How to change a front wheel bearing on a 97 Jimmy?


Vibration is usually caused by drive shaft universal join wear, but could be tires. A bad wheel bearing will usually only make a noise and you would feel a roughness in the cab or the steering wheel. You can check the U-joints by going under the vehicle, grabbing the drive shaft and see if there is lateral play at either end. If it is this, you will cause a lot of damage if it comes loose at either end, so you should deal with it promptly.

I have a 1999 GMC Jimmy with a loud popping noise on the right Front tire area


Is this 4wd? If so, might be a drive-shaft joint or a wheel bearing? I wouldn't drive it till you get it checked out. I don't like popping noises.

You may have a axle bearing going out. You should jack the truck up and rock the wheel from top to bottom and see how much play is there and there should not be any rock. You could or should compare the rock from one side to the other side as a comparison. Just be aware you can get noise that travels along the frame in some cases and it is hard to determine just where it is coming from.

97 GMC K1500 4x4 not locking in/ blinking lights


When it is in 4x4 check and see if you can turn the front drive shaft. If you can the problem is in the front end. If you can't the problem is in the trasfercase.

Do you have the electric shift 4wd? If so, start by checking if there is power to the actuator on the transfer case.

ok you hear a noise in the dash and a noise under the truck. there will be two noises under the truck one puts the transfer case into gear the other locks the fromt axle. raise rear axle let truck idle in 4x4 look under truck is front shaft moveing if yes the 4x4 motor on the front axle is not working remove dissasemble clean lube reinstall. if the shaft does not turn do this same procedure on the elec motor on trans case..good luck you can replace your oil pump it may help vehicle
Looking at the motor from the front, it is behind carb and to the right of the distributor. It has 3 wires on it.
