Just bought a 1995 Dodge Dakota 4x4 in Feb and it started making a humming noise in the front end and gets worse as the speed increases. It has 110,000 and a 318 motor. Tried revving the engine while not moving and it makes no noise so not the engine. Tried putting it in neutral while moving and it still hums. Seems like its coming from the front wheels? The front drive shafts still turns when it is disengaged. I know Chevy 4x4's don't do this but I don't know that much about Dodge. The tranny fluid is about 1/2" above the full line. Could this cause a problem? It is REALLY noticeable when on the highway. The higher the speed, the louder the hum. Only makes the hum when the wheels are moving. When you take your foot off the gas tho, there is no drag. It just coasts along but still hums. Any ideas as to what it could be? I just replaced the front brakes and it has new tires (only 3 weeks old for both?).
Thanx for any help you can give me!
