You would be best to junk it, Maybe if its got a good motor and trans. you can get enought out of it to buy a desent car to drive. Sounds like its not road worthey, and best to be retired.

2000 GMC Sonoma 4x4 Has a constant loud Chirp that happens every few seconds whether idling or driving. I can not seem to locate where it is coming from but sounds like right under me in the drivers seat....


try this.. with the vehicle off..open the drivers door with the window down..sit in the seat and bounce up and down in the seat..listen for your squeak/chirp..I am thinking its either the seat mounts or the body mounts under the cab..you can spray wd 40 on the rubber cab mount bushings if you dont hear the sqeak when you bounce on the seat.. get out and grab the door by the far end of the window frame and shake the cab upand down.. you can use petroleum jelly on the seat rails under the seat for a lubricant..dont use regular grease because if you do..and get in with nice clothes on(and catch the bottom of your jacket under the side of the seat)..eeewww...if there is no sqeak, try starting..if you hear it now..its either mounts or a loose belt..

Front brake caliper on brivers side omn a 99 caravan keep locking up and smoking. i went through 3 calipers


Chances are the calipers are not at fault.You probably live in a northern state that puts salt on the roads in the winter time. Take a close look at the brake shoes. and where they mount. Often the manufacturer will put a thin metal plate over a caste iron iron caliper/brake pad mount. This is to give the brake pads a smooth surface to slide on. Take the the thin metal plates off of the bracket and file off the rust under neath the plates. The rust is expanding and pushing against the back of the thin plates causing the brake pads to bind and stick. This is then overheating the caliper and ruining it. Take a file and remove all the rust on the mounting brackets especially under the the brake pad slide plates. Once the brake pads move freely again the problem should go away.

I have a 1997 gmc sierra pickup and the cab mounts are rusting out very badly. The rest of the truck looks great but those cab mounts have become a real eye sore an making the truck look run down. My...


Those cab mounts can be purchased at a local GM dealer. I do believe, then I would suggest having it in a preffered body shop and they can be replaced. Another alternative is finding a used frame in good shape and swapping out frames. Steve

1993 toyota truck making popping noise under the cab when driving every now and then


It could be a mount, but I would also check the torsion bars. They have been known to snap. Get under the truck and look for the long bars going from the front suspension to under the cab. Look for any looseness, or clean metal, which would suggest rubbing. If the ride height of the truck seems off, especially side to side, thats a good indicator the torsion bars are either broken or adjusted wrong.

Rusted subframe


You may need to get rid of it. If the frame is rusted, it's only going to get worse. If the motor mount is not sitting just right, it will only get worse too. I would either sell it as is or have a welder to look at it to see if it's repairable.
