Question about 2004 Oldsmobile Alero

1 Answer

I have a 2004 Alero that has a rolling noise that starts at about 18 mph and increases in pitch as car picks up speed I have already replaced the driver side hub and drive axle due to the noise sounding like it came from that side. Could the noise be from the passenger side? Could the hub be bad even though it feels tight and appears to roll freely with no apparent rough spots?

Repetitive thumping/growling noise from front right wheel area. Brakes are okay. Noise starts as soon as I start driving. Any ideas?


If the pitch increases with speed it would probably be a wheel bearing. Don't leave it too long as it will cause big problems if it lets go.

Car makes a low pitch sound starting at 30mph & getting louder as speed increases. 1999 Buick Park Avenue Ultra w/ 3.8liter.


Check for uneven tire wear, make sure the wheels are properly balanced, check for proper tire inflation.
Low pitched noise that increases with speed is related to tires, wheel bearings, etc. Start with the easy and cheap remedies first... tire inflation, wear etc.

2004 Chrysler Crossfire 25,000 mls auto, road hum noise


MOST of the hums after a while come from the diff as the back axle does the driving and almost all its life runs the same way except when going in reverse ,is the rear diff meshing and worn on both the crownwheel and the pinion and the humming gets slightly louder the faster you go and almost goes when almost stopped and this can also be the slight vibration you get so get the diff oil drained and refilled and check if there is any metal in the oil when drained if so thats your problem But it will last for years like that..Let me know how you get on RON

Low level growling noise at rt. front wheel increases with speed. No change if in or out of gear. Can start hearing noise begining about 38 mph. very slight vibration Car has 77,000 miles and is well...


first rotate the tires see if there is a change. If that does not have a desirable effect there may be a worn wheel bearing,take note if the sound or vibration gets louder as you turn a corner, try left turns as well as right turns if the noise increases it is a wheel bearing.

Humming noise starting @ 35MPH with increasing tone as speed excells or declines. Very faint vibration can be felt in the steering wheel.


Check the wheel bearings. Does the pitch of the noise change as you weave the wheel back and forth at 35?
