Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue
When I drive down the road the front end clunks. If I gently pull the steering wheel to the left or right (just a half inch) the noise stops. Also, if I accelerate from a stop too quickly the entire car will shudder.
What is causing these problems?
Sounds like a bad cv shaft. If there is clicking while making a turn, 90% of the time you will need a new cv shaft. The shudder also denotes a bad cv shaft (front axle) Most axle repairs cost up to $400. If you are charged more, find a new mechanic. if the car feels like it floats back and forth (side to side) Be sure to check the control arm bushings. If you are not sure how to inspect them, visit a service center. Any problem in the suspension should be addressed immediatley. Stay safe.
