SOURCE: Noise coming from rear hub after replacing various fluids

Once you add fluid to the rear differential, you should drive a short distance in forward and reverse. Then take out the fill bolt and add VTM-4 fluid to fill it again. It will take more fluid since driving it a short distance helps the fluid move into the rear end. The noise is probably due to not enough fluid. The fill procedure is fill it once, drive it, fill it again.

My 2006 Fatboy front end vibrates above 60mph


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non standard equipment on the front end such asheavy radio receivers, extra lightning equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tire(s) or improper front-rear tire combination
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. Shock absorber not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing play.
9. Improper vehicle alignment.
10.Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires out of round or eccentric with hub.
13. Rims and tires out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft nut improperly tightened or assembled.
Good luck and have nice day

Loose transmission oil after starter change


Your tires might be the cause of everything. They are either worn out on the hub or you are using wrong ones. They can as well be wrongly fitted which is usually the case with wrongly fixed Dual Sport Tires

Rear wheel bearing 2002 toyota hihlander


On front wheel drive models, the rear hub bearing is an assembly that bolts to the spindle.
Not sure about AllWheelDrive models.

Had R/F wheel hub/bearings replaced due to the loud noise it was making. The mechanic said bearing were shot however could still hear a small noise towards left front. He put new hub/bearing on left front...


u joints dont make a whine type noise. could it be tires? rotate tires and see if noise changes. did he hear the noise with the truck in the air? could be the front diff. with a 2006 explorer I would not have put the old bearing back in, its going to need it anyhow, sooner or later.

FRONT WHEEL BEARING NOISY


Most likely it is a Hub bearing worn out. If you have access to a highway with a sweeping curve the outside tire turns faster than the inside tire following the curve. So if the noise increases on a left curve, the right side is bad. If the noise increases on a right curve, the left bearing is bad.

You did not state whether you have 4 wheel drive or 2 wheel drive.
The 4 wheel drives have the Hub bearing. Check around for parts prices. The price can vary by $100 from store to store. If you have the 2 Wheel version it is much cheaper to replace and you will need a wheel bearing seal.

Do spend a little time checking the other components in a 4x4 as the additional components can also make noise.

I have a 1993 Volvo I purchased new almost 17


Could be tire noise, could be rear wheel bearing, differential (if rear wheel driven), or could be something associated with the brake.

Try swapping the tire with another tire. If the noise moves with the tire, it's the tire. If it stays, it's brakes (unlikely for the noise you mention), rear wheel bearing, or rear differential (lack of oil). Will probably need to have a mechanic to identify and repair.

Wheel noise or roar in front end with increased road speed


THIS NOISE IS USUALLY THE HUB. HAVE SOMEONE GO WITH YOU ON A TEST DRIVE. GET THE ROARING TO HAPPEN AT ITS LOUDEST AND GENTLY SWERVE THE CAR LEFT AND RIGHT. DON'T BE SURPRISED IF YOU THINK BOTH HUBS ARE BAD. LIFT THE FRONT OF THE CAR AND PUT IT ON JACK STANDS. PULL OUTWARD ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TIRE WHILE PUSHING INWARD ON THE TOP OF THE WHEEL. IF THE WHEEL MOVES EXCESSIVELY YOU FOUND THE HUB THAT IS NOISY. USING A MECHANICS STETHOSCOPE YOU CAN SOMETIMES HEAR A ROARING TYPE NOISE ON THE BACKING PLATE SIDE OF THE HUB WITH THE ENGINE RUNNING AND THE TRANS IN GEAR. TRY NOT TO GET THE SPEED UP TOO FAR ESPECIALLY IF YOU CAN HEAR THE NOISE AT LOW SPEED, YOU DON'T WANT TO VIBRATE OFF THE STANDS.

AC/Heat Fan runs continuously and Rear end roaring noise


Sounds like the wheel bearing on the right rear hub may be defective, that would cause the noise if the tires are ok. As far as the fan goes not sure this isn't working as designed.
