It is most likely cause is going to be one of the front wheel bearings or hub assemblies

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

I have a 2011 Nissan Sentra. It has developed a loud hum and vibration to the steering wheel from the front end .it has 180,000km. Any ideas?


How are the tires? New? Old? Rotate them and see if noise goes away. Possibly front wheel bearing in the front drive axle where it goes thru the hub and rotor.......goes the noise get worse if you turn right or left slightly when driving it? If it gets worse on one side that is the side with the bad bearing.....replace as needed.

Front end humming


noise is a bad sign, best is to have mechanic find it
some noises can be very very dangerous to driver for sure
the testing person,
makes noise only moving, in all gears
does it make noise moving in Neutral, coasting,
does doing that, and carefully stalling engine coasting with noise stop the noise.... yes, find a safe place to do that.
i use a steelman electronic stethoscope to find most noises.
it has a clamp on microphone, its like a $35 tools, way less that taking the whole car apart.
it will find which corner or better.
sounds to me like a bad wheel bearing.
or bent backing plate
or caliper guide pins jammed, ,rusted, or bean rotor. or? or ?
if the 4wd is disengaged, the front gears dont turn, so.....
in fact that is it prime purpose... if the the air pump is off and the lever retrated, its off. id check that tool... is front axle decoupled.....
the FSM covers this test in 1 page.
as does alldata.com ,....

Humming noise from front left side


I hate to say it, but it sounds like something in the differential - transmission. The part about the noise and coasting fits a differential bearing noise. Making turns could put extra load on the bearings and gears in the transmission.

Protege5 maual trans makes a rubbing thumping kind of sound when you coast with the car in gear when you put clutch in it stops also makes noise when you turn a little left makes no noise though when you...


Does it make this noise every time you push in on the clutch, or just when coasting?
If it always makes noise when you push in the clutch, it could be the throw out bearing.
But if only coasting and not when turning left a little, then a front wheel bearing is more likely.
The brake will also wear faster, get hotter, feel a little spongy at first hit, and the brake pedal will vibrate if the wheel bearing is going. But if it is a wheel bearing, you can wait until it is worse.

1998 VW Cabrio loud humming from what sounds like the transaxle


Have you checked that the noise is not tyre noise?
Interchange the wheels front to rear (or left to right) to see if it has any effect on the noise.

Only do the test below if the car is securely chocked so as not to move, take great care not to contact moving parts!
Securely jack both the car drivewheels off the ground, then 'drive' the vehicle through through the problem drive speed/gears while listening for the noise. If the noise occurs under these circumstances you may be able to further localise the source by listening (very carefully!)with a short hose pipe held to the ear.

03 Trailblazer Front End Noise/Vibration


I had similar problem with my 03 trailblazer. It had a low dull hum in the front end with a little vibration being felt in gas pedal. Noise increased over a couple weeks and was louder turning to the left and quiter turning to right. A GM mechanic friend of mine replaced the front right hub and took care of the problem. Hub was about $160 at Autozone.

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.
