(2002 Ford Ranger)
in Canton, OH on October 17, 2010
While driving I am hearing a Roaring type noise coming from the front of my truck. The noise is only heard from inside the truck and not outside of the truck it seems to get louder the faster I drive at speed exceeding (60) mph and higher what could this noise be from the truck has new tire, no vibration or steering problems just the loud roar.

Sounds like your fan clutch is engaged. It should go away as you drive, but may appear on initial start up, or when the fan is needed. You could also have an issue with the fan clutch if it is absolutely continual.

I replaced the fan clutch which seemed to be going bad anyway but this did not solve the problem with the noise. however I was told that it could be a CV joint that is bad could this be the problem even there is no vibration or trouble steering, and still have a smooth ride.

I'm not so sure about a CV joint issue. Perhaps a wheel bearing issue? Have the vehicle put up on a lift and have the wheels and axles inspected.
