Q: Q: Wheel bearing

asked by on

It just started making sounds as I turn I figure it's the wheel bearing. I'm 50 minute from my house am I okay to drive it?

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If you drive it then other problems may happen to the front end. I recommend towing it to where you need to go or to a local shop. If you continue to drive, you may cause additional damages to the vehicle. After getting the car to a safe location, I recommend having a mechanic inspect the sound and replacing your wheel bearing if necessary.
