Unknown noise developed

Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

Been doing a lot of motorway driving lately and I think it's damaged something on the car it sounds like wheel bearing but with a juddering noise coming from the front of the car I've looked right over the car ie wheel bearings disc brakes suspension. Now I'm thinking about gearbox or the diff inside might be damaged I have oil to fill it up with to see if this helps but if anyone has any similar problems then please let me know 

Thanks kieran

CV joint? If gearbox, you'd get a whining usually. If bearing, it gets louder as you go faster.

I'm just about to look at the shafts and cv's also topping up the gearbox oil for peace of mind

Welcome to CL! :)

yeah, the auto box needs regular maintenance, just like the engine. All auto boxes do. Every 20k miles minimum.

I'd suggest a full fluid change along with the internal oil filter and magnet clean. And as well as the fluid, you could change the oil in the diff section (and magnet clean), which everyone forgets. I bet it's never had its filter or fluids changed...

noise= damage

no drive= low fluid

quiet= all good.
