This sounds like ring and pinion noise, new bearings and a gear set will cure the problem.

I have a 2003 GMC Yukon SLT 2WD. I am getting a clattering noise while slowing down. The slower I go the slower the clattering. When it first started, it would go away as soon as you press the...


Two possibilities come to mind with his type of noise and they both require attention NOW! To check the vehicle park on a level surface with the vehicle off and in park (you may need help). Slide under the vehicle ahead of the rear tire so you can see the connection of the driveshaft to the rear end. Then rock the vehicle back and forth with the tire and look at the u-joint connection. If the rear end yoke is moving more than the driveshaft the u-joint needs replacing. If the joint is extremely bad you can sometimes grab the driveshaft and wiggle it. If the vehicle rocks back and forth and there is little or no movement in the drive shaft and you hear clunking in the rear end there can be serious trouble in the rear end. Either condition will require some mechanical skill to fix. I hope this helps.

High Pitched Whine


A high pitched whine like that indicates a bad bearing. Water pump, power steering pump, accessory belt slipping, alternator bearing, or in the worst case scenerio, Transmission pump.

Whenever I drive I continue to hear a loud roaring noise. Is this wheel bearing problem or is it something else


Quite often it is a bad wheel bearing, a lot of chevy's are notorious for them. A wheel bearing will usually create a growling type noise that is more prominent at around 40-60MPH. If its a wheel bearing you should notice a change in pitch when turning in one direction, for example if you have a bad right side wheel bearing it will be noisy driving straight ahead, then get louder when turning LEFT. If you turn right the noise softens. The weight distribution of the front end will be greater on the right side when turning left. Of course the works in the opposite direction. If the noise remains constant going straight and turning it could be a bad tire. Visually check the tire for pressure and bulges in the side wall. You didn't mention what type or model vehicle you have, because in some cases the rear wheel bearing could be causing the noise.

Rear end noise on right side at 48-53 mph. new tires and brakes are fine. any problems with rear axle bearings on this model 2002 xl-7 4x4


No, have not heard of there being a problem with these bearings. But yours could have a bad bearing just the same, jack up the right rear and turn the tire/wheel by hand, feeling for any scruffiness in the turn. Then jack up the left side and do the same, feeling for any difference. This will tell you if you do have a bad bearing. Hope this helps.

the jerking and noise you are experiencing is the drive chain and bearings in the transfer case also you may want to check the end play in both front and rear pinion bearings and yokes
