Noise coming from front end and ABS/Stabilitrak errors

A few days ago a banging noise started from my front end. It only does it when I first start driving, after a while it goes away. This morning it was a few bangs, then a real lonnnnnggg noise. Then nothing. It still drives fine. This afternoon there was no noise but the ABS light came on and the dashboard gave an error msg of Service: Traction Control and Service: Stabilitrak Off Any ideas what this is? I don't even know where to start?

SOURCE: Stabilitrak remains on once I

Hello.... The stabilitrak system is controlled by the abs module. Its job is to maintain vehicle stability in situations where you may normally lose control by activating the abs system and/or changing the valving in the shock absorbers. When the message is displayed there is a problem in the system, could be an issue with a sensor or wiring. There are a couple of common problems with the system that require reprogramming the engine control module and the abs module. This must be performed at the dealer. The only way to know exactly what the issue is would be to have the abs computer scanned for trouble codes.
GM issued a couple of tech bulletins in regards to owners having this problem.
I hope this helps.

Auto trans... when first starting engine in morning and put into reverse or drive a loud noise coming from front end under bonnet. no noise if in park or neutral. noise goes away after a few minutes and...

not completely sure it has something to do with the auto trans, but more likely the hydraulic lifters. the older cars used to have a fixed valve clearance with tappets, but now they use hydraulic lifters. the problem with these is if you don't change the oil at a regular interval or do alot of stop-start driving, the oil becomes sludgy and does not flow into the small tolerance holes in the lifters. the beautiful thing about oil is that it thins out as it gets hotter to a point, so as the engine warms up, the oil thins out and flows into the lifter hydraulically pumping them up and closing the gap, i would suggest to change the engine oil to manufacturer's specs and add a "lifter free" product, after a few weeks it will reduce dramatically

Really the sound is so bad, but I dont worried about new converter; the problem would be in the front end; some adjustments may be pending, if more relaxed than we should the belt, will also be necessary to revise it. Remember that two days ago have returned recently to move the vehicle and there are always additional adjustments.

Clicking noise seemingly coming from front driver's side tire. When going really slow, you can hear an alomost spring-like noise

Good morning! If you vehicle is equipped with center caps or hub caps remove them all and drive vehicle to see if noise is still present. Had a few problem hubcaps on these. Your local salvage yard should have these if noise goes away with hubcap removal. Have a great day!

check your wheel bearings, brakes and backing plate, since you said the noise is proportionate to speed i'm pretty sure its your wheel bearing, does the noise change when you turn (get louder or softer?) if so, i'm 98% sure its the wheel bearing
