Question Up Up and away?!?!

Fellas...

Im about 82k. This last trip I took from OK to CA, flawless. This week While driving I hear this noise. Sounds like a plane taking off. Sounds like it coming from the right front of the car. (RRRRRRrrrrrrr) the pitch climbs with speed.

I took of the tire, checked it. I looked to see if any plastic from that lower front "spoiler" was touching the ground and if any in the wheel well were rubbing or touching. Nothing!

I sat in the drive way and revved the motor and held it at 25 to 3000 RPM maybe it was the bearings going bad in the Alt. Nothing. SOOOOO, went for a drive and while Driving I put the car in "N" (BAD, I know) and then I shut the car off. So, now Im rolling and coming to a stop....(rrrrrRRRR) The car isnt running and the transmission is in Neutral and there was the sound.

I also have shaking or like when I brake its Brake_Brake_brake. Like it the rotors are wraped?

Sorry to long winded but I need a lil advise.

Check your rotors and pads, look for damage.

Sounds like you might have a brake issue and possible a wheel bearing noise. Does the pedal pulsate (move up and down) When u brake.

Sounds like you got warped rotors. I would replace them and the pads. Then test drive it. I would not turn them unless they have recently been replaced. Just a personal preforation.

Jack the front of the car up, grab the right front tire at top and bottom and pull and push for any play. Repeat when holding the tire at the sides. If you feel a slight amount of play in both directions you probably need a new wheel bearing. If you only feel play when grabbing the tire at the sides it could be a tie rod end. The other symptom of a bad bearing on the right is the noise will be worse when turning left, since that puts the most stress on the right bearing.

The pulsating in the braking is likely warped brake rotors. Replace rotors and pads.

To add on to what Roy said, if your hub is bad it can warp your rotor (did it to me once), so check them as well if you fail the hub test.

Same problem mine has. I think it'* from a bent rim, just never got around to replacing it.

Sounds like it'* your rotors, but a bad wheel bearing can also make a roaring noise, especially in parking lots and during any very low speed maneuvering. If you jack up your car to shake the tire, try rotating it by hand and listen for any noise.

Full-size sedans and other large vehicles are notorious for eating through wheel bearings. My front ones just started roaring at me last week.
