Whenever I get up to a speed of 35 m.p.h. or more with my 98' Accord, a
vibration and corresponding bumping noise begins. This noise is very rapid
sounding even at slower speeds. I can get on up to roughly 65 m.p.h. and the
noise continues. If I slightly turn the wheel to the left at pretty much any
speed over 35 m.p.h. the noise completely stops temporarily until I
straighten the wheel back out or turn to the right; which makes it even
worse. At least it seems that way.
The tires are almost new Bridgestone Turanza LS-Hs. They only have about 600
miles on them now. If it were a bad tire that is causing the problem, I
don't understand why the noise will completely stop when I slightly turn the
vehicle at cruising speed. This is why I would lean towards a diagnosis of a
bad wheel bearing. It appears to be coming from the left front wheel area of
Lastly, can a bad CV joint produce this same type of noise with these
particular types of Honda cars?
