Hello everybody! I just found you guys today while searching for answers. I know you may not like the name but this is my first Pontiac after 7 straight Chrysler products. (my first was a Cuda, 18 years ago.)
Anyway, on to the unsolved. I have a 2000 SLE. Only mods are exhaust stuff. 41k miles. no problems until now.
When it hits about 35mph a whine starts coming from the front end, I swear it sounds like the sound mud tires make on a 4X4. The faster you go, the higher the pitch of the whine. I can't detect any vibration while it is hapening. I have looked all over the front end for loose plastic, rotated the tires front to back and basicly gone nuts for two days trying to figure it out.
The noise stops when you go around a curve to the left, but continues as always to the right.
I've thought maybe wheel bearings, but it doesn't sound like bad bearings I ever heard before. Plus it only has 41k miles. Kinda early for bearings.
Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.
