Q: Helicopter noise coming from drivers side tire

asked by on

When I'm not hitting the gas or when I'm braking a helicopter type noise comes from the drivers side wheel I believe. It was quite but now it is very loud. Should I risk driving it 30 miles to my mechanic?

My car has 154000 miles.

Hi there. This sounds like it could a serious issue with the potential to be a safety related issue. There's no true way to tell whether driving the car in its current condition is safe or not. However, I would play it on the safe side and not risk the drive. The noise could be a wheel bearing or axle coming apart; possible brake components which is a definite safety risk. I suggest having a qualified technician perform an inspection to avoid a potential safety issue and avoid replacing unnecessary parts.
