Two possible problems come to mind, 1st is the problem a constant noise like a growel or heavy tire to pavement sound? If it is then it probably is a wheel bearing. Also check to make sure tire tread is smooth and not sharp or ruff. 2nd is the noise a knocking type sound if it is it maybe you outer constant vellocity joint. Last but not least if it is a high pitched squeel type of noise it could be your brake sensor in your brake pad indicating you from pads are getting close to worn out.

1997 jeep grand ch. has a clunking noise. when i turn the steering wheel. the noise sounds like a flat tire but louder.what could it be?


There is something wrong with one of your tires. Take it to a tire repair place soon before it leaves you stranded. My guess: a tire has a big lump on it which will blow soon.

Noise in front end when going straight or turning right. Noise stops when you turn left.


i would check the right front wheel bearing . Jack the right side up and feel the tire pull back and forth and see if the tire feels loose if it does the wheel bearing is junk. only other thing check the cvc axel.

Best guess sight unseen is feathered tires from poor alignment. Feel the inside edges of the tires by rubbing your hand in both directions. If it feel "choppy" it is you tires causing the noise. Try rotating the tires from front to back to see if the noise changes or goes away. If it does, replace the front tires and have the car aligned.

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.

I would start by checking your wheel bearings. Do this by pushing back and forth on the top of your tire or car near the tire. If the tire wobbles back and forth at all your hub assembly should be replaced. For this problem I would check for this first.

You probably have a bad hub bearing.If you can change the noise by slightly turning the vehicle one way or the other it is a hub bearing.If you turn left and the noise is still there then it is the right front bearing.If you turn right and the noise is still there it is the left side.If it makes the noise both ways it could be both front hubs.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Noise coming from front of car


It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps
