Customer Question
Hello, I have a 2002...
Hello, I have a 2002 Honda CRV with 135000 miles on it and recently I started hearing a sound that get louder as I increase speed on the highway. It’s noticeable at 60mph and very loud at 80mph. Could this be a CV joints or the front bearings?
Thank you

Hello Glenn, my name is***** on what the noise sounds like will help me to determine what it is. If you can try to describe that it would help. Most of the time this is caused by a bad hub bearing, but it can also be an axle or even a tire. I hope this helps. Please let me know what it sounds like and we can go from there. Thank you.

Hi Bobby, I would say its a howling like sound that increases with speed when traveling over 50mph up to 80mph. I don't drive over 80mph and it reduces when I left off the power and as the speed reduces.
Mechanic for Honda: Fixitman, Technician /Advisor replied 2 years ago
Thank you. It does sound like a failing bearing. I would start by rotating the tires to see if the sound changes. If it does then it is the tires. If not then it is usually from a bearing.

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
