Weird Sound while in motion

My 2001 corolla LE makes a low growl when I drive over 40 mph. The sound seems to come from the center or rear of the car. The car has about 73,000 miles on it.

Hi,

To my knowledge, the only possible source of any growl (noise) underneath the car towards the center or rear would be the exhaust pipe after the converter before the muffler. Often they use rubber dougnuts as hanger support. A loose or broken support would significantly misalign thie exhaust pipe enough to cause vibration or wind induced noise.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

WHY DOES LINCOLN MKX MAKES ROARING SOUND BETWEEN 40-75 MPH


Things to check (in order of likelihood):
  1. Fluid level and condition in rear differential;
  2. Drive shaft center bearing;
  3. Rear outer bearings;
  4. Front bearings (have they been packed with grease in the past three years?);
  5. U-Joints
  6. Tires (separating tread, flat spots, etc.)

When I pass 25 - 30 mph my car suddenly sounds like an airplane. It makes no sound when at a stop, only when in motion going past 30. at times it feels like it may be vibrating.


Hi, sounds like a bad wheel bearing, possible tire noise, if you can identify or narrow down which end of the car (front or rear) its coming from you can rotate your tires(front to back) and test drive and see if the sound moves to opposite end now. If not you can use a stethoscope or long screw drivers and spin each wheel by hand (vehicle not running!) and listen for a humming grinding sound while tires are off ground via a lift or jack.

I have a 1996 S10 2.2 litre, and I am experiencing a noticable vibration in between 20-25 mph and around 40 mph, I already changed the u joints, i'm not sure if its my rotors, or what. I do have a bad O2...


The O2 sensor answers the idle problem. The vibration could be motor mounts, bushings in the sway bar or even tie rod ends or a bad strut. If the vibration is only there when moving it's not the motor mounts but the rest are still suspect.

2001 Corolla LE Brakes are not strong


Could be many things to look at. 2001 Corolla, assume disc pads in front, and regular drum style brakes in rear. Generally, most of your braking will come from the front disc brakes, and no adjustment is provided in these. Rear drum brakes can be adjusted two ways. Manually, they are adjusted by accessing the adjustment "cog" or threaded rod via a slot in the back of the plate that the drum fits up against. This should be done when the brakes shoes are first installed. As an alternative, the brakes will automatically adjust when you apply the brakes while backing up. I'd suggest that you find a big old empty parking lot, without a lot of light poles to hit, and place car in reverse, get going about 5 MPH, then hit the brakes firmly to stop. Repeat this a dozen times and see what results you get.

I am, of course, assuming that the brake fluid level is good and you see no leaks from either the front calipers or the rear brake cylinders.

2001 Toyota Corolla LE 4 door rear axle noise I believe


First thing I would do is to get a chassis lube job. Many places that do oil changes will also do a chassis lube for you at the same time. The axle bearings can get dry and do require lubrication. If left to long without a lube job, pits can form inside the bearing and will require replacement.
