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.

99 jimmy vibrating when i drive it. u joint? how to tell which one


You will have to get under the vehicle, and grab the drive shaft at each u-joint. Grab the first one, and move it up, down, and side to side to look for any play. Also pay attention to missing pieces, and missing clips that hold the u-joint in.

Another thing to check is your wheel bearings. Jack the rear up, and grab each tire at 3o'Clock and 9o'clock first, and then 12o'clock and 6o'clock. Wiggle/shake it looking for play. Do the front tires the same way. You should find it.

Most common reasons for vibrations

Uneven tire wear (alignment)
Unbalanced tires
Universal joints
bearings
drivetrain

I bought a tired 1994 gmc jimmy with a 4.3 vortec motor with 243,000 miles on it and just want to get more driving out of it. it is also 4wheel drive 1 problem i ,m having is that the oil pressure reads 40...


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.
