Noises problem
2003 Oldsmobile Alero 4 cyl 73,000 miles

I have had my car inspected regularly with the oil changes always on time. I have recently noticed that my car has a lot of "road noise" that I am experiencing inside of the car. My RPMs are staying consistent to what they have always been and at idle the noise is not there. When in neutral and the car is revved high, it is silent except for the revving noise that is normal. I notice the extra noise starting at 30-35 MPH and it gets increasingly worse the faster I go. I have no problems with steering what so ever and my tire pressure is where it is supposed to be. I recently had my car inspected and everything passed just fine and my tread is in good condition on my tires. There is absolutely nothing wrong other than the noise is loud. I did have work down on my horn and I wonder if they did something with my sound-proofing or not.

Do you
have the same problem?

Does the sound seem like it is a vibration in a hollow tube? If so here is something to check. Take a look under the drivers dash look at the steering column does it have a rubber or plastic boot around it? If so does it look like it is securely in place? If not and if you can try wrapping a towel or something around it that wont interfere with your driving and test drive it if the noise is gone then the problem is that they didn't secure the boot properly.

Was this
