2009 nissan murano transmission

I’m thinking of buying a 2004 Nissan Xterra 2.4L Manual transmission with 167,000 miles. Is there anything I should be concerned if I buy this truck. Are these reliable? Are parte still available ?

2023.04.01 21:10 MinnNiceEnough Trade in 2009 GMC Acadia AWD in USA/MN?

I have a 2009 GMC Acadia AWD with roughly 125K miles on it. Original owner, garage kept and really in nice condition, but it just recently started to get a surge between 2nd and 3rd gear. It still runs down the road fine, but something is clearly wrong with the transmission or a sensor...I'm not interested in fixing it.
Anyway, I have a 2023 Chevy Tahoe on order, and it's supposed to be to my dealer any day now. The dealer has already told me that he'd give me $1000 for the Acadia because of it's age, and he encouraged me to sell it myself. I just don't know that I want to deal with trying to sell it, especially considering the new transmission issue. Thoughts? Do I try to sell it privately? Trade it? Donate it? I don't really need the money, but I'd prefer to find someone that can fix it and drive it rather than give it to the dealer for $1K, and have them just turn around and wholesale it for $2K (or more). Let me know your thoughts...

2023.04.01 19:22 rokarmedforces "What does a 10 tons weight difference mean in a tank?" An article from Norwegian scientific journal that compares K2 Black Panther and Leopard 2's design philosophies

Source Article
A Norwegian scientific journal that's been closely covering the latest Norwegian tank acquisition (54x Leopard 2A7 to be acquired) published an article recently. A former Norwegian Army Chief closely mirrors my previous post that sheds light into K2's design philosophy.
TLDR: lighter weight =/= less armor
I thought the timing was perfect as this article was published just few days after that post. This article further supports the evaluation by the Norwegian army that K2 Black Panther and Leopard 2A7 are basically equal to one another in performance, and why it twice recommended the K2. But from the strategic perspective of the Norwegian government, it also makes sense to acquire the Leopard 2A7 for logistics & allied interoperability reasons.
Google Translation:
What does ten tons on a tank mean? It depends on which general you ask.
On Friday 3 February, the government announced that it is acquiring 54 new Leopard 2A7 tanks from Krauss-Maffei Wegmann.

This happened after a competition with two invited participants in which the German supplier was preferred over Korean Hyundai Rotem and their K2 Black Panther tank.

As Teknisk Ukeblad has mentioned , the decision was taken despite the fact that Defense Materials recommended the Korean candidate, which, among other things, should have been considerably less expensive.

Teknisk Ukeblad has only been given access to redacted copies of Defense Material's recommendations to the Defense Staff. It is still possible to reason that, in addition to price, the question of weight is something that is weighted relatively heavily. The passage on this topic forms a significant part of the graded discussions.

Both tanks have diesel engines producing 1,500 horsepower, while the weight difference is around ten tonnes. Then the question is what the difference in the weight/power ratio has to say practically and operationally.

Teknisk Ukeblad has spoken to former defense chief Harald Sunde, who believes this has marginal significance, while former army chief Lars J. Sølvberg, on the other hand, believes it has obvious consequences.

Equaly good

First, it must be emphasized that Forsvarsmaterel's review concluded that both tanks met the requirements and that the overall assessment of performance indicates that they are roughly equally good.

In the FMA documents, it appears that the Leopard 2A7 weighs just under 70 tonnes, while the K2 Black Panther weighs just under 60 tonnes.

"I think the weight issue is interesting, as I understood that it was a requirement from Defense Material to stay below 60 tonnes and I know that Hyundai Rotem made many moves to succeed in this, despite the fact that they switched on APS (active protection) . From experience, this weight difference will have major consequences for both logistics and mobility," says Sølvberg.

He is a retired major general and former commander of the Army and has been associated with the Korean campaign based on what he says is a genuine interest in the Armed Forces getting a good solution to something that has been hanging in the air for many years. In other words, modern tanks to replace the around 40-year-old Leopard 2A4s that were bought used over 20 years ago.

When it comes to the logistics part, he says that the Norwegian Armed Forces are already in borderland on a number of roads and bridges when the Leo 2A4 is transported around, and that the problem could become greater with new tanks in combination with new cargo vehicles from RMMV, which increase the total weight .

