Question about Toyota Camry

2 Answers

My 2001 Camry makes a humming noise in the cabin which it never made before. I don't know what it is, but was told that it is a bearing that needs to be replaced (it is a sealed bearing, so it must be replaced instead of re-lubricated). However, there has been no difference on the sound inside and now I am being told it is another bearing? Could it be something else? How to bearings wear? What if I get that one fixed too and my car is still not quiet?

if it is a rear wheel bearing the driver won't hear it as much as a front wheel bearing.
If the bearing seizes at speed in the rear of the car you can damage the rear axle . I have seen the damage done when at my mechanics on someone else's car that was in for repair.
If it is a front wheel and it seizes you will crash as your car veers to one side. It takes a while for a wheel to seize but the longer you drive on a worn bearing the more risk you take of this occurring.
does the noise vary with different speeds ?
how are the tyres are they worn on the inside edges ?
how are the tyre pressures are they pumped up correctly to 32 psi ?

SOURCE: Alero loud humming/roaring sound coming from front end.

That's indicative of a wheel bearing, which is why you were told to change that out. However, it's also possible that the carrier bearings in the differential (where the drive axles attach) have gone bad. That happened to me on my 300ZX several years ago, and I had to replace the diff bearings. I would have them checked out somewhere other than a dealer (you'll probably get a better price from an independent shop).

As a sidenote, to be sure it wasn't a wheel bearing, if you hear it quiet down in a turn one way but get louder in a turn the opposite way, it's likely the wheel bearing. If you turn left at speed and it gets louder, then it's the right bearing (since you're loading up that side of the car). If it gets quieter in a right turn, it's the right side (you're unloading that side of the car and not putting as much weight on it, so it doesn't drag as badly). See if you get that symptom just to be sure that the wrong side front wheel bearing wasn't changed.

SOURCE: "Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

Does it make a noise when in 4x4 only? Does it make the noise in 2WD as well? A humming noise is usually associated with a wheel bearing noise. If while driving you steer from side to side and the noise changes pitch or becomes less/more severe it is most likely a wheel bearing. You can raise the vehicle and safely support it. Grab top and bottom of the wheel and feel for play.

Humming sound in cabin


It is very likely you hear the electric fuel pump in the fuel tank. If the noise is very low then don't concern yourself over it it is normal to some degree.. If it is really loud the pump bearing is failing.

When excellerate I can hear a humming noise until I reach a certain speed or release the excellerator


It sounds like you may have a wheel bearing going out. If you can try to isolate the noise it will help. We are starting to see the wheel bearings go out on these models. It could be front or rear. If you need any more help or need hel locating the parts please let me know.

Loud humming noise from drivers side front end changed hub assembly still have noise ????????????????


humming noise usually comes from wheel bearings. did you change that with a new bearing? also choppy or worn tires can cause humming noise that sounds like bad wheel bearings. rotate your tires and see if the noise changes. if so its tires. also even if it sounds like its from the right it could very well be a bad bearing in another location.

My camry is making a loud whining noise. I took it to a mechanic and he said it was probably the front bearings. The noise only happens when the wheels are spining. My question is how do I replace these....


Hi there. Most, if not all front wheel bearings these days are pressed into the front wheel hub assembly and to replace these is not normally a DIY job. Because new bearings need to be pressed into the hub assembly, a machine shop press ought to be used and the job undertaken by competent individuals. My advice if you do intend undertaking the work yourself is to remove the hub assembly and then have a machine shop operative remove the old bearings and have the new bearings pressed-in for you. Hope this helps, Scottech.
