    Unhappy whirring noise from front of the car at 10 to 25 mph! Help Please!!

    I have a 2004 Cadillac Escalade AWD. About a month ago a whirring noise from front of the car started happing. (Sounds like a jet engine turning off)
    I cannot for the life of me find this noise. Any help please!

    Hereís all the info:

    I have replaced the front rotors, brake pads, driver side wheel barring, tie rods, drives side control arm bushing, changed the differential fluid. I have also had the tires balanced and rotated and a new alignment. They are new tires with less than 3k miles on them too.

    I cannot figure out what it could be. I only hear it from 10 to 25 mph. Iím not 100% sure, but I think it goes away when I apply the gas.(I say Iím not sure because the engine noise might just be masking it) Doesnít matter if Iím turning or going straight. No change in how the car performs either.

    Tranny has not been serviced lately, I did check the level. Level is good, fluid is still pretty red, no smell of burning.

    Same here, but I already replaced the drivers side, and the passengers side I have checked over a few times.

    Could possibly be the passenger bearing as I had to replace one on my previous car and the other was not too far behind

    Its best to replace both to be sure and safe

    One way to tell if the noise goes away when you make a right hand turn then it is the wheel bearing
    If not then you have another bearing somewhere else going bad

    I believe my front diff. is making noise also. Bought new, but has 140,000 on it now. Probably not covered under warranty. Wondering what this would cost?

    driver side differential carrier bearing more likely. put some moly in the front diff it will help tremendously. best thing u can do is get diff rebuilt and after breakin put moly in the front diff.
