Check your universal joints. At least one of them in the driveshaft is bad, usually the back one. This is a serious matter as the driveshaft could fall out of the truck and dig into the asphalt.

SOURCE: Just replaced the rear brake

You should take the wheels off and check the caliper bolts to make certain they are tight-also, the anti rattle clips may not be installed properly, check them visually-rotate the disks and watch the caliper to see if there is any movement. Probably something basic, but you need to inspect it as it could become damaging or, worse, dangerous.

05 chevy malibu won't accelrate


Check compression. If its a 4 cylinder that's fairly easy with a compression gauge. All 4 cylinders should be around 180-190 psi. If all 4 are low suspect a jumped timing chain.

1992 olds cutlass supreme wont accelerate when pushing the gas pedal


Check oil first, Low oil sensor will shut down if more than a quart low. Change fuel filter, could be fuel starvation, change the air filter. stopped up air filter will put MAF sensor out of range. PERFORM OBDII SCAN SOON.

IN summer the accelrator does nt work and automatic gear goes to lower number for low speed.


Depending on the indicator rapid acceleration will downshift for passing this is normal.

Sante fe shakes violently accelerating 65 to 75 no light on


Check the constant velocity ball joints. They are usually hidden under a rubber boot. They split, dirt gets in and the bearings were away. The play will cause vibration and is typical to do it on curves. You can stop in a car park and with the windows wound down and radio off, turn the tightest circle you can at low speed. Listen for a clunking noise. Then turn on the opposite lock.

Trans clunking when slowing down


Sounds like youi may have a few serious problems going on to have that kind of back lash occuring at higher speeds. I have experiance with low spped clunks on Bronkos and your type of vech being a car dealer. One you might try for low speed clunk on take off and braking at stop likts just completeing a stop? Pull the drive shaft and lubricate the splin - two check your leaf springs for weakness and wore bushings - take a look at your shocks - three u bolts holding springs to rear axle housing may be letting the axle housing actually dip or tweak or all those thing in combination - now you may have some serious slop in the pig - transfer case may be causing that clunk - as far as high spped clunk and activity you have a serous problem and you just might drop the transferr case have an accident fliping over..............Mike South Bend Indiana don't just keep driving and making problem worst...........