It is also a strategic point. He believes it is important not to put the Army in an unfavorable position where they are only referred to isolated training fields. Being able to practice throughout the country and be visible in your training maneuvers also has a deterrent effect.

Less need for steel

Sølvberg further points out that weight is a very important component in the mobility dimension.

"This was also a theme in the days of the Leopard 1. I remember the Americans visiting Norway with considerably heavier M60 tanks, and there was a dramatic difference in the ability to navigate the terrain. There is a lot of bog in Norway. And anyone who has been stuck there with a tank knows that then it is quickly done to stay put for good," says Sølvberg.

Sølvberg rejects that lower weight means less protection and refers to information TU has also received from Hyundai Rotem:

They say that the main reason why K2 weighs less is less need for steel. Many tons are saved in a tower that is smaller because the charger is replaced by an auto charger and the crew consists of three instead of four. The modern "power pack" (engine and transmission) is more compact and lighter, while the wheel suspension also saves weight.

"The height profile, being able to lower down and reduce one's own silhouette, can also be of great importance for survivability," points out Sølvberg.

The K2 is equipped with a hydropneumatic suspension solution that can be somewhat reminiscent of what you find on passenger cars from Citroën. This means that the ground clearance can be regulated from 0.55 to 0.15 meters (0.45 is standard).

Raising the front slightly in relation to the rear helps to increase passability on snow. The adaptive chassis also makes it possible to raise the cannon from minus 10 to plus 24 degrees by kneeling or sitting on the hind legs.

Sølvberg compares the tanks as a 2000s digital construction, in contrast to analogue steel from the 1970s.

"It's future versus past, a Hyundai Ioniq versus an Opel Rekord. The development potential is vastly greater for K2 than Leo, as well as the fact that K2, for example, has a built-in simulator and digital maintenance management for better and cheaper support services. But by all means, I have a lot of good things to say about Leo. After many years of service with two generations of Leopard, I know that they were excellent systems - for their time. But I had hoped that the Army would now take a solid place going forward," says the former army commander.

Somewhat exaggerated

Someone who also has a lot of good things to say about Leo, both its past and future, is retired general Harald Sunde. Just a few weeks after Russia invaded Ukraine, the former defense chief told Teknisk Ukeblad that he considered it a matter of course that Norway acquired new tanks from Germany .

He primarily argued the importance of continuing to use the same material as our close allies and ensuring that we can also fight together in one group in the future and have systems with interoperability.

He does the same today, and emphasizes that the advantages of large households must be exploited to the utmost and that shared logistics solutions must be further developed.

Leopard 2 is used today in various versions by all the Nordic countries, as well as Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Hungary, Poland, Turkey, Greece, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Canada - as well as Ukraine.

"I think a good choice has been made here, albeit in overtime. The Norwegian army, like other NATO countries, has chosen the maneuver concept as a form of combat, and it requires storm armored vehicles and tanks that fight as one unit. We have modern armored personnel carriers in upgraded CV90s, but we have lacked modern tanks," says Sunde.

"I think that the weight issue is somewhat exaggerated. We have a lot of hills, mountains and solid ground, so that the carrying capacity of heavy vehicles in this country is not an obstacle. Restrictions on roads and such, I would call a peace problem. We have a lot of hilly terrain, but in return it gives large fields of fire and the opportunity to utilize the tanks' great strength - flat-track fire at 3-4,000 metres," says Sunde.

Not eitheor

54 Leopard 2A7s are to be acquired from KMW. This means that the Army is continuing a 53-year-long tradition in which they have used the Leopard 1A5 and now, most recently, the Leopard 2A4.

The main delivery from the Munich-based company is scheduled to take place in the period 2026–2028. The contract includes an option for a further 18 tanks.

Sunde has no doubt that this option should be used and says he is looking forward to the Chief of Defense's new professional military council. As is known, the acquisition of tanks on the eve of the process was surprisingly postponed when it became known that the chief of defense recommended dropping tank purchases.

"I want to defend Kristoffersen a little, because I know what it's like to be underfunded. Then such powerful remarks are needed. But I would say that the discussion about maneuverability and long-range fire cannot be eitheor. Long-range fire is a casualty, and it is the effect that matters most, not whether it is delivered by rockets, artillery shells or air-to-ground operations. But to conquer and hold ground, maneuver is needed," says Sunde, who was chief of defense in the period 2009–2013.

