as far as the humming noise and the grinding noise it sounds like your power steering pump is either out of fluid or gone bad completely. as for the muffler? ?MAYBE? the strain from the bad power steering pump is overworking the engine causing it to make noise? answer definetly a bad steering pump as for muffler, the sound can be transfred and magnified on a car, replace steering pump before bothering about the muffler sound may be gone

The question you are asking is the same as a question like: Is building a house? or Is driving a car? You can built a house, you can drive a car and you can surely sing or hum a melody! Is singing or humming a melody, the act itself is not! But depending on what you are humming or what you are singing, the part that comes out of your mouth can be a melody...

Several things could do that but the first one that comes to mind is a bad front wheel bearing/hub assembly.

The muffler is an important element of a vehicle's exhaust system. The purpose of a muffler is to reduce the noise and emissions that occur when your vehicle emits gases during operation. Similar to other parts of an automobile, a muffler can go bad and need to be repaired or replaced. An ineffective muffler gives warning signs to let you know when it is time to replace it. Knowing the symptoms of a bad muffler can help you diagnose the problem and eliminate other potential issues. Prolonging muffler repairs can lead to expensive maintenance cost in the future.Noise From Your MufflerAn engine produces a great deal of noise when it is in operation. A primary sign that your muffler needs repairing is a loud noise that comes from your vehicle when you start and drive it. Generally, your car will make a low rumbling noise that can escalate to a severe knocking noise if not treated. At times, a muffler may make a hissing or rattling sound at the onset of a problem. If you notice a continual noise when your start and drive your car, you should take your vehicle to an automotive mechanic shop to have your muffler inspected. In some cases, a muffler may need a simple repair and not a total replacement.Inspect the MufflerAnother way to detect a muffler issue is to physically inspect the muffler. The muffler is located underneath a vehicle near the rear. A muffler covered with rust or soot may be an indication that it needs to be repaired. You should also look for any holes in the muffler. A hole in a muffler needs to be repaired quickly because vehicles emit dangerous gases when in operation. A vehicle may also experience performance issues when the muffler is bad. A rough idle or excessive smoke from the tailpipe can be a sign that the muffler needs to be repaired. Driving with a bad muffler can make for an uncomfortable experience, so getting it repaired quickly will not only save you money, but reduce aggravation as well.

Unscrew the screw at the bottom of the muffler. Then take a hammer and a flat head screw driver and hit the muffler head until it comes out. Otherwise call a mechanic.

Your bad muffler might be part of the reason your check engine light comes on. Usually, your bad muffler causes something else to go wrong and that causes your check engine light to come on. Problems cascade.

The tube under a car is two things: 1. The exhaust pipe comes from the engine to the muffler, and 2. The tail pipe goes from the muffler to the rear (usually) of the vehicle.

I paid a total of 580 Canadian dollars. They had to do some complicated cutting and installing when attaching the muffler. The muffler cost just over 300, but tax, labor and an extra part really killed my wallet. A muffler with a hole in it will usually cost you lots in gas and you can fail your emissions test. An awful expense when it comes to older cars.

The smoke from your muffler has a smell because what is coming out of the muffler is the products of the incomplete combustion of your fuel. Some of those products are gases and vapors that have color and some are dark but small particles - that is what you call smoke. But some of what comes out are various chemicals that your nose detects as odors.

The only thing I can think of is a wool like packing material that may have been used in the muffler. Never seen this myself. I suggest you seek out a good muffler shop.

Could be many things but a front wheel bearing/hub assembly going bad comes to mind. Scalloped worn tires can give you a humming noise also.

Sorry to tell you this but, you more than likely have a blown head gasket. Stop driving the car immediately or you will destroy the engine. This must be fixed in order for the car to be drivable.
