SOURCE: front wheel noise whilst driving

Yes it sounds like a wheel bearing.I would jack the suspected wheel off the ground and then grab it from the top and bottom and then try to move it with a push and pull movement.If the wheel moves that is most likely the bad one.I would also try the other wheel just to be sure.The bearing isn't to bad a price but the bearing needs to be pressed in and out to be replaced.

SOURCE: Whining Noise

Hi, this sound is most likely coming from the power steering pump. I would first, check the power steering fluid level to see if it is full. if its not at the full mark, add some fluid. If the fluid reservoir is full upon inspection and the whining continues, the pump may be damaged and the pulley on the power steering pump could be slightly out of sync with the pump housing.

The second issue could be belt slippage. i would do a tension check on the drive belt and pulleys as well. make sure there isn't any ware and tare on the belt and make sure the tension is to specs.

Please rate and god bless:)

SOURCE: Steering wheel vibration and whine noise from rear of car

Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.

Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.

Good luck,
bob

When I accelerate forward from a comp stop my car makes a loud grinding/screeching by the front driver side. Once running the noise stops but until it catches speed it makes the sound. What is that?


It could be several things, and I'm going to assume that the vehicle is front wheel drive.

First possibility is the constant velocity joint on the driver's side is worn out.

Second possibility is the wheel bearing on the driver's side.

As to the shaking at 70+mph, you may have an alignment problem, or some issues with the suspension components on that side of the car.

Does the noise get worse when accelerating from a stop, and turning, at the same time?

Whining noise at speed 35/40 left front side wheel 2000 infinity qx4


Try driving at 35/40, so you can hear the noise, try swerving (just a little) to the left, if the noise goes away, when you swerve, you most likely have a bad wheel bearing on that side.

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed


One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.
