SOURCE: steering problems with my 98 Chevrolet k1500

There is a unit in the steering column called a steering speed sensor. Replace it and all is well. I had to do it on my 1998 Chevy at 140,000 miles and all is good. Have since done it on another 1500 and it corrected its problem too.

SOURCE: 2003 cavalier buzzing/growling noise

Aparently this is not an uncommon problem with third gen. cavaliers. As far as the temp being higher on driver side rotor, remember that is the side with the transmission, that side, as weird as it sounds is working harder than the other side because of engine drag and power being applied to that wheel. Does it sound like it could be air blowing through a part of the car vibrating something loudly? Im at a loss also, sorry didnt help much. I'll repost if I find anything for you.

Center differential


IF you are in constant 4wd then you will not have a centre diff unless you have an AWD. The difference is that AWD transfer cases have a centre diff that allows different road speeds between the front and rear diffs as in going over speed bumps and dips ion the road It is the same operation in the front and rear diffs that allow one wheel to go faster than the other when cornering. However in 4wd drive there is no diff action in the transfer case and both front and rear axles drive at the same speed regardless of speed bumps and dips in the road . This action produces what is known as torque wind up which results in the handling characteristics. This torque wind up places stress on all the drive line train and results in failures such as .that you describe.. This wind up is not noticeable when driving on loose surfaces slippery surfaces or in mud as it is allowed to escape when the wheels spin . If you have an AWD with diff lock capabilities then check that the diff lock is operating correctly

Makeing hard left turn or right turn front tires slide or vehl. acts like in 4wheel drive makes no noise when turning ether side drives very good


unless you are absolutely sure that it is not in 4wd --what you describe is the effect of 4wd on hard surface where there is a torque wind up in the drive train system trying to drive all wheels and not allowing a diff action to work

What could be causing a vibrating noise when going slow speeds but decreases when in faster speeds


Hi Chris, I'm glad to help! Vibrating / Roaring sounds can be anything from rear or front diff problems. Drive Line U-Joint problem. Wheel bearing bad. Even transmission problem. You have to pin-point where the vibration is, is it in the front, in the rear, on the right or on the left. Is it in the center of the vehicle and so on. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Chris!

wd diff lock only locks the front to rear diffs not the 2 wheels on the same diff. To have both front wheels driving as you require will need limited slip diff in front or locker in front Be hard to steer in tight areas but they are available.

I got a 1997 gmc jimmy 4wd my 4wd doesnt engage the front diff but it engages the ****** for low range ive checked my actuator pump and its moving but now i have a rattling noise in my front drivers side...


It would appear you have a failed CV shaft on your drivers side front. If the axle is jumping around, that means the 4wd is engaged, but the front wheels can't pull because the one axle is just freewheeling. Replace that left axle and you should be good to go. Might want to check the cv boots on the right side axle while you are there.

Where does diff lock display come on dash or button


diff lock displays on dash and is opperated by a dial to the left of the steering column. the center diff lock is operated by a button in the center dash and locks your center differential, making your front and rear driveshafts turn at the same speed. the front and rear differentials lock either your front or rear or both differentials making each wheel on the same axle turn at the same speed. all of these features are for increased traction in off road and wet conditions and situations

1998 Chevy Blazer making clicking noise in front


Check the ft diff actuater. Sounds like the ft diff isn't complelely disengaging when in 2 wheel drive. Also I'm not sure but I think that the fr driveshaft should not be turning when in 2 wd. If it is turning then you could have a problem with the transfercase.

Place vehicle in 4wd (high or low). This will hold the front drive shaft still for the rest of the test. Jack up the front end of the vehicle. Remove the actuator. Have a buddy spin the right front wheel while you use a long punch or screwdriver to try to manually engage the diff. The left front wheel should spin in the other direction if the diff is good. Also before you check the diff you need to grab the front driveshaft and make sure it is locked, If it spins freely when the truck is in park and in 4wd with the front end raised then problem is in transfer case. If you can't make the diff engage manually with punch then the problem is in the diff. If front diff engages manually then the problem is the actuator. Hope this helps..
