Thump + hiss, moving, is a very bad sign.
why not get the car inspected by an ASE tech, mech.

and lots of other checks.
get is serviced , it might not be safe to drive it.

I have 2002 honda civic with noise coming from rear sounds like a noisey wheel bearing have jacked up both sides and spun wheels with no sign of noise .


Check Tires for feather edge. Join your fingers together, move around the rear Tire from front to back and vice versa on both of the rear Tires and feel the smoothness. If the tread of the Tire resist the fingers in one direction and smooth on the other, then the Tires may be producing the abnormal noise.
Temporarily bring both the front Tires to the rear and rear Tires to the front on the same side, drive the car and watch the noise. If the noise begins to come from the front end, then the Tires are defective and need replacement. . If the noise still comes from the rear wheels then the rear wheel bearings need replacement.(You can also rotate the Tires in criss cross manner temporarily)
The bearings often vary noise with and without load. Be sure to troubleshoot the noise before spending money on costlier spares.

Hissing sound like air from a tire coming from underneath rear driver's side


Sounds like you have something rubbing, since you are not loosing air and there is nothing else to hiss,, an exhaust leak would have a different sound. I have seen debris get wedged in the brakes and make a noise when you are underway. The sound would vary, depending on what sort of debris it is. I would remove the wheel and look for the culprit. Your brakes may need to be religned as well. Sometimes the audible brake wear sensor will make a noise like that. Good Luck! I hope this is very helpful!

Hissing noise coming from the rear of the car. I


probabbly not the brakes, maybe the tires but u need to check that, if u hear that noise with the engine running it might be a burned out gasket on your exhaust line

Grumbling Noise


yes it could cause the noise also having 80% tread is not good on the transfer case as it will constantly be putting stress on it. replace your fronts with matching tires and the noise should go away

Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel


I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
Good Luck
