    my moms car has a deep rumbleing noise from the back between 1800rpm and 2000rpm please help

  • alpalm82 May 13, 2009

    I hear similiar sounds from my X3. I can't quite place it but there is some faint rumbling noise coming from the back. When I'm driving I think it sounds like its coming from the back passinger side and when my husband is riding he thinks its coming from my side. It comes and goes but seems to happen when I am accelerating in between gears. I took it to the dealer to see if they could find anything and they said they couldnt find anything wrong. They even rode with me to try to hear the same noise and of course I couldn't get my car to make the same noise. I also recently noiced that the car is making louder rumbling noises when I back up and when I am just driving straight. Please help! It's driving me crazy! literally!

Do you hear some faint rumbling or moaning while going straight? Do you hear it louder in a right turn than a left (or vice versa)? If so, you likely have a wheel bearing problem. Let me know when/where you hear the noise, and we should be able to localize it.

It sounds like you have a rock or something stuck in the tread of one of your tires. Take a look and see if you find anything, then dig it out with a key. If it looks like something punctured the tire (it could be a nail in the tire) don't take it out (the tire will deflate) , take it to a tire shop and get it fixed.

Hi. I would suggest having the transfer case motor actuator checked for a stripped gear. I usually remove the transfer motor actuator and take the cover off to inspect the plastic gear inside. If the gear is stripped, it can be replaced.

rumbling can mean a whole bunch of things,, my guess would be that your hearing a throw out bearing going out , thats the part that allows the clutch plate and disc to come together to let the car engage, if it goes out completely ,, the clutch could be in gear and not able to release,
