Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette
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.
