you turn to the right, the weight goes to the left (driver side), if the noise stops, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
If the noise does NOT go away, then you may have bad CV's.
Another way to check is by lifting and securing in jack stands. Vehicle in neutral and with your hands, rotate wheel with one hand. Other hand place on suspension component. Spring of strut. If you feel slight vibration, you may have a bad wheel bearing.
With vehicle on jack stands, one hand on top of wheel and other on bottom, try to see if you can move the wheel in and out which may be a had CV.

Is it a bearing or the cv-joint that makes a loud humming sound in the front end when driving at any speed?


ITS PROBABLY TOUR WHEEL BEARING . IF YOUR GOING DOWN THE ROAD AND THE LONGER YOU DRIVE THE LOUDER IT GETS. OR IF YOU TAKE YOUR WHEEL AND GO BACK AND FORTH A LITTLE WHILE MOVING AND THE NOISE COMES AND GOES ITS PROBABLY A BEARING . A CV JOINT WILL POP WHEN TURNING HARD AND ACCELERATING . THIS BEARING PRESSES IN WITH THE HUB ITS A PRETTY DIFFICULT JOB IF YOUR NOT A TECHNICIAN WELL GOOD LUCK

Clicking and popping in the wheel well when slowing down and speeding up and making turns


sounds like you should be having a good look at your drive shafts joints
if the cv joint's are worn they will click a lot

Growling noise from front of my taurus while driving, it also makes a whining noise when i steer hard left. i had the right front wheel bearing changed but the noise's are still there. also the inner cv...


It sounds like the CV joint, no they are not supposed to be loose, free to move but not loose like you describe, sort the CV then look at the wheel bearing as I imagine all the noises will disguise others
