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.

Ticking noise


Could be a CV joint. Or, a FRONT wheel bearing. Have your mechanic check. I have had wheel bearings go bad but the shop was unable to confirm until the damned thing literally fell apart. I told them MANY times I had a bad wheel bearing. They often don't perform a detailed inspection. Have you looked for twigs caught in the frame? It happens.

I HAVE A 2010 NISSAN MURANO...I HAVE A LOUD NOISE COMING FROM MY CAR THAT SOUNDS LIKE A JET ENGINE TAKING OFF/WINTER TIRES ON A CAR...I REPLACED MY 2 FRONT TIRES BECAUSE IT WAS NEEDED AND ACTUALLY THOUGH...


That most likely is a bad wheel bearing my friend. Jack each corner of the front and see if the wheel and tire will "shake" by trying to move the top of the tire in and out. On rear wheel drive vehicles, the rear axel will move in and out or op and down. If you spin the rear tire you may hear the grinding noise. Change that bearing where it moves or is noisy.

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.

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
