Question about 1997 Hyundai Accent
After driving a few miles the passanger side front wheel is ao hot you can't touch it.Does not pull or make any noise. Not sure what problem is
Could be a wheel bearing that is starting to have trouble - you won't always hear it right as soon as it starts to fail. If it is a wheel bearing though, very soon you'll start to notice a rumbling noise.

When checking to make sure noise is wheel bearings while driving vehicle at speed the noise is loudest (if possible) turn steering wheel back and forth enough to shift the weight of the vehicle from side to side and if it's a wheel bearing there should be quite a bit of difference in the noise.
If about the same noise check the wear pattern on the tires for flat spots or unusual wear pattern if there is rotate tires. If nothing still found jack up vehicle with all 4 tires of the ground. Use jack stands for this. Get some one in vehicle to run it at speed the noise develops, I use a long screw driver (2 feet long) as a stethoscope to find where noises come from. Try with and without 4 wheel drive if possible. Good luck cause noises can be a real pain in the b____.
