My mile eater has developed a droning noise in the front end like a worn wheel bearing but I haven't determined that is the problem yet. I am pretty good and fixing things but not so great at diagnosing some problems.
So far I jacked up the right wheel and it seemed hard to rotate, then I jacked up the left and it rotated well so I went back to the right hand side to investigate it some more and it had loosened up and seemed to rotate well so I was at a bit of a loss. After that I tore out the front wheel well liners which have been rubbing on the tires for the past few years but that did not help with the sound. The droning seems to develop after I hit 40 km/hr (25 mph) and it is kind of worrisome so I'd like to figure it out. The sound can be heard when I'm on the gas and coasting.
Can this sound come from the CV axles or the transmission? It doesn't seem to be a typical worn wheel bearing where the wheel is wobbly when you lift up the car and start tilting the wheel. Front end is all original @ 250,000 miles and I do not swerve for pot holes.
