Your car should be a front wheel drive which means no rear differential. Try jacking up the rear of you car (if capable) and spin you tires to listen for any noise's. Could be a bearing or brakes getting to low and rubbing the rotor.

Wheel initally with start making a washing machine noise or grinding sound when doing sharp turns the opposite of the wheel side as the outer race will generally go bad first. You may also notice the rim heating up due to friction. Grinding at low speed or a growling sound would dictate an inspection.

In most cases the problem is a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.

Humming noise from front drivers side tire, is it the tie rod? how do I fix?


hello
most of the time when there is a humming noise other then a brake noise you have a wheel bearing bad the best way to tell if it is a wheel bearing making noise is while you are driving down the road and the vehicle is making the noise slightly turn the steering wheel left to right if the noise changes at all replace the wheel bearings gm cars are notorious for wheel bearing
good luck chris

My 2005 Ram 2500 cummins is making a grinding noise on the drivers side wheel area. The noise happens when I back out of my driveway and turn the wheel or when I turn slow, like backing out of a parking...


Its more then likely a wheel bearing. Try taking it down the highway and turning left and right erratically. Almost like a swerve. If you hear the noise I would put money down on the wheel bearing.

Grinding/Low Whining noise when turning


sounds like the power sterring pump check valve is failing because it only when you turn, try to turn the wheels standing still to verify the noise, if noise present, replace the ps pump.
