Where's the Humming Coming From?

courtesy of Bob, The Auto Answer Man


Bob,
I own a '97 Ford Explorer (V8). When I go over 50 MPH, the car makes a humming noise. I had the tires re-balanced and the noise is still there. Please help. I am not a mechanic, but I like to do the work myself.

Barry,
It sounds like you may have a wheel bearing or a u-joint going out. You will need to pin down where you hear the noise coming from to be more precise.
Good Luck!
Drive Safely!
Bob, The Auto Answer Man
