    Default OT: 2001 Buick LaSabre Drive Noise.

    I have a noise that sounds like a small plane droning that changes
    pitch as speed increases.
    It starts at 20 MPH. It doesn't stop when I brake slightly or take it
    out-of-gear. Very low mileage...around 60K.
    Thanks for any ideas or where I might ask online.

    You might want to narrow it down a bit.
    Left, right, front, rear? Etc.
    More info is better.
    Then post it at: rec.autos.tech
    Almost no one read this group any more.
    The GM groups are just spam, griefers, and trolls.

    Wouldn't the noise change if you moved the wheel from side-to-side?
    It doesn't. You do notice pitch changes with only a slight increase
    or decrease of speed.
    Low mileage for a wheel bearing...but I suppose it could be.
