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.

I have a 2002 dodgr ram 1500 2 wheel dr,how can I tell if my front wheel bearing is going bad?


Is it a one piece wheel hub bearing?

If it has 120,000 on it-- change both sides

The bearing & race type, you take apart & wash
off & look at for wear & markings & replace or
grease & return to service

If you hear a noise from 25 to 40 mph
On a rear drive car, you can remove the
brake rotor & feel the worn bearing --sometimes

You may be able to do that

I would just put the bearings on your Preventative
Maintenance list for 100,000 plus & change them
when you get there

Your Oxygen Sensors go at 100,000

Spark Plugs every 3 years & so on

I don't wait on failure,only as a learning tool,
then those items get added to my list

A huming noise from drivers front wheel I turn left and it quiets down could it be the wheel bearings?


Wheel bearings don't hum. How about a traction control or anti break lock system malfunction? Or maybe something in your powersteering system

I need help with a strange throbbing noise coming from my 2006 cobalt ss. The noise is coming from the passenger side and sounds like either a warped rotor, tire out of balance, or a wheel bearing going...


We can rule out the tire and rim since it blanced with no issues and I'm assuming no wobble was found during the balancing procedure. Rotors were turned, so we can factor this out also. The only component that can not be ruled out is the bearing, it seems fine, but we need to know that it is fine. Has the vehicle been jacked up and supported, placed in gear to see if the noise happens when the wheels are not touching the ground?

2006 ford explorer has a noise that you would swear it was a L/F wheel brg changed it and noise still the same took the old L/F brg and put it on the R/F still same noise??? any thoughts???


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____.

My 1998 Chevrolet c1500 4x2 5.7 v8 left front wheel makes, what could be the problem. I just had a watepump replaced a few days ago, could this have anything to do with the wheel or brake getting too hot?


No, the water-pump would not effect the wheels. I am going to assume it is a noise that the front left wheel makes, and here are some common causes:
  • Bearings
  • Brake pads
  • Suspension
  • tire rub
  • loose lug
Do these noises occur constantly during the drive? (This is most likely a bearing)
Only while braking? (Break pads)
When hitting rough roads? (Suspension_

Yes it could be the wheel bearing. After stopping, see if the wheel itself is hot to the touch (like burn your hand hot) if so, take it to the shop right away...unless you plan to change out the wheel bearings yourself.
