If it's a hub bearing, you can jack the car up and check for play in the hub bearing by moving the tire back and forth and in and out. Any looseness at all means a worn hub bearing.

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

2005 chevy tahoe has a terrible roar coming from the rear differential. The roar becomes an unbearable whine at 45 mph. Any ideas what is causing this problem?


roar fron the rear end indicates the pinion is not meshing with the crown , most probably bad bearings, disconnect the drive shaft and rock the yoke or turn it slow you will feel the roughness, the only fix is replacement of the rear end

I replaced all four tires on the truck and there is still a roaring sound on the back or middle of the truck it sound like a little go- cart or the muffler has a hole in it, I do not know.


Check your muffler of course, but also check the fluid level in the rear differential, the bearings on both sides of the rear tires and the U-joints. If you only have 2 wheel front wheel drive check the bearings on both rear tires.

I have a roaring sound coming from the front end of my f150


sounds like the cooling fan clutch to me, look under the hood next time you hear it, will be easy to confirm if that is the noise.

Roaring sound when driving


Needs a wheel bearing, or the differential rebuilt. most likely the diff, but could be bearing.

Front End Problems


first i would check the tires , are they cupped or chopped on the tread? run your hand over the tread and see if it feels rough and uneven. take the truck to a auto repair shop and have them jack both front and rear axles off the ground, put the truck in 2 wheel drive and run the speedometer to the speed you usually hear the roaring noise, if you don't hear the noise , put the truck in 4 wheel drive, turn off the traction assist if it has one and run it to the speed you would hear the noise. if you hear the roaring noise with tires off the ground, the problem is in the drivetrain, (engine, transmission, transfer case, u-joints, differentials or the front left or right cv halfshafts or u-joints). the older models (97 98) had the front two driveshafts from the differential turning all the time, they engaged in 4 wheel drive from the transfer case and a solenoid on the front differential. depending on the miles you have on this truck, the most likely areas i would look at would be the tires, u-joints/cv joints, and front and rear wheel bearings. thanks and good luck.

Right rear is making a sound of medal scraping medal. I believe it maybe the wheel bearings.


If it's a scraping sound, when does it happen? If it's when you hit the brakes, then it's likely your rear brake pads/shoes are down to the metal and are scraping. This can happen when you're not hitting the brakes, however. Bad wheel bearings are usually a moaning/roaring sound that increases as road speed increases. Ditto that for differential bearings - if they go out, you usually get a roaring noise that increases the faster you go.
