    Oxygen sensors do not 'ROAR" WHO TOLD YOU THEY DID??

    Only moving parts "roar" like wheel bearings and other engine related components.

  • tmcdowell273 Mar 25, 2011

    that was just some of the things that I was told I need to get fixed on my rav4. Could brake rotors and pads cause this noise.

    The noise would only be present when you apply the brakes, have them inspected ASAP. It is likely you have a defective wheel bearing that will really roar.

When driving my 2000 Olds Bravada, it has a loud roar noise that sounds like when a semi truck is taking off before the gears are shifted. Transmission shifts easily into gears, just this loud roar noise...


If there's a loud roaring noise all the time, then your muffler probably has a hole in it, time to get a new full or partial exhaust pipe.

If the noise goes when it changes gear, then you've probably got a gear box or thrust bearing problem.

A loud "roaring" noise as you describe it could very likely be a bearing going out.

What would cause a loud roaring in the back seat of my 2001 Monte Carlo as I am driving?


That roaring noise should be a wheel bearing. Jack up the rear wheels and spin the tires by hand. You can hear a grinding noise if the noise inside the car is as load as you state.. The only other noise that will be like that is the differental gears inside the drive axle

Try replacing the front end wheel baring(s) If it is a roar that you can hear resonating from the windows, this is most likely it.

Front drive train or axles?


Welcome to fixya

could be one of those but lets hope not it could also be the front bearings if it is the bearings it runs around 300 to fix if it is drive train or axles your talking a lot more money

OH check the break pads just thought of that if the pads are low it will make a noise to pull wheels off and check breaks first

hope this helps you out have a good day :)
