Question about 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer
I have a 2002 Trailblazer 2 wd, over 200,000 miles on it, recently had the motor replaced along with starter, motor mount, radiator, coolant overflow, battery & back axle. (There may be more that I am forgetting) Anyways, there is a strange "knocking" noise on the drivers side front. It happens when I accelerate, when I stop & even when I cut the wheel far to the left sometimes. It's not a constant noise and just started about a week ago. I can also feel a slight tapping on the floor board with my left foot when I hear the "knock". Can anyone help me in this department? Also, unrelated problem, My transmission does not resister on my dash board of what gear I am in, however the lights do work, it shows P, R, N, D, 1 & 2 this also happened with-in a few days. As you can see from above I am just about OVER putting anymore money into this thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
There are a lot of moving parts that could cause this. 1st place I'd check is your swaybar end links. These make knocking sounds and go out prematurely...cheap fix though. Others could be swaybar bushings, tie rod end, struts, upper and lower control arms to name a few.

If the noise happens when the engine is running and the truck is not moving... Its a good possibilty that its an engine problem.. Go see the person that replaced your motor.. And ask what it is? If there is no noise when stopped but running and you are pressing on the gas pedel increase RPM.then it could be something like a loose or broken shock.. or a cat converter loose and bumping into the floor.or the cat converter heat sheild loose.. You might try taking it to a different shop from the one that did the work and getting an estimate.. Most good mech. can pretty well pinpoint a knocking noise without taking anything apart and usually will give an estimate for free. If not for free go somewhere else.. I guess you got some kind of warrenty on the work you have had done?

SOURCE: Steering gear box knock
Lube your intermediate steering shaft. It is very easy. Remove the bolt in the shaft that you can see from under the hood and push the steering shaft up toward the firewall. Where the shaft goes into itself place some grease and work it back and forth. This will last quite a while, but is easy to do again if need be. Replace the bolt and you should be go to go. The dealer will charge you $150 to do the same job. The knock goes away as soon as you test it out.

Have a mechanic check lower control arm bushing at the rear of the control arm.It is a horizontal bushing retained by a vertical bolt clamping it to frame.The tire will move more forward and back more than it should during braking. canuck mechanic.
