2000 Chrysler Cirrus Repair Question
2000 Chrysler Cirrus Humming Noise
2000 Chrysler Cirrus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 185000 miles
Going 35 miles an hour or more my cirrus makes an obvious humming sound. I cannot pinpoint where it comes from. It seems to be coming from the front somewhere. When going about 50 miles per hour, I give it a tug to the left and this makes it louder then I give it a tug to the right and the this makes it more quiet. I brought it to a repair shop and they replaced the right front wheel bearing but this did not help. I brought it back and they replaced it again in case the new one was defective but to no avail. I still I have that agrivating hum under my car. They checked out the whole front end and could not find anything else wrong. The only things that I can think of are, the left front wheel bearing, or a rear wheel bearing echoing to the front, or the transaxle carrier bearings. Can you give me a sure method of weeding out this problem? thanks. Dennis
You can try replacing the l/f wheel bearing as a process of elimination. Is the alignment correct? Are the inner tie rod bushings ok? If all is good then it could very well be the diff in the trans, maybe try a service to see if has any effect on the noise. Does the car make any strange noises on tight u-turns or any other time?
