Identify cause of right rear wheel stuttering in turns (either direction) at low speed. No unusual noise.


Is your car a rear wheel drive? If so, the limited slip differential grease is low...if front wheel drive could be right rear strut/shock assembly is totally worn out...wheel bearing maybe, but usually makes a grinding noise...does applying the brakes affect this stuttering? Should be a free inspection at most quality repair shops...good that you notice this before it gets worse...

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.

2006 Chevy equinox transmission. Making a dull whirring noise in 4th & 5th gear.automatic 5 speed transmission.On a 2006 Chevy Equinox.


It could a wheel bearing. See if the noise gets louder at higher speeds. If it does trying jiggling the steering wheel (in a safe manner) from left to right and see if the noise gets higher or lower. If it does then you have a front wheel bearing that is bad. If not then if could be a rear wheel bearing. If none of these apply to you then try checking your transmission fluid level and fluid condition. It is posible you could have an internal transmission issues. The fluid should be bright red. If brown or black I would consider taking it to a transmission shop to it further looked into.

2004 Maxima. God awful noise and banging and electric whirring sound when I press the brake pedal. We replaced the rotors and brakes, but noise is still there. What could it be?


remove rear wheel speed sensors and look for marks where rear hub has rubbed against sensor causing an erroneous wheel speed signal due to corosion.nissan has tech bulletin for this incident.

I have a whirring or griding in my drivetrain. I can coast donw a hill and let the engine idle and I still get the noise. It doesn't sound any different going around corners and gets louder as the speed...


this sounds like(no pun intended) you have a wheel hub bearing assembly failing. they will start a whirring or humming noise and then a growling or grinding noise the worse they get. from your description it is a rotational noise and gets louder and maybe a higher pitch as the vehicle speed increases. have this checked out right away so no further damage is done. they are not cheap assemblies as most GM and Saturn vehicles have the ABS sensor built into them(if your Vue has ABS).

How to identify source of rumbling noise when car is moving.


My daughter has a 2001 Focus with similar sound, problem.  Just drove it from Portland Oregon to Newport Oregon approx. 140 miles.  Hwy. 20 the route from I-5 to the coast has some pretty sharp corners.  There was this knot head behind me tailgating.  So,coming into the sharp corners I decided to accelerate hard through the corners to gain some distance away from the guy.  Well guess what?  45-50 mph into a 25 mph right hand corner and the noise totally stopped for a few seconds.  I did this again and the same thing...no noise! So, on the next left hand corner I powered into it. The noise increased.  I had the back seats down as well, carting a surf board, which allowed the noise level to be established that it was from the rear of the car.  With the seats up it was impossible to tell where the noise was coming from; But down clearly from the rear.  Now, going through those sharp corners, the right hand corner throws weight to the left front wheel and the right rear tire tends to lift releasing weight pressure on the bearing resulting in the no noise event.  Thus I am absolutely convinced that it is a bearing failure in the passenger side rear wheel. Quit by accident to have stumbled onto this today...amazing!  Now, Looking for directions on how to replace the bearing which is how I stumbled onto this post.  Have a good one!!!

2006 elantra whirring noise while driving


if you are sure its right rear of car, jack up car so the right rear is off the gound, grasp the spring with you hand, and with your other hand, spin the wheel, if you feel any roughness , your wheel bearing is bad and will need replacement.
