    I would say wheel bearings, but what make and model is the vehicle?

  • Anonymous Mar 26, 2014

    While driving, heard a thudding noise. Thought I had a flat tire. Kept the motor running and got out to see. Tires were fine. Got back in and put the car in drive and it would not move. Will back up and motor sounds great. No previous problems or noises at all. What could this be? Thanks Fran

I had the same problem on my Envoy. Had a roar that sounded like I was driving over the sleeper strips on the side of a highway (although not near that loud) when driving down the road. It was the wheel bearing. I picked one up off of ebay for around 175 and took about an hour to replace. It wasnt all that hard.

Most likely a wheel bearing issue....if noise goes away when turning....most likely is the bearing....which side is bad is difficult to decide,and they can be pricey...they are bolt in..so not a lot of labor ...good luck...Lee

Rear end noise, shaking


Check the rear driveshaft u-joints. Most likely the rear u-joint at the differential is seized/seizing. May here a rotational squeaking at low speeds. If you want to check it yourself. Remove the rear driveshaft and move the u-joint in each direction and check for tightness. Do so with both ends. Let me know how it works out for ya!

Sounds like the CV joint is shot - this is a front-wheel drive car, right. The side that it jumps to has a bad CV bearing that needs to be replaced would be my bet.

I would put money on a bad wheel bearing, but could not rule out the CV joint on the half shaft. With weight off the tire, generally a loose wheel bearing reveals by rocking the tire. Take it to a shop.

Alot of road noise from front of car, suspect cv or drive train issue , As speed increases noise gets louder. Engine runs smooth, new tires 6mos. ago, alignment good.


MOST LIKELY CAUSE OF THIS IS THE WHEEL BEARING, DEFECTIVE CV JOINTS ONLY MAKE NOISE IN TURNS AND THAT IS A CLICKING NOISE,.

Saturn SL1, growling and vibration coming from right front wheel,


Might be a hub bearing. Those make a growling noise when they are bad. When it is on jack stands you should be able to put your hands on the top of the tire and the bottom of the tire and move it back and forth. and the same with putting your hands on the right and left side of the tire. if you can and it moves back and forth then the bearing is back. but becarefull not to get the movement confused with a bad ball joint or tire rod. which could also be your problem but they dont make a growling noise

YES THE CV AXLES DO MAKE A SIMILAR NOISE WHEN GOING BAD BECAUSE THE CAGE THAT THE BALL-BEARINGS ARE IN VIBRATE AS THEY ROTATE. A CLICKING SOUND AROUND TURNS ARE ANOTHER INDICATION OF BAD CV AXLES.HOPE THIS SOLVES THE PROBLEM. KEEP ME POSTED PLEASE. GOOD LUCK AND THANKS FOR YOUR HONEST RATING.

1999 alero the front end makes noise like the wheel bearing or


if its clicking when you turn the wheal, then its a cv joint. If its making a bump bump bump noise as you go down the road and increases with speed and slows with speed then its probably a bering, It sounds like you have hit something and caused your ball joints to damage. take a board 2x4 about 2 foot long. jack up the car in the front, just enough to fit the board under the tires. At each tire lift the board and see if you have any movement in the wheal. The movement you are looking for will be up and down, not side to side. Your steering moves side to side. Your ball joints give you limited up and down rotation movement to allow your car to handle bumps. If its in access of an inch rotation then there is your problem. Depending on the car, I would probably look at salvage yards first then go to the part store and compare prices. Because some junk yards are chaging near new prices for used stuff. Also your struts may be shot also.
