00Linc ls noise from front end sounds like tire road noise steering wheel shakes a little


Wheel bearing? If you turn left and it gets louder. It is the right wheel bearing. And vice versa.

I have a 2000 Chevy S-10 4.3L V6 2x4. I am hearing a noise when I'm driving. The sound seems to be coming from the front and the noise isnt there when the car is idling or when I'm not on the gas. Whe


Kind of sounds like tire noise, did you recently change the tires? If not I would have the front wheel bearings and breaks checked

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed


One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.

Front end hum/noise


The hum could be being generated by the tires. I would move the rear tires to the front (as they are a different brand) and see if the hum is exactly the same at the same speed.

High speed hum can also be generated from the design of some types of brake rotors but I doubt that is the issue in this case.

From what you have described I would not have thought the problem would be wheel bearings so I am surprised that was the diagnosis before a more careful investigation was carried out. I would have tested the tires first. (I would not have put the old wheel bearings back in either after they had been changed).

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

2006 Volvo S60 AWD rear humming noise


Wheel bearing is the most likely cause. Prob a 1.5-2 hour labor rate job in the shop.
