Question about 2004 GMC Yukon

1 Answer

My 2004 Yukon has a clicking noise coming from the left rear tire when driving at freeway speeds. It comes and goes but has became more frequent. The check tire monitor message came on but when I to

The clicking noise rata tat tat, rata tat tat has to be something making contact as the wheel turns, but doesn't do it all the time? Les schwaab said they spun balanced the wheel and could only faintly hear something on the balancer? Then it would have to be inside the wheel? This is not a good sound and is getting worse. The vehicle has 75,000 miles with one owner and excellent maintenance.

Your last sentence in the heading got cut off. I'm skeptical that such a noise would be from inside the wheel, but to check switch your front and rear on that side, or just use the spare on LR for a day or so and see if clicking goes away. From your description, it will probably be hard to spot visually. A mechanic may have to listen to it, or look into it.
Good luck.

SOURCE: rattling sound in steering (at low speeds)

I sounds like you need to grease the intermediate shaft. GM sells a kit that consists of a plug and a bag of grease for around $18. It has been a few years since I bought it so the price could have went up. They also offer an update shaft for around $100. I am nearly 100% sure this is your problem. I have a 03 Yukon and have done it 3 times in 120,000 miles.

There are a few other posibilities, but they are not so cheap. The next logical problem could be the power steering pump or the valve in the gear box.

Differential noise


indicates axle bearing failure rather than diff problems
diff failure is indicated by a growling noise on acceleration or deceleration or a constant harmonic hum while driving at a steady speed
from your description of where the noise is most pronounced indicates wheel bearings

Clicking noise during turning,


I'm going to assume that the Yukon is a 4X4, and will therefore also assume that the clicking noise is coming from one of the two drive axles (likely the right side). Check under the truck near the wheels and you will see the drive axles with a rubber bellows boot on either end. It is likely that the boot closest to the wheel has torn and allowed the grease to escape the constant velocity (CV) joint. The boot or possibly the axle will have to be replaced.

My 2004 Yukon left rear wheel has a clicking noise coming from it sometimes, usually when at freeway speeds, but comes and goes. It is becoming louder and more frequently. Now the service tire monitor...


sometimes you can get a stone etc in there and sits in the bottom running round, it could also be the adjuster is out of place could be the retaining plate pin has come lose. for the parking brake. just remove and fix. you may find it hard to remove the disc/parking disc. so back off the cable, and tap it off, youtube has videos on removing the disc etc.

2000 Chevy Blazer 4x4...started making a horrible loud noise after my cruise control went out. I have recently replaced my hub and the brake pads and the CV axle. The noise comes and goes and only happens...


does it get louder above 45-60mph? and much quieter at low speeds. It could be wheel bearings, a rear differential or front differential. If its a grinding humming noise its wheel bearings, listenin to see if theyre coming from the front or rear, left or right, or both when your driving to know what wheel bearing are bad. If its a whinning noise, its probably a differential. check and listen to hear if its coming from the front or rear. Also, check for loose plastic around the wheels. Lastly check your tires for uneven or choppy wear. move your hands front to back on the top of the tire. does it feel really choppy and rough, maybe you just need new tires

Rear on a2004 astro van awd v-6 locks up when making turn's left or right.but does'nt do it when gowing forward or reverse.


Rear end is a lockup dif. This couples both wheels.It has clutches that allow inner and outer weels to turn at different speeds when going around corner, thus eliminating most tire scrub. If noise is coming from dif. change dif oil and redress clutches.Driving in a straight line with a lockup dif. would not normally be noticed,because both rear wheels are travelling at the same speed.
