This noise is likely caused by your intermediate steering shaft. The issue is well documented among Aura owners. GM claims that the noise is not a problem as far as safety or vehicle function though they will attempt to repair if brought in under warranty. If out of warranty, you can safely ignore it as nuisance.

When we reverse back it doesn't move it just go front but not reverse and it makes noise what is the problem with it


Modulator valve on the drivers side on the side case of your transmission. Should be a couple of wires attached to it for easy locating.

Heard a clunk while driving diesel ford excursion now when drive and reverse don't work....any ideas what problem is?


If it is a four wheel drive check your tail shaft or drive line by securing the vehicles front wheels jack up the rear tires and in park try to rotate the drive line if you can hear the transmission sound like it is going into gear the transfer case could be damaged! If not a four wheel drive pull the transmission dipstick and look to see if the fluid is dark red or metallic grayish color if so then you're clutch disks inside the tyranny have been worn out and it needs to be rebuilt!

Wheel get locked up in 4x4


I know what they did!, and the only thing you can do is take it back to the dealer. They have put in a different diff ratio. jack up one side of your car with 4X4 rotate your wheels your front diff goes 5 revolutions and your rear may turn 4 or 6 turns, when your wheels turn at different rates it increases the load on your drive line, if your wheels don't slip you must break something

TAPPING NOISE, NOW IT WON'T GO INTO GEAR WITHOUT LOUD GRINDING NOISE AND ACTS LIKE TRANSMISSION WON'T ENGAGE TO DRIVE


If it is an automatic transmission, first check the fluid level. If it is low, fill it up and try it again. If the level is fine, then there is a bigger issue and you should seek a professional's help.

Auto transmission clunking noise when putting into reverse & foward or taking out


the noise is the free play in the side gears of the diff and is normal in a diff that has some miles
there is a problem if the pinion moves forward or back when turning the shaft
check for "U" joints as if they are failing you will get the noise when changing direction
other areas to check are suspension rubbers and transmission rubber mounts

the rod you mentioned is called linkage, yes it's posible, snow may have jammed up under the car and is stopping it from properly engageing, or the grinding could be internal in the transmition, jack the car up, put jack stands under the frame,block the tiers, and take a real good look at were the linckage conects to the tranny, good luck

When i put it in reverse it makes a loud clunk


Hi Ali,

This sounds like one or more of your motor/powerplant mounts is broken. Here is an easy test:

Have someone sit in the driver's sear with engine running and trans. in Park.
You stand in front with the hood open. Have them shift from Park to Reverse, and then Drive and back to Reverse and Park, taking time to stay in each gear and give some throttle while holding the brake pedal tight. This will rock or move the engine a certain amount as they shift through the gears and apply power lightly. It will move alot more violently with broken mounts.

If you have a clunking noise on Reverse shifts, you should be able reproduce this with the hood up and pinpoint the noise and/or sight the faulty motor mount with a friend's help. Good luck, I hope this puts you on the right track to fixing this annoying noise.

Sincerely, Tater Todd

My car will not go in reverse but will go forward


typical FWD GM transmission issue, the transmisson will have to be rebuilt. You could try a fluid flush and filter change but there are only 2 discs pack for reverse. Which makes them fail very easily
