2000 Chevy Suburban loud humming noise/front right rim hot
I'm not totally sure how to explain this, but my ABS light and parking brake lights are both on. Just recently I started to hear a loud humming noise when going over 60-65 mph. It sounds like when you drive over a white strip on the side of a road. It sounds like it's coming from my front right tire. I also noticed today that when I touched the rim it was really hot. I touched the rest of them and they weren't nearly as hot.
Could be stuck brake caliper,or may be bad wheel bearing.Need to have it checked soon,if ABS light is on all so.
or a pad gave way..you or have a friend lift that side and give it a spin..grab the top and bottom of the tire and rake it in and out.. TST and i agree.. fix it
Ok thank you guys for the help. Ill have my dad look at it asap. I'm kind of scared to drive it now cause I was told the tire could fall off while driving it. I'm the most paranoid driver there is.
If the tire moves when pushing it that means it's the wheel bearing right?
And I forgot to mention the breaks work pretty good there's no noise or anything when I push them. Just makes the noise when I am driving. Could this still be something with the breaks??
Yes, more than likely if it moves "in and out" with your hands. I would get that to the shop asap.
the problem is if the bearing is shot..you might not want to drive it to get it repaired..if you have a place real close and take it slow..best bet, jack it up at home and get an idea from your dad or someone that knows...
It sounds like a wheel bearing has frozen up. You may have already ruined the spindle and it may need to be replaces if the bearing has frozen or welded itself on. It would be safe to drive it to a brake shop or dealer to fix it. A specialty shop may be less expensive, but make sure before the bearing is replaced they show it to you while still on so you know what is the problem. Some frozen bearings can be pulled or hammered off and not have caused damage to anything else. Make sure you are shown th damage or scaring if it need to be replaced. It does not sound like brakes. If it was a frozen pad, you'd feel a pulling towards the frozen pad as the brake would be on, and the tire would lock up. You CV boot also could be bad. Chances are the stub axle on the steering knuckle just may be damaged.
It was the whole wheel hub that needed to be replaced. I had just bought this suburban used with one previous owner off a car dealership. They replaced one side, but didn't replace the side that was messing up. Thanks everyone for the help!
