    14 cruze making noises while driving

    So just yesterday I was heading home from school and noticed my car was making a odd noise, to me sounds like a bad wheel bearing. Kind of like a really fast ticking noise. It doesnt matter if i'm in gear or not and is more noticable at lower speeds. The only thing that changed was monday night I filled my tires up to 40 psi from 32psi. And it just started last night. has anyone else had a wheel bearing go bad on their car? I only have 10k miles on it so ill be taking it to the dealer when I have some time. Might stop by tonight to let them look at it tonight.

    I can put it in neutral(manual trans) and coast and it still makes the noise so the turbo wouldnt be whistling at that point.

    Stone or nail head In a tire? Or does it resonate through the frame of the car itself?

    My wheel bearings have always failed with a loud drone. I haven't heard of any going on the 1.4, but there were some that failed on the Diesels.

    I ran my hand across the tire looking for anything poking out but didnt fell anything. It does seem to resnoate through the car and is more of a drone(I couldnt think of the word earlier) I can hear tick or knock like sound in the drone though, and its consistent. doesnt change if i hit the brakes or turn. It does it all the time.

    Stop by your dealer and let them road test it with you on board.

    At this point, based solely on description, I'm thinking wheel bearing.
    They fail.....no real rhyme or reason....sometimes a pothole hurts them....but even that is speculation.
    As others posted, more often than not they go the life of the car, but again, not always.

    Good news though, as long as it's not a tire, there is no expense beyond time on your end.

    I think it is likely that you have picked up a nail or screw.
