Question about 1999 Toyota Camry
1999 Camry with 61K miles was always a quiet ride. It recently developed an annoying whine (?) unrelated to engine speed. It sounds like really noisy tires on a rough road (but it isn't.) Noise starts at about 20 mph and gets louder the faster you go. Swerving will change the pitch of the sound. If this weren't a Camry, I'd suspect wheel bearings were the source of the noise. Are Camry bearings supposed to be repacked at some interval? (Couldn't find reference to wheel bearing service in Owners Manual).
If you have eliminated the tires as the issue I would also suspect the wheel bearings. There is no time when to have the bearings have to be repacked in any manufacturer's manual that I have ever encountered but the best time to inspect and at the same time lubricate them is when you have the breaks removed for you regular maintenance. Bearings should exceed 100k miles but certain load and road condition would make this vary from one owner to another.
