    It started off as a little rumbling like the muffler needed to be replaced but it was coming from the engine area. Over the course of a few months it has become louder and it doesn't have the same pick up as before.

Its a cheap car, it lets in more road noise than a better car would.

Could be a number of things...
1) Tires may be mis-aligned or unballanced (likely)
2)Transmision issue (unlikely)
3) Wheel bearing may be gone (unlikely)

Without a better description of the 'real loud rumble' and where it may be coming from, its hard to help more than whats listed above. Best of luck!

1999 Lexus RX300 left rear wheel has a rumbling noise sounds like cv joint or bearing its all wheel drive.


Spin that wheel by hand as fast as you can. If you can hear the noise coming from right behind the tire it's probably a wheel bearing.

There is a loud noise at 45mph.


Find a quiet empty stretch of road. Go 50 mph, put the trans in NEUTRAL and shut the engine. If noise is still there, swing car left and right to detect noise differences. Could be hub or axle bearings. Not engine or trans if noise is still there. Hope this helps

Would noise be wheel bearing


Yes it could be but to be sure, i would jack the car up and pull and push on the tire and see if it moves at all.

98 Chevy Lumina has front end noise (rumble) from 10 mph and above. It gets increasingly louder as you accelerate. It does not change by coasting or applying the brakes. Also does it in reverse but not...


I may be a wheel bearing. Try shifting the weight of the car on the front tires by turning the wheelslightly while driving about 30 MPH. Don't turn enough to change lanes, just enough to put the load on the outside bearing. It may quiet down in one direction. The failed bearing is generally the side that you turned to in order to make the noise go away. Say the noise goes away when you steer to the right, the failed bearing is usually the right one.

You can also check for play by jacking up the car and shaking the tire. There should be no play.
