Question about 2002 Kia Spectra

2 Answers

Roaring Noise I believe the car has 2 noises taking place but it might be only 1. As the car nears 60mph, the 1 roaring noise resonates thru the whole vehicle as heard from the drivers seat. As you exceed 60mph it seems to become a little less noisy. 2nd noise seems to be in the right rear when sitting in the rear. Replaced left rear bearing assembly not long ago because I thought the left was roaring as the car did a left curve and the weight placed pressure on the bearing toward the outside. Tires are relatively new. Any ideas???

Most likely if it is a wheel bearing you can walk around the car and lay your hand on the each wheel, the wheel that is the hottest is the problemed wheel. it might also be a sticking break but there shouldn't be much noise from that.
but a sticking break will make heat. keep in mind that kias are famous for noise.

thanks

Roaring noise from rear is a classic symptom of a rear wheel bearing beginning to fail. The noise is amplified thru the body and make an awful racket. The trick is figuring out which one is failing. Your mechanic may recommend replacing both sides if the vehicles mileage warrants it.

Rear end on f-350 makes roaring noise. I checked oil level and it was ok. The oil seems to be very thin. Could wrong oil cause rear end noise?


Differential roaring noise is usually caused by a bearing that is worn or has pitting in the bearing race (half of bearing without rollers). A whining noise would be caused by worn ring and pinion gears. the roaring could be from the carrier bearings (two bearings holding the differential case to the axle housing) or fron the pinion bearings. The fluid is typically heavier but will seem thin when hot. The fluid isn't the causing of the noise but if the wrong fluid is in the differntial it could have caused the bearing to go bad which then causes the noise. good luck.

I own a 06 chevrolet 4wd. it makes an awful roaring noise


There is a bearing, somehwere that is the most likely cause.

Does anything alter the sound, accelleration, decell, moderate turning (thinking to unload one side and load the other side of the vehicle)?

My vote would be for a bearing, and they are hard to tell until you tear the offending bearing apart...
