Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Loud Vibration at all speeds

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy 4x4 which now has a LOUD vibration from the front end and it does not lessen up at any speed. I can feel it in the steering as well as from the floor boards. When I go into a slight right curve, it seems to lessen up a bit, but when it's a sharper curve, I get a more pronounced vibration. I've checked the pressure in the tires and although once I got the tires to the right pressure, it did lessen it, but not much. Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

A couple things here. 1.) You either have a tire out of balance. 2.) You need an alignment 3.) You have a tie rod getting ready to go. You can check the tie rod by jacking up one side and if you can wiggle the tire back and forth you have a bad inner tie rod. If you can wiggle the tire (hands at 12 and 6) and wiggle the tire in and out you have bad ball joints. The first two you will need to take it in to a shop and have them check your tires and alignment. Also you may want to have the shop check your wheel bearings. I hope this gives you some direction. Thanks for using FixYa!

Sincerely,

JC

1998 GMC Jimmy...4x4 / transmission issues. It started a few weeks ago with poor acceleration above 2500-3000 rpm in any gear. The engine doesn't red line, but it the truck doesn't feel like it is...


Lets take this piece by piece.
The 4x4 switch is defective.
A driveline vibration regardless of engine speed is usually a shaft or cv joint. To verify a visual inspection is necessary.
The poor acceleration in any gear is the begining of torque converter problems( stator or pump).As long as ATF level is correct.
I recommend having a transmission repair shop look this over and preform a pressure test of the main line of the transmission.(it may not be necessary if the condition of ATF is burnt). Good luck

Have grand caravan 2001 awd i get to 50 it starts vibrates think it might be carrier bearing after 50 it seems to lessen some no problem in front end what do u think


Most vibrations at speeds from 45mph to 55mph indicate tire balance problems. If there is no vibration outside this range have the tire balance checked. If there is a vibration that starts around 50mph and continues at higher speeds there could be a problem with the CV joint(s).

My 2002 Dodge Neon makes a loud, almost grinding noise in the front end which is worse in the morning and lessens as it drives and warms up. Hear the noise only at lower speeds. There is no vibration...


I'd say there's no grease left in the CV joint boots, if it's front wheel drive. Something you should check right away, as your car has about reached that age, and if you run it without grease in the boots, you'll eat up the joints in a big hurry, and that's costly and dangerous as well.
