I ahve a 2003 V6 Honda Accord with close to 100,000 Miles and now notice a noise (wheel-bearing type) when the vehicle is moving. A bit louder at higher speeds. All maintenance has been done as scheduled. Tires are still (30,000 miles) and inflated. Wheel-bearing? Other? Cost?

Does The Sound Change (Volume, Pitch) When Making A Fairly Tight Sweeping Curve To The Right Or To The Left Or Does It Remain Unchanged In The Curve ?

Well, lets see…“a noise” when the vehicle is moving…

  • a CD case rattling in a door pocket?
  • a loose jack or associated component?
  • a loose heat or splash shield?
  • a loose piece of trim on the car?
  • a loose fender splash shield?
  • an unevenly worn tire or set of tires?
  • a loose ground strap on the ignition sending radio feedback?
  • debris in the blower motor?
  • brake wear indicators?
  • etc. etc.

I’m obviously kidding with some of those (like a rattling CD) - but seriously - all you said is that the car makes a noise and you want diagnosis and cost.

Can you elaborate?

Yes, hard to imitate, but it’s not a rattling or anything that is loose. Sounds a bit like worn tires, a constant low level noise, like driving on grooved pavement. tires seem ok and relatively new (2 years, 30,000 miles). All work done / scheduled maintenance at dealer, so presuambly they are rotating as necessary.

Hello . . . ?

At 30K miles the tires are not out of suspicion.

But are you going to answer common sense answer’s question?


#7

No, the noise does not seem to change volume or pitch when turning or at least that I have been able to immitate.
