This can be a power steering belt loose or the power steering pump malfunction. To check if it's a belt problem with engine running open the hood and pour a small ampunt of water (1/4 gal or a bit less) over the belt located on the left side of the engine if the sound lowers then it's most likely the belt only.

How do I check for worn wheel bearings


lift vechiel and support by jack stand. grab top and bottom of tire and wiggle it in and out, alternatly. or up and down, depending on how you look at it. but easiest way is to drive it. when noise happens, turn left and right, if noise gets louder or quieter as you turn then its guareenteed to be a wheel bearing. turn left and get louder, replace right side. if turn right and gets louder replace left side. if noise does not change due to turning. then not wheel bearing making noise.

1992 GMC sierra two wheel drive 4.3l V6 Have a vibration or rubbing noise when I turn the steering wheel sharply to the left at parking lot speeds.


If you let go of steering wheel and step on brakes does the wheel vibrate?

I'd say its either warped rotors, power steering malfunction, or possible wheel bearing, although if wheel bearing you should feel/hear a hum which would get louder depending on which way you turn the vehicle.

Humming noise from driver rear wheel on 09 camry


Check wheel bearings. Properly jack up the car one side at a time with blocks set in front of and behind the front wheels with the car in Park. Do not set the parking brake as this will prevent the rear wheels from being spun while off the ground. Safety consideration--- Do not get any body parts between the wheel and finder or under the car in case it slips off the jack---- After one rear wheel is slightly off the ground begin to spin it and listen for rough / dry/ popping noises or break pad drag. See if the noise gets louder when you spin it faster or one direction versus the other. Check for loose bearing by trying to wiggle the tire side to side and top to bottom. Pay attention to tire wear. If you find nothing in the wheel itself, the tire might be the problem if the tread is worn oddly. You can change that tire's position with another wheel and see if the noise changes to the tire's new location. Repeat by checking the other side.

Makeing a loud tumbling noiseon truns


Those sorts of noise on turns usually means the CV joints are failing. A flexible joint that allows the drive wheels to move up and down and turn while powering the car.

Front wheel bearings bad


if it gets louder when you turn left then the right front wheel bearing is bad and vice versa it gets louder when the weight shifts to that wheel

A rumbling noise gets louder the faster you go,the car is quiet when in park and no vibrations when it is reved up


Sounds like a wheel bearing.

If you jack up each wheel in turn and spin the wheel (make sure the parking brake is off and transmission is in neutral) the offending bearing will produce the rumbling noise.
