Question about 2000 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

Back rear wheels under the frame part

I drove my 2000 chevrolet suburban as the vehicle was moving it felt like the emergency brakes automatically went on although it wasn't on then it began knocking from the back rear wheels, when my husband checked it there was oil leaking badly from the back and when he drove again it began knocking really bad. The leak came from a round part from the back what could that part be? Is it replaceable? How much will that estimate be to refix it?

First, STOP DRIVING IT!!! it sounds like your rear differential.

Best case scenario, it has a leak on the gasket and that is why you saw the oil spill. If that's the case it is a pretty simple fix: buy a new gasket and refill.

Worst case scenario, the leak has damaged your gears. You will be able to tell this when you take off the cover, if there are a lot of metal shavings you may be in for a costly repair.

I can't emphasize enough tho, DO NOT DRIVE IT right now. not until you find out. if you havent hurt anything, you may be alright, but if you drive it you WILL be in for some trouble

97 mountaineer will not move in reverse


Could be the rear Emergency brakes are binding. Jack up the rear of the vehicle, put it in neutral and attempt to turn the rear wheels by hand.

You do not have to use the Emergency brakes to have problems with them. The linings fall off the metal shoe and bind up on the turning drum within the rear rotor. Then when the direction of rotation changes, the remaining brake linings regroup and jam the other way.

Sometimes the loose lining jams into small bits, pulverized, and sometimes form large chunks that jam the brakes.

Another potential problem you can check with the rear wheels off the ground and in neutral is the U-joints on the driveshaft. Popping is a symptom of play in the joints. Binding is a possibility but the joint is close to breaking at this point.

1)check that the park brakes are not seized on.
2)check the driveshaft where it connects on the differential.
broken driveshafts and universal joints are common on those.

Parking brake cable snapped but brake is on. any


Under the dash, where the break release handle is, you'll see a lever where the release cable is/was attached to. Either push forward, or pull back this lever and it will release the parking break. BE CAREFUL the foot peddle for the parking break doesn't hit you in the face!
Mine broke on the 2nd of this month as well....

2000 Suburban turning, backing issues


You need to check the power steering fluid, the alignment. Take it into a small service shop and let them put it up on the rack and check all the fluids and align the front end, and see if they can get a clear idea of what is going on. You need to know that the vehicle is safe .