German configuration

Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) informed Teknisk Ukeblad at the end of January last year, when the winter tests at Rena were about to start, that their Leopard 2A7 weighed 64 tons.

In Forsvarsmateriel's mapping, it appears that the tank weighs close to 70 tonnes.

Teknisk Ukeblad has asked KMW what is the reason for this difference, and has received the answer that it was the Leopard 2A7 in German configuration that was used in the winter tests, and that information about the current Norwegian configuration belongs to FMA.

Among the things that increase the emphasis is active protection (APS), something that, by the way, both candidates offered.

Hyundai Rotem still does not want to comment on the Norwegian tank competition. Their representative Mogens Rasmus Mogensen in Military Equipment Denmark (MED) has stated to TU that they were very satisfied with the way FMA conducted the competition and with the whole process, until the matter ended up at a political level and someone high up in the system thought it was most important that Norway buys material from Germany.

As for the difference in weight between Leo 2A7 and K2, Sunde says that this is of marginal importance, especially now that we are talking about the defense of Norway and the soil we have here.

2023.04.01 18:21 TheOnlyLibretto How much would labor cost to replace a rack and pinion?

Car is a 2004 Nissan Murano, Have a mechanic friend who quoted me $350 in labor to replace the rack and pinion and gasket on the valve cover. Just wondering if this is a fair price? He works on cars independently so it would not include the cost of an alignment.

2023.04.01 13:31 Mind_Explorer The used car market is ridiculous! Buy new or used?

So I have a 2007 Nissan Murano SL. I love the way it rides it's had a lot of problems. My trusted mechanic sent me to a transmission guy after my check engine light came on for a second time in 2 months. The transmission guy says my transmission is going bad and it's going to be a $7,700 fix. I thought about getting a second opinion but it's a 16-year-old car and has other issues. Might as well get another one.
I don't want to drive any old thing. I looked for vehicles in a similar class as the Murano (Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4) but they're all 25 to 30K used. And some of them 6-8 years old.
I fully fund my TSP(401k), Roth IRA and HSA. With what's left over I invest $100 a month in two index funds.
I have $18,000 I can put down on a car. I have about $4,000 in the vacation fund so I can stretch if I had to. But I haven't been on vacation in years.
Dave Ramsey recommended CarMax among other places to get a used car. I'm pretty sure they mark up their cars but for good reason. You can return it within 30 days. Plus they give you $4,000 mile warranty.
Salary: $130,000.
Debt: None.
Index funds: $200 a month.
Emergency fund: $25 a week.
Vacation fund: $20 a week.
General savings: $400 a month.
I'm a single 45 year old male, with no kids, if it matters. I have about $200 left over after contributing to all my funds and expenses.
I live in North Virginia (Alexandria) in the D.C. region. They have a property tax on vehicles here. The newer your car is the higher the tax. The taxed the car loses value.
Should I get new or used?

2023.04.01 02:28 JTeiger What are some consistent problems with different car brands?

So I will be getting a newer car later this year. I have been doing my research and asking some car savvy people I know. So far, from what I hear, Nissan is crap with transmissions as well as some Fords. Hyundai engines are questionable. Chevys are hit or miss with a whole host of issues.
Was wondering if anyone could give me a breakdown of issues that are common for certain car brands.
For when I do get a car, I would prefer a sedan or compact. Something with good mileage, under 100,000 miles. Not too concerned with how fast or flashy it is. Mazda, Toyota and Honda seem to be the brands with the most consistent reliability but any advice at all would be great!

2023.04.01 02:26 smacdad Shifting issue comes and goes

I have a 2009 Chevy Cobalt with a manual transmission that had the clutch replaced about 50k miles ago. A couple of years ago the clutch needed to be pushed further and further before it would engage until I couldn't shift into gears without a lot of effort. I brought it to the shop and they wanted to replace the clutch again for to much money to be worth it (the car has over 330k miles on it). After letting it sit for 10 months I started it to move it and the clutch was perfectly fine. I drove it for a little over a month before it started getting worse again. Let it sit for another 5 months and now it's fine. What could it be? I don't think a mechanical issue would come and go like this.

