Check your Power Steering Fluid. I would suspect its low, if so, you have a leak and the most common thing to leak is the High Pressure Hose. Have that looked at ASAP, you dont want to destroy the PS Pump.

I have a 2007 Volvo s40 that makes a loud growling humming sound when driving just had new tires put on and it didn't change the noise.


You may have a faulty wheel bearing, if it's the front you may feel it in the steering wheel, turning side to side the noise may increase or decrease. If the noise is coming from the rear, you may feel it in your seat.

2003 Mitsubishi Outlander Grating Noise, Front Struts?


It very well could be the strut.
smaller chance could be the CV axle.
Also have the splash guards/heat shields checked to make sure they are all tight in place.

My 2000 dodge Durango is making a loud humming noise. When you go over 20mph. It feels like it is under my feet when I am driving and my steering wheel is vibrating. Any ideas what it nay be.


Check the front tyres for hi / low spots, flat spots, bulges. Try rotateing your wheels front to rear & see if the steering vibration disapears & noise move to rear.

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

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

2003 BMW 325i will start but making noise


It might be a faulty power steering pump. Try checking the level of the power steering fluid. It is probably best you have your power steering system checked by a mechanic.

Does the noise occur only when the vehicle is moving?

Try moving the steering wheel from side to side, while stationary (but don't do it too often, or you might damage something). If the noise is still present when the car is stationary, then it probably is the power steering system.

If the noise only occurs while the vehicle is moving, it could be a problem with the differential/final drive, or even wheel bearings.

Very loud "rubbing " sound when driving only


you did damage to the wheel bearing i bet it sounds like a airplane sound. also if you steering wheel is off 7"then have front end aligned because this will destroy the tires and they will make noise.

Loud grinding noise


The best way to check this is to remove the serpintine belt from the engine (be sure to make note of how it is routed around the pulleys.......most cars have a diagrahm siticker to show the routing under the hood some where).then give each of the pulleys a spin by hand,the only pulley you shouldnt be able to turn by hand is the one on the very bottom of the engine(Crank Pulley).all of the others should spin freely...if any of them feel tight or have a funny feel to them that is likely your problem.....keep in mind if you continue to drive it the way it is the bad acessory will make itself known,melt the belt off of the car and leave you stranded....as i type im also thinking you could be low on power steering fluid does the cars noise change if you turn the wheels while sitting idling? if so check the power steering fluid.......If neither of these things seem to be the problem.It could be the a\c clutch making some noise.....if a\c is unused for a while rust can build up between the pulley and the a\c clutch.If so simply turn on the a\c for a while and the friction should remove the rust and remedy the problem providing the a\c is charged and functioning properly........
hope this helps...Good Luck!

Seems to be problem with power steering. makes horrible grinding noise when turning left or right. have spent thousands with different mechanics. they have never figured it out. but it seems to be with the...


Do you have a Grand Cherokee with full time all wheel drive? If so the viscous coupler in the transfer case could be at fault. They fail 100% of the time in those jeeps at around 100,000 miles + or -. In tight turns after the t-case warms up the Jeep will make an awful howling noise and the tires will usually chirp on pavement. The only fix is an updated viscous coupler or a new t-case.
