Bad wheel bearing maybe. jack it up and try to rock the wheels up/down and left/right (not in the direction of rotation, I've seen people try that before). Any movement in those directions indicated a bad bearing. That could cause your rattle. If you have plastic wheel covers that could also be the problem, take them off and see if the noise goes away.

Vibration on 2004 Cadillac Deville


If a hub bearing was bad, it almost always would make noise, more so when changing lanes at higher speed. Outer CV joints make a loud low pitched rattle when turning (corners). Inner CV joints raise hell at high speed- bad shake! Sway links affect cornering and clunk when hitting rough patches of road surface.
Is the vibration worse at 65 than at 50? If so, you are dealing with a wheel balance situation. Find an old time front end shop that will check the balance on the vehicle. You will have to turn off the traction control to do this or use an on-the-car wheel balancer.
If you feel it at some low speeds at it comes back at other higher speeds, then you are dealing with tire roundness. Possible more than 1. More common than we would like.

Steering wheel movement


Could be your tie rods coming out of the rack and pinion and attached to the wheels. Grasp the tie rod near where it attaches to the wheel and see if you can shake, twist or move it. If you feel any play or looseness at all in the tie rod joint, then it is worn badly. Both outer tie rods at each wheel should be replaced. If the outer tie rods are tight, you can't move them with your hands, then have a shop check your inner tie rods for wear. Have them check the ball joints for wear, also. Or you can raise the wheel off the ground. Be safety conscious. Grab the tire at top and bottom. Can the tire move in and out, feel play in the lower ball joints? Any side to side play in the wheel? Maybe you can spot the looseness at the tie rod or balljoint. Maybe you'd better let a shop look at it.
A CV joint wouldn't have those symptoms. A wheel bearing possibly, but usually accompanied by a grinding noise. Have it checked out.

Grinding and poping driving straight when i turn right it is a lot worse.!!!!


CV joints are bad. Look for torn boots and grease.

You do not state which vehicle, so the initial response is the CV joints. however depending on vehicle, you may have a dry upper ball joint on the left check the boot seal and grease it if there is a zerk fitting. On the right side, look for burnished areas where the tire may be rubbing. Also make sure wheels are adequately tight as well. inspect ball joint boots for damage, especially the upper ball joint- any damaged or missing ball joint boots warrant replacement. Also check the other steering components for play- they should be tight with no play. But they should rotate freely.

If you hear thumping when you go over bumps chech the sway bar links up front. There will be awishbone shaped link that is attached tot he frame, and the ends are attached to the lower control arms. The links should be snug.

There is a rattling noise coming from my drivers side front tire, i have checked the lugnuts & everything seems tight?? any ideas would be appreciated.


Hard to tell without hearing it.
But you could have a pebble behind a wheel cover.
The wheel bearing could be going bad, but then you would also have some vibration through steering and brake.
The CV joint could be bad, but that would be worst on tight turns.

Is this only while driving it, or if you jack it up and spin the tire?
Does it feel loose when jacked up?
Is it hotter than normal?

In the driver side of the wheel it does a cracking nose when turning


Are both front tires at equal pressures? If they are you will have to replace the drivers side CV joint. If one tire is lower than the other then equalize them. If one is lower, the distance traveled is less than the higher one & this will cause excessive wear on the CV joints. Good luck!

Honda Pilot 111,000 miles. Wheel or tire noise?


it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.

Left turns sometimes makes knockin noise seems left front, i see that the outside of that tire is worn too. I had front brakes/rotors replaced and seems since then it was happenin but not always


Could also be the upper ball joint, put a jack under the lower control arm and jack the left wheel off the ground, the trick is to try to get it at normal ride hight, grab the tire at the top and bottom and try to push and pull the top in and out inline with the ball joint. have a helper eye the ball joint and see if there is any motion(play) at the joint. If not, check the bottom the same way. if they are both good, try it side to side to check the tie rods for play, make sure the steering wheel is locked. if all checks good than it is probably the cv joint if the truck is four wheel drive, if it is not four wheel drive it's definately is not a cv joint because you don't have them. For the four wheel drive model, go to a large parking lot, put the truck in a tight left turn, this will stress the cv joint, making it click, you will hear the noise from the side with the bad joint. Then tru a hard right turn, then do the same things again, this time driving in reverse. That should allow you to isolate the noise, Please rate this four thumbs up if it helped, i appreciate your feedback. Thanks, Bob

My 2002 Dodge Neon makes a loud, almost grinding noise in the front end which is worse in the morning and lessens as it drives and warms up. Hear the noise only at lower speeds. There is no vibration...


I'd say there's no grease left in the CV joint boots, if it's front wheel drive. Something you should check right away, as your car has about reached that age, and if you run it without grease in the boots, you'll eat up the joints in a big hurry, and that's costly and dangerous as well.

My 1992 Honda Accord EX-R makes a clunking/rattling sound...


It's probably your cv (constant velocity) joint. Jack up the honda and put it on safety stands, look at the area behind the center of both front wheels, there is a rubber boot. This boot protects the cv joint from dirt, road grime, water, salt, etc. If you see splits in it or grease on the boot, it has deteriorated, and is letting contaniments in. The damage has already been done if it makes a rattling noise going around corners at slow speed. I changed both cv joints (purchased rebuilt axles for $49 each) in my 92, but it is a big job labor wise. There's a lot to take apart to remove the axles.
