Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue
When driving my 98 Olds Intrigue, I can hear a pulsating drone sound. When I apply the brakes I can feel a pulsating in the brake petal that corresponds to the sound. At first I assumed a bad tire but after rotating the tires around the car and drive testing I did not notice the sound moving as the wheels were changed in position. I then jacked up the car and tried to "wiggle" each wheel to see if there was any play. I found that the front passenger side wheel had some play and then assumed that the wheel hub and bearing needed to be replaced. I replaced the bearing and hub and now the sound has gotten much quieter. The problem is that I can still hear the sound (barely) and the brake still pulsates in correspondence with the sound. Also if another hub/bearing is to blame I can't hear the sound loud enough now to locate the hub/bearing that still needs replacing. Ant advice or possible diagnosis would be appreciated.
On that car, it's probably one of the brake rotors, if the wheels are torqued unevenly, or too tight, they warp easily.
