Hub, bearing, tranny? Stuck in 3rd/4th gear when I put into Drive 03 GA/SE

My other Grand Am has been running shiznity as of late.

I have Trac, ABS and Service Engine lights all on. My OBDII isn't picking up any codes and I have one of the nicer ones that is reliable.

My problem is when I put the car into drive I have to floor it to get it to move. It's like it's stuck in 4th gear. I also can heer a whining noise coming from the font wheels.

I saw a few people saying that bearings or the entire Hub assemb is usually what causes all three lights. BUT I don't think that would cause a shifting problem........
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!HELP!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

P.S. Finally got around to uploading my updated pics of the 99 GA/GT. Painted hood and spoiler, added struts and springs lowered 3 inches. Check her out..... http://www.grandamgt.com/forum/showp...8&postcount=33

Is the sound you hear like a kind of annoying wind noise from the wheels?

If so that would be your HUBS change both.

Incase of the shifting you might have a bad solenoid(sp)?

It could also be the clutch packs slipping during the gearing.
