Maybe its your brakes/brake pads? if you're sure its not the bearings, I would remove brake caliper, spin the wheel and see what happens!

I have a 2004 chevy impala that has a humming noise when driving. I jacked up the car and checked for the noise by spinning the wheels, but couldnt hear it any ideas what it could be?

Did you have any play in the wheel bearing..Jack it up and grab the wheel from top to bottom and see if you have any play..They use a sealed bearing..Sometimes it wont make a noise without having weight on it...

Steering wheel moves back and forth while driving gets better after 30 mph. The back tires make a kind of a huming sound?

I would say your van needs an alignment job and the humming noise is probably a bad wheel bearing. It usually makes that humming noise Rachel. I would check them. Pretty sure that is what it is. 4 thumbs up is greatly appreciated if you appreciate the reply. If you have another question Rachel, don't hesitate to ask me. Have a good evening.

There is a very loud humming noise coming from the front left tire! plz I await your reply. Thks.

You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop

Frony endmakes a humming noise

I would have a front end alignment done, because toe-in can wear tires and make a humming noise. Could also be wheel bearings, which an alignment would also catch. Could even be a bent rim or tire bulge, which they should also catch. Just make sure you tell them about the hum. It could as simple as the tires were incorrectly rotated from one side to the other. That can cause a hum as well, because of stretched cords.

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.

1998 chevy cavalier 2.2l wheel noise

usually if noise is made when turning right it would be the right wheel bearing easiest way to check would be to lift the car off the ground on that side until tire clears the ground and spin the wheel to see if it makes noise also try grabbing the wheel on the top and bottom at the same time and see if you can move the wheel back and forth checking for slack.

Humming noise coming from left front tire, just started two days!

If the tires are wearing normal then its not the ball joint. If it worse while turning one way and quieter turning the other way it a wheel bearing. A ball joint does'nt make a constant noise.

Humming from wheels

usually signs of a wheel bearing issue, is a vibration over 55mph. You can raise each tire off the ground (one at a time,follow the instructions inside your owners manual, chock the wheels, and you a jack stand) put your hand at 12 and 6 (clock position) and try to rock the wheel back and forth. Any free-play in the bearing would mean you do. Also you can spin the wheel and if the bearings sound noisy then you need them. But take a look at the tread on the tires, if the tread isn't flat across, if there is unusual wear that could be causing your noise. You can try rotating the tires to see if that helps.
