Question about 2007 GMC Sierra Classic

1 Answer

Two piece drive shaft vibrating

Where the drive shafts join in the center the "rubber boot" seems to be bad. Both shafts have alot of movement when I push/pull on the shafts. The vehicle vibrates at different speeds and at different times. Wheels and tires have been force balanced at the dealership and the tires are new.

Check & make sure (with engine off) that the fan blades are not loose & that the fan clutch spins freely.Remove engine belts & run the engine for a short period in search of a vibration.This will eliminate any belt driven accessory.-


There is always the possibility of a balancer(on the crankshaft) shifting & causing an imbalance.To eliminate this the balancer can be inspected & removed if necessary.


There is also the possibility of a transmission torque converter coming apart or slung off a balance weight.To eliminate this, the converter must be unbolted from the engine flywheel & the engine run to check the difference.


Also check, Suspension Vibration or Frame Beaming.

This is accomplished by tying the rear axle to the frame via an articulating sway bar and endlinks that supports and stabilizes the housing unit by means other than spring tension (via rear leaf springs).Also check to see if the load is making the exhaust ground out against the frame.---------

Also check the u-joints.--------

This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Here is the part that I asked about,now my question is can I buy the rubber n clamp separate?

if your referring to the rubber boot on the shaft---yes you can
you can get genuine that will require you to remove the shaft from the vehicle so that the new boot can be installed
you can buy after market boot that allows you to place the boot around the joint and clip it together
It is a cheaper fix but will require careful fitting to get it to seal at the joined edges properly
Bands are supplied with either part
An accredited specialist drive shaft will have either boot kit and will be able to do wither job peoperly

Please describe your how to change a drive shaft on a nissan quest 1997 problem:

two axles, different for ach side. Passenger side has a carrier on the half shaft, driver side is one solid link. Loosen lug nuts, the you need a 36mm socket to loosen the center nut on the drive shaft, same for both sides. Remove the cotter pin and retainer before loosening the center nut. Jack up the vehicle and secure with jack stands. Remove wheels. Remove brake calipers and tie up out of the way. Loosen and remove lower strut bolts (2) and lower ball joint bolts (3). Swing center knuckle out and off the drive shaft. On passenger side, loosen carrier bolts (3) halfway up the drive shaft, above the exhaust pipe and crossmember. This is a pain on the 94, but easier on later models. The passenger shaft has two half shafts joined at the carrier. No retainer clip is used, so pull on the end of the shaft and it will come out. Iff the inner CV boot is puked, it will probably come out in two pieces. You may have to use a large screwdriver to pry the inner shaft out of the transaxle. The driver side does not use a carrier and will come out with a strong pull. It does use a retainer clip on the inside end of the driveshaft. You can get new driveshafts with cvs as an assembly at most auto parts stores, about 60-80 bucks with exchange. Be sure the new driver side shaft has the new retainer clip on it. Assembly is reverse of dissassembly, but make sure to tighten everything up good.

Drive Shaft center support bearing is vibrating/shimmying How do you know when it is bad?

The short answer is when it vibrates and shimmies its bad. The bearing tolerances of a new center support should not allow this to occur, however this could be caused by an external force such as a poorly balanced (or damaged) drive shaft.

Crank shaft belt pully not turning ,engine runs fine,

Hello Gordon.
Haven't seen that happen for a while.
The harmonic balancer on your car has two pieces joined together by bonded rubber to reduce vibration. The rubber has let go and is spinning on itself.
You need to replace the balancer.

Rhythmic vibration in 1986 bmw 735i

If I remember correctly, does your drive shaft have a locking coller
nut between the 2 sections. If there is a locking collar nut, make sure to not overtightend it. When the driveshaft changes loads, the 2 piece driveshaft should have the ability to slide, and that is why the collar nut should not be over tightend. One other thing to look for is when bolting the transmission bracket to the frame, make sure that it is equal on both sides, otherwise the transmission can sit crooked. It's been a while since I have worked on a pre-90's 7. Hopefully you won't need that driveshaft.
