Question about 2003 Toyota Sequoia

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Toyota Sequoia Limited 2WD that has a lot of road noise. It makes a humming sound similar to mud tires when going at speeds above 20 mph. I have ruled out tires/Front bearings/hub because i changed all of them. I use Yokohama Geolander H/T-S if this info helps and the previous tire change was to the same brand and model as the stock tires which still made that noise. Just changed it about 150 miles ago to rule the tires being the cause of the noise. It gets progressively louder as speeds increase. I dont think it is the rear bearings affecting the front to make that noise since it is a 2WD version (maybe I'm wrong?). I am exhausted from trying to figure out the noise. Any suggestions on what it may be or have any other people having same problems? Thankyou

Did you recently change your tires? An aggresive tread design, like a mud and snow tread, can create road noise that becomes more noticable at higher speeds. Bad wheel bearings can also produce a "roaring" sound, especially in front wheel drive cars. To check them, jack the front wheel up and spin the tire by hand. It won't spin smoth and even, there will be some resistance and you will hear grinding or crunching.

If your transmission was low enough on fluid, it could conceivably make noise. Also check your U joints or CV joints for play. any play in them will make noise although it is usually accompanied by a feeling of looseness or "jerking", especially when making changes in direction or speed.

There can be a lot of reasons for noise, but start by checking these things first. Hope this helps.

You say it does it in gear or not? I ASSUME it only makes noise when the car is moving? and whines according to road speed? Get wheels offthe ground and spin each wheel. now grab the coil spring above each wheel and feel for a vibration.

My 2007 Chevy Tahoe makes a humming like sound as if I have mud grip tires on it. Which it don't


Tires could be cupped or worn due to not being rotated regularly, and or alignment/balancing issues, this would cause this sound as if you have 40" Mud Swampers on it. Another possibility is a wheel bearing going bad, but being it's so new, would be doubtful. If tires are causing this noise due to the above, the only thing that would get rid of the noise, is new tires unfortunately.

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.

i want you to feel all 4 tires, feel for lots of flat spots. feel all the way around them. they might have flat spots on them. this will cause this noise. you neer to rotate your tires at 3,000 miles front to back. this will stop them from cupping out. thats what the tire store calls it. have your tires checked for balance when you rotate them. your tire with flat spots will make a good spare tire. switch the bad one to your spare to see if the noise gets changes

I have the same problem and it turned out the rear wheel bearing wad the culprit. Not a cheap fix (around 300.00) since you have to replace the whole assy.
