Question about 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara

1 Answer

Drive Train Noise

Dec 2005 Grand Vitara. When I turn a tight right I hear a low rumbling noise from the drive train. It goes away when the vehicle is tracking straight. Could this be some problem with the central diff. It also makes a whirring noise most prominent at 6o km/h and remains until I come to a complete stop. It is still under warranty and the dealer states the noise is normal. Funny it hasn’t done it in the first 50,000k’s. Thanks any ideas would be appreciated.

Sounds like a wheel bearing. Get another diagnosis from a good shop or two..

Why is there a knocking sound from the top of the engine?


disable each cylinder one at a time. If the noise goes away it is likely a rod knock and is terminal. A new engine is the only way to resolve. If it does not go away than it is possible it is a wrist pin, also terminal, or in the valve train.

if you think it could be in the valve train try this. Add 1/2 can of seafoam motor tune to the oil. Start the car and let it run. If the noise goes away it was a valve train issue. change the oil and make sure you are keeping up with the proper maintenance for you vehicle.

if the noise continues than i would seek a professional ear to listen to eat and give an opinion.

GROANING FROM REAR PORTION OF DRIVE TRAIN AFTER BACKING UP SLOWLY WITH STEERING HARD OVER, THEN REVERSING STEERING DIRECTION AND GOING FORWARD.


If the car was recently serviced and they did the diff oils,the wrong oil or a 'friction modifier' was not added.Limited slip diffs need a different oil to other diffs.The noise you hear is the clutch plates inside the diff,shuddering.In a straight line,the noise goes away.Hope this helps

Drive train noise


likely pinion bearing or carrier bearings. They howl, characteristically, and the howl changes frequency with speed. Do check the u-joints first, though.
