Maybe one of your front wheels hub bearing is making the noise. They get pretty loud when driving, they can be heard at any speed. What happens is that the bearings come sealed with grease in them, sometimes the seal wears out and the grease in the bearings starts to dried out and the bearings start to grind metal to metal. It's pretty easy to check if that's the problem, you can do it yourself. Just need a Jack to lift the car front wheel(s) off the ground, put parking brake on, put transmission shifter in neutral, grab the jacked tire and try to turn it back and forth with your hands. Most of the time you can feel and hear the roaring coming from the culprit. Make sure you check both front wheels, they maybe both bad, if its just one that's bad, it is recommended that both be replaced at the same time. You can also do the same for the rear bearings.
Hopefully this will help you fix your problem.

This sounds like a noisy wheel bearing, they really can get loud, but quite when u turn because the weight comes off the wheel..

SOURCE: ford explorer making loud roaring noise at 35 to 45 mph

what year is your explorer, if it is a newer one say within the last 10 years it could be from either the rear end or it could be from a hub bearing in the front end. these have problems with hub bearings going out.

2005 ford focus makes a roaring noise while in park when you press on the gas. Sounds like it's come from the back of motor where exhaust connects to motor. ????


My friend's 2004 Focus was doing the same thing - especially loud when accelerating from a stop. When it reached stable speed, it got much quieter. We thought it was exhaust also, but couldn't find any cracks, gaps, or obvious leaks. We brought it to a garage, and they found a bad motor mount. When the engine was under load, it would torque (against either the frame or firewall) and make the loud, irritating noise. A new engine mount, and it sounds almost new again.

Loud roaring noise and vibration, gets louder as i press the gas, same in park, and also while starting the car it now seems like it hesitates to crank at first then is fine.


Not sure of starting problem, but you may have bad engine mounts causing the vibration/roaring noise. hav ethe engine mounts check. These vehicles have a history of bad mounts especially after 100K miles or more.

2000 ford focus is very noisy in car when starting in the cold and quiets down as vehicle warms up. Any ideas what could be causing this?


check for broken exhaust pipe or muffler could have hole rusted through muffler or check around exhaust manifold for exhaust leaks.

Engine roaring above 30mph


Is it possible you are hearing a wheel bearing instead of the engine or exhaust ?
Normally a bearing will roar on a turn and not on a straight stretch, but I guess its possible to do it the other way. A tire will make a roaring noise too.
I can't think of anything related to the engine that would roar only on a turn except maybe the power steering.

Loud exhaust noise on startup


2008 GMC Envoy is only equipped with one of two engines:
4.2L (254") 6-Cylinder SFI
5.3L (325") V-8 SFI

Niether of these engines are equipped with an EGR valve, so I guess the probability of that being the cause of your noise is pretty much zero to none.

If you believe the noise is being caused by the exhaust ststem, then the only way to verify that is to inspect the exhaust system. Leaks are easier to verify with the engine running.

With that said, there is also a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) that is published by GM that addresses customer complaints about loud noise that is being caused by the electro-viscous engine cooling fan clutch. Some people describe it as exhaust noise and others describe it as the engine "racing" or "roaring".(even though the tachometer (if equipped) will be reading normal)

It basicly says that it can make noise on startup due to high rpm of the fan which goes away once the electric solenoids open and allow the fan to start free-wheeling. GM says this is normal operation. You might want to check to be sure this is not what you are hearing. (it can be pretty loud)

Exaught manafold leak


You state that car makes a loud noise when driving. Do you notice the sound more when you accelerate? If yes, then it could be either the exhaust manifold gasket or the donut gasket. The donut gasket is where the exhaust pipe connects to the exhaust manifold.
