Whirring noise in the front-end of a 2000 Cirrus

I have a 2000 Cirrus with about 93K miles and lately it has developed a whirring noise in the front-end that increases in volume as the car goes faster. At first it sounded like a noisy tire but then I realized that the steering was becoming increasingly sloppy. I've also notice that the noise increases on left turns and goes away completely on right turns. To add to this, when the car is cold, cranking the wheel hard causes some binding. This binding seems to go away after a few miles on the road. My thoughts are CV joint but could this be a wheel bearing too? whinning in front wheel

It does sound like wheel bearing a cv joint dont make noise and then stop but you can jack the car up and in neutral try to shake the tire from side to side.to see if you have any play then turn the wheel by hand try to feel for roughness in bearing. let me know what you find. Phil.

Low pitch whirring sound coming from front end when above 30 mph


It could be that you have a front wheel bearing that is getting noisy. Have someone ride in the RF seat and listen to the noise to try to figure out which front wheel the noise is coming from.
Also , check the tread pattern of the front tires to see if it has some unusual choppy pattern forming.

My 2002 SC2 is making loud, whirring, almost clunking noise front right when I step on brakes, slow down, or turn. Just had front ends replace and that didn't fix the problem. What else could it be?


a whirring noise is most likley a wheel bearing. The fact that you can make it louder by placing more weight on the that side by turning confirms this. Not sure what you mean by having the front end replaced since this term doesnt apply to this condition.

My 2000 Explorer makes a whirring sound when you accelerate - can this noise be due to a bent tierod? The previous owner had an accident involving the front end and was told that the tierod was haywire?


Typcially tie rods will only make a clunking noise or a squeak. The whirring sound if would suspect to be a wheel bearing. When you drive, slowly turn from left to right, if the pitch changes than its the bearing.

Whirring noise from the front of car as you drive.


I would first rule out the possibility of a "rough" tire making the noise. You can move the two front tires to the rear of the vehicle and see if that changes the noise any. If it does, you might have a worn tire that needs replacing or a tire that has worn unevenly and should be rotated and balanced more often....

Good luck..
