Question about 2003 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

The problem I posted earlier is on a 1996 Buick LeSabre.

There is a loud whining, which is rather high-pitched, coming from the passenger side, just behind the firewall under the hood. This noise is louder inside the car, and only stops when we remove the cable from the battery. As soon as the cable is put back on the battery, the whining starts again.

the other thing could be the belt is loose and not letting the alternator

and if thats not it its the belt

Loud brake noise in 97 buick lesabre


When you had the drums off, did you inspect the shoes for excessive wear? And How do the drums look? Are they grooved? Can you be more specific about the loud noise. Does it sound like a grinding noise, or a screeching or pulsating noise. Is it lower pitch or high pitch?

Whining noise progressively gets louder with speed


One wheel turning faster than the other is normal if both wheels are off the ground. If one wheel is dragging when the other wheel is on the ground, it could be brakes or a wheel hub bearing.
Usually if the noise happens on right turns, the left hub bearing is failing, and vice versa.

My 1999 Buick Lesabre makes a whining and sometimes thumping noise when I make turns at low speeds. What could it be? It became worse after a slow turn from a driveway. At that time it made a very loud...


Sounds like a combination of a power steering pump (whine) AND the CV axle (loud clunk noise). Check the fluid level in the power steering pump. The pump is located on the passenger's side towards the firewall. Kind of hard to get at but unscrew the cover and there is a small/short dipstick there. See what it reads. Add Power Steering fluid (NOT transmission fluid, as needed. Don't overfill)
I'd get the "thumping noise" taken care of IMMEDIATELY. Could be a serious problem. Qualified front end shop should be able to diagnose and give you an estimate of cost. Last time I had one done it was about $300 parts and labor...
