Annoying chirping noise coming from front end...
I think I posted this question before but I 'm going to post it again...I have this really annoying fast 2-3 second "chirping" noise/vibration that comes and goes seemingly somewhere in the front end - sounds and feels more like the front drivers side somewhere, maybe a wheel or wheels. With the windows open that is definitely where you can hear it coming from - the front driver side wheel area. Oh, I have a 1992 Bonneville SE with EXACTLY 60,250 original miles on it.
This happens usually and always when speeding up or slowing down anywhere around 30-40 mph (sometimes it doesn't matter at what speed but I've not been as conscious of it happening at faster constant highway speeds although it does) and usually always when the car is changing gears while my foot is on the gas pedal (naturally).
What I have also noticed is that right before the chirping is heard and definitely felt, there is a quick but easily identifiable muffled kind of "whomp" rubbing noise that'* heard. Along with this sporadic chirping, there is alsways a vibration felt in the steering wheel when it happens.
Does anyone have any idea what the hell is might be? My mechanic said something about a torque converter symptom and I've also heard that it very well might be the front wheel bearings going...Anyone else ever had this problem and if so, what was the exact problem and resulting remedy. THANKS!
