Hi!!

If the noise does not go away when the vehicle is not moving then your problem is in the engine or one of the components.

Check:

Water Pump
Alternator
Belt Tensioner Bearing
Power Steering Pump

Try to identify the source by having somebody step on the gas while you check the noise. If not sure where it is coming from, get a 3 ft. piece of garden hose,place one end on your ear and touch the items I mentioned, making sure to avoid touching movig parts.

If the noise comes from the Power Steering Pump, check the fluid, if Ok,Replace it. The same goes for the other items.

Good Luck!!

Mazda mpv 2006 repack wheel bearing


There is a little difference between the front and rear. The days of packing wheel bearing is almost over. The front bearing you have to pull the hub and change to bearing. The rear wheel you have to change out the hub bearing and all. The front is a sealed bearing and not serviceable. Please rate my answer so I am rewarded points for it.

My car makes a bad growling noise. Everyone said that it was a front wheel bearing because that tire was worn down really bad on the outside. I replaced the passenger front wheel bearing, and it is still...


WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

How do i change wheel speed sensor on a 2001 grand am se


2001 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4L SFI DOHC 4cyl

Vehicle Speed Sensor - Location:
The speed sensors are built right into the wheel bearings of your vehicle, at the front and rear locations. They work both with the anti-lock brakes and with the traction control systems on the vehicle.

Removal & Installation
Front
The front wheel speed sensor is part of the hub/bearing assembly. Refer to Wheel Hub and Bearing Replacement in Front Suspension for service procedures.
Rear
The rear wheel speed sensor is part of the hub/bearing assembly. Refer to Wheel Hub and Bearing Replacement in Rear Suspension for service procedures.

I hope help you with this (remember rated this help) Have a nice day, good luck.

Abs and brake light stay on continously


Could be one of the speed sensors on the front wheels. I believe the sensor comes with the wheel bearing assembly.

It's probably not that the wheels are moving at a different speed. It sounds like a simple alignment issue to me. Installing a bearing could have thrown it off. You should just have a simple alignment job done.

Noise in front end, sounds like wheel bearings, 110,000 miles, rear end axles and bearings replaced, sounds still present, louder when making left turn when weight of vehicle shifts to front end right side


You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.
