1999 Chevrolet Venture Question: whinning noise from front wheel, the faster i go the louder it gets.
Answer #1patrick mannion from Greg Solow's Engine Room, August 26, 2011, 22:48Master
A whining noise that increases with noise as road speed or cornering loads are but on that road wheel is most likely a bearing but I would usually only replace one side unless that model of car is very prone to wheel bearing failure.
