Hi, this sounds to me like the inside pads are worn down enough to give off the warning sound that the pads are about to hit metal. It will make this noise even when you don't apply the brakes. You will here it in reverse and in drive. Look at the rims to see if they have black break dust on them or the hub caps, which ever you may have. I would jack it up and block back wheel first, set parking brake and remove the tire. Take a light and look at the inside and outer rotor for wear and the thickness of the pads. If the pads are worn bad and the rotors are down to metal, you will need to remove the rotors and go to Kragen auto and they will turn them for around $20.00 per rotor. Pads are around $22.00 to do both front wheels. You may get away just replacing the pads. If this is something you would like a brake shop to take on, you will at least know what the noise was, and hopefully you caught it in time. Be sure not to forget to rate me as I know you will be kind to me. Please keep me posted on this as I will be checking in with you.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Sounds like I have a flat tire but don't


Yes it is a thumping type sound when the front wheels rotate when driving. You need to have the wheel bearings checked.

While driving my car is making a noise like i have a flat tire but all the tires are fine


check the wheel bearings and drive shafts also does it do it on the same bit of road as the difference on road surfaces can make the tyres sound strange also get the pads on the breaks checked as well hope this helps ivan

I have a Sentra 2001 with Winter tires and it seems that the noise from driving has suddenly increased by double. It sounds like a plane. The car idles fine so it isn't an engine problem. What could it be?


The first thing to try is to rotate the tires. Tread wear will definitely change the road noise heard by the driver especially with winter tires.

If the noise does not at least change somewhat after rotation then the problem is not tire related.

Rear wheel


does the van shake or vibrate? does the van have tires on it ?start by switching the left rear with the right rear test drive and listen for soun if no sound then the tire has a bad steel belt replace tire if the sound is still present. jack up van and spin tire if no sound is heard replace wheel bearing and if there is still a sound look into brake drum for possible springs or clips that may have fallen into drum causing noise but i would say its more than likely the rear wheel bearing to change that u must buy a new bearing and follow instructions on replacing good