2023.03.31 15:31 Charles0nline I drove 400 miles in a C8 Corvette Z51

Pictures: https://imgur.com/a/lH06Blb
A year ago I rented my childhood dream car R35 Nissan GT-R Black Edition for my birthday. I liked it so much I ended up buying one less than 6 months later. This year on my birthday I rented a C8 Corvette Z51. The big difference is I didn't have nearly as much enthusiasm for the C8 as I did the GT-R. I saw a C8 pre production car in person and always felt the design was a bit off for a corvette. Even once they started landing and now you see them everywhere. I never quite warmed up to it. I was mostly renting it out of curiosity and also to see if it'd make me excited for the Z06. The corvette I rented was a 2022 and just had the Z51 package without MagRide. It had a very low rent interior, tons of plastics, which really was the most corvette thing about it. The corvette configurator puts it at around a $73k MSRP with destination.
I drove 400 miles over two days in the C8 doing all kinds of driving but, mostly spirited driving as reflected in my 14 MPG Average.
The C8 is an amazing car. As a platform it blew me away. It was way more approachable that I expected. There's so much grip and it's so neutral feeling coming into and out of corners. I'd run the same corners over and over again sometimes bringing it a bit more speed or getting on the power a bit earlier coming out of corners. It never seemed bothered. All while making me feel like I was totally in control. I couldn't comfortably push this car anymore than I did. I just kept wanting to drive it and explore its behavior. I had no complaints with Z51 suspension, I really enjoyed the seating position, and front end visibility. The transmission is very fast and seamless. I could easily drive it everyday.
There's some parts of the car that felt disconnected. I didn't really feel the presence of the engine and the disconnected feel is only made worse by the engine sound playing through the speakers. Outside of the cabin the exhaust sounds glorious which is a shame because I hear almost none of it inside the car. The steering is very quick and the car is eager to respond but, in most driving situations it's very numb and doesn't feel like it's connected to the front end. The Sport and Track modes for the steering were too artificially heavy all the time. I left the steering in Tour mode even though it's "drive with your pinky" light, at least it got slightly heavier as you loaded it up in corners.
The C8 Z51 does make me excited to maybe one day drive a Z06 but, unless the engine is more present in the driving experience, the C8 Z51 has all the cornering performance I could use as a street car at $40k MSRP less. It's also no slouch in a straight line. Without Launch control I managed a best 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds by easing into the gas and manually pulling the paddles. With the extra cash over a Z06, I'd be curious to see what a cammed C8 with some stiffer motor mounts sounds and feels like.
I don't have a ton of seat time in anything comparable to the C8 but, comparing it to my GT-R. The GT-R feels a lot faster in a straight line but, not as composed in the corners. I'd have a lot more understeer or oversteer trying to emulate the C8. Which really shocked me considering cornering performance is what impressed me on my drive with the GT-R a year ago but, that could be due to the nearly 5 year old Bridgestone RE070R tires on my GT-R vs the new Michelin PS4S on the C8. On equal tires I'm sure it'd be a different story. The GT-R has much better steering feel and weighting. It is also much more raw and visceral; there's significantly more NVH in the GT-R but, they both have rattly interiors. Considering the C8s starting MSRP, it definitely takes a page out of the GT-Rs handbook of being a relatively attainable and everyday super sports car.
I was really surprised how much I ended up liking the C8, I thought I was someone who put a high emphasis on steering and mechanical feel but, it offers very little of that and I loved racking up miles in it. It's given me an existential crisis and made me wonder.. what do I really know about myself??

2023.03.31 15:16 mr_no_name412 Nissan Altima CVT transmission noise

My grandparents have a 2008 Altima, about 60k miles, and well maintained. I used to be an aircraft mechanic and I am basically the family mechanic for vehicles for basic maintenance. I don’t have the knowledge and skill set to completely rip apart motors and transmissions, but basic upkeep and maintenance, I am more than competent to complete in the driveway.
They asked me to look at the transmission of their car. If you have the windows up and the radio off, there is an ever so soft, humming or light grinding noise when driving and you let your foot off the gas to coast. The transmission cycles very smoothly, but they are concerned about this ever so soft noise. You cannot feel any vibrations in the steering wheel or the shifter and like I said, you can only barely hear it with complete silence. From what I found online, there was a maintenance bulletin posted by Nissan about this noise in which they said it was normal, but it didn’t quite describe the same experience. I told them I think the transmission is perfectly fine. They took the car to a mechanic shop who attempted to diagnose the problem. They agreed they could hear the noise as well, but could not diagnose anything at all. They are still worried.
Should there be any cause for concern?

