Just a possible check is first check your power steering fluid. When it runs low it can make the front end do many weird things. Also check if the front rotors are very warm. If I am correct to understand you have a 96 not a 2002. If so, they have dual piston calipers, which sometimes will hang one piston and apply the brake pad at an angle which will make them drag and wobble the calipers and rotors and give you a rough feel through the wheel. Hope this helps.

Whining noise at speed 35/40 left front side wheel 2000 infinity qx4


Try driving at 35/40, so you can hear the noise, try swerving (just a little) to the left, if the noise goes away, when you swerve, you most likely have a bad wheel bearing on that side.

Whining noise from front of 2003 impala.higher


Sounds like it could be the wheel bearing. Jack up the car, and see if the tire feels loose when pushing in and out at the top and bottom of the tire. That;s the most obvious way to check. But many times, the bearing is tight, but still bad.

Check your power steering fluid. If low it whines and is related to engine speed.

Good luck, TD

Apparently the whine is car speed related and not engine speed. I'm surprised that you didn't say anything about checking the wheel bearings?

The pattern you describe is consistent with an alternator going bad. Maybe the fields are already rubbing together. Test it this way: Start the car and leave on idle, when the whine is worse, then start using up electricity, by increasing the demand. Turn on AC, then lights, then full blower and then high beams. If there is a change in the whine, then either alternator or voltage regulator is the culprit. When a compressor pulley bearing is bad, noise shifts just by turning AC on and off.

The blower motor whines,is slow to start up or doesn't run at all


The sad news is that the new motor will probably whine also. The best way to fix the whine is to use the switch to select different speeds. It is is whining at one speed, it usually will not whine at a different speed, at least for a while, or until you turn a corner.
Speed issues are usually related to the switches resistor pack which is easy to replace.
