The most common reason for a humming noise in the front area of your car would be a wheel bearing noise. I would start by having the wheel bearings checked.

There are two ways to check the bearings, one would be to jack wheels of the ground and check for free play in wheels, the other would require having a tech test drive the car, a good test drive by a tech can tell you if it is a wheel bearing problem.

A wheel bearing noise will get louder as the speed increases and the tone will change if the wheel is turned left or right.
You can try this test yourself, get car up to speed of noise and then listen as you turn wheel to left and then right and if the tone changes then i would suspect the bearing and next step is to find out which one, this would need to be done on a lift. good day

SOURCE: Hyundai 1998 Elantra Growling sound from front

You have a bad front wheel bearing on the left side because you say when you turn right the noise goes away, because when you turn right the suspension lifts up on the opposite side and releives some weight on the bearing causing it to quiet down. No it is NOT a DIY repair unless you have some pretty extensive tools. the quickest easiest and least expensive way to fix this is to go to a wrecking yard and buy a steering knuckle for the left. it will have a wheel bearing already pressed into it and all you have to do is replace the whole thing and you are done. do not open any brake lines or hoses to do this job just gently press the brake caliper piston back about 1/2" so it will fit over the brake pads when you reinstall.
please rate this advice a fixya if you feel I have provided excellent service.

SOURCE: "Humming" or "bearing" type noise in left front at highway speeds

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

all power windows work from the driver's arm rest control however,
all of the other arm rest power window controls do not work separately
on their own.
checked all the fuses and they are ok.

SOURCE: My front end makes a loud humming noise.

Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

Its the pully. I have a 2006 and had the same issue. It went on for months and I was told it was "normal". Well the bearings on the puly were blown and it broke the belt while I was driving. Cost 20 bucks to fix.

Humming noise from engine when driving lexus


Your wheels each have rotor speed sensors...

These are easily bent or misaligned... and can be
put into a position of INTERFERENCE with the
(particularly ... in YOUR case "RIGHT FRONT")
ROTOR...

These parts ARE NOT CHEAP... and WILL
ADVERSELY impact the operation of BOTH
TRACTION CONTROL & ABS (anti-lock brakes)...

It is a WORK ERROR... while your BRAKES
were being "inspected" ... your
rookie dealer "mechanic" most likely did
something...

ROAD-HAZARDS "can" break these parts...
but reasoning with your fully functioning
brain... (OCCAM'S Razor)
Occam razor Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

You should NEVER HAVE LEFT... without
having a SERVICE PERSON making a note
of your ABS & TRC lights...

You do have rights... and government
licensing boards... In the unlikely event
your "dealer" FAILS to recognize their
obvious WORK ERROR...

OCCAMS razor:
When you hear the thunder of hoof
beats... Think HORSES... (not Zebras)

When driving our 2001 montana, the noise gets really loud. Like a loud humming. What could be causing this noise? We had one wheel bearing replaced on the front left wheel which was a little loose, but...


"Loud humming" could describe many of the noises that your minivan may make. Let's start with the basics: do you hear the noise only when the van is in motion or also when the van is stopped? If you can hear the noise even when the van isn't moving, you're most likely looking at something in the engine compartment. Your serpentine belt and the alternator bearings (and, to a lesser likelihood, your power steering pump) are all sources of noise "in there." An A/C compressor on its last legs may also vibrate and cause a humming sound, though that's usually described as more of a "growl."

If you can only hear the noise when the car is in motion, the next question is whether it changes pitch/volume due to engine speed or due to road speed? For example, does the noise get quieter (momentarily, perhaps) when the transmission shifts gears? Or, does the noise simply get louder/change characteristics in a linear way as the van gets faster and/or slower?

Depending on the mileage on your van, the transmissions have been known to get quite noisy after a while, especially if you are doing sustained high-speed driving. The solution for that particular problem isn't cheap, as it involves replacing or rebuilding the transmission (the shift bands may be fine; the noise is caused by bearing wear, seal failure, and other sundry issues that still require pulling the transmission). A less expensive problem is that you might have a problem with one of your tires--a tire with separating belts may make a noise like this as it slowly tears itself apart. If you hit something hard with the undercarriage of the van, you might have a drive shaft that's slightly bent and hence is causing some sympathetic vibrations in the car because it's out of balance.

Depending on the cause, your humming sound may be one of those things that comes with driving an older car--or it may be a sign of the imminent failure of something serious. It's worth getting things checked out again to try to find the cause of the problem. You'll feel a lot better knowing what it is, even if it's something you choose not to fix.

I have a whistle or humming noise from the front of 05 Montana.


Put wide tape on different areas of the windshield edge as a test to see if the noise changes.Then you may know where the noise originates and can correct the noise.
Just by chance,it is a wind noise? and not a front wheel bearing going bad?which is common on these vehicles and can create a humming at different speeds.Next time when the hum shows up turn the steering wheel slightly left and right at road speed and if you can change the hum,it's 99% a wheel bearing.

Front end noise


Sounds like rust build up on the rotors,this is a common problem with after market rotors,or it is a squealer tab and they squeal to warn you before damage is done to the rotors when brake pads are 2/3 worn down.have a brake inspection done.
