2005 F-150 sounds like front wheel bearing is bad. turn to the left and sound is bad. turn to the right and no noise


Looks like it's time for a right wheel bearing, or however many there are in the hub. I'm assuming you do not have a 4 wheel drive. Remember, if it makes noise when turning left, you are "loading" the right wheel bearing. ( Shifting more weight to the side inside your turn). Think this way. When turning left at a higher speed, the left tire might even come up off the ground! That puts all the weight on the right. If you've 4 wheel drive, could also be c.v. joints, or universal joints.

What does a damaged wheel baring sound like


A bad wheel bearing noise will normally increase or roar loader with car speed but depends on how bad it is. If you turn momentary to the left or right while driving down the road say above 30 mph, the noise will change pitch either gettin loader or quieter. Locating the correct bearing to change can be tricky because sometimes it may sound like the left bearing but it can be the right. The best thing to do is to jack the car up on jackstands and get the wheels spinning and while spinning prob the hub area on the back side of the wheel with a mechanics stethoscope to pick up the sound. Placing the plastic end of a long screw driver against the ear while probing the inner hub with the other end works equally well for locating bearing noise. Compare the noise heard while spinning and the noisy one is the bad bearing. Do not spin the wheels fast while on jack stands or it could cause damage to the halfshafts (cv joints). Spinning the back wheels with be hard to do since there is no poweer to them. If they are bad enough, they will still make noise while someone is spinning them by hand. Most shops have a device for spinning the wheels.

Whenever I drive I continue to hear a loud roaring noise. Is this wheel bearing problem or is it something else


Quite often it is a bad wheel bearing, a lot of chevy's are notorious for them. A wheel bearing will usually create a growling type noise that is more prominent at around 40-60MPH. If its a wheel bearing you should notice a change in pitch when turning in one direction, for example if you have a bad right side wheel bearing it will be noisy driving straight ahead, then get louder when turning LEFT. If you turn right the noise softens. The weight distribution of the front end will be greater on the right side when turning left. Of course the works in the opposite direction. If the noise remains constant going straight and turning it could be a bad tire. Visually check the tire for pressure and bulges in the side wall. You didn't mention what type or model vehicle you have, because in some cases the rear wheel bearing could be causing the noise.

Noises from axles can be really deceiving. The sound is transfered throuh the transaxle and can resonate through the entire vehicle. The turning to the left thing makes it sound like a problem in the right wheel/axle area. Wheel bearings and axles tend to make worse noise when they are on the OUTSIDE of the turn. More of the vehicle weight is shifted to the outside due to centrifugal force. Thus, if the noise is louder when turning left, this puts the right axle to the outside of the turn and the most likely to be the source of the noise. (and vise-versa) The fact that the noise calms down while cruising makes me believe that it is not a wheel bearing. Wheel bearings can make more noise in turns, however, they usually make a "roaring" or loud "humming" noise that gets louder with speed. An axle is more likely to change or get louder according to engine load more than rotational speed. (Way worse while accelerating or climbing a hill) I would be taking a hard look at the right axle.

Sounds like a bad hub bearing.If you sway from one side to another the noise should change.If you go left and the noise and the noise is still there then it`s the right side and if you turn right and the noise is still there it is the left side.You may also have both front hub bearings out.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Noisy sound coming from the wheel while driving . . .


If it's wheel bearings, they should get louder the faster you go. Also, if you have one going out, loading up the suspension on that side will make it louder. For instance, if you have a bad front left bearing, and you take a right-hand turn at speed on the highway, that will load the left side suspension since the car will roll to the left. The noise would get louder. Similarly, if you took a left turn, and the weight shifted off of the left side, the noise would go away.

Try jacking up the car and grabbing the wheel at the top and bottom and shaking it hard. If you get any play or looseness in the wheel, chances are the bearing is bad.
