Oldsmobile Intrigue front end howl

Need more info...front end you say... A particular side? Is replaced tire the same as other 3 tires? hear it while driving, or braking, or both? Hear it more steering left or right or going around a corner?

Could be a front wheel/hub bearing is my only guess at this point. Howling or groaning could also mindicate a transmission problem.

Is in adjusting the headlight counterclockwise to the left or right

Counter clockwise is to the left, and that is referencing the top edge of what you are turning.

For example: If you put your hand on the top side of your tire while it is jacked up off of the ground, moving the top to the left causes the whoe tire to turn counterclockwise.

With headlights, it's useful to put something right in front of the vehicle, or park with the lights shining on the garage door so that you can watch then lower and rise as you turn the adjustment screw.
Good luck!

I've been told I need to replace my 1999 Maxima's front axles, but it was not "urgent". Upon inspecting my tire treads, I noticed that when I parked, the steering was turned to the left. Upon...

The alignment angles may off due to worn parts. The half shafts on the Maxima might be worn, as indicated by a clicking noise on turns. The camber and toe can be off caused by worn ball joints or tie rod ends ( which are connected to the rack and pinion), respectively, causing the wheels to appear to be 'toe out' as you describe in your problem.

Sometimes, the wheels will appear to be toe out compared to the body, but are in reality dead straight ahead according to the alignment machine which can measure angles down to a fraction of a degree.

Are you experiencing irregular tire wear, indicating poor alignment?

Before a computerized alignment can be performed, the front end parts should be tight for the various angles, including cast, camber, and toe.

The axles, are less of an issue, except worn ones can cause that notorious clicking and eventually lead to a break down in the drivetrain where the half shaft joint actualy breaks apart.

Also, a worn axle can cause the bearings in the hub to go bad if the axle is binding at all.

It's a good idea to have all of the front end parts as tight as possible.

Makes roaring sound when turning right...stops when turning left I think it's front right wheel bearing??????

coming from the front or back? If back, check your rear end fluid. If front, might be a universal. Bearings tend to hum or grind all the time, not just when turning

Loud popping sound when turning left

I recently had the same problem, it ended up being the front stabilizers and the drive shaft.

Clunking and shuttering 1998 Olds Intrigue

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.

Drive the car in a parking lot and make left and right hand turns.
If the noise goes away on either turn then the problem is a front hub bearing.
If the noise is still there, it could be possible front differential bearings.
