I had something like this happen similar with my girl friends car not to long ago. It was after she got her tires replaced I belive they messed up the rotors or something like that so they were grinding against the curometer. Idk if im getting the right words here, but its the circular part where the brake pad attaches to. We replaced the rotor and brake pads and then it ran just fine and didnt rumble or anything like that. So idk. That might be it im not sure. hope it helps.

1999 Lexus RX300 left rear wheel has a rumbling noise sounds like cv joint or bearing its all wheel drive.


Spin that wheel by hand as fast as you can. If you can hear the noise coming from right behind the tire it's probably a wheel bearing.

Where do i locate speed sensor? 98 cavalier


Speed sensors are usually located on the differential in RWD cars and on the transaxle (which combines the transmission and differential) in FWD cars. The cavalier is a FWD (front wheel drive) car, so the speed sensor is located on the transaxle.
The exact location in the 98 cavalier is behind the engine toward the passenger side mounted onto the transmission with one nut and it has a plug with 2 wires on it. Can be easily accessed by jacking up the car and removing the passenger side front wheel.

Clunk noise from front passenger side when


That noise sounds to me like a Ball Joint problem. I would check to see if you have fittings to grease the front suspention.

Strange raddling noise from front passenger side


if the noise only happens when the vehicle is in motion...check the front suspension. place the jack under lower control arm ,then get a bar and lift up on the tire..ball joint issues are well known in blazers and cause this condition. if it does the rattle noise when its idling and to op temp--could be the cat converter causing the noise on pass side directly under passenger seat. when cold, smack the cat with rubber mallet and if any rattle is present, cat should be replaced so it dont cause further damage .hope that was helpful !!

2000 Lincoln LS rumble from 40 - 45 mph


See If the pitch changes when you swerve the car from left to right. You don'e have to swerve hard enough to scareanyone, just enough to load one side more than another. If the pitch changes, you likly have a bad wheel bearing or tire. Tires will make any noise a wheel bearing will so switch tires first side to side and see if the problem fgollows the tires. If not then check the wheel bearing.
Also and maybe first:

The fact that the noise is limited to such a narrow speed could also indicate an aerodynamic issue such as a roof rack or bike rack or somthing like that having moved and is now vibrating.

98 Chevy Lumina has front end noise (rumble) from 10 mph and above. It gets increasingly louder as you accelerate. It does not change by coasting or applying the brakes. Also does it in reverse but not...


I may be a wheel bearing. Try shifting the weight of the car on the front tires by turning the wheelslightly while driving about 30 MPH. Don't turn enough to change lanes, just enough to put the load on the outside bearing. It may quiet down in one direction. The failed bearing is generally the side that you turned to in order to make the noise go away. Say the noise goes away when you steer to the right, the failed bearing is usually the right one.

You can also check for play by jacking up the car and shaking the tire. There should be no play.
