00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

What is this roaring sound in the front right axle


If the roaring sound get louder at highway speeds try veering side to side in your lane safely of course to see if the roar noise changes,this would indicate a hub & wheel bearing assembly issue and would need to be replaced.

Roaring sound coming from rear. when driving down the the highway the noise gets a little louder. i can hear it really well when i am on my way to work in the morning.


Roaring sounds that get louder with speed is usually the bearings. A mechanic can check this on a lift. Some vehicles need them to be pressed in, others come as one unit with the hub assembly. Good luck!

Front Driver Side


If the noise changes when you turn side to side while driving you have bad wheel bearing. (Hub Assy)

My 04 ford explorer is making a loud humming noise when driving. The noise is coming from front and gets louder the faster you drive.


Try to rotate the tires to rule that out.If not then it sounds like the wheel bearing is going out, on some cars you can replace the bearings on others youi have to replace the hub assembly

2001 Chevrolet Cavalier front End Roar


You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

Alero loud humming/roaring sound coming from front end.


That's indicative of a wheel bearing, which is why you were told to change that out. However, it's also possible that the carrier bearings in the differential (where the drive axles attach) have gone bad. That happened to me on my 300ZX several years ago, and I had to replace the diff bearings. I would have them checked out somewhere other than a dealer (you'll probably get a better price from an independent shop).

As a sidenote, to be sure it wasn't a wheel bearing, if you hear it quiet down in a turn one way but get louder in a turn the opposite way, it's likely the wheel bearing. If you turn left at speed and it gets louder, then it's the right bearing (since you're loading up that side of the car). If it gets quieter in a right turn, it's the right side (you're unloading that side of the car and not putting as much weight on it, so it doesn't drag as badly). See if you get that symptom just to be sure that the wrong side front wheel bearing wasn't changed.
