Default My car is still HUMMING! Can't your'*?

Ok. I posted something on this a while ago, and it was pointed towards the tires. So i figured well, ok, could be tires, i'll wait for my winter ones to on and see if this humm goes away. Well guess what?? IT'* STILL THERE!!

it only starts at 130kms, and has a constant beat. like every 4 seconds or so. that'* why i thought it might have been the tires, because it makes the noise everytime the tire comes around. but apparently not. I can also feel the gas peddle vibrating when it does it'* little humm. grr

and, on top of that, i've got a grinding in my front end. when i turn the wheel, it does it, but ONLY when the brake is on.

Diagnose, me Dr.'*...I'm waiting. lol!

That grinding noise--think it might be the cv joint? I had the same thing--sometimes when I turned it would make like a grinding noise--not always tho--the boot was torn and there was alot of grease on the lower a-frame--so I replaced it-still get a grinding noise every once in awhile!
Hey--can't hurt to check the cv joint anyway.
I also read somewhere that a guy was having a similar problem(grinding noise when he turned)turned out to be a sway bar bushing.
Just trying to give you a few avenues to explore.

Hmmm I can't diagnose you unless I first pop ur hood... OMG does that sound dirty or what....He He He

I think Rodz might be onto something.. Its possible for it to be a CV joint... But that fact that its every 4 seconds makes me wonder.. You say its a constant hum.. Are you sure that you dont have a possibly bad poer steering pump or alternator or even a water pump..? I'd hate to see you having any trans trouble.. Its still hard to say.. Anyhow check the power steering pump and make sure its not leaking or failing.. Check the fluid level also.. I hate checking the fluid in these.. The power steering pump is well hidden.. Let us know what you find if anything.. This one is unusuall..

well, yea, constant once you get up to 130 hehe i meant constant as it dosn't stop once you hit that speed, and it'* in intervals, probalby not as long as 4 seconds, but in sequence with something i'm assuming...and like i said i feel it in the gas peddle. It'* got even me confused

I'll be right up to take a look at it for you Dear... lol.. Let us know whats up with Hollywood...
