While getting my brake pads and rotors replaced, the mechanic found the right wheel bearing being frozen and had to replace the bearing. Just 2 wks prior I had that same wheel bearing packed by a different shop.? I had replaced both cats, 4 02 sensors prior to brakes being done. After I left the brake place got gas I heard a loud hum or whine when accelerating after driving a couple of blocks. Also, am hearing what some might call whistling but mine is like a flute playing different notes and its on as soon as I turn on the car, while I'm driving and when I park and car is off. It stays on for a long time. Ive had 3 different mechanics tell me they cant hear anything. The hum gets louder at around 40-50mph. I just bought this used car a mo. Ago and didn't have these noises till after I had the brakes done. I discovered that the ebrake was on too tight 1 clik. I went elsewhere and they changed it to about 4 cliks. I have prostop ceramic brakes. I dont know if the brake guy forgot something or what but he did not do the ebrake properly. So I dont want to go back. I cant get anyone to drive that speed to listen. Im hard of hearing and dont know where its coming from but think its up front. My truck runs great just the noises is driving me crazy that I dont want to drive it not knowing if Im going to cause further damage. Im clueless what to do. Afraid to have unnecessary work done that will drown me financily. Also, are all sensors parts the same when installing? Mechanic charge 2 different prices out of the four? All my belts are good.
have the same problem?
