The fluid in the versa trak AWD in the rear is old and needs to be drained and refilled. After you drain and refill it, make a bunch of sharp left and right hand turns, then drive it for 10 minutes. Drain and refill it for the second time and problem solved. Use only versa trak fluid available at any GM dealership. Your vehicle takes 2 bottles (16.9 oz) each change. There is a TSB at the Buick dealership on this now.

Make sure that when the rear diff is serviced the posi addtitive is added and the buick is driven in a figure 8 for 5 minutes in either direction, and the rear diff plates should release. (Gm tech service bulletin) thanks Ray

Hi. I own a 2004 Buick Rendezvous and I must say, it's the best car I've ever owned. Recently, like within the last 2 months I've had a groaning noise with every left turn. My husband filled...


he filled the PS fluid? it was low? If so it has a leak somewhere, usually the high pressure line. the rattle could be anything, have the front end and steering linkage checked. tie rods, sway bar links, ect.

Groaning noise from rear of vehicle when turning cxl awd


Our Rendezvous groans, too. Our mechanic told us it was NOT a wheel bearing, but the rear differential. They recommended that we take it to a reputable transmission garage for service.

I have a sound in my rear part of my buick rendezvous when I try to park and turn the wheel almost to maximun. What can be that.


Hello: If your truck is a all wheel drive it could be the rear differential making noise. You will have to troubleshoot it more. Try turning max either way in an open parking lot if you hear a humming from the rear you have a problem. Sometimes you can service it but it will only be a temp repair.
