Question about 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier

1 Answer

1999 Chevy Cavalier Trying to get this ready for my kid to go back to college. Recently replaced both front tires, brakes, drivers wheel bearing and exhaust leak. The car makes a lot of road noise while driving. I do not believe it is exhaust, if cruising say at 55 put it in neutral the noise remains the same. Engine RPM doe not effect the noise. While cruising a long right hand turn will quiet the tone to almost normal left hand turns remains the same. Both front struts probally need replacing since it is a little rough over bumps. The previous tires were worn uneven toe in condition. No alignment was done. Could this be an alignment problem it is pretty loud? What else should I be looking at?

    My problem ended up being the passenger side wheel bearing. I was told to replace both when I replaced the other but didn't. Anyway if your noise lessens when turning left I would say it is the drivers side wheel bearing.

I have the same thing going on with my 2002 cavalier. I replaced wheel bearings with no luck. My tires also wore uneven toe. Going to try alignment. I'm sure it's the same problem as you describe and it's really annoying. Right hand turns remains the same but long left turns will quite the howling. If you find a solution to this.... let me know

Grinding noise around front wheel hub on Chevy cavalier


I would guess it is your wheel hub, but if it occurs while the car is on and not moving, it might be your a/c compressor. When they go out they make a terrible grinding noise.

Weird vibration, unable to figure out


I would have the front wheel bearing adjustment checked first as if they are loose the rotor will be rubbing on the pads and the vibration will be wheel wobbling on the loose bearings Unless you replaced the bearings with new ones then they will fail especially if the adjustment was too tight and too much grease was used.

If steering wheel shakes bad tire on front. If whole car shakes bad tire on rear. Or tires could be out of balance. If steering wheel shakes when brakes applied, front rotors are warped.

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

1998 chevy cavalier 2.2l wheel noise


usually if noise is made when turning right it would be the right wheel bearing easiest way to check would be to lift the car off the ground on that side until tire clears the ground and spin the wheel to see if it makes noise also try grabbing the wheel on the top and bottom at the same time and see if you can move the wheel back and forth checking for slack.

Rumbling & grinding under front end


Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

How to put front breaks on a 1999 chevy automatic cavalier


Place the bike on a stand, disconnect the cable, remove the wheel, set the wheel brake side up, use the bolt slightly inserted in the drum, or two oposing screw drivers around the drum to pull it from the wheel. Once pulled, remove the springs and shoes,lightly sand the inner drum on the wheel, install new pads and springs, spray both drums with brake clean, reassemble drums and wheel, install the wheel, and then adjust cable tension and brake pressure at first the wheel, and then at the bars. Test and readjust as needed.
