Question about 2002 Saturn VUE

1 Answer

I have a whirring noise which sounds like a bearing noise, but is not. i have had the bearings checked and also the noise does not increase or decrease when swerving left and right. The sound and tempo increases with the speed of the car and makes no difference wether in gear or not, the sound is still there. I have had the wheels checked too and aligned and balanced and the sound is still there. Any ideas? 2005 Audi A3 2.0 TDI Sport. BP

My 2003 Impala did this after I replaced two and moved the old back ones to the front. Really audible difference though the treads feel smooth and theres plenty of tread (bridgestones). Same 4 tires but the original back tires are staying on the back now with at least a year worth of wear left.

It makes a whirring shown like a fan slowing down all the time when driving,and caliper doesn't seem to be releasing right.


whirring noises are usually bearings here is a good test drive down the road and act like a down hill skier criss cross back and forth does noise change then it is front wheel bearings does not then it is rear differential bearings.

I am hearing a noise, like a whirring sound that speeds up with the acceleration and makes no noise when in park. Does this sound like cv joint trouble?


a whirring sound can be a bearing on a component under the hood.(power steering pump,alternator,idler pulley bearing,etc),it can also be a serpentine belt from a worn belt or belt tensioner a cv joint won`t make a whirring sound(it will cause a clunking noise or a vibration).

My 2000 Explorer makes a whirring sound when you accelerate - can this noise be due to a bent tierod? The previous owner had an accident involving the front end and was told that the tierod was haywire?


Typcially tie rods will only make a clunking noise or a squeak. The whirring sound if would suspect to be a wheel bearing. When you drive, slowly turn from left to right, if the pitch changes than its the bearing.

In 2 wheel drive there is a whirring sound from the front end followed by a loud clunk where it feels as though you have run over a large rock or chunk of ice. Does not seem to occur in 4wd


if the whirring you describe sounds like an airplane and increases with speed that would be a wheelbearing and it may be loose to cause the clunk noise. when it is put in 4 wheel drive that can load the bearing up and noise goes away.

Whirring, rotational type noise around 40 rpm


More than likely it is a wheel bearing, while driving and no other cars around, swerve the car back and forth and listen for the noise to increase. Usually which ever way you turned and the noise became louder, that is the side the bad bearing is on. Then you have to determind front or rear. While being a Technician, I have the benefit of raising the car on a lift and listening to the wheel bearings with a stethescope while the wheels are spinning to determind the bad bearing.

I have a whirring or griding in my drivetrain. I can coast donw a hill and let the engine idle and I still get the noise. It doesn't sound any different going around corners and gets louder as the speed...


this sounds like(no pun intended) you have a wheel hub bearing assembly failing. they will start a whirring or humming noise and then a growling or grinding noise the worse they get. from your description it is a rotational noise and gets louder and maybe a higher pitch as the vehicle speed increases. have this checked out right away so no further damage is done. they are not cheap assemblies as most GM and Saturn vehicles have the ABS sensor built into them(if your Vue has ABS).

Differential making annoying whirring sounds.


this noise is caused by the pinion bearing in most cases, of course without removing the bearing to look for pits in the race it is at best an educated guess.

Whirring noise in the front-end of a 2000 Cirrus


it does sound like wheel bearing a cv joint dont make noise and then stop but you can jack the car up and in neutral try to shake the tire from side to side.to see if you have any play then turn the wheel by hand try to feel for roughness in bearing. let me know what you find. Phil.
