Hey guys, Ive got a 98 EL Fairmont GHIA, Now tonight when i was driving it, it started making a whineing noise, its defientaly not the diff, its up front somewhere, may even be coming through the stereo i thought, but does it when stereo is switched off, Just wondering if this is a common thing or if anyone has come across it before, any help would be awesome, cheers

Power steer fluid is sweet, that reminds me tensior bearing is a bit rattly, may be getting worse, may i also add it only whines on de-acceleration and when crusing with foot just resting on gas, when i accelarate the noise dissapers

Front wheel bearings? Mine made a whining noise when I was decelerating, especially downhill...also made a bit of a whirring noise while turning at high speeds (100km/hr on the freeway at an interchange).

phong =P~
