06 Endeavor makes loud noise the more i accelerate.


Asked by May 26, 2015 at 08:59 PM about the 2006 Mitsubishi Endeavor LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2006 endeavor, 170k miles no major issues. Began having uneven tire wear about a year ago when the noise began. My mechanic recommended I do the struts since I never have and that was the cause of the uneven tire wear. As the tires got worse, the noise became louder. Finally did all 4 struts, got 4 brand new Yokohama tires, damn noise is still there. While accelerating, the noise gets really loud and almost the second I remove my foot off the gas its lessens and of course stops once I stop. I want to ay I feel almost like a constant vibration while driving although the truck drives smoothly, getting to 80 or 90 with no problem. I think its the bearings but not sure at this point. Anyone have some advice, I really don't want to go to the dealer for this. Thanks,

if it's a humming noise you hear more than likely it's your front or rear wheel bearings. I have a 2004 and had the same issue. Get checked out asap....wheel bearings are not anything to sleep on.

I agree! I have a 2004 that did the same thing. It changed from humming to a low roar. I took it to the Mitsubishi dealership and told them about the noise. They couldn't find it. Finally I asked them to check the rear bearing on one side I thought I heard the noise from and sure enough that was it. As a suggestion replace both sides of the axle at the same time. If you are having problems on one axle it is pretty much a guarantee all the bearings will need replaced. Good luck.

Thanks fellas, took it back to my mechanic this weekend and he was able to figure out its the rear driver side bearing. Will be changing it this weekend, Hopefully that is it, im really picky with my cars any little noise drives me crazy and this ain't no little noise..