2023.03.31 13:21 Scoobydddddddd Nuremberg 2.0

The events surrounding "Covid-19" represent perhaps the greatest crime ever committed against the human race.
Because so many would-be "leftists" foolishly supported lockdowns and mandates, and because we went right from Covid fever to Russia/Ukraine fever, there has been no real push for accountability. Prominent leftists such as Noam Chomsky, Naomi Klein and John Pilger were all on board the Covid train; how do we deal with the fact that these heroes of the left failed us so badly? If we don't come to terms with what happened, what is to stop it from happening again?
"Covid-19" involved, in the first place, "lockdowns" -- a term borrowed from prison lingo. According to Oxfam, lockdowns drove hundreds of millions of people into extreme poverty and starvation. Of course they don't put it in those terms; they blame it on the "pandemic," but by now most of us understand what that really means -- it means the response to the "pandemic." I put the word pandemic in quotation marks because Covid-19 does not actually qualify as such. At least it wouldn't have prior to 2009, when the World Health Organization curiously removed the "highly lethal" qualification. Covid-19 is just a bad cold for 99.8 percent of the population, and even according to official stats the average age of death from the disease is higher than average life expectancy. While everyone is debating whether the virus came from a lab we seem to have forgotten this minor fact: if the media hadn't told us we were in a "pandemic" we wouldn't even have noticed.
This was not a matter of "good intentions gone awry." It was fully understood by the people who enacted Covid-19 "mitigation efforts" that they would produce the most dire of consequences.
See No, Lockdown Instigators Do Not Deserve the Benefit of the Doubt:
“As former UN Assistant Secretary-General Ramesh Thakur has documented in scrupulous detail, the harms that lockdowns would cause were all well-known and reported at the time they were first adopted as policy in early 2020. These included accurate estimates of mass deaths due to delayed medical operations, a mental health crisis, drug overdoses, an economic recession, global poverty, hunger, and starvation.
“Yet regardless, for reasons we’re still only beginning to understand, some key scientists, health officials, national security officials, media entities, international organizations, billionaires and influencers advocated the broad imposition of these unprecedented, devastating policies from the earliest possible date, ostensibly to stop or slow the coronavirus as the CCP claims to have done in Wuhan, while censoring any contrary opinions, spinning a false illusion of consensus amongst an unknowing public.”
It was FULLY UNDERSTOOD that "lockdowns" would accomplish absolutely nothing in terms of "stopping the spread" of the glorified cold known as "Covid-19," yet these measures were enacted anyway. If people want to blame this on "incompetence" that's their prerogative, but if I murder somebody I'm pretty sure I don't get to say "oops, I was incompetent" as a legal defense. Now multiply that by about a billion. It's crucial to understand that lockdowns were not a matter of "playing it safe" -- it seemed that way for the laptop liberal class ("hey cool, I can stay home and order Uber Eats"), but for the other 90 percent of the population it was an absolute nightmare. The precautionary principle is often invoked as a justification for lockdowns, but as noted by the signers of the Great Barrington Declaration, caution would have entailed not turning society upside down.
The Nuremberg Code
Apparently doctors are no longer taught about the Nuremberg Code. Too many lessons sponsored by big Pharma perhaps. It was created after WWII to prevent the sort of hideous human experimentation that occurred in Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.
Unfortunately the Nuremberg Code is not codified into the laws of most countries and was never really respected. We can see this clearly in the human radiation and "mind control" experiments of the US government. Those atrocities were conducted secretly, however; with the Covid-19 experimental gene therapies, it is all out in the open.
This is the greatest medical experiment in human history. It may even turn out to be the greatest atrocity in human history. We don't know -- there are no long-term studies on the effects of these drugs. And that's rather the point.
Here again we can say that it was known from the beginning that these experimental products had no proven effectiveness. Even as the injections were being foisted on the public it was reported by Forbes that they had no demonstrated ability to prevent infection or transmission. It has long been understood that vaccinating against a cold is basically impossible. NPR reported that both Pfizer and Moderna had eliminated their control groups in their fake "studies," meaning that these drugs didn't even undergo proper Phase II testing.
Although it is now known that these drugs are completely useless (they have "no clinical benefit," as per leading cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough) in combatting "Covid-19" (a virus with, again, a 99.8 percent survival rate), even if they had worked as advertised it would have been a crime against humanity to coerce people into taking an experimental drug.
Every single person -- whether CEO or public "health" official -- who tried to coerce people into injecting these toxins should spend the rest of their lives behind bars.
I'm not a "law and order" type guy, I generally prefer the idea of rehabilitation rather than punishment, but I will gladly help build the prisons to incarcerate the likes of Bill Gates, Anthony Fauci, Justin Trudeau etc. These are monsters on par with the likes of Dr. Mengele and the "doctors" who worked in Japan's notorious Unit 731. In fact the "Nazi doctors" are minor criminals in comparison, they only killed a few hundred people.
The modern "left" is a total mess -- by design, I suspect. When Republicans seem sane in comparison you know something has gone very, very wrong.
I'm perfectly willing to forgive (and have forgiven) people who got caught up in the "Covid-19" hysteria and behaved badly; very few "Covidians" in my life have actually apologized, which is depressing in its own right, but it is what it is; people have a hard time admitting error, especially when their error caused harm. I do not expect Joe and Jane Q public to be particularly astute and discerning, and "Covid-19" represents perhaps the greatest psychological warfare campaign in history, so it's understandable that even highly intelligent people were led astray. Yes, I'm willing to forgive the likes of Chomsky and Klein, but first they have to apologize. If Tim Robbins can do it, so can you. Where did this idea come from that apologizing and correcting course is a sign of weakness? In many cases it shows strength: you're merely saying, "I'm more informed today than I was yesterday."
I will not extend this understanding to my "leaders," however. They do not allow me to behave like a criminal and I expect the same from them (doomed to disappointment, I know). Although I do not actually think a Nuremberg 2.0 will happen, it should be something we all demand.

