My 98 Taurus recently started making a humming noise at and above 40 mph.
It sounded like it was coming from the pass side, so I replaced the hub with
one I bought from Murrys.
I took it back on the e-way, and it still is there. It still sounds like it
is coming from the pass side.
I noticed that when I go over slight hills the pitch changes.
Any ideas as to what I should look at next?
Other side hub?
Tire looks ok. nothing noticeable.
Almost CERTAINLY the tire!
The giveaway is a pulsating hum, and you'll hear a hint of it at low speed on
a certain type of pavement.
Once it has advanced to a given point, one edge or the other of the tread
will start to scallop.. has usually been the inside edge on mine.
It's not usually a case where the tire's going to blow any moment, but it's
not doing your suspension any good.
Actually, sounds funny but that happened to me as well, couldn't
figure out what the noise was and my antenna was loose. Screwed it in
and the sound went away. It wasn't so much a hum noise as the hub
