Question about GMC Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 98 Gmc Jimmy and everytime I accelerate it makes this noise around the front passenger side and it sounds like when you would put a card in the spokes of a bicycle...? Any ideas of what this

Everytime you accelerate the noise gets louder and it gets quieter as you decelerate. But when it's idling it doesn't make this noise.

Sounds like you have a bad wheel bearing. Could also be a CV. Make sure you know what wheel before you replace anything. Jack it up and spin the wheel by hand. If correct wheel you will hear it. Hope this helps

SOURCE: clicking noise, 2004 Toyota 5-speed

Check your CV joints - usually you'll hear them clicking the most when you turn a corner while pressing on the gas, but they can make noise like that while you're driving straight. Given that it's most prominent above 35mph, I'm not sure that this is going to be the issue, but it's worth checking - if it is a CV joint, and it breaks, your car will coast to a stop and you won't be going anywhere except on the back of a flatbed.

My 1997 GMC jimmy is making a loud noise it seems to be coming from the passenger side front tire I check the hub it spinng good


If the problem is at the wheel, two possible causes are a bad wheel bearing or worn brake pads. Both of these noises will only be experienced with the vehicle on the ground and moving. Also, if this is a FWD truck and it only occurs when accelerating, it can also be caused by a failing drive axle or bad transfer case bearing.

I have a 99 jimmy. and when I put in four wheel drive I hear a noise kind of like skipping teeth passenger side front axle until four wheel drive locks in. and a loud clunk when coming out of four wheel...


the actuator for the hub locking is faulty and not engaging the hub correctly. There may be badly worn teeth to engage or broken parts in the hub.
Have an accredited drive line shop check it out.

1999 gmc jimmy front passenger side grinding noise


bad u-joint would be the first thing to look for if the sound is coming from just one side. when you engage the front axle, you put it under load and it shuts up.

98 gmc jimmy makes a rattling/clunking noise on right front side. Sounds like its coming from tire but checked brakes, rim, lug nuts, and such but found nothing. It does it on and off but mostly on and...


If the noise gets louder around corners while the 4WD is being used the Constant Velocity Universal joint is worn out, if not the truck probably needs stabilizer link rods they are fairly inexpensive but the CVU joints are not.
