Question about 2000 GMC New Sierra 1500

Open Question

Rear suspension squeak/rubbing sound

Upon acceleration from a stop I hear a squeak/rubbing sound from the rear suspension. The truck also feels like the axle shifts forward at the same time. I have watched the suspension work during take off with my wife in the truck so I could try to determine what was wrong. It looks like the leaves of the springs are binding a bit just prior to the sound then it releases. What can I do to fix this problem. I am a capable mechanic, but I am stumped by this one. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Rear A/C not working on my 2000 GMC Safari

I think that there is 2 solutions:

1. Check if there is enough gas.

2. Maybe you have to change the gas, maybe you put gas that don't fix to your car.

SOURCE: 1995 Jimmy 4d 4wd rear lift gate will not open -

I was able to get two wedges between the glass and the plastic trim. From that I used a scope to see inside and find the mechanism to release the window. Look for the one piece of plastic in the mechanism. The level has to be pushed toward the driver side of the car. Once I got the glass open, I removed the handle, and two screws from each side of the trim and removed the trim.

Once the trim was removed I had a small opening and could see the problem. The end of the latch has a small blue plastic (why plastic??) catch that broke.

Rather than taking the door apart and finding a replacement, I heated a screw driver and made a slot in the plastic. Next I used a heavy duty zip tie and connected the two pieces (plastic catch and metal part that opens the latch). I left some slack in the connection and all works great.

Not sure how long this will last, but for now I have the back opening. I will look at replacing the plastic piece, but not sure if a total new mechanism is needed.

SOURCE: 2004 GMC Yukon Denali Awd humming sound in front of truck

The Denali's are really susceptible to front dif. wear and failure. Because it is AWD, the front dif is always working unlike a 4WD. GM, in order to lighten up the front end built the front dif in aluminum. If it was the same as the rear, it would be bullet proof, but much heavier. After about 80,000 miles it is common to have bearings failing. Remove the drain plug which happens to be magnetic. You may see more than just the normal fine filings. You will likely see larger chunks of metal some of which is not even magnetic but will drain out with the oil. You are likely looking at a $1500 rebuild. It will get much louder and run for a long time before it really goes south.

The Hondas do have at the back suspension arms which are holding the wheels,Big suspension bushing,which when they snap off or cracked,are causing clank noises because are not holding enough the rear axle. on the other hand the vehicle loose the tracking as a result to cause wear and tear of the rear tires as well. Ask from your local mechanic to examine your car.

I have 2005 Cadillac SRX 86,000 Miles. I hear a grinding noise when I accelerate and feel a bump when driving on hyway, No sound when coasting, stoping or ideling which to me would eliminate engine or...


Grinding on acceleration, rhythmic thump on the highway... might be a bad u-joint in a CV shaft or rear drive shaft. Put the transmission in neutral, put blocks in front of the front wheels jack up the back end of the vehicle and put jackstands under the frame (do not rely on the jack alone to hold it up!). Turn the rear wheels by hand while listening and feeling for slop or roughness. Crawl under the vehicle and check for play in the drive shaft bearings, then rotate the drive shaft by hand to check for rough bearings in the u-joints. Inspect the fender wells and suspension linkage for foreign objects that may be rubbing or bumping on the wheels. Inspect the tires for uneven wear, incipient blowouts (blisters) or other problems.
If you don't find anything in the rear end, lower the vehicle, block the rear wheels, jack up the front, and repeat the check on the front wheels.
Check your transmission fluid as directed in the owner's manual. It should be at the proper level and clean, with no burned odor. If there is a problem with the transmission fluid, the noise could be coming from the transmission.

Squeak coming from rear of car could it be brakes?


Any noise to be identified need a perfect OBSERVATION of the spot of generation. Have the test drive with someone at the wheels while you confirm the spot - front or rear. now touch the brakes to see if the noise cuts off or increases. Now push the car vigorously up and down to check the suspension. If noise is heard it can be the suspension. Now it will be good to have the car up a ramp to have a first hand check on the suspension, the links, the bushes. make sure there is no metal touching the mudguards/ Tyre's.
Now jack up the rear wheel one by one and turn them to hear any squeaking. if so remove tyre and wheel assembly to clean and reset the assembly.
If not the rear suspension links /bushes/ shock-absorbers must be removed and reset.

My 2003 Volkswagen Passat makes a terrible nolise in the rear end when getting in and out of the car, what is that? The noise is like a squeaking, rubbing noise


This would most likely be suspension related, but to find it you need to safely jack up the car and actuate the suspension in the same way, to make the squeak, Look for shiny spots where something may be rubbing, look closely and listen at rear shocks and springs...
