Noisy rear bearing?

I have a rear wheel drive previa and notice a noise from the rear of the van. It sounds like a noisy bearing .Could it be a bad rear end .The noise is pronounced at low speed but I can hear it on the highway. Could it be a noisy wheel bearing, or bad rear end. What would be a fair cost for these repaind ? would I have to take it to a toyota dealer or find a shop that works on rear ends?

Is isnt the rear end it would be very bad shaking and wouldnt last long because it would throw a bearing out. So its most likly the wheel bearing and you can just take it to a local automotive shop.

Rincon. Why is there grinding noise in rear end and rear wheels will not drive?


Could be bad u-joints, wheel bearings. Raise rear of vehicle and rotate wheel by hand, if noisy remove and replace. Hope that helps.

Whenever I drive I continue to hear a loud roaring noise. Is this wheel bearing problem or is it something else


Quite often it is a bad wheel bearing, a lot of chevy's are notorious for them. A wheel bearing will usually create a growling type noise that is more prominent at around 40-60MPH. If its a wheel bearing you should notice a change in pitch when turning in one direction, for example if you have a bad right side wheel bearing it will be noisy driving straight ahead, then get louder when turning LEFT. If you turn right the noise softens. The weight distribution of the front end will be greater on the right side when turning left. Of course the works in the opposite direction. If the noise remains constant going straight and turning it could be a bad tire. Visually check the tire for pressure and bulges in the side wall. You didn't mention what type or model vehicle you have, because in some cases the rear wheel bearing could be causing the noise.

Humming sound coming from rear of car when driving


Only when moving? Does pitch change with speed of vehicle?
Generally a humming sound from rear is a fuel pump warning you that it is getting near the end of its service life. You usually notice that more, however, when the car sitting still running and you walk around the rear of the car.
Wheel bearings can make a variety of different sounds, mostly noticed in the first half mile of driving. A "whomp whomp whomp" pulsing sound is the most definitive wheel bearing sound.
Slotted or drilled brake rotors can make a humming sound, but I doubt anyone put those on a '94 5 Series. Worn tires can get pretty noisy, but you would have figured that out if it were the problem.

I just got the van and the back of the van sounds like some thing is rubbing ,but only when i am driving, what does that sound like to you?


A few things might cause this so lets gets some facts from you first. I will give you a few things to try.

1. Does the noise kinda fade when you apply the brake?
1.b If so..Its time for a brake job.

2. Look and feel all the way around the rear tires for an obstacle.
2.b If something is felt that's you rub.

3. Grab the rear tires and the top. Put your hands at 10 and 2 like you would hold the steering wheel. With force shake the tire in and out, if slop is felt...rear wheel bearings might be the issue.

This should point you in the right direction. Please comment back if further assistance is needed. Hope this helped :)

Rear wheel


does the van shake or vibrate? does the van have tires on it ?start by switching the left rear with the right rear test drive and listen for soun if no sound then the tire has a bad steel belt replace tire if the sound is still present. jack up van and spin tire if no sound is heard replace wheel bearing and if there is still a sound look into brake drum for possible springs or clips that may have fallen into drum causing noise but i would say its more than likely the rear wheel bearing to change that u must buy a new bearing and follow instructions on replacing good
