Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix
The car ---2002 Grandprix 3.8 engine makes a loud howling noise while driving it starts after 15- 20 miles a hour, the faster you go the louder it is. The tires are good and have just been rotated. The sound seems to come from the front left or maybe the center. It idles very smooth, the rpm's are where they should be for driving.The car drives very smooth with no steering problems. Any ideas would be appreciated. From Indiana
Well did the noise start after the tires were rotated?could be choppy tires,,,if not ,i strongly think it sounds like a bad wheel bearing,,,,if you drive and while its making the noise turn left and right quick and see if the noise gets louder and which way turning makes it louder,,if you turn leftand it gets louder its usually the right wheels bearing as you are putting load on it, if it makes the noise louder while turning right its the left wheel bearing,,,got it

Does the sound change when you turn the wheel a little side to side while driving??if it does i sounds like it might be a wheel bearing going bad,the easiest way to check for this is to jack up the front of the car on a level surface and put it in neutral and spin the wheels one at a time by hand and listen or feel for a roughness coming from the bearing,you can also grab the wheel at the 12 oclock and 6 oclock positions and see if there is any movement up and down with the bearings,hope this helps
