Customer Question
Started last week. 1995...

Started last week. 1995 toyota 4runner, 2WD, 153xxx miles. No unusual noises when idling, when in gear at slow speed slow whooshing sound from up front (passenger side?), accelerates with speed. Vibrates while moving.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?

Original transmission. It is fine power-wise, gets up and goes strong - checked it out on the highway too, so I do not suspect fuel delivery is bad.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 4Runner yourself? What have you tried so far?

I do brakes and oul changes. Leaving the rest to the mechanic. I plan to take it to him tomorrow.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it. I wonder if this whoosh-whoosh sound could be the front u--joint of the drive axels

Thanks for posting

It sounds like the tire may be the cause, check the tire for any flat spots or uneven wear, it could also be a tread separation issue which may be internal to the tire, this could also explain the vibration as speed increases.

This was my first guess. All 4 tires have been rotated and balanced on Friday to eliminate this possibility. So, it is not the tires.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No, thank you.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the reply, I bad front wheel bearing would be my next thing to suspect in this case.
