2003 Rav 4 - Roaring in the rear

I have a 2003 Rav 4 and have not had any trouble with it. However, I have noticed a loud roaring noise coming from the rear. It seems to get louder the faster I go. Anyone know what this could be?

A loud "roaring" noise as you describe it could very likely be a bearing going out.

After I turn off my car, there is a loud sound like a motor running under the car. Is this from the compressor for the air suspension? I also get a roaring noise when I am driving that comes from the rear...


Then noise you hear after shutting off the car very well might be the air suspension compressor. The air ride system is still activated for a half hour after the vehicle has been shut off. The roaring noise from the rear could be a bad bearing. The rear axle seals don't always leak when a bearing goes out. So it's not a conclusive indication that they are good just because the seals aren't leaking. If your mechanic isn't too versed in differentials it may be advisable to seek an opinion of a reputable transmission shop (however, that may be a difficult task).

What would cause a loud roaring in the back seat of my 2001 Monte Carlo as I am driving?


That roaring noise should be a wheel bearing. Jack up the rear wheels and spin the tires by hand. You can hear a grinding noise if the noise inside the car is as load as you state.. The only other noise that will be like that is the differental gears inside the drive axle

Makes a low roaring noise when you are at crusing speed.


One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.
