Your rear wheel bearing(s) need to be replaced.

This sound is a humming that will go with the speed of the Chassis, not the speed of the motor.

You will hear the loudest hummmm at around 55mph, as that speed is where the most vibration is created by the friction in the hub/bearing/wheel.

Bearings are not too much, but they usually need to be pressed in, so find a good shop to help. :)

What can be possible problem be? at 10-15 mph very slight vibration in steering wheel and dosn't seem to roll right


Blister or broken steel braid in tire. Lug nut torqued properly? If you suspect tire, move it to the back and see if the noise/vibration migrates with it. The only other guess would be your wheel bearing is failing.

Spin that wheel by hand as fast as you can. If you can hear the noise coming from right behind the tire it's probably a wheel bearing.

When these warning lights come on it indicates that the system control module (computer) has detected a fault in the inputs to the module from the wheel speed sensors and other inputs, what you must have done now is have the module scanned for fault codes and based on the codes diagnosis and repair is done to correct the faults

When driving our 2001 montana, the noise gets really loud. Like a loud humming. What could be causing this noise? We had one wheel bearing replaced on the front left wheel which was a little loose, but...


"Loud humming" could describe many of the noises that your minivan may make. Let's start with the basics: do you hear the noise only when the van is in motion or also when the van is stopped? If you can hear the noise even when the van isn't moving, you're most likely looking at something in the engine compartment. Your serpentine belt and the alternator bearings (and, to a lesser likelihood, your power steering pump) are all sources of noise "in there." An A/C compressor on its last legs may also vibrate and cause a humming sound, though that's usually described as more of a "growl."

If you can only hear the noise when the car is in motion, the next question is whether it changes pitch/volume due to engine speed or due to road speed? For example, does the noise get quieter (momentarily, perhaps) when the transmission shifts gears? Or, does the noise simply get louder/change characteristics in a linear way as the van gets faster and/or slower?

Depending on the mileage on your van, the transmissions have been known to get quite noisy after a while, especially if you are doing sustained high-speed driving. The solution for that particular problem isn't cheap, as it involves replacing or rebuilding the transmission (the shift bands may be fine; the noise is caused by bearing wear, seal failure, and other sundry issues that still require pulling the transmission). A less expensive problem is that you might have a problem with one of your tires--a tire with separating belts may make a noise like this as it slowly tears itself apart. If you hit something hard with the undercarriage of the van, you might have a drive shaft that's slightly bent and hence is causing some sympathetic vibrations in the car because it's out of balance.

Depending on the cause, your humming sound may be one of those things that comes with driving an older car--or it may be a sign of the imminent failure of something serious. It's worth getting things checked out again to try to find the cause of the problem. You'll feel a lot better knowing what it is, even if it's something you choose not to fix.

Ring and pinion noise for sure,yes. Check for play right at the yoke where the drive shaft goes in.

2004 Chrysler Crossfire 25,000 mls auto, road hum noise


MOST of the hums after a while come from the diff as the back axle does the driving and almost all its life runs the same way except when going in reverse ,is the rear diff meshing and worn on both the crownwheel and the pinion and the humming gets slightly louder the faster you go and almost goes when almost stopped and this can also be the slight vibration you get so get the diff oil drained and refilled and check if there is any metal in the oil when drained if so thats your problem But it will last for years like that..Let me know how you get on RON

"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.

Rumblig and rattling sound ( sound like " DUK DUK DUK") on the steering wheel


First if the humming sound gets faster and slower as you go faster or slower yes I would say it is a wheel bearing.Second thing if you on the out side of the car rock the car side to side and hear the same noise have someone look at each sway bar link(the piece that attaches the bar to the suspension)to see for movement at each end of each link.the movment if found will let you know which one to replace.If no movment at the links check the ruber mounts that attatch the bar to the body or frame of the car for up and down movement.
