The inside of the muffler is most likely falling apart,the popping noise is most likely the tie rod ends,or the ball joints,you can check the tie rods by lifting the two front wheels up off the ground by jacking the car up,and lock the steering wheel straight,moving the wheels with your hands like you where turning in,right,and left,and look at the tie rod ends to see if they are worn out and giving,one wheel will move before the other one,and the center link might move up ,and down if the idle arm is bad also.

What is causing loud muffler-like sound?


Could be a broken joint between the muffler and the exhaust pipe.
Could be a loose coupler on the exhaust pipe .

you could get it checked at an exhaust service center where they can hoist car up and look under the car and give you a report on iys cause and likely cost to fix.

1999 ford explorer limited whining noise in front end


Whining noise is probably in one of the pulleys or belts. Probably the power steering. And the popping is probably CV axles.

Based on your description: 150K+left rear slowed down much quicker than the right +/ and the humming noise, there is a great possibility that the Wheel Bearings will have to be replaced.

Loud slam & jolt after touching breaks & loud pop in sharp turn


First the obvious, I can't tell by sound descriptions. But it is helpful nonetheless. Have you visually inspected wheels? Removed wheel and looked at brake pads? Calipers sticking? Have they ever been rebuilt? System purged of old brake fluid? Are blazers front wheel drive? or even 4 wd? then front drive system is causing noise when steering. Not front driven? Then I don't have a clue.

Recently noticed when driving over 40mph, I hear a loud humming like tire tread noise, coming from the front. When I'm turning right it gets worse. Turn left and it virtually vanishes. Is this the...


yes.this means the left wheel bearing is bad, because when you turn right the pressure is pushing down on the left wheel causing noise and when you turn left the pressure then pushes down on the right side removing pressure from the left side causing noise to stop.. this is why when you turn one way or the other the noise stops and starts.

I am not sure if the wheel bearing on the front end is broke. it makes a loud poping noise when turning and the wheel is towed in


Loud popping/grinding most noticeably heard when turning is normally a sign of a bad CV joint. Look under the van where the axle half-shafts come out of the transaxle and connect to the backside of the wheel assembly. Are the rubber boots on the axles torn or missing?
If you hear the popping only in left turns, your right CV joint is bad, If you hear the popping only in right turns, your left CV joint is bad.

Rear acceleration noise


Try rear wheel bearings. The cause a roaring noise that increases with acceleration. Sounds very similar to loud road noise.

Terrible Front End noise


Good Day,
It would make sense that it is suspension related as it does not make noise at idle but going down the road it does. I would lean towards it being a bad wheel bearing. Does it sound like it's coming from one side or the other? Also how many miles on the car? Does it get louder when the wheels are turning?

You can check the bearing easily by jacking up that wheel and moving it side to side and up down checking for play, a little bit of play is normal.

Hope this helps and Good Luck
