Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight

1 Answer

Fairly loud metal on metal scraping sound when I start my 1996 oldsmobile 98. Something that the belt wraps around that sits under and in front of the engine seems to be what is causing the problem. I can't even figure out what the part is. It's definitely not the alternator but it looks fairly similar from the belt side. The other side has what looks like pipes and hoses coming out of it. Any suggestions?

Try to better describe the noise.
Is it a
scraping of metal
grinding / rubbing
high pitched shriek like a drive belt slipping
Is it
underneath the body
under the hood
in the aircon
when you pull into gear
when you pull away
etc
Do a bit of detective work and come back.

I have a 2001 Silhouette. I have a noise in the front end that sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. It increases in loudness with speed. At low speed it can't be heard at all but at around 50 to 60 it...


I have a 2002 Olds van and it also makes a noise under the front driver wheel well. Mine was mostly when I hit potholes or large dips causing the shocks to compress. The problem is a metal to metal contact between a bushing lip and the suspension. On this side, the bushing is manufactured opposite of the passenger side. The lip is up and causes the two metal pieces to rub. I had to grind down the lip so it would be like the other side. All is better now. I'm not sure if this is where your noise is coming from since it gets louder with speed. I would assume yours is a bearing. Sorry.
