Hi, I would appreciate any help. My car is at 73,000 miles and has been very good until now. Within the last week, a very heavy humming noise has appeared out of nowhere, I am 90% it is the front end, but I am not positive. The tachometer indicates that the transmission is shifting fine. The car is not overheating and if I take my foot off the brake on a slight incline, it starts to roll and it is not hanging up any, and there is no hesitation when accelerating. I do not think it is the CV joints, from prior experience (1988 and 1990 Taurus') they made clunking noises when they went bad. Does a front wheel drive have a wheel bearing in the front like it does in the rear? The humming noise is deep, not high pitched or 'whine' like.
Thank you for any help.
have the same problem?
