I have a 2000 impala it has 170,000 miles I just bought it it makes a little roaring like road noise and when I turn to the left it get's worse everyone told me it's probadly the hub bearings but I changed them and when I did the hub cames came off in my hand after taking the axle bolt off no prying at all and I noticed the axles move very freely back and forth almodt to easy after replacing the hubs it seemd looser and still makes the noise when I turn left. I don't know what it is it don't sound like a CV jolt can you help. Thanks Tim Marler

Ok if the noise goes away when turning to the right....the noise is on the right side side as this unloads the bearing on the side you are turning to...the C.V Joiunts are victim as well, I picked up a complete axle reman for my Jeep for $75.00 at Auto Zone and if they have the tools needed for this or any job they will lend them to you as long as you get the parts from them and leave a refundable deposit.
Also check the tires, you may even try rotating them front to rear same side and see if the noise goes away. GoodLuck.

    Also be certain your motor mounts aren't broken as the engine can cause the same sounds with a load put on the loose mounts.

    You certainly need to rotate and balance your tires depending upon the amount of tread depth left on them, that inside tire wear facto is signs of at least a toe adjustment, but as the pot holes keep getting deeper after the rain falls etc I would certainly suggest the front end getting a complete wheel alignment.

    Try rotating and balancing first before going further with the CV Joint/axle replacements.

    If rortation fixes the noise get your wheels aligned and balanced after the rotation.

    I am going to go home and try this first. I will let you know if anything changes. Thanks Tim

    I will also check the motor mounts

    Ok I hope that works but even if it does don't forget to get it aligned.

I have an 02 impala Service traction control light comes on right away and when your driving down the road it makes a loud roaring sound when you turn to the left and goes away when you turn to the right....


Hi, your right front wheel bearing has failed. This induces vibration to the wheel speed sensor pickup that caused the traction control fault. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

If it's a "whining" , "grinding" or "roaring" noise - stay away from it ! 149,000 is a lot of miles for any vehicle, especially a 4x4 that could've been off-road and abused a lot.

Honda Pilot 111,000 miles. Wheel or tire noise?


it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.

Wheel noise or roar in front end with increased road speed


THIS NOISE IS USUALLY THE HUB. HAVE SOMEONE GO WITH YOU ON A TEST DRIVE. GET THE ROARING TO HAPPEN AT ITS LOUDEST AND GENTLY SWERVE THE CAR LEFT AND RIGHT. DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU THINK BOTH HUBS ARE BAD. LIFT THE FRONT OF THE CAR AND PUT IT ON JACK STANDS. PULL OUTWARD ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TIRE WHILE PUSHING INWARD ON THE TOP OF THE WHEEL. IF THE WHEEL MOVES EXCESSIVELY YOU FOUND THE HUB THAT IS NOISY. USING A MECHANICS STETHOSCOPE YOU CAN SOMETIMES HEAR A ROARING TYPE NOISE ON THE BACKING PLATE SIDE OF THE HUB WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING AND THE TRANS IN GEAR. TRY NOT TO GET THE SPEED UP TOO FAR ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN HEAR THE NOISE AT LOW SPEED, YOU DON'T WANT TO VIBRATE OFF THE STANDS.

We just bought our daughter a 1998 dodge neon for her first car. High miles..170,000. It ran great but the next day after bringing it home it began to make a Scrapping noise...LOUD! It sounded like...


This could be badly worn struts/rotars. For having 170,000 miles a lot of things could be worn. When did it make the scrapping noise? when you hit the brakes? If it sounded like it came from the rear of the vehicle i would have the axles checked for rust/old damage.
