My Dodge Grand Caravan is making a humming noise as you accelerate, while turning left it stops but gets worse while turning right. I replaced the left front wheel hub and no improvement, I need help

if hub bearing replacement did not fix the noise

when noises are on left and right turns
that has CV joints /drive shafts
would say they are the issue
replace both sides

and replace the left hand hub bearing at the same time

It sounds like an issue with your steering or suspension. Because it gets louder and faster as you drive, it is almost certainly something that is either loose, or worn out. I have seen tires that have a bump or a blister on them to create a bumping noise, like you're driving over several speed bumps at once. I would take it to a trusted place and just have them do a front end inspection. Some places will even do this for free, hoping they'll find a problem and make their money back. I believe that Midas was doing free front end inspections. If not, lots of places will do it when you get your oil changed, etc. You may want to look under it yourself and just see if you can push or pull on anything and feel any slack or looseness.

When im driving the car moans and moans even louder when i turn the wheel, the faster i drive the louder the sound gets

You should check the power steering fluid level first. However, you said the noise gets louder if you turn the wheel. That sounds like a front hub bearing. To check the front and rear hubs, raise the tires off the ground one at a time. Try to move the tire in & out at the top, sides and bottom. spin the tire if you can. Only a tiny amount of play, if any, is acceptable. If you hear or feel rumbling or roughness when turning the tire, the hub is bad and must be replaced

Brakes hanging up or axle is going out. CV boot is probably torn and you are hearing bearings crashing around. Check before it goes out or you may end up crashing and stranded

Rubbing/humming noise from front end felt through floor board.

This sounds like you have a wheel {known as ahub} that needs to be replaced. If this is so the noise will get louder.

My suburban makes a loud, pulsing humming noise when I let of the acelerator. I know I am in bad need of an alignment. All my fluid levels are good. I have had someone say bearings, u joint, rear diff........

Most likely it's the bearings...they normally hum..but they get louder the faster you go...Try to tell the difference if the noise is coming from the back or the front...You also said all your fluids are good, but did you check your rear diff. fluid...An ailgnment has nothing to do with the noise...Now your u-joints they wont hum either, all that will do is either click real lound when uou first put it in drive or reverse...after that, if they get any worse, they will fall off, and your drive shaft will be on the floor...

Humming sound gets louder the faster i go 05 scion tc

Rather than guess witch one it is( sounds to me to be a wheel bearing or hub bearing) just chg. out both, but if it gets louder when you make a right turn i would say its the left side sense when you make a right turn you are putting more forse and weight on that side.

Humming sound

Does it get louder the faster you go? and does it go away when you turn the wheel one way and not the other? 99.9% sure its your wheel bearing :) lmk if im right!
