Hi,
Sounds like a wheel bearing. Typically when you take weight off bad bearing noise goes away. To “replace bearing” you will need a press to get it off and on. If it's a rhythmic pulsing or growling noise, that speeds up or slows down along with the travel speed of the truck and gets worse when the vehicle is turned, most likely it is a wheel bearing. If it goes away on a straight, it's 99% a wheel bearing.
When you turn left you load up the right bearing, and when you turn right you load up the left bearing. So if it's doing it when you turn left, I'd say right wheel bearing. As long as the steering wheel is at an angle it will make the noise. Only when the vehicle is heading straight will it stop.
Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

I have a 98 Oldsmobile Intrigue the code c1226 and c1233 what does these codes mean.the track off ,anti-lock,service soon light are on what does this mean


C1226 Right Front Excessive Wheel Speed Variation
C1233 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal Missing
You could have a bad sensor on the left front wheel or bad wiring. Have it checked by a mechanic. Your anti-lock braking system is probably disabled under these conditions.

Service brake assist, service stabilitrak


check the wires to the sender units on the front wheels are not broken or loose . The ABS and the stable track use the same sender units . Check that the wheel bearings are serviceable and adjusted properly as this will allow the rotor to touch the sender unit if they are loose.

Abs light comes on


Have codes checked, most common is a failed left or right wheel speed sensor , part of front wheel hub/bearing assembly.

Have replaced the passenger side wheel assembly to correct the grinding noise. The hub assembly did not move freely but was stiff and hard to move, Put on a new one and now the Traction System light comes...


I need a little info, year make and model. It sounds like you could have two bad wheel hubs, not uncommon. The abs light may have come on due to an in proper connection of deteriorated wire. A definite problem in the northeast.

Traction control light flickers and the system growls. Then ABS light comes on.......


I would look at, or have looked at the wheel bearings. Most vehicles have the wheel sensors as part of the wheel bearings, and if one fails, you will get ABS and traction control issues.

2003 Chevy Impala Service Traction Sytem show on Dash


I can't answer the question about the gas fumes, but I had the same problem last year with the "Service Traction Sysytem" message and the Trac and ABS lights coming on in my Impala. Mine turned out to be because of a bad wheel bearing, that was causing the ABS and traction system not to work. I'm not sure if you've experienced this, but another thing that would happen with mine was that I would go to brake and have a hard time depressing the brake pedal, almost like it was pushing back. That is the point when the Trac and ABS lights came on.

Anti lock brakes


you need to have your brakes checked on the front and also have them check wheel bearing on that side. when a car sits overnight in humid conditions the brake rotors will rust over lightly, that normally is removed off of rotor after first brake application. it shouldnt do it after you keep driving. abs does make noises though when it is working, sliding, so I would pop my hood and check for abs computer. It has brake lines and electrical connection going to it. Im not saying its bad but just look at its location and see if the sound of it functioning/location seems to make it sound like it is left wheel

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue


An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