2023.03.31 06:52 Inner_Horse_1351 Upgrading to a Toyota Yaris from a Jeep Liberty. Moral support needed please.

Hi all! I currently own a 2004 Jeep Liberty, 230,000km, bought for $2500 about 2 years ago. I had to replace the entire drive shaft in the first year in order to get the 4x4 working again, plus some other repairs that came up, like $400 to replace the water pump a couple weeks ago. Typical Jeep. I’m very nervous driving it these days because I’ve read many stories about the ball joints giving out randomly. Also the fuel economy is absolutely criminal, about 17L/100km (13mpg). I don’t drive much though so it hasn’t been a huge issue. Just feel guilty about guzzling so much gas. Anyway, it started leaking oil recently, as well as transmission fluid, which was kind of the final straw for me - so I started casually car searching and found a 2009 Toyota Yaris RS for $6500, 230,000km. (The car market is crazy in Alberta right now, I know.) Super pristine and clean inspection. Anywho, here are my reservations: - I’d be paying for the Yaris using student loans. 😬 But I assume I can get about $3000 for my Jeep because it has a few perks. - I’ve put a good chunk of change into my Jeep. - My family criticizing me for using student loans. (I’m not so worried because I have some savings besides the loans, and starting a full time job soon.)
So not a ton holding me back, and what’s really pushing me to do this is to just avoid owning my Jeep when it inevitably breaks down. I’m also terrified of being on the highway and something going wrong. Also it accelerates super slowly and the steering wheel has started vibrating more recently.
Sorry for rambling! If I could talk to my family about this stuff, I would do that instead, haha. Again this is just a moral support post, I’ve pretty much already made up my mind to buy the Yaris. I’ve don’t a lot of research on the model and they are very highly regarded and nearly indestructible.
Edit: I’m not taking OUT loans, I have unused loans.

2023.03.31 02:33 PopItNow Sound coming from front end only between 45-50mph?

Hey guys, so I own a 2015 nissan Murano AWD, and have been experiencing a noise only between 45-50mph.
It is a slight humming that is audible from within the cabin and it comes from the passenger side. I rotated all my tires a few months ago with no problems. Car drives straight, no bumpiness, no shaking.
I have noticed that everything sounds perfect up until 45mph and then it makes an audible hum that i can hear from inside the cabin and then as soon as I get past 50mph it goes away. It is only constant between 45-50mph.
I made sure it wasn't the engine by revving it and I can hear the engine seperate from this noise.
My thought was a bad wheel bearing but when I rotated tires I didn't feel any lose play or anything.
Is there any issues that could present themselves onlt between those 2 speeds?
Thanks for any help you guys can offer!
