Question about 2002 Toyota Camry

1 Answer

It sound like a humming sound in the fron wheels. It starts low and goes up until you hear the humming sound. Just replaced the tores and they are new. When I accelarate you can hear the humming witout a doubt after 35 miles. When driving and I am stearing to the sides you can hear it more. What could this be? I have hear that I may need to replace the wheel bearings. Is that truth? What could this possibly be? Please help,

Hi:
Often, that sort of humming is a wheel bearing. Since you have newer tires, and the noise gets louder when you steer, it could also be your CV joints, but the wheel bearing is the most likely suspect.

    Yes, It would be a wheel bearing that would need to be replaced. It is a pain to deal with it, but it can be driving on for sometime without replacement. I just had to replace mine in my mazda and I drove with them sounding like that for almost a month.

Could be another wheel bearing. You can jack up each wheel and rotate it to see if there is a difference in other wheels.

I had a noise like that in my Acura. Turned out to be low on transmission oil.

Bmw 335I Problems Humming in car. Goes away when


First thing I'd check is the power steering fluid level. If it's low, add until it's at the proper full level as indicated on the cap/dipstick for the pump's reservoir. A low level can cause a humming or slight grinding sound. If it's full, you could have a rack-and-pinion problem, a wheel bearing problem, or even a tire problem. Good luck.

it sounds to me like it is your left front wheel bearing. the best way to check this is to raise both wheels and spin them by hand there will be some noise from the pads rubbing the discs but the side with the bearing gone will be noisiest.you can replace just the bearing.I hope you find this helpful

BEARING NOISE IN FRONT END RT SIDE DODGE SUV DORANGO COULD IT BE CV JOINTS OR BEARING IN FRONT HUMS


Most likely it is the RH front wheel bearings. CV Joints don't usually make any noise until you turn a rather sharp corner. I would advise you to replace the bearings and seals in both front wheels if the bearings are in fact noisy. Jack up the front and spin each wheel, you'll soon hear the sound of rumbling bearings.

There is a humming sound coming from the front end of my 1999 oldmobile alero. Only happens when the car is moving. I dont hear itat idle or even when pushing the gas at idle. could it be my transmission...


Hello! If the humming noise is speed related(gets louder as vehicle speed increases)check front wheel bearings. If the noise goes away when turning one way or the other then it will most likely be in the front wheel bearing. If you turn the wheel(while moving)to the right and the noise goes away it is on the right side. If you turn the wheel to the left and the noise goes away its on the left side. Hope this information helps!

it could also mean a low fluid problem. I'd check that first.
