Start with checking the simple things:
1. Tire pressure, oil levels etc.
2. Check for uneven tire wear...run your hand over the surfaces of the tire for uneveness. Could be caused by out of balance tires.
3. Brake rotors/pads worn
4. Check rear wheel bearings
If you can, provide more info for us.

With the short description you gave, If I was to take a guess I would say you have a wheel bearing noise. Mazdas are very common for this problem.

Good Luck and I hope this helps a little.

Loud noise when 4 high button is pressed while driving in 2 high


engaging 4wd at speed is not recommended as the syncro set up is for low speed operation only Using 4wd on hard surfaces especially with your tyres does not allow the wheels to slip and so you get torque wind up in the transmission. This prevents the gears from disengaging as there is excessive load on the teeth. To unload the wind up either drive on a grass/ gravel/ slippery surface or stop and allow the vehicle to run backwards. IT all amounts to driving technique and knowing when and where to engage 4wd. There are plenty of books /magazines that explain the damage that will be done to the vehicle running gear if run in 4wd for long periods on hard surface roads.

Micra K13 Loud Noise at Higher Speeds


I've just bought a K13 Nissan Micra and it doesn't sound quite right. The noise I hear also seems to be coming from the back but it sounds like when you chop down a gear in a manual going down a hill and the engine revvs, well this is the noise I get in the automatic speeding up and slowing down, even just cruising at a steady speed. Any ideas people? Apart from this noise I love this car.

I hear a loud grinding noise when i drive my car


Check front tyres & wheel bearings espesially the R/H/F. Feel tyre for high / low spots on inside & jack up & spin wheel if you get noise while jacked up it is not the tyres but wheel bearing or brake pads but more than likly a crook bearing by the sound of it. It needs to be tended to ASAP

My 2004 Monte Carlo SS runs loud and it never did before. It's loud at low and high speeds, but seems to sound worse at low speeds. I do need a front end alignment (the car drifts to the left); would...


that depends on if you think the noise is coming from the motor, or the actual road noise that comes with driving , its probably the same at both speeds but sine you have less air and outside noise,, you hear it more at lower speeds. does it make the same noise when started but not moving? if you answer that yes, then its something else besides road noise, if it is no, then get your front end checked, it could be anything from a bad alignment to a bad wheel bearing, or bad brake ,

Today a noise started coming from underneath the hood of my 1999 Ford Taurus that sounded like a very loud lawnmower. It seems to do this both while driving and while idle, although the noise is...


Hello, This could be an indication your A/C is low on Freon or your Power Steering pump is low on fluid. Both systems are made to increase the idle speed to make the system work better. What happens in the case of the A/C, is the A/C compressor puts a strain on the motor when it engages the electric clutch on the compressor.

The A/C is wired such that when the compressor clutch engages, the engine RPM is increased to maintain the idle speed. The controls do this automatically and when your compressor is low of Freon, there is little resistance and the engine overspeeds. You are burning up your compressor if you lose the lubricant packaged inside it. That noise you hear is a dry compressor.

Turn your A/C or Defroster off and see if the overspeed and the noise stop. The compressor will run in the Defrost cycle too! Eventually your A/C will lose more of the Freon until the low pressure switch cuts the power to the compressor completely.

Some front wheel drive cars have a boost sensor in the power steering assembly for increasing the idle speed when you are turning the steering at low speeds. If the fluid level is low, it tricks the sensor into speeding up the idle to assist steering. Like in the A/C example, you can get overspeed when the fluid levels are low.

I hope my solution is very helpful in fixing your problem. Have your Freon checked or throw in an "OIL Charge" with the proper type of oil for your compressor. Then check your Power steering.

My car makes a loud clunking noise at around 65mph.


Not sure if this is this answer, but I had a problem with a noise under the front end once....turned out to be the cowling under the front bumper....it was broken and it took a high speed to force it down enough to hit the road.

Good luck!!

'04 Corolla Grinding noise when breaking


Even though there may be some brake pad remaining, sometimes you need to machine or replace the rotors in order to get rid of a noise. Rotors can develop a bad wear pattern that acts against a glazed pad to produce a loud noise even if they are not worn out. Replace the front brakes, pads and rotors.

Fan motor very loud at low speeds


sounds like something inside blower fan that should not be there , higher speed causes outward force inside so that whatever is in there is forced against the blades and therefore is not as loud
