You may have a wheel bearing going bad if you only hear the humming while moving. If you hear the humming while sitting still it may be a fuel pump going bad. Change the fuel filter if that is the case as it may be partially clogged and over working the fuel pump.

1998 mercury sable gs has humming noise coming from rearend drivers side.


noise travels in a car so what appears to be from a side may be coming from a center
if the hum is harmonic ( increase and decrease in volume level)or is dependent of speed it could be a tight "u" joint in the drive shaft
reverse is really not in the equation as you would never be going backwards as fast as forwards
I take it that the mileage at purchase is 70,000miles not 170,000 miles
could be normal drive line noise getting more pronounced as the suspension bushes firm up with age or collapse with age so rear engine mount, diff and suspension rubbers checked

Differential noise


indicates axle bearing failure rather than diff problems
diff failure is indicated by a growling noise on acceleration or deceleration or a constant harmonic hum while driving at a steady speed
from your description of where the noise is most pronounced indicates wheel bearings

When I pass 25 - 30 mph my car suddenly sounds like an airplane. It makes no sound when at a stop, only when in motion going past 30. at times it feels like it may be vibrating.


Hi, sounds like a bad wheel bearing, possible tire noise, if you can identify or narrow down which end of the car (front or rear) its coming from you can rotate your tires(front to back) and test drive and see if the sound moves to opposite end now. If not you can use a stethoscope or long screw drivers and spin each wheel by hand (vehicle not running!) and listen for a humming grinding sound while tires are off ground via a lift or jack.

Loud humming noise from drivers side front end changed hub assembly still have noise ????????????????


humming noise usually comes from wheel bearings. did you change that with a new bearing? also choppy or worn tires can cause humming noise that sounds like bad wheel bearings. rotate your tires and see if the noise changes. if so its tires. also even if it sounds like its from the right it could very well be a bad bearing in another location.

Vibration from rear on driver's side


Either the wheel is not balanced, rim is bent, or if it is accompanied by a humming sound then it is a bad wheel bearing.
